Windows Vista SP2
XAMPP 1.7.4 installed in C:\xampp on stand alone computer
IIS 7 (needed for Visual Studio programs)
I am new to XAMPP as well as servers and after installation have also found that Microsoft web server IIS has taken over http:/localhost as well as port 80.
Apache cannot start as port80 is "busy" (presumably IIS has taken it over)
http://localhost /xampp cannot find the XAMPP demo page as IIS causes it to look in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot folder instead of somewhere in C:\xampp
There are some Googled links below that give some info on a fix to run XAMPP as well as IIS, but which is the best way (XAMPP will be main useage)?
Can someone take me through the necessary changes in simple steps for XAMPP 1.7.4 to run with IIS installed ?
