markettwp Posted November 20, 2006 Report Share Posted November 20, 2006 I've installed UniServer on my USB flash drive and it works fine, however... I have a situation where I needed to do a demo on a public library network.This fails because the network has restricted the use of batch (.bat) and command (.com)files for security reasons. This is a serious problem since the UniServer uses batchfiles to start services, etc. I am currenly using a workaround (sorry about this...) using the 'other' WAMP serverwhose name begins with "X....". It works in the above situation because it provides and executable (.exe) file for control and configuration. Please note that this workaroundis less than satisfactory for several reason, not the least of which is the huge footprintof the "X...." server on my USB drive (hundreds of Megs). "X...." is a beast. My suggestion (request, plea, cry for help?) is that the development team at Uniservermake an executable control program to start and administrate the various services. Please note that this should not replace the use of batch files (I prefer this current methodof UniServer access and control). but this would address the problem I have outlinedabove: demo's on "secure" systems where the user rights and restrictions cannot be controlled by we, the programmers. Quote UniformServer 5.x, CodeIgniter, Gimp. What else could anyone want? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
