  1. Great observation - not eating your own dog food? Security is fairly easy sounds like more of an excuse than anything else. I would bet to say that most of us using UniServer are using it for a small site because Windows is much easier to manage than Linux. It is a great alternative to XAMPP or LAMP is that UniServer has the built-in cache and does not install on Windows. I would consider UniServer.com a fairly small site. To be honest, I was let down with that response. This kinds of reminds me of when I use to review products. I would often find manufacturers who were selling a product which was created for creating lessons, they would almost always use PowerPoint to show off the product. The obvious question is why are you not using your product to demonstrate/educate about the feature and benefits? The answer I got was, the person providing the demonstration is familiar with Powerpoint - ouch! What I get from the response from BobS is that UniServer is primarily for development and not for production - reason is because of security issues. Any flavor of WAMP tells the user there are security issues with everything, you just have to be practical in setting up the environment.
  2. Do this: UniServer is known for not killing Apache. If using Non Services Mode: Click on the task manager and close that 2 Apaches down. They may pop up again, so only proceed when they are no longer up. You can not depend on the Cpanel of UniServer to close or to open Apache. If using in Services Mode: Place a shortcut for Windows services on the desktop. Open that up and what to see if Apache is up. The click on and toggle Stop. I would not use UniServer as a Service as services usually take up lots of resources.
  3. Wordpress 3.1 and Uniserver 7.0 If I select to mod rewrite, it will generate the .htaccess code according to Wordprss specifications - but it breaks the site. Using the "Options +FollowSymLinks" has no impact. .htaccess: ------------------------------------------------------- Options +FollowSymLinks # BEGIN WordPress #Options -Indexes <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /wordpress/ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /wordpress/index.php [L] </IfModule> # END WordPress
  4. Did you ever download the Microsoft companion program? It includes certain drivers. Forgot which program, think it is VB or C+. I have UniServer install on my 2008/64 bit server, works fine.
  5. Coral new features, as you've described, is not encouraging. I will just keep 7.1. The control panel was great, just needed to add a real time LED which showed apache is running.

  7. Would like to see a response on this too.
  8. I would like to add to the list of features, is to be able to see the active path statement without having to go the the Apache config file. This would help in troubleshooting.
  9. Rex, How does an installed browser on Windows have anything to do with UniServer? If you have the Flash plugin, you should be able to play Flash.
  10. I've tried everything, I went to my profile and click on Un-subscribe and in the forum options. The status is Subscribed, where is the un-subscrbed? You can toggle Subscribe/Un-subscibe. Looks like a forum script bug.
  11. Thank you BobS and Coral for your assistance. All is working now. I did not realize you had to set up a master email account for sendmail to work.
  12. Take note that Apache utilizes port 80. This would conflict with Skype. Just a note
  13. Thankyou Coral and Bobs - I am wanting to use the PHP mail (send_mail) protocol and not SMTP. I host several domains.
  14. The upgrade would assume that the Apache config, PhP.ini or any other configs or ini files would be preserved. I would think most would be wanting to preserver setting files. If this is true, how would you upgrade?
  15. On line 1083 I see: ; For Win32 only. http://php.net/sendmail-from sendmail_from = me@localhost.com I un-commented out the last 2 lines. For "me@localhost.com" I replaced it with my own email address going to a domain. Is this correct? I would not think so. I am not receiving mail generated by Contact Us from my CMS. Thank you in advance.
  16. Perhaps running Uniform in XP mode will fix this.
  17. PM me with your skype info. Caps
  18. I think it would be most convenient to be able to see the status which shows if services are Started/Stop. The indicator would be within the task popup.
  19. In system status I see below about port 80 being used by another program, any ideas? ================== UNIFORM SERVER STATUS ================== Your Internet IP Address = Accessible from Internet = NO Cron run status = Not running PHP INI: php.ini file = Production APACHE SERVER: Apache port = 80 Apache SSL port = 443 Apache executable name = Apache.exe Apache service name = ApacheS1 Apache SSL server = Disabled Apache run status = Not running Apache install status = Free to install MySQL SERVER: MySQL port = 3306 MySQL executable name = mysqld-opt.exe MySQL service name = MySQLS1 MySQL run status = Not running MySQL install status = Free to install PORT STATUS: Apache port = 80 In use by another program. Apache SSL port = 443 Is free to use MySQL port = 3306 In use by another program. --------------------------------------------- end
  20. This stuff is Dee Bomb - packaged with Zend Optimizer, this thing moves. I just had it with XAMPP on a Window VPS account and was looking for an Apache/Linux solution and then I found UniServer. I am using CMS ocPortal which has many modules and has many I/O request from the hard drive. It was sitting there waiting, waiting like 4 to 5 or more seconds using Firefox and Chrome. Now this thing is like a fire cracker. This Uniserver will bring back new life to Windows VPS server environments. Read the response from an ocPortal developer when I posted my observation on XAMPP having slow page loads: http://ocportal.com/forum/topicview/misc/d...-relatively.htm This is not the case anymore. Thank you to all of the developers of UniServer.
  21. I am on a remote Windows VSP server: windows_2003_std_sp2. The start.exe will not mount on the system tray. Caps
