I’m currently using XAMPP / MAMP / WAMP / Bitnami / InstantWP / AMPPS / Web Matrix, can I use DesktopServer?

You cannot run DesktopServer and another webserver or MySQL database engine at the same time. You should uninstall or disable your existing webserver and MySQL engine before running DesktopServer. Pay careful attention as some services like to restart themselves or run when you reboot your computer. Programs like Microsoft Web Matrix fail to uninstall completely and might prevent DesktopServer from starting correctly. Be sure to check the troubleshooting section at the bottom of our install guide and feel free to ask us for assistance. With a proper installation of DesktopServer, you can save countless hours!
