    Question How do I "uninstall" Apache, Mysql and PHP on a mac OS X?

    I am working on my first ecommerce site using ZenCart. My machine is a mac g4 running OSX 10.2. and I am attempting to set up Apache, Mysql and PHP for testing before I load the site up to the remote server.

    I tried to set up a local server using a all-in-one installer called WebServerX Kit (http://wserverxkit.sourceforge.net/ ). When this option failed I wanted to remove it so that I could start fresh with better individual installations I found at Server Logistics (http://www.serverlogistics.com), but I am clueless how to do this without compromising the perfomance of my computer - the installer did not come with an Uninstaller. The Server Logistics versions of AMP will install in my user library folder so I was wondering if I should even be concerned with removing the WebServerX package? Will running this other version of AMP cause a conflict on my system?

    Thanks for reading...

    Mac OS X comes with Apache 1.31, and you can get PHP and MySQL from www.entropy.ch.

    See the uninstallation instructions that came with the software you tried to install.

    Thanks Maxor for your reply,

    The problem is that there were no uninstall directions, as I stated.
    On entropy, while it is an excellent resource, the installs from server logistics are simpler and I prefer where they install the packages.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I just went ahead and did a fresh install on my laptop. I'll fool with the desktop later when i have time.
