For those who never heard about it, Server2Go is an HTTP server that runs on any Windows based computer out of the box without any installation, also on write protected media. This means that web applications based on Server2Go can be used directly from a CD/DVD, a USB stick or directly from any folder on a hard disk without the hassle of configuring Apache, PHP or MySQL.
Server2Go allows you to create a standalone working web sites and PHP applications on a CD or DVD. There are hundreds of possible implementations:
- catalogs, even using adobe flash
- calculation programs
- image campaigns
- CMS-based presentations
- computer based training lessons
- statistical and business intelligence presentations.
Most PHP-Software such as the content management system Joomla or the computer based training software Moodle can be used from read-only media with the help of Server2Go.
Server2Go was developed in the first instance for use on CD-ROM but there is no problem in using 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. You only need to insert a CD with Server2Go. The server software starts automatically and a browser is opened with the web site burnt on the CD.
Another interesting feature is the support of encryption for your scripts. When you want to distribute a web-based software on CD or DVD, but you don’t want to show your source code, you can make use of PHP encoders together with Server2Go. It currently supports:
Let’s hope that the upcoming releases happen a bit more often, since this piece of software is a must for info distributi0n.
