The Uniform Server

Writing about web page

I found The Uniform Server a while ago but only decided to try it out today and realised how useful it is. It allows you to run Apache & MySQL (inc PHP and Perl) on Windows without having to install them first. You can even run them from a USB flash drive.

It's so useful that I've now removed my old Apache & MySQL services and instead set up one of these for each of the web sites I am working on. That way I just run the server for the site I'm working on and I don't have to worry about virtual hosts or what settings will affect what sites. It also has the advantage that when I'm finished with a project I can just drag it to my Archive folder, and if I want to come back to it later I don't have to set up the web server and databases all over again, just run start.bat and it's ready to use again! - 11th
