Hi all, First time here and just found out about The Uniform Server! Downloaded it, extracted, moved to C:/UniServer and used the start_as_program.exe. When I ran it the very first time it took ages for the MySQL password to be changed Once it was finally done I clicked the Start both button. Immediately the apache server kept crashing and I too was getting the Unable to start Apache server message over and over and over... I then terminated the corresponding exe and decided to reboot my system. After doing that the error appeared again when clicking the button I then decided to re-extract the downloaded archive but this time immediately to C:/UniServer instead of extracting it in my download folder and then moving it over to C:. So this tells me that UniServer is NOT portable! Quite important I recon and this should be mentioned when downloading! PS: Did a fresh install of Win 7 x86 today before trying UniServer for the 1st time. In all honesty not a very good 1st impression. I also have XAMPP installed but wanted to try this one out. Anyway, I'll give this one a try (it works now) but maybe this needs to be fixed or something? Haven't tried installing as service though but don't feel like I need to.
