How can I run 2 servers on One port? – Muhammad Imran Tariq May 14 '11 at 13:51
Maybe if you expanded your question to include what version of anything you're running, as well as what you've done so far, you may get someone to help you, instead of immediate closure. – Holocryptic May 14 '11 at 13:52
So where does IIS come into this? Is that already installed? I can only assume WAMP wouldn't use port 80 because IIS was already using it. In that case, there are plenty of guides around showing you how to load the PHP module into IIS. – Ben Pilbrow May 14 '11 at 14:06
yes IIS already installed. – Muhammad Imran Tariq May 14 '11 at 14:13

Use Web Platform installer - find WordPress and it will install all necessary prerequisites including php ISAPI extension for IIS and MySQL. Installation wizard will guide you. You must have host header assigned to your Web site and install WordPress to blog web application on your web site.

Btw. questions about configuring IIS belong to and questions about configuring wordpress belong to

Thanks @Ladislav Mrnka – Muhammad Imran Tariq May 14 '11 at 13:49

Installing WAMP is not necessary since you already have IIS installed. IIS is already listening on port 80, so the sensible thing to do would be to load the PHP DLL into IIS and run your blog on IIS.

As for loading PHP into IIS, the download contains a file called install.txt which goes through how to install PHP (failing that, there's no end of guides on the internet). If you're not particularly comfortable with that, the PHP download page offers an MSI installer as well.

Upload wordpress files to a directory called /blog/ in your web root.
