As in the title: Where can I find XAMPP Lite distributions for Windows? The Apache Friends website doesn't host it anymore.

If not, are there any comparable alternatives?

I would like to keep my development environment sync'ed from my NAS in order to work on it on every machine - Synchronization takes too much time when there are 5000+ files which require an update.

You can still download Lite by going straight to the Sourceforge project files, but it seems that a build for 1.7.4 never happened. You can grab for 1.7.3 there if you want, though.
A few forum threads have already been opened asking about it, but no response from the devs.

Just in case, here is another alternative:


You might also check out the Lite or Web-Installer of the WPN-XM Server Stack.
