No, they can run concurrently.What you need to do is change the port that apache listens on. Open the httpd.conf file in the apache conf folder. Find the line that says LISTEN: and append :8080. This tells apache to listen on port 8080

Then to access the page

Subject: [PHP-DB] Apache Service Could not be started
Date: Thu, 16 Mar 2006 11:45:25 +0100

BlankHello everyone,

I just installed WAMP5 and the Apache Service could not be started. I also tried XAMPP but the problem persists. I suspect that the problem could be attributed to the Microsoft's IIS I already installed on this machine. http://localhost displays Microsoft's Welcome to IIS 5.1 page. Do I need to remove Micorsoft's IIS in order to activate Apache?

Best regards,

Kinfe T.
