Running IIS and WAMP side by side, but independently (4 posts)

    Currently, we have our site running on Umbraco on a Windows server. I'd like to run a subdomain on the same server, but on WordPress running a WAMP configuration. Is this possible? From what I'm seeing, as long as the two webservers are config'd to use different ports (i'm thinking i'll run WAMP on 8080) that they should be fine.

    I would also be open to running WordPress on IIS as well, but I'm not sure if there's any downside. Do plugins still work the same between different platforms and databases? I'm thinking of some of the security plugins i've seen.

    any thoughts?

    Yes run on 8080 port, it will truely worked for me in past.

    Yes you can acccess your website (Umbraco website) through the local machine. but you have to install and configure in your system(Laptop or Desktop) through the WempServer.

    Here giving step by step guide of [link moderated - please link to resources on wordpress.org].

    Wemp server is giving option to manage your website in PhpMyAdmin.

    seems like you have to do a bit of work to properly handle traffic routing between IIS and Apache using this:

    wordpress forums don't let you link outside of wordpress.org?? kinda kills the whole usefulness of a "forum" don't you think??

    I don't think what your asking actually has anything to do with implementing a reverse proxy.

    Running IIS and WAMP side by side, but independently

    The main issue is that both servers are going to want to serve content from the same ports. If you really intend to pursue installing Apache alongside IIS, you might make that a major focus of your investigation.

    Sure they do. They also reserve the option to moderate the link if it appears spammy, overtly self serving, or might not actually contribute to the topic.

    [edit]

    I would also be open to running WordPress on IIS as well, but I'm not sure if there's any downside

    The most common issue I can think of right off, is the pretty or "almost pretty" permalinks issue.
