YASB – Yet Another Symfony Blog

Tired of setting up your presentation/testing environment?

Yeah, I’ve been away a while, had no time to update this blog, but still have been active on freenode’s #symfony channel.

Just a quick tip for anyone interested or looking for a better solution than XAMP – it’s called The Uniform Server. It unzips into a convenient folder anywhere on your computer and sits there until invoked. It’s portable (USB key server, anyone?), self-contained and can be secured and managed via the control panel after you get the server up and running.

It took me just 10 seconds to unzip and start the server (including opening the command prompt and typing Start_server.bat). That’s the fastest Apache/PHP5/MySQL setup I’ve ever done. Maybe not very newbie friendly, but for anyone used to working with LAMP, it should be a breeze.
