Hello!

I'm new here and I started to use Uniform Server since today (I'm totally newbie! xD). Exploring wiki and forums, I've been able to run and test my server, and also start to test my own web. It's the first time I get results so quickly following a web tutorial, I'm very proud of myself xD but I also have to thank you for this site, it's very good organized and very clear to start from the very beginning.

Just I find strange that folders structure in the wiki is not the same in my server (for example: the wiki folder "*\Uniform Server\udrive\www" is my "*\Uniform Server UPX\diskw\www"), I'd been quite messed with that for a while. ¿Maybe there are other wiki pages referring to this folder structure? I don't know if I'm looking in the wrong page :S

Thank you!

Best regards.

Blast from the past
Folder “Uniform Server UPX” shows you are running version 3.3
I would recommend you use 5.5 see the following Wiki pages for details.

Thanks for the info, but at first running v5.5 I've seen a problem v3.3 doesn't have:

I know I have just to change location and continue testing but, from the beginning, I don't like that kind of restrictions (specially if I already have a version that doesn't have them). I'm making a web for a friend who doesn't have any idea of how it works computers world in general xD, so I want to make things as easy as possible in order to send the web and execute it with the less steps as possible.

However an older version explains perfectly the difference between folders structure so now I know I just have to take care while following wiki instructions. I'm not making a huge web, so I don't think I'll have problems if I don't upgrade just for local web tests. I'll have this in mind anyway.

So thanks for the info anyway, it's always useful.

Best regards.

Your image shows that you're putting this into "My Documents" (or its actual location), which is really not a good choice for a server program. The best choice is to put it directly on the root, C:\.

"I know I have just to change location and continue testing but, from the beginning, I don't like that kind of restrictions (specially if I already have a version that doesn't have them).

Been there, done that. I assume that want you want to do is to just upload via FTP directly from the www directory. If it requires parts from the database, you'll have to provide a procedure for that, too. :)
I found that the more changes I made base on assuming my client was "too dumb," the more my support problems increased. The best solution was to install as straightforward as possible, which translates to "easy."

Buena suerte,
Bob
