in reply to Perl with redistributable web server and mysql?
I'd be sorely tempted to try a redistributable docker image... yeah, ok, it'd be a bit of a pain to set up docker automatically on a windows host, but once you got that done once, the features you could add - mysql/sqlite, nginx/apache, redis, beanstalk, I mean, really, you name it. And it would also work on Macs and Linux systems just by setting up docker there as well.
Yeah, I've been playing with docker a bit lately. Suddenly, it has become my hammer to all the world's nail-looking problems :)
