What is the Uniform Server?

The Uniform Server is a pre-packaged popular web development server stack of Apache, MySQL and PHP (referred to as a WAMP). It is used primarily for testing HTML code privately on your Windows-based computer. It is a small package, very easy to setup and use.

What software does Uniform Server include?

The Uniform Server is actively developed, and the software included in the package includes Apache, PHP, MySQL, PhpMyAdmin, and several plugins.

How do I install the Uniform Server?

After downloading the latest version, run the downloaded .exe file to unpack the server directory. Then go to the created directory and run Start.exe (or start.bat for earlier versions). Note that nothing is entered in the Windows registry, and that you can move the entire directory structure after unpacking.

Versions 5.0 and later automatically open a browser and redirect you to the Welcome screen (http://localhost). You can then click the Server Administration link under the banner to change the settings.

Earlier versions create a new disk "W:\" which is The Uniform Server's base. If the browser does not open up automatically, navigating to http://localhost/a will display the administration panel. This panel lets you change the server settings using The Uniform Server configuration links, or you can also modify "W:\usr\local\apache2\conf\httpd.conf" and "W:\usr\local\php\php.ini" according to your requirements.
