They can both be configured to use Port 80, but you will only be able to have one of them running at a time. You needs to be careful about whether to auto start one of them and make certain it is stopped before firing up the other Server.Another solution is to alter Apache or IIS to listen/use Port 81 instead of the typical Port number 80.A downside to changing the Port number is that the Port would need to be identified in the URL .ie: http:// localhost:81 becomes the address of your localhostSitepoint has a decent article here: https://www.sitepoint.com/run-apache-iis-same-pc-2/ that also outlines how to use batch files to start/stop the Servers.
