Google Wave looks set to be rescued by Apache

The Apache Software Foundation, that is, not an ominously portentous, Wagner-blaring helicopter. The beleaguered Wave project, which Google has ceased developing, will soon shut down. Last week, Google gave us the ability to export our existing waves as Zip files, and now, thanks to Apache and the Wave in a Box off-shoot, you may soon have somewhere to import them to. It won't be exactly the...

Flipping the Linux switch: Linux web tools, Pt. 2 - Using LAMP for testing

There was a toss up this week about whether it would be better to dig right in to the Linux HTML editors, or to wax poetic about setting up LAMP so that those choosing to go the content management system (CMS) route could test any changes they made with such editors on their local machines. We ultimately decided to tackle setting up a LAMP testing ground. This will certainly not be necessary for...

Unofficial Windows Mobile 6 upgrade for PPC-6700/XV6700

Lest you should think Dell Axim users are having all the fun, an industrious hacker has crammed Windows Mobile 6 onto yet another device. If you're using a Sprint PPC-6700 or Verizon XV6700 (which are basically the same device), and don't mind voiding your warranty and possibly killing your machine, have we got news for you! PPCGeeks forum member helmi_c has managed to get Windows Mobile 6...

WAMP5 and EasyPHP, both great local web server options

EasyPHP is a great little web server package, as you might expect, it has the usual LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) stack, with phpMyAdmin, and a few other things. The only issue you might have with the EasyPHP 1.8 release is that it uses PHP 4. This may not be a problem unless you really need some of those sweet new features from PHP5. No word yet on when the folks at EasyPHP will be...

IIS vs Apache, in pictures

There are very few software products that I abhor. It's a short list, they know who they are, and it hasn't changed in years. At the top? Internet Information Server (IIS), Microsoft's poorly conceived and even more poorly executed web server platform. I don't understand what makes someone choose Microsoft's IIS over the open source Apache and, after seeing this, I don't think I ever will. ...

Want a portal? Just add Geeklog

There's no shortage of CMS or "portal" building tools out there. Drupal is one I've come to trust and its feature set is hard to beat. But many require a certain amount of heavy lifting or at least tweaking to get running. Enter Geeklog-- a so-called "portal in a box," or to hear them say it, "The Ultimate Weblog System." I don't know about ultimate, but I will say the installation and...

XAMPP, the new LAMP hotness

XAMPP is an easy to install web server distribution containing Apache, MySQL, PHP and Perl. It claims to be a snap to use and install. After I got through clicking like 20 times to find the actual file download link on the XAMPP site (hosted at sourceforge), which irritated me a bit, the process got a bit better. You can download three different versions of the file, the installer (32MB), the zip...

Xitami provides an alternative to Apache

Everyone needs a web server right? Sure they do, at least in my mind. Anyone writing and developing anything for the web at least. Apache is usually the web-server of choice. It is powerful, flexible, free and fairly easy to use. An alternative to Apache is the (also free) Xitami web server. It is more light weight than Apache but is also quite easy to use and configure. Xitami has a nice GUI to...

Automatically generate .htaccess files

If you're asking, "WTF is .htaccess," this might not be the post for you, but I'll tell you anyway: .htaccess are little configuration files for the Apache web server that let you apply simple or very complex rules to the way requests are handled. Now, I know people who can write .htaccess files blindfolded, but for me it's always a big headache. Enter .htaccess Generator, that does what it sounds...
