Awhile ago I mentioned Apache Friends Xampp as a nifty quick and easy way of installing Apache HTTPd Server,MySQL, PHP and Perl on a Windows PC. It still is.

But now there is a new mob offering the same ease of installation called The Uniform Server. It’s a WAMP package that allows you to run a server on just about any MS Windows OS based computer. It is small and mobile to download or move around and can also be used or setup as a production/live server. It’s the perfect system for both beginner webmasters and experienced developers, a fully powered webserver you can take with you on a USB Stick. Hmmm …. this I have to try out. Developers also use The Uniform Server to test their applications made with either PHP, MySQL, Perl, or the Apache HTTPd Server.

For the DIY’ers out there you may prefer to have a look at this site. Install & Configure Apache, PHP, JSP, & MySQL on Windows XP/2000
