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.

Maybe you should check WampServer:

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.

URL for forum search: http://www.apachefriends.org/f/search.php?st=0&sk=t&sd=d&sr=posts&keywords=lite&fid[]=16 (It's being ignored/stripped by the answer textarea, for some reason when I try to make a proper link with it.)
