And r3m1ck.us will share about some FTP Clients and Web Servers application portable for web designers and developers.
FTP Clients Portable Applications
- FileZilla Portable
FileZilla is the most popular open source FTP client. With the portable version, you can save your clients’ server details and settings with you. Although you can use Firefox portable and install the FTP extension, but using a standalone FTP application is more encouraged as it provides more features and more options to be configured.
- WinSCP Portable
WinSCP is an open source free SFTP client and FTP client for Windows. It integrates a text editor. I seldom uses this application unless when i need to use SFTP or SCP protocols. So, i will recommend FileZilla for normal FTP uses.
Web Servers Portable Application
- XAMPP Portable
XAMPP integrates Apache, MySQL, PHP and Perl into one package. Everything is pre-configured and you can run your own web server without any configurations. You can download the normal version or the lite version.
Server2Go is a free server package that includes standard features such as PHP, MySQL, Apache and Perl.
- HTTP File Server
HTTP File Server is a very simple application to send/receive files over internet. It is a handy application when your client want to send a file to you but the file size is over the maximum allowed size by the email provider. So, i am always carrying this application with my USB drive.
