Server2Go v1.1.0

What is Server2Go

Server2Go is a Webserver that runs out of box without any installation. That means it is a webserver that can run directly from cdrom, usb stick or from any folder on harddisk. Server2Go allows you to create a standalone working web site or PHP application on a CD-ROM. Server2Go was primary developed for the usage on CD-ROM but there is no problem use it from other drives too. Using a web browser, a user can run php programs as well as view html files on the CD-ROM. He only need to insert a CD with Server2Go under the supported Windows operations systems. The server starts automaticly and opens a browser with the Website of the CD-ROM.
Server2Go was build to replace a tool called WampOnCD that lacks some important features and isn't activly developed.

Server2Go supports PHP5, SQLite and MySQL.


Server2Go is Donationware. That means you can download and use it for free and you don't have to pay any royalty charges when distribute an application on CD-ROM that uses Server2Go. But if you use it commercially or like to keep it free available you should donate to the project. How to donate? Just take a look at the donation page. There are a lot of inexpensive possibilities to help.
Every donator who donates 10.- USD or more is getting a user id and password with that he can download additional software that is not public available. See the download page for details.
