You can run PHP on IIS, numerous guides exist on this topic. On the other side of the fence, if your using a Linux system with Apache you can use Mono and XSP to provide near complete ASP.Net 2.0 support.

Thank you. actually we are planning to use Linux based web server. what i understand from you is that after preparing the server with Apache and PHP then i go with configuring MONO and XSP to enable websites to be hosted successfully as well on the same server? – bogha Nov 13 '09 at 10:28
Apache can handle ASP.NET via Mono the same way it can handle PHP. You just install the corresponding modules and configure those for your needs. This will only require one HTTP server that forwards all requests either to PHP or Mono and delivers the result. – OliverS Nov 13 '09 at 10:41
Ahh, it has been a while since I tried Apache/Mono. Good to know its now available as a module and not just a fcgi service. – Andrew Williams Nov 13 '09 at 11:00
does it fully support is it stable at production time? – bogha Nov 13 '09 at 21:28

Yes, IIS can support running numerous simultaneous frameworks. .NET/ASP/PHP/SSI/ISAPI etc..

You just have to enable them.
