I have Windows 7 64 bit and have installed apache 2.2.17-win32-nssl.msi, mysql 5.5.17-winx64.msi (windows service) and phpmyadmin 220.127.116.11 and have just download php 5.3.5-win32-vc6.msi (which I will be installing).
my question is some people say that you cannot have apache and IIS on listening on the same port. here is the thing. I want to learn to program the above languages only for personal use and not at present for commercial. I have installed apache as a windows service but I configured that I would manually start it. I would like to know is there a way to temporarily configure IIS to stop listening on the port while I an using apache and once this is done can I not restart IIS for the other programs that need it. If so how?
Which is better Apache or IIS?.
Thanks for your response
