Setup snag with port#

I installed MapStack on my MacBook (Intel Core2Duo, 2.16GB) and then downloaded DokuWiki. In trying to install DokuWiki I get an error on the WebServerPort window (8080 was the default Apache web server port listed)

Question: What other number is relevant? How do I find what port was used in the MapStack installation?

FYI: My proficiency level with the TERMINAL is limited to opening it and closing it (so appreciate very detailed instructions if working through the backend is necessary).
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Are you installing both MAMPStack and DokuWiki Stack? If that’s the case it isn’t necessary, as DokuWiki Stack already includes MAMPStack (that’s the reason the installer tells you that the port is already being used)

Cheers

Thanks! Next question then—how do I uninstall MAMPStack?

You’re welcome :)

You have an uninstaller located at the installation folder (just open it from Finder)

Hi Antonio-
I was interrupted for days—uninstalled Mampstack and installed DoKuWiki….. or tried, but had small child hit some key in the midst of the install (after putting in user name, password, etc). Now I do have a dokuwiki folder and files on my computer but no uninstall component to be found—and trying to reinstall gives me the 8080 message I had before with Mampstack. I’m feeling like a total bozo here. Help! thanks in advance

No big deal: for each installation path there’s a file named ctlscript.sh. By typing

./ctlscript.sh stop

from the installation folder you will stop the servers, therefore being able to delete the stack without leaving any server running.

Thanks for the quick response. your ./ctlscript.sh stop looks ominously like UNIX, a language I do not speak. If I open the terminal…. it opens in bash with
MacBook:~mdmd$
that’s about as far as I get. Where/How is the installation path found? and how do I get there? Thanks for the hand-holding.

If you didn’t change the default path, the stacks should be installed in /Applications. Look from Finder for mampstack and dokuwikistack and you willl get the names (we append the version to the name). To stop the servers, type from the Terminal

/Applications/mampstack-0.9.4/ctlscript.sh stop

And to delete the folder

rm -r /Applications/mampstack-0.9.4

Bear into mind that this is just an example, your installation path may vary.

Cheers

I installed in the default. When I look through finder I get neither mampstack nor anything with dokuwiki or with stack.
I went into terminal and looked in my username /applications and didn’t find it. I went to the main directory and did ls /applications and didn’t find it. For kicks I tried the two command you kindly provided only to get a no such file or directory notice.
I feel like an idiot.
Any further suggestions will be greatly appreciated as I’m stuck….
TIA

Stop! I don’t know what happened…. I just tried to reinstall (faith, not data-driven….) and it worked. I’m confused as to why it works now, as I hadn’t ever had a message that wasn’t “no such” , etc. Anyhoo, I’m up and running. Thanks for your help and patience!
