Thread: IIS and Apache

    IIS and Apache


    May be somebody have an experience to use both web-servers simulteneously.

    I run windows 2003 Server with IIS 6.0 as main web-server. Now I need to install Apache as well. I have several IP-addresses. IIS uses two of them. Third IP I want to assign with Apache. But it doesn't work. Apache can bind to this address only when I stop IIS. Of cource, I've removed from IIS's website's properties third IP, so IIS should not listen it and this IP is not listed in netstat's output when IIS runs. But Apache cannot bind to it.

    Please, explain is it possible to use both web-servers or how to check which process listens third IP.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can do this, but you need to have them listening on different ports, eg IIS on port 80 (standard) and Apache on port 8000 (for example). The latter would need URLs of the form

    so I'm not sure I see the point to be honest.

    Agreed. Why not through up another box and run Apache seperately?

    An easier way is to disable socket pooling;EN-US;813368

    net stop http /y

    httpcfg set iplisten -i IP (put in the IP you want the IIS to use)

    After finishing

    net start w3svc

    The IIS will listen to the IPs you define in httpcfg, the spare IP can be use for Apache and can use the standard port 80
