Every time I try to install DesktopServer Limited I get the error that… “It appears you already have a web server running.” I unchecked everything in the sharing panel and still get the error. I have had MAMP installed previously, but have uninstalled it. I performed a Spotlight search and there are some MAMP files found. I’m not sure if it is safe to delete them or not. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
That did it. Go to Terminal and type in “sudo apachectl stop” press return. Enter your password and press return. Installed fine. Mavericks defaults with Apache running and there is no way to turn it off in System Preferences. There’s an option to click “Internet Sharing” which is quite confusing.
