Installing and Running IIS and Apache Server Together on Windows Vista or Windows XP or Windows Server 2003

[Edit] Added new posts: Run IIS behind Apache. and adding more than one IP address to your computer
I run Vista and I have been using Apache for last one month. I wanted to run Python on Apache using FastCGI module mod_fastcgi but a compiled Windows version of this module was not available from FastCGI web site. So, I decided to use IIS7’s built-in FastCGI support.
If you want to run both IIS7 and Apache web server together, than here’s the information you need, just the solution for you. By default IIS7 would listen to all IP addresses your machine is assigned and it means that you can install IIS on your system but you can not run IIS web sites until you turn off Apache HTTP server. In a situation like this IIS will throw this error when trying to start a website.

Improve performance by placing Application.cfc or Application.cfm, or ColdFusion might locate and execute a file above web root directory

A close look at the following screen clipping will show you exactly why it is important to place an Application.cfc or an Application.cfm file under your web root. If your web root or the requested page’s directory does not have an Application.cfc or Application.cfm file then ColdFusion would search up the directory tree to locate either of the files until it reaches root directory (C:\ andin my case D:\). This is NOT a bug.

Symptoms: You might get an error that pkgmgr process could not be detected. Additionally during installation you will see an error saying web connector failed and you need to manually configure the web connector with your web server, either Apache or IIS. It might also ask you to set your firewall to unblock a port number - 51020, 51011, or 51800.Simple Solution:Note: You don’t have to go through all this if, surprise, you had installed 64bit of ColdFusion on your 64bit OS. Therefore, I'd recommend that you use 64bit version of ColdFusion when you are running 64bit version of Vista OS or Linux or Mac OS X.If you are running ISS 7 and Vista y…
