Ken, in Apache, it is called Virtual Hosting. I am sure that you know what I am referring to. If I go to the server OS, will I still be able to run programs on the machine? I also own and therefore host a mail server and FTP server on this machine, while running other programs (ie: Office XP, Outlook, as well as other programs).

You will need to have Apache listen on one IP address, and IIS on the other. To do that, disable socket pooling in IIS: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=259349 Cheers Ken ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ From: "David Waldrop" <waldrop at wtxcoxmail.com> Subject: RE: [thelist] Front Page Extensions for Apache Server runninginWin2KEnvironment That is great Ken... It took me a while, but I got Apache to recognize all (approximately 8-10) of the domains that I host on this machine. How do I get IIS to do the same thing. I really do not want to shut the websites down until I am ready to make that happen (knowledge wise).

Uninstall Apache. Install IIS from the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel -> Windows Components. Then visit WindowsUpdate to get any patches you need for IIS. Note that IIS on desktop OSes (Windows NT Workstation, Windows 2000 Pro, Windows XP Pro) have a limit of 10 concurrent HTTP connections. If you need more (to host a production site), you're probably best off getting Windows 2003 Server Web Edition.
