WAMP on 2003 (cc3)
I will be putting WAMP onto our 2003 server, as I want to have php / mySQL access for a new intranet site that I want to create.
Currently IIS only has the ASP/ACCESS option in which we are currently using for certain apps.
My question is, if I install this and get it all working, will I lose my ASP/ACCESS function, as we still need to run these apps, before I transferr them to php/mySQL?

It should be perfectly possible to run both server stacks side by side but obviously you can't run them on the same ports.
Apache and IIS will both want to run on port 80 by default so you'll have to change one to another port and then access it via

I will remember to change that after installation.
Another quick thing. Will WAMP need a reboot of the server after installation? obviously if it does, I will need to do out of hours.

Shouldn't do, I know for a fact that xampp (apache friends) dosn't. I would imagine none of them do as there designed for a linux enviroment where you don't want to reboot everytime you install software.

We run WAMP (and I'd rather it were LAMP) for our intranet.
Use the Apache package to install it so that it goes on as a service, and then when you make config changes you can just restart the service. The monitor goes in the tray too to make it even simpler.
Getting all the PHP modules to load properly is a task though. I think I had to specify the location of php.ini in Apache's config, and copy the modules to system32 if I remember right. It was a while ago.

Do you need Apache? It's perfectly possible to have PHP and MySQL running with IIS - you then avoid the need to have different ports for the 2 services (which will lead to grief - I've done it :-))

Another option to consider might be running a virtual server with Linux on it.

No, I dont want apache (I think), I just want to install another joomla site, but this time have it as our intranet with a different template than our website.

Can you PM me the details to get PHP/mySQL working? that would be great?
