Server2Go is a collection of software compiled to run as a local web server from a CD. The CD’s autorun will start the necessary software on the Windows system and open a browser window with the web page contained on the CD. It uses PHP4, SQLite, MySQL and Apache HTTP Server, among others. The developers recently released version 0.9.8 with the following changes:

Version 0.9.8:

  • Bug fixing: Startup and shutdown of MySQL had some problems
