How to go from IIS7 to Apache

Postby capella07 » 04. February 2009 13:02

I've been using IIS7 on my Vista machine and just installed XAMPP 1.7.

What do I need to do to get the Apache server to handle the Web stuff - if I type http://localhost in a browser address bar, I still get the IIS logo.

Also, can I used the MySQL GUI tools with XAMPP? I.e. just install the Tools & use it normally - or is there anything different that I need to do?

Thanks!

Thanks for the link.

Is it possible to have both Apache and IIS running? I.e., I sometimes do some work in Visual Studio, which requires IIS...

Yes but you will need to change ports 80 and 443 in the server configuration files that Apache Listens on.

apache\conf\httpd.conf - Listen 80 to another port number 8080 for example
apache\conf\extra\httpd_ssl.conf - Listen 443 to another port number for example 4433
(you will find more references to port 443 in this file and they all need changing to the example port 4433 and the same in the httpd.conf file all references to port 80 would need changing to the example port 8080).

Save the files and restart Apache - best practice to make a backup or Copy of conf and ini files before editing.

You will need to add the port number in every URI used in your browser when accessing addresses in XAMPP, for example:
http://localhost:8080/
https://localhost:4433/
