Stretched Limo


Recommended Posts

Uniform Server for whatever reason reminded me of a stretched limo thought I would chop it up into three minis!


I have just published three mini servers either is portable or may be run as a service. In reality there are six versions as follows (portable and service):


Apache 2.2.8 - (compressed 569KB uncompressed 1.77MB)

Apache 2.2.2 PHP 5.2.5 (compressed 2.52MB uncompressed 8.12MB)

Apache 2.2.2 Perl 5.10 (compressed 1.08MB uncompressed 3.57MB)


For each server I have included working demo code and or single page web site and a PHP guest book on the PHP server, I personally find it far easier to hack working code.


If you are interested in the above check out UniCenter and no I am not into car sales!


Olajide many thanks for the disk space and bandwidth; I have great admiration for the code that makes these mini servers portable (ripped from Uniform Server 3.5-Apollo). :)


I would be interest in any feedback from new users to find out if these mini servers are useful in anyway. :)


All the best

Ric :)

The mini servers have changed a little, now incorporate auto-drive detection (portable versions) each moved to a unique port. Extended mini-server range to include MySQL series 4 and 5.


Advantage of the above modifications you can now run all mini servers alongside Uniform Server 3.5-Apollo. In addition they are multiple servers, meaning you can run them all at the same time!!


Mini server overview:


Server 1 Portable (451KB/1MB) Apache 2.2.9 Port 8081

Server 2 Service (402KB/821KB) Apache 2.2.9 Port 8082

Server 3 Portable (475KB/1.17MB) Apache 2.2.9 Port 8083 Includes htaccess, authentication and mod-rewrite

Server 4 Portable (1MB/2.89MB) Apache 2.2.9 Port 8084/444 As server 3 with added protection of SSL

Server 5 Portable (1MB/2.87MB) Apache 2.2.9Port 8085 As server 4 SSL Standalone no main server on port 8084

Server 6 Portable (2.02MB/5.87MB) Apache 2.2.9 PHP 5.2.6 Port 8086 Includes Guest Book

Server 7 Service (2.27MB/6.59MB) Apache 2.2.9 PHP 5.2.6 Port 8087 Includes Guest Book

Server 8 Portable (2.47MB/7.93MB) Apache 2.2.9 PHP 5.2.6 Port 8088 Includes GBook, PHP Mini SQL Admin and MySQL support enabled.

Server 9 Portable (953KB/2.54MB) Apache 2.2.9 Perl 5.10 Port 8089

Server 10 Service (904MB/2.36MB) Apache 2.2.9 Perl 5.10 Port 8090

Server 11 Portable (1.85MB/10.2MB) Port 3311 MySQL 5.0.51b Server

Server 12 Service (1.85MB/10.2MB) Port 3312 MySQL 5.0.51b Server

Server 13 Portable (1.46MB/6.38MB) Port 3313 MySQL 4.1.22 Server

Server 14 Service (1.46MB/6.37MB) Port 3314 MySQL 4.1.22 Server


Note: You can use Uniform Server’s built in phpMyAdmin to administer all mini MySQL servers, for details see Wiki. Worthy of note for its encrypted passwords and data is Server 5 making it a very secure personal server. Browsers dislike self-signed certificates this is covered in detail on the Wiki.


Have fun

Hmm, i dont know what i should think about this? Are there people who really use these miniservers?


I have seen projects that also created a bazillion of sub branches but went back to maintaining one main branch because people where confused about the mass.

Hi Ota I apologise just added the final mini-server now I have a bazillion and one.


Each mini-server is intended to demonstrate a particular aspect of Apache and MySQL hopefully in an easy to understand way. I have tried to remove the wood so you can see the trees. Having the ability to run several servers on a single PC allows you to model certain network configurations, mini-server 20 attempts this using real applications on several mini servers.




I have had to re-publish all the portable mini-servers, they now work on Vista.


I would like to express my sincerest gratitude and thanks to DannyH for devoting a great deal of his personal time in testing; in particular locating the bug, which prevented the mini-servers working on Vista Home Premium.


The mini-servers are not isolated entities eventually I will be moving some tutorials over to the Wiki that use them, just takes time. Trouble is I get site-tracked and look at new material and publish that instead.


All the best

Ric :blink:
