Is this project still active? There hasn`t been any updates for awhile. Nothing for the last 2 PHP7 branches. Last update was January.

It seems v8.0 is out. Due to the big version jump I did not want to update the entry without testing.

V5.6a

I've been using Uniform Server for a few years now and I really like it. With windows 7 there does seem to be an issue with stopping and starting the services for some reason. You can get around it by uninstalling the services through the right-click option on the tray menu icon but it won't work through the apanel web interface.
Even with that problem I am still too hooked on Uniform Server to even try anything else.

I prefer MoWeS (Modular Webserver System).

You can use MoWeS Mixer to download and choose from a whole list of application packages that will automatically install. Easy does it!

Next to this you can download and install external packages: http://www.mowesforum.chsoftware.net/topic/299/90-new-packages/

Regarding Wiki-on-a-Stick, its possible to setup XAMPP (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1069) portably and much easier:

This is absolutely the best WAMP package I used so far and is also suitable to serve as production server. Also, it is not installed, meaning, your can simply copy the folder containing all your stuff from one computer to another. GREAT!

Another difference is that Xampp is a much larger footprint than Uniserv. The full Universal server is just under 32 mb while Xampplite, their slimmed down version of Xampp, weighs in at 122 mb. Their full install is much bigger than that.

Perfect. I was looking for a portable test environment (for php/mysql mainly), but had some problems with XAMPP and other portable packages... But this, had it up and running immediately and it has just a great interface. I agree with Meter above, and besides the safety, this has just a much better and (user-)friendlier configuration panel than any package I tried before Uniform Server. Highly recommended.

According to their respective web sites, one big difference between Uniform Server and XAMPP is that Uniform Server is set up by default to be safe for use as a production server whereas XAMPP assumes that you will be using it only for testing and will not be putting the server online. XAMPP gives you the ability to secure the setup, but it is not secure by default.

It should be noted that this software is similar to another project called XAMPP.
