Apache on Windows dedicated server
« on: February 03, 2010, 08:17:45 AM »
Hello,
my company needs to purchase a dedicated server and since we use some windows apps to integrate a gis/map webservice, we think we will purchase a Windows 2003 powered one (we were thinking about a dedicated III server with Windows 2003). My questions are: can we install any application we want on our ded server? Is it possible to replace the standard IIS server with Apache? 

Thanks!

You can have Apache installed on a Windows server, but do NOT try to run IIS and Apache on it at the same time -- they will conflict. You can have Apache listen on an alternate port if you so choose, but if you have them both listening on port 80, everything web-related will stop working.
