Capable of hosting a fully-featured professional site, on the cheapest tabs I can't explain how much I love this program. It's highly reliable, and has given purpose to my old Chinese tablet. The webserver runs seamlessly on the dual-core tab, achieving upload and download speeds of roughly 5mb/s when accessed from another computer. I use this webserver to host a simple cloud streaming platform, and it works perfectly. This server has continued to run seamlessly even when the device locks up, which is amazing. I was able to install Codiad to modify server code externally, rather than using FTP. The setup is really easy, and once you're ready you can fine tune the server to your own preferences. The device doesn't heat up during operation as long as you're not having a high server load - which this application can handle (I tested using LoadImpact). My website running through this app currently scores B in Google PageSpeed and A in YSlow, which is on par with big organisations.

Arafat Zahan

Best server pack for Android. Best web server stack for your phone. Works brilliantly. It's full featured, no demo/trial crap. I strongly recommend this software.

Austin Kregel

For some reason after installing everything and it being successful. I try to start a server and it says it can't find the servers. Wtf.

Oscar Ollotu

Arjun R Sekhar

Thank you For giving it free .very good app working very well on my device

saul smith

Good app Good to write some code on the go, you can start a "server party" with your smartphone. Mysql version is outdated but it is great to write some code, very easy to use, good options to set up your servers.

เสริฐ ดินสอ

Very Good PRO: Best for html 5 video for IOS. Use small memory. The html5 video control timing slide bar work great, very flexible. Can config the lighttpd config file directly.

Herman Lenana

Not Accessible online Installs well but doesn't serve anything. Default address is inaccessible from another device.

Nazmi Kaoru

Good job on the updates The root permission fixes are great, now its available to start using port 80. Really wish we could have apache too in this as an alternative for lighttpd

Rizky Tahier

Web Server Error Response Error. Technical description: 502 Bad Gateway - Response Error, a bad response was received from another proxy server or the destination origin server.

Erwin John T. Carpio

can't install phpMyAdmin keeps giving me a java error code or connection reset by peer. pls help.

Human Being

Very nice but An internal iptables port redirection feature would be nice so we can run on port 80. I ran it in root mode (with su permission) but clients were still denied a connection. The good thing is it's free and works very well.

Agung Sukma

This is the best ALMP: Android Lighttpd MySQL PHP Database login isn't working at first, looks that it needs password, so I reset the password and restart the server then it works fine (just a few clicks on menu, it's easy). Please add support to move mysql data dir to sdcard then it will be 6 star..

susilo nurcahyo

Tomo Hadi Sutomo

Very Good App! I had try my php code and mySQL database and run them smoothly! Ususaly I create and test my code on my Dell Laptop, but I can't do that on my travel, now I can write my code everywhere instead on traveling. And my Laptop of course for coding at my office and my home. But when i'm traveling this is THE BEST CHOICE. Very good application. I recommended it for user who search a good php-mysq sever on android.

Victor Duapadang

Hafsal M Mohamed

nice app! works in ARM but not in x86

Dave Torr

Excellent app Used ksweb for a while but when I got Lollipop release on my Nexus 7 it stopped working just before I really needed it. So I installed this and worked first time. Will need more tests but so far looks really good

aurora vii

nice good app, plus it's free. but mod_rewrite didn't seem to work. I tested using symfony it needs app.php in address path. anyway, keep up the good work!

R Dec

Nice But battery info is unknown in webadmin:(

No Name

How to use php CLI? E.g. $php composer.phar -update ?

Mihail Gershkovich

Almost perfect! A built-in mini ftp server would be nice. Minimalistic mail server too

Tonzure Koite

MySQL not work on x86, but not really need it, main question is there a way to remove banners? donation or something?

Дмитрий Кравцов

Add please python All is nice but very need python server. ty for you project. Sorry for my bad english )

Hobby Clan

Amazing compact fully working web server This is the best app that I have ever seen. Lighttp mysql php everything working. For Phpmyadmin, you have to download from website and extract to your phone SD card wps/phpmyadmin folder. Edit config.Inc.php. After that it's fully working web server. I installed wordpress and no issue. I'm running on S3 with cyanogenmod 4.4.4. You can use FTP Server by the olive tree (google play store) to upload contents from laptops or other phones.

Half Dragon

Fully wasted Useless app

Paul Richardson

An EZ-Button for On-Android Dev! This is the best of approx. (to the best I can recall) four diff. Web servers I've tested on CyanogenMod. With both GUI admin tools for mySQL/php/LightTpd and legacy text-based config directives (if you really need them), this provides an excellent dev test/toy-box for on-the-go hacking and tinkering. AT&T (in Louisville, KY. USA) does not yet block incoming TCP/IP packets, so its not restricted to LAN use right now, on my cell (D850, LTE).

Nanang Qachim

Phpmyadmin not work I'm can't login to the phpmyadmin

Kalen Twedt

Does not work Even after downloading server packages I get the error saying No server packages found!

ali chichkova

No SQL available The php server seems to work.. However, I must stress not to bother to d/l this app. There is no phpmyadmin. And even after installing phpmyadmin myself into the root directory, the SQL passwords don't work. There is no earthly way to talk to the SQL DB. Even with 3rd party SQL clients. With no SQL, this app is a lame duck. The website lists this as a constant problem, but has not been addressed by the developer. Very lame indeed.

Amiel Summers

Sweet. Very good. Everything works, including mysql, and php. Can modify config files; change port numbers...Oh, and I use it (web) to move files to desktop on occasion. It's as much of a webserver as I could ask for. Except I could use php extensions for Postgresql.... For mysql -u root -p. Ported site from postgres to phone (MySQL) works great. No real performance issues, tempted to leave it running all day to see what breaks...! On S5.

Hafiz Sulistio Utomo

It doesnt work for my samsung galaxy s6 edge It said unknown architecture processor, fix it and i will give stars !

rigor cadiz

Minor bug I hope you can update the MySQL version of this, and i guess there is a bug if using root. It shows 'Application is still busy." i reboot it and still doing the same. Is it possible that you can add 'rewrite module' for htaccess in CodeIgniter?

Robert Diamond

great app Running great on nexus 5, android 4.4. Only having trouble installing phpmyadmin. Not sure if it's my network connection, or if it's outdated link. Going to test it when I get home, on a more stable network connection. Anywho, serving up my forum software, great test platform for web devs ;)

eric brewer

Update your phpmyadmin People complaining about the missing phpmyadmin should just download and extract to sdcard/pws/phpmyadmin/. Everything else looks good. The version this app tries to install ( was an interim development version, no longer on the resource pages. So the installer in this package will fail. However later phomyadmin versions also dont work. The long term support of works an android with the bundled php version in this web server tool. Nicely done!

Caleb Thompson

Please update to include Note 5 Does not work on Note 5! Please fix and will give better rating!

Dan F

Kinda works Works exactly as described, however, you have to leave the app open or Android will kill the service within minutes. Needs a status display in notification bar to keep Android from killing it.

Emma kezzy

Wow It's what it says. This app has really help my Web development skill. Wouldn't get to where i am today without this app i guess.

prasanthvel velmurugan

Nice Application As I'm IT student its helps to reduce my work load and timings to work with my web server projects. Now I don't need to carry my laptop with me wherever i go.. very nice app, but the Database not working fine with WordPress plugin.. Can i use this app to connect my server to work over internet? Let me know. Thanks

Lee Summerall

Excellent app- confirmed working on CoolPad Arise, and nVidia Shield. Not working on Moto E, G, and X though. Wish I could use it on the E or G though.

Angela Adelia

Error I like the app but i can't install the phpMyAdmin so i can't use it , please fix it and i will give 5 stars

nafis tuts

How kind are you. It's working and free. Now I can develop Wordpress from my Smartphone. Many thanks indeed.

Fauzan Azimah

Tamal Kundu

Getting error while downloading the PHPMyMdmin Please tell me the resolution for it.. I badly need it.. Otherwise it's good...

Jim R

Phpmyadmin can't download Can someone tell me why can't download the phpmyadmin? Pressed the button for install, but fail

Peter Aarnoutse

Webserver at port 80 doesn't work at Lollipop Running a webserver at a port > 1024 (eg. 8080) works OK, but when configuring a webserver to listen at port 80 (requires your Android is rooted, and option 'Use root access' enabled in Palapa) then the server just crashes if running at Lollipop. Palapa uninstalled, as being useless for my goal: A webserver @ port 80 that runs OK on a (rooted) Lollipop. Who knows a WORKING alternate? (even the app "Servers Ultimate" fails at Lollipop when used for this purpose).

Jithin Dani Thomas

does not work on my device moto g 2nd gen

Christian Innocent

AREA FATHER It's a great application. I like it, it is almost what I needed. But it's force closing.

Krzysztof Szeremeta

Good Server, but not working with ulefone be touch 2 Not working with ulefone be touch 2. Please add options SSH tunnel. It's important to me. I use to create a tunnel from JuiceSSH.

Luki Rompis

Can't stop services The apps works well..except the 'start all services' button in the home menu doesn't change when I pushed it.. So I can't stop the services

S Blijheid

Could be updated with config file Whenever I type localhost, I get an not found error even by typing But when I type, my local site comes up. I have no idea where the config file is pointing to but it would be nice if the developer made it available. For now I'll just use a bookmark so I don't have to waste my time typing a lot of characters.

Terrance Tam

It was good until android marshmallow Src/network.c.409 can't bind to port 8080 address already in used.

João Cacheiro

Unknown processor architecture Does not let me install, it returns the error 'Unknown processor architecture'. (Device: Xiaomi Redmi Note 3) (CPU: Mediatek Helios X10)

Christian Læirbag

Wanted to donate for the really usefull tool that you've created and worth it. However, "Error donating: IabResult: user cancelled (response: -1005:User cancelled)" appears every time I press donate button and that's an error. so please don't say "If you don't like it, then don't use it", when I have will, balance and satisfaction enough to reward you, but you make it not possible.

Vei Zeix

External SD card hi! very nice app. how do I change the default web folder (htdocs) to my external sd? what is the path?

Steven Myers

Failed phpMyAdmin mirror Love the app, easy to use, but the mirror from sourceforge isn't working.

Pagla Protik

Doesn't Work On Marshmallow It Seems That Another Server Running, but There Are No Server

Shreyas Rao

Doesn't work for my Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Unknown architecture processor!! Please fix it..

Nicolò Durisotto

Great app Tested only PHP server, it works well, but the app recognise it as stopped even if started and working. From the web panel all looks OK. I miss only two features: Virtual Hosts and the possibility to select PHP version. Galaxy S4 (gt-i9515) with CyanogenMod 13

Anthony Mkpang

Incredible App I appreciate the beauty of this app, and the beauty of the developer's soul to put it up for free(ads notwithstanding). One thing though, people should be made to know that the version of phpmyadmin which the app was set to install( was an interim development version, and is no longer on sourceforge resource pages. To fix this, manually download phpmyadmin Extract to the server directory pws/phpmyadmin. That'll fix it, and give the developer time to sort it out.

sandeep gopalan

Amazing and free I was able to host a WordPress site using this from my tablet. Only problem was updating phpmyadmin You have to download that from its website and put all files in phpmyadmin folder. Multi language version is not supporting download only English version. And put WordPress in www folder. Thanks for this wonderful app

Zahra Kamilah

Doesn't work on Samsung Note 5 It doesnt work on note 5. Please fix it to get better rating. The message box always tells me that the install is failed with error: unknown processor architecture.

Anonymous Surname

A bit outdated Not seems to work on cm13 android 6.0. Bind port but not showing and all retry with failures. The internal phpmyadmin URL needs to be updated.

Nathan Cook

Nice new UI, phpMyAdmin update is broke. Love the new UI. Showstopper is that I now can't do any SQL at all because phpMyAdmin must be updated and I always get Failed with java.exception.EOF or something like that. Fix would be nice. Ta. Still 4 stars for being better than anything else.

Derek Siedentopf

Won't run phpmyadmin even after manual install.... Your running mysql 4.2? The phpmyadmin source site doesn't even have or maintain a version that will run something that old! They only go back to 5.2 and we're at 5.6 general release right now. You haven't updated any of your repositories so the upgrade interface you advertise is useless. Fix your links to upgrade repositories and this will be the best webserver in the appstore.

Maula Rivada

Cant install in asus zenfone 2 Its actually really good app , i used in my dad's phone and work as well. But when i install in my device , it said that install failed with bla bla bla... Idk why it happen. Please fix it!! I really need this app. Some solution please

Andri Setyawan

Failed to download and install phpmyadmin. 5 stars if it solved

Ruzina Bagum

Phpmyadmin issue I can not download and install phpmyadmin. It says download error. Maybe your link dead. Please correct.

Mohd Iqbal

PhpMyAdmin Solution To those who have problem updating phpmyadmin from the app interface, just manually download exactly phpmyadmin version and extract it to the appropriate folder. Hope this suggestion help.
