SLAMPPLite is a linux live CD that will turn your personal computer to a simple home server.

What makes it different is that SLAMPPLite has smaller size that will fit into a 256 MB compact disk or usb stick. It contains only essential server applications like Apache, MySQL, ProFTPD, BIND, DHCPD, SSH and mail server.

Several programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python and other tools to support your web development work are also included.

To keep SLAMPPLite slim and make it easy to update the applications, SLAMPPLite uses server suite provided by XAMPP.

SLAMPPLite is compiled intended to be your showcase box. So, when you have something to show to your (potential) users or clients, just put your web applications on SLAMPPLite and you will have an instant mobile portfolio.

Therefore I advise you not to use SLAMPPLite for production purpose, just use the standard SLAMPP instead. Although through some tweaks here and there, SLAMPPLite is also ready for that. Please remember, SLAMPPLite comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. It is provided as AS IS product. Please use it at your own risk.
