Uniform Server 8.9.1
Test web pages and PHP with your own portable web server

Uniform Server is a bundle which includes Apache2, MySQL5, Perl5, PHP5, phpMyAdmin and more, and makes it easy to run a web server - either development or live - from just about any Windows PC.

The program is a surprisingly compact download at 15MB. It's a self-extracting archive, too, so all you have to do is run it, specify a folder and everything will be unpacked there.

Check the UniServer folder and you'll find three further executables: "help.exe", "Start_as_program.exe" and "Start_as_service.exe". Again, it's fairly obvious what you should do, but running "help.exe" provides more details, if you're interested. Otherwise just launch "Start_as_program.exe" to take a look at how everything works.

Uniform Server doesn't require any complex installation, so you're not left on your own trying to figure out some MySQL issue, for instance. Simple alerts explain what you need to know about a few key issues, and within a few seconds you'll be looking at the main Uniform Server console. You can start Apache with a click, and immediately you'll be able to try out PHP or HTML pages just by copying them to your UniServer\www folder.

This isn't just for development, though - you can use Uniform Server to run a live web server, host your own websites and make them available online. This does require a lot more thought and configuration time, but again the package does a good job of helping you through the setup process.

Verdict:

A lightweight web server, very easy to set up (even for beginners) and move around

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
