PAMPA 1.0 - Jaxer included!

Update - Windows Home Fixed!
Version 1.0b contains hot fixes for Window$ Home Edition plus some little change to make PAMPA more robust than before during process managment.
If you already downloaded version 1.0 you can download only the Tray executable and rename it as PAMPA.exe

Please tell me if you have still problems, hoping this b version will be the final 'till 1.1 ;-)

Final Version 1.0 now served via Google Code ;-)

I am proud to announce the first Release Candidate final 1.0 release of my tiny precious PAMPA, jumped from version 0.7 to 1.0 and rewrote from the scratch considering every suggestion its users gave me during these years (project born in 2006 and completely revisited for version 1.0)

What is PAMPA-J

PAMPA means Portable Apache, MySQL, and PHP Application, in this release with Aptana Jaxer included!
(shell I consider PAMPA-J a portable Aptana Cloud?)

What does it mean: Portable

PAMPA is the first customizable and portable WAMP environment that includes Jaxer and that is completely free (but of course donations are always appreciated).
You can launch PAMPA from an USB driver, a CD-ROM (without native database write capabilities), an external Hard Disk, your Hard Disk itself, configuring MySQL data folders, session folders via php.ini, Apache folders, Jaxer folders, and reading logs, changing configuration, in a truly simple way.

Where is it?

For some reason Google Code policy is to ask sourceforge about projects with the same name, so in Google Code I had to change PAMPA project name into PAMPA-J, considering that somebody created an empty PAMPA project in sourceforge 1 year ago, while PAMPA exists at least since February 2006 ... anyway, the link I provided already should not show the RC release yet, while this one, directly from the svn, is the unofficial Release Candidate 1 Direct Download

How does it work?

All you need to do is to choose a folder to decompress PAMPA and then launch PAMPA.exe from that folder, wherever it is.
The result, by default, should be a fully configured Apache, MySQL, PHP, and Jaxer environment for your Window$ 2000/XP/Vista/7 Operating System.
I am working to create a better "splash page" to introduce PAMPA, but right now the Release Candidate shows simply the Document Root with links for some file, Jaxer public folder included ;-)

What's in

  • Apache 2.2.11

  • MySQL 5.1.30-community

  • PHP 5.3.0 alpha 3 (RC1)

  • Jaxer

  • phpMyAdmin 3.1.2

Why all this effort for a Release Candidate?
Because I am looking forward for your feedback, in order to release the first portable WAMP plus Jaxer environment with all you need to develop for your own or for distributions your applications and with all you need (in a reasonable way :D)

PAMPA-J is out, have fun! 8-)
