Ok, great but can you set it sortof "globally" serverwide and not just sitewide? – Chris_45 Nov 19 '09 at 18:51
You can set the default website to respond on any port you want which will respond to any requests not handled by other sites, if that's what you mean. – John T Nov 19 '09 at 19:58
Allright the thing is that I am tinkering with Apache and would like to have Apache listen to port 80 and IIS to 8080. – Chris_45 Nov 20 '09 at 8:51
Apache listens on port 80 by default, just change your site to use 8080 in IIS and you're good to go. – John T Nov 20 '09 at 12:45
