Mac OS X has an install of apache by default, the control script for that


if your installing MAMP (or a custom setup) you'll want to deactivate the 
installation ... go to System Preferences > Sharing then turn off "Web Sharing"

if you want to deinstall MAMP there should be a deinstaller program in 
once you've run that you can just delete that whole directory. then you can try 
to install
again by mounting the MAMP .dmg file and running the installer.

this is a permissions thing - you need to run the command using sudo (as 
explained in
another post)
