ASCOOS Web Server 1.6.3.685
An Apache/ MySQL/ PHP bundle for web developers

ASCOOS Web Server is a suite of tools and applications aimed at web developers.

Unzipping the ASCOOS download file gets you the following.

NGINX Web Server; Apache Web Server; OpenSSL; Filezilla FTP Server; three PHP Versions; Perl; three MySQL Database versions; PostgreSQL Database; MongoDB Database; Multiple SQLite Versions; phpMyAdmin; phpPgAdmin; rockMongo; phpMemcachedAdmin, eXtplorer and more.

There's no further installation required. As long as the AlexServ folder is in your root directory, then you can run \AlexServe\aws\aws.exe, start MySQL, Apache and whatever else you need, and begin managing your files.

This isn't particularly unusual, but ASCOOS Web Server stands out because it bundles and allows you to test your sites with different version of PHP and MySQL. As we write, for example, ASCOOS provides PHP 5.2.17, 5.3.28 and 5.4.26, and you're able to choose your preferred active version (or switch to another) with a click.

Version 1.6.2:
 0 Updated NGINX Web Server to 1.5.12, PHP to 5.4.27, MySQL to 5.5.37, MySQL to 5.6.17, PostgreSQL to 9.1.13, MongoDB Database to 2.4.10, rockMongo (MongoDB Manager) to 1.1.5, SQLite Database Binaries to 3.8.4.3, Phalcon PHP Extension (For PHP 5.3 & 5.4) to 1.2.6, php browscap.ini to 5026 (2014-03-27)

Verdict:

The ASCOOS Control Panel is a little clunky, and the basic, YouTube-only documentation isn't ideal, either. It only takes a few moments to master, though, and ASCOOS Web Server's support for multiple PHP and MySQL versions is a real plus.

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.
