How To Create A Custom Web Development Environment


If you haven't realized it already, you're going to have to have a dedicated web development environment if you hope to grow into a top-flight coding freelancer. A mandatory practice is to employ a local machine web server to host, view and tweak your site/app creation projects. My tool of choice is Uniform Server - is a lightweight solution under the Windows OS.

At only 24MB, its' design model includes the latest versions of Apache2, Perl5, PHP (with the option to switch between PHP53, PHP54, PHP55 or PHP56!), MySQL5 or MariaDB5, phpMyAdmin or Adminer4. It's been my favorite tool since I discovered it. I also recently stepped up to the plate to become a donor and community forum member to contribute to their future development (so, NO, no affiliate promotional here).

Makes it handy to switch between differing projects with no space overlaps.

Sorry for the lamo poll, but I'm kinda flyin' by the seat of the pants today. PLEASE make your favorite web server known here by reply to this thread. I KNOW there are tons of good ones out there (I started with the ABYSS Web Server a looooonnnng time ago), but it just didn't even occur to me to check for any others (lol!).

@loulou, thank you for voicing your appreciation. If I help just one person everyday, I'm good.
