AppServIf you have been familiar with Apache Server and MySQL Database Server, then you will know about AppServ server. AppServ server. is a server package that compose of : Apache, PHP, MySQL, and phpMyAdmin. It’s a kind of light server that have ability to setup in Windows flatform, but AppServ is recommended to run in Linux.
The objective of this package is EASY to Install Apache, PHP, MySQL, AppServe promote : You can setup web server, and database server in 1 minute. If your needed is Easy Installing and you don’t want to make any configuration, AppServe id suitable for you.

AppServ 2.6.0 consist of :

· PHP 6.0.0-dev
· MySQL 6.0.4-alpha
· phpMyAdmin-2.10.3

Apache, PHP and MySQL in this AppServe looks new, but phpMyAdmin-2.10.3 is not so. There is recommendation from AppServe about version : We recommend for all AppServ user. You do not upgrade to new version every time when released. You should to select some version for your work if you think this version stable for you. New version is not mean good.
Actually if you like a light server; you may install Apache, PHP and MySQL only, then about managing the database you may install MySQL Administrator separately. But this is not an objective of AppServe that concern to easy install and configuration. AppServ have only special configuration when install, Apache configure httpd.conf, MySQL configure my.ini, PHP configure php.ini.But AppServ can guaranty any package from AppServ can work stable like Official of Apache, PHP, MySQL Release.

MySQL Administrator can manage the MySQL database and the front was made look like database manager regularly; its look like database GUI almost looklike similar as SQL Server in Windows. The other way phpMyAdmin had some advantage; i.e you may setting up to be able to access by browser completely.
