You're planning to run both Apache and IIS? Which one will have port 80? – Chris_K Jun 23 '10 at 1:22
Nothing wrong with running both - you can have Apache on port 80 doing reverse-proxy to IIS on port 8080 (or anything else.) And of course you only make 80 open to the world, and 8080 can only be contacted by localhost. – mfinni Jun 23 '10 at 2:02
Don't believe I indicated there was anything wrong with it. But it would sure help to know what is planned before offering a detailed answer. – Chris_K Jun 23 '10 at 2:29

For the PHP / MySQL bits check out Microsoft's Web Platform Installer. The installer also handles most of the popular PHP apps as well.
