MS4W - MapServer 4 Windows
Welcome to MS4W v1.2.2, the MapServer package for Windows. This package is intended
to simplify your life if you are:
- a novice mapserver user who doesn't want to learn how to set up map
server windows just yet ...
- any mapserver user who needs a quick and dirty installation on Windows
- you're giving a workshop and you want 15 identical machines quickly ...
In any of these cases, and probably more, MS4W can help you. However, a few
notes about this package:
- This is not a true installer, it will not modify any file or registry
setting outside of the ms4w directory
- This is not a true installer, it will not install to any location. It
*** MUST *** be installed at the root of one of the drives
on your system
- This is not a true installer, it will only unzip a package to your
harddrive overwriting absolutely everything in its way.
- This is not a secure, stable installation and should *** NOT ***
be used for production servers.
MS4W contains default installations of Apache, PHP, MapServ, MapScript, and
some sample applications. It is structured in such a way as to facilitate
upgrading individual components without messing up the rest of the install.
The base installer package comes pre-configured with the following software:
