Thanks I got the ability to demo sites on cdroms

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the server. :rolleyes:

 

Due to the size of your server and the ability to run on windows without the need for installation I have been able to place your server on a cdrom with my PhP/MySql websites and demonstrate to a person that i'm disigning a site for how the site works, on there own computer.

 

The way I do this is by creating a autorun file on the cd that starts the web server and then the mysql server. It then redirects to a page that explains how to use the site and what to do to shut the servers down, they then click the continue button and it goes to the demo site on the site is a linked button that when clicked stops both servers and brings up a page for comformation and imformation about the demo site also with a thanks to the Uniform Server team and a link to your website.

 

So thanks again for the servers and keep up the good work. :unsure:

Sounds like a plan? :angry:

Were you able to write up this info somewhere? If so, could you point me to the info? - I did a search for "CDROM" in this forum and only found this one thread, and it doesn't have the answer in it.

 

I was able to run UniServer (3.2a) okay from hard disk, but I'm having problems getting it to run from a CD-ROM (mostly due to my unfamiliarity with all the config settings). I changed the Apache log files in httpd.conf to go to Windows temp directory (I think). Now when I run the start.bat I no longer get "Access Denied", but I don't see any other messages or logs, so I don't know where to look for the errors. Obviously I will also need to do something about database updates, but I'm not that far yet, just trying to get Apache itself running via UniServer.

 

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

no, we never got a reply... :( I would do it myself, but i am too busy and plan to do it after we have installers for the plguins ready... I believe it should be relatively easy to do if you know what to do and what needs writing :D

Got it working. I was assuming that Apache would create the Logs directory, but it requires it to pre-exist. :( I added a MD to the startup.bat and it comes up okay now (except that sometimes redirect.html loads before Apache is fully up, but a little wait should solve that). Now I'll figure out MySQL...

 

To summarize what I did for anyone else who wants to know, I changed all references to /log in httpd.conf to be on another drive letter, and in startup.bat I added a subst for that other drive letter to my Windows temp directory, and then did an "MD logs" in there so Apache can write log files.

 

Apache, UniServer and other components are great! No messy installs!

Yeah, we know about the logs... you only have to do the same thing all over for PHP and MySQL. Make sure you do it for PHP or it may cause problems when it is trying to write to the tmp directory or the log directory.

 

MySQL also reads and write to the data directory so you will have to only allow it to read and not write :(

Sorry I toke so long lost operating system due to a hard drive dying

I had to reinstall.

and catch up on 6 months of lost work I had forgotten about this post sorry.

 

But to the point all I done was got the autorun to dump the software in the windows temp directory and run it from there when the demos over it cleans that info from the temp directory. I also put instructions in web format on redirect and used the current scripts to start and stop the server,mysql,etc...
