Stunnix Advanced Web Server for CD-ROMs

Stunnix Advanced Web Server is a Web server for putting Web sites onto CD-ROMs, DVDs, FlashDisks, and other readonly media to be used on any typical system. Sites can be scripted with PHP, Python, Java, or Perl and can be driven by MySQL or SQLite databases. All required software programs are designed to reside on the CD-ROM to avoid the need to install software on the user's computer. The Web serving core is based on Apache 1.3.x, and has additional functionality to detect and use free ports and automatically start a browser on each platform. Desktop applications can also be created with it.
