Uniform server for Linux

Recommended Posts

Which distro are you using, when did you start using Linux and why?

 

Installing Apache, mySQL, PHP and Perl (the main components of Uniform Server) are very easy if you have a distro with a decent package manager. You should be able to use Uniform Server's config files (httpd.conf, my.cnf and php.ini) on Linux, if you can't be bothered to create new ones from scratch.

 

Uniform Server's directory structure is loosely based on that of Linux's, so you won't miss much of that :)

 

Olajide has been pretty busy lately, so if a Linux version were to be made fast, it would probably be made by the community ;)

 

But then, how many people on this forum are using Linux? I know of a few who do, but they're still keeping their Windows PC(s) as they either have more than one PC or are willing to dual boot Linux and Windows. I do know of someone who certainly is "stuck" on Linux, and you sound like one as well.

 

Anyway, you can still run Uniform Server on Linux by emulating a Windows PC with the help of VMWare (commercial) or QEMU (open source) :D

Running Windows on Linux is one way, but if you're only trying to learn Linux, you could also run Linux on Windows as both VMWare and QEMU run on Linux and Windows. Another excellent way of running Linux on Windows is by using coLinux. With coLinux, you're able to run Linux at native speed, unlike what you would get if you used VMWare or QEMU :)

Another option for Linux is XAMPP. It is a binary distribution of Apache, MySQL, PHP, etc that is very easy to install and configure. I use it on an Ubuntu Linux box.

I don't think Olajide would be pleased when he sees that link to XAMPP :(

Maybe I should learn how to code on paper and debug with roaches, so when I'm in Olajide's situation I can just run off to the jungle and continue coding there :(

Why do you have to use 20 distros?

Well, unless you're looking for one you like :D

I'd like to vote for Uniform server for Linux too. My reason being that I travel a lot, so it would be nice to take my projects with me, and use it wherever I am

Hey guys,

 

This post seems to be old but I would like to join those wishing a Uniform Server for Linux.

I abandoned Windows several years ago and I have no intention to use it so far.

But there are pieces of software that are really good like your Uniform Server.

 

Thanks

But obviously you get everything provided by US out-of-the-box on a Linux box, and with a rolling released distro like either Gentoo or Arch, you get automatically upgraded, right ;-)

I agree. XAMPP is huuuugeeee in size. I also look forward to uniform server in linux. (I use ubuntu, puppy linux...)

 

I am writing a book on PHP which is in Bangla Language. I recommended uniserver for practice. :rolleyes:
