Simply the best small server for webdev and it's portable!

I've tested out Wamp and Xamp before. Those are good, but I think the winner is UwAmp. It doesn't take almost any resources from OS and best of all it's portable! I have used it quite much now and really can recommend it for basic server usage with Apache, MySQL, and PHP workflow. Because it's portable you can use it with dropbox or similar cloud drive tool, so you have server and pages always with you...

Best tool for to have environnement PHP simple and fonctionnal

Before I was using Wamp as easyphp was too buggy and disastrous for updates and pass on a higher release.
Wamp was the best environment for a lightweight php development, comprehensive, simple and ready to use.
But since the passage of PHP5.3 to 5.4 and the development of Wamp was completely disastrous. It became very restrictive power switcher a php version to another without encountering problems.

So I decided to go back in UwAmp Server which had made good progress since then, and there is no picture! UwAmp really TOP WampServer and bye bye, hello UwAmp Server! :)
UwAmp not only can be used from a USB stick ideal for demonstrations project portable version! But also installed desktop version.

**UwAmp is already configured for the usual developments such as URL rewriting, sqlite, xDebug, Cachegrind etc ... while under Wamp we always need to set these things.

  • Highly configurable and userfriendly
  • Easy creation of virtual host via the UI interface
  • Easy to enable or disable addons apache, php or mysql
  • Regular updates
  • Easy to install new versions of PHP 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 ... already compiled**

A real treat!
