Apache Setup on Windows

I've installed Apache 1.3.31 for Windows on Win2k3 and it appears to run ok as a service, and IIS has not been started. If I enter the server's local network address I get an 'Under construction' page with instructions on how to start IIS. Apache has been installed in it's default location.

Which folder should contain the www files, and how do I get IE6 to recognise that Apache is the webserver and not IIS?

If you are not planning to use IIS, why not remove it and avoid potential conflicts?

Oops, just remembered your other question: 'Apache and IIS on same server' - www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Servers/Q_21180526.html.

So, the answer is the same as there: "The two servers cannot listen to the same port on the same IP, so you can configure them to use different ports as KerryG suggested or you can use two IP addresses and bind IIS to one and Apache to the other."

See the other post for 'how-to' details.

Yes, I thought I'd deleted this question and replaced it with the one you reference.
