How do I turn off IIS?

Please excuse a very basic question. I have IIS installed locally because I have two websites that are windows/asp and I need to continue to support them.

I just purchased the book about PHP and mySQL and want to learn how to use PHP. I have installed PHP and Apache locally and can see how to start and stop the Apache server.

My question is, how do I disable IIS when I want to work with Apache? I can’t uninstall it, I need to be able to switch back and forth. The best of all worlds would be to avoid rebooting in between if that is possible. I looked in services but didn’t see anything called IIS.

Thanks in advance,

Look for “World Wide Web Publishing Service” in your services panel.

Thank you!

here’s how I do it. I have a shortcut on my desktop to the Internet Information Services that I launch and click the stop button. You can find that under Control Panel/Administrative Tools. Then I can turn on Apache (using WAMP server). Reverse procedure to use IIS.

You could change port of Apache too. Lets say that IIS will use port 80 and Apache port 8080.
