Even do to a lack of responses! I seriously do not believe 5-Nano code is that stable! :o

Hence I published this:


Beta testing is all about finding issues and unexpected combinations of hardware and software. For example add more back-end servers and push US to its limit! Hey! Come to that how many instances of US can you run on a laptop? I have reached five :)


I do not understand the reluctance to give US a good bashing! Neither, the exe or zip installs anything on your PC. To get rid of the annoyance just delete the file you extracted Uniform Server to. :P


I have been asked why so many betas! That flawed me, like do you not want to change it. Which part of it’s your server do you not understand? :)


Well beta 3 is the last attempt to prove the control architecture is a sane way to go. Not a real issue it can be regressed. :(


The above is a serious rant, I was looking at some additional enhancements but because the core is not proven they are no longer worth looking at. :)


I have become despondent; if there is one response I will not publish this. :o


Well I rest my case; Bob Marley said never give up. Ace he also said get together and feel aright.


Knocking on doors and waiting in vein! Yep another Bob Marley song that expresses my point, a great artist good at reactions.


All the best

This public beta is all about testing the new control architecture.

Just answered a post where I discovered the concept failed.

Intention was to use vanilla PHP no fancy oop’s or version specific code.

Well __DIR__ nailed that one.


I tend to write most of my verbiage in real time, one UniServer running a Wiki where I write while testing other instances and various aspects of these servers. Generally I have three beta servers running.


A friend who is a professional softy could not handle this concept from a hardy. Well if it’s designed you must have confidence in the product, hence run it in real time, if it breaks, you shoot yourself in the foot! That’s a real incentive to get it right.


Yep! While writing some martial about cURL, discovered certificate and key generation was a little flaky. Seems the code is dogmatic about, just creating default certificates, shame that. Not a serious issue, personal server still uses encryption these self-signed certificates remain unique, just that you cannot use your real domain. Want a real certificate! Well you cannot use the signing request with these betas.


The above issues will be corrected in the next beta release or final release.


All the best

Well it seems beta testers are thin on the ground.

Perhaps they follow my philosophy don’t knock it until you have tried it. :)

Then again there are a few exceptions! I like cheese but :)



Well US beta is not that extreme. :)

Al the best

Ric :o

Well Ace! No real problems with 5-Nano Beta 3


Thought any issues would be placed here.


I will be out of town until the end of September hence will not be able to answerer any problems before then. Hey, it's end of summer time and schools are back. That means I have no problems with holiday traffic.


Catch you latter

All the best

Ric :)
