Hello,

Can I run XAMPP Portable Lite alongside IIS on SBS 2003 if i change the ports Apache listens on to 81 and 442 instead of 80 and 443?

This is what I want to install.

Is it going to break the server?

Regards,
Robbie.

Nope if you configure apache in php.ini you can run iis and apache together. Just you need to change your localhost to localhost:81

Why would I be configuring Apache in php.ini?
Is it not changed in httpd.conf?

If this is a local install for testing then fine but browsers only listen on 443 for a secure channel (unless you add a port number to the url). If this is for a public server then you cannot use a different ssl port

It is possible but wouldn't be something that I would recommend. You don't really want any more ports open to your SBS than you already have.  Its more of a security risk.

Also, there will be a little more load on the server.  

You would be better off installing it on an old XP machine or something to keep it separate.
