Thank you for all that info. Now, I have a question; If I install Apche,
I need IIS7? or do I still need to have IIS7 in oder to run Apache?
Also I was reading the Apache installation for Windows and here is
don't know how to manage:
Run the Apache .msi file you downloaded above. The installation will ask
for these things:
1. Network Domain. Enter the DNS domain in which your server is or will be
registered in. For example, if your server's full DNS name is
server.mydomain.net, you would type mydomain.net here.
This is the domain name that's usually assigned by the DHCP server, in most
end-user setups the router functions as a DHCP server
2. Server Name. Your server's full DNS name. From the example above, you
type server.mydomain.net here.
3. Administrator's Email Address. Enter the server administrator's or
webmaster's email address here. This address will be displayed along with
messages to the client by default.
Since you will be the server's administrator, this should lead to you
4. For whom to install Apache Select for All Users, on Port 80, as a
Recommended if you'd like your new Apache to listen at port 80 for
traffic. It will run as a service (that is, Apache will run even if no one
logged in on the server at the moment) Select only for the Current User,
Port 8080, when started Manually if you'd like to install Apache for your
personal experimenting or if you already have another WWW server running
To install it as a service on port 80, IIS should not be running any sites
on the same port
5. The installation type. Select Typical for everything except the source
and libraries for module development. With Custom you can specify what to
install. A full install will require about 13 megabytes of free disk
This does not include the size of your web site(s).
Question 1: This is my personal computer, how do I know the DNS domain in
which my server is?
Try opening a command-prompt and entering the following command
Q 2: what is my server's full DNS name?
see above answer
Q3: I sthis an email addres from the computer server or from my ISP?
this is your email
Q4: I guess here I should do this: for the Current User, on Port 8080
In case you might want to have multiple accounts on your computer it would
make more sense to run is as a system service
Q5: I usually like to install Full packages.
Install what you need, what isn't there can't be abused
Pardon my inorance, I am trying to learn here.
Then, I had this problem before : corruction of my ISS7, the first time I
installed Vista, I belive back in february, I runned into this problem
some reason my IIS7 got corruct it (don't have a clue why) and I had the
problem, I was not able to reinstall IIS7 without having to format my
from scratch (pain in the bud). Is there any way that I can unistall IIS
reinstall it without having to reformat my whole computer?
That should be possible, never tried it
I am really confuse here, I have been working a couple of years now as a
designer and this is still a black whole for me. I really want to get a
understanding of how server work and how configure then. I really
help to get me to a new level of understanding.
All I see at this point is the need to reconfigure my computer, but I will
wait untill some responses to this Post to make a desicion.
If you want you CAN run PHP under IIS either by installing the PHP
interpreter or the PHP compiler for .NET I talked about earlier, it was a
pretty painless process for me , off course your IIS configuration has to be
correct no less than your APACHE configuration has to be
Thanks once again.
