== Portability ==
If you want a portable version of MediaWiki , copy the folder '''UniServer''' and all its content to your USB memory stick that’s it. Don’t expect fantastic speeds however , but it is usable.
Uniform Server uses the standard ports (Apache port 80 and MySQL port 3306). If a host PC is currently running another server on these ports it will prevent UniServer from running. To resolve this situation, either stop the host servers or preferably install your UniServer on different ports by moving the servers, as described next.
