Plugins - Modules

To keep The Uniform Server footprint as small as possible a range of modules (plugins) is provided. These are self-extracting 7z archives. Installing a module requires nothing more than double clicking on the module (plugin) file.

The extraction process creates folders and copies files to appropriate location within the server architecture. Generally plugins are automatically detected and configured. However certain plugins require specific configuration, details are provided in the accompanying documentation with each plugin.

Installing plugins

Installing is a misnomer! Nothing is installed to your PCs registry all files are extracted to their appropriate location within the UniServer folder structure.

The extraction procedure unless stated in a plugins accompanying documentation is identical for all plugins, proceed as follows:

  1. Download the desired plugin – see list below for available plugins.
  2. Save to folder UniServerZ.
  3. If running, stop Uniform Server (Apache and MySQL) from UniController
  4. If running, exit UniController.
  5. Double click on the above installation file saved in UniServerZ folder. This runs the self-extracting archive.
  6. If prompted allow overwriting of existing files.
  7. If you wish; delete the installation file, it is no longer required.

Note: Each plugin contains a read-me file providing any additional instructions this is located in folder UniServerZ.
