What is the Uniform Server?

The Uniform Server is a pre-packed popular web development server stack of Apache, MySQL and PHP (known 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 use and setup.

What software does Uniform Server include?

The Uniform Server is actively developed, and the software included in the package can be changed according to demands of reality. At the moment Uniform Server 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).

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, navigate to http://localhost/a . Now you can change the server settings using The Uniform Server configuration link on the main page or you can also modify "W:\usr\local\apache2\conf\httpd.conf" and "W:\usr\local\php\php.ini" according to your requirements.
