Uniform Server v5.3 (WAMP Server)

WAMP package that allows you to run a server on any MS Windows OS.


The Uniform Server is a WAMP package that allows you to run a server on any MS Windows OS based computer. It is small and mobile to download or move around and can also be used or setup as a production/live server. Developers also use The Uniform Server to test their applications made with either PHP, MySQL, Perl, or the Apache HTTPd Server.

About The Uniform Server:

The Uniform Server was first developed by Taras Slobodskyy as an application for his clients, but later on, moved to becoming this free and open source project.

Security Briefing:

    Comprehensive Security
    The security of your server is one of our #1 concerns and with that, we tend to set every single default setting as if your server will be used in production. We do not joke with anything serious, and if you believe that a setting is not right for production then you can send us an email or post it in the forum, and we will look into it and see if it can be changed..ht Files
    All default settings for the .ht files, both the .htaccess and the .htpasswd are set as in production use, and to secure your server from outsiders without your permission. We also use a separate folder in the root directory to keep the .htpasswd which is not accessable by outsiders or viewable by them, so that it stays secure.

    Addition Security Measures
    Other security measures we take is that we update our package with every new release of PHP, MySQL, Perl, phpMyAdmin, and the Apache HTTPd Server. Other updated softwares are softwares used as plugins, or included with any package of The Uniform Server.


Most people are concerned with the question if they can run The Uniform Server in production and the answer to that is Yes.
