I am on the macosx lion. Something is ready to go on localhost:8080.

This particular service is definitely an apache + php packed by entreprisedb.

How could I take away the autostart ?

1) The autostart is generally not within the User-Autostart-Products, but you can examine them anyway:

Open the System-Preferences > Customers > Choose your user > Start-Objects

See if there's something began you need to deactive and achieve this if.

2) Normally the beginning of apache is handled through the launchd-service: You may either change this by hand, or with the aid of a old little tool named "Lingon". To get it done by hand, you have to discover the launchd-folders:




There you will find .plist-files, that comprise when and things to start. To get rid of a object from auto-start use launchctl around the terminal to take it out of the particular launchd after which simply remove the file.

user$ launchctl unload *filename.plist*

Make certain you don't remove the incorrect files! This leads to a fatal situation in your machine. Btw: The .plist-Files could be read with BBEdit, TextWrangler or even the PropertyList Editor in the Apple Developer-Tools.
