[ms4w-users] Setting Up Apache

G'day Stephen,

I'll preface this with saying I have limited experience with Windows,  
but I suspect you will have to stop the IIS service prior to running  
the install.bat for the apache server. I think this can be done  
through the Administrative Tools -> Services.

You may also have to configure the Windows Firewall once the apache  
service is running to allow the apache service through it. I recall  
having to do this, but I have installed once, and am still happily  
using that installation.

It may also be possible to change the network port that Apache is  
listening on, but I would try the above items first.

There are many others with a better understanding than I, so I hope  
they might help as well.
