I usually use the mamp server on my Mac, but yesterday I ran this script.



expand_dir () {
  pushd "$1" >/dev/null
  popd >/dev/null

expand_dir `dirname $0`


if [ -e "$WWW_BASE"/orbit ]; then
    echo 'Nothing to be done - linked already.'
    echo "Going to add link in $TARGET - 'sudo' may ask you for your password."

    ln -s "$DIR"/server/www/orbit $TARGET

    if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
        echo 'Done.'
        echo 'Failed (not an admin user or failed to authenticate).'

read -n 1 -s -p 'Press any key to continue...'

How to undo this script I cant run my default server and all my aliases does not work any more?

This script could only create symbolic link /Library/WebServer/Documents/orbit which points to $DIR/server/www/orbit where $DIR (expand_dir function populates this variable) is a directory location of a script at the time of execution. By removing said link named /Library/WebServer/Documents/orbit you should undo the effects of the script.
