installing XAMPP

I already have MySQL installed on my PC ... Also, I have Apache installed. By downloading XAMPP, will this overwrite my current MySQL and Apache that I have installed on my PC. Also, I have IIS installed ... I have been told that Apache can co-exist with IIS. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

It will not overwrite your current MySQL and Apache; however, you can only have one Apache and MySQL process running, unless you use VirtualHosts; search this forum for more info on that.

Not sure about IIS, I don't use IIS. Just search it on Google.

Thats not correct. You can run more than one Apache, MySQL, etc. if they all have their own ports to listening to. VirtualHosts is for other things.

IIS is like every other Webserver listening on port 80, but can also be configurated to use a different port.
