Mobile Web Server will turn your phone into a web server. You can even install PAMP (Personal Apache MySQL PHP) in it, but I didn’t try installing PAMP, because I haven’t seen the use of it yet (except for draining my battery faster). The basic web server can be accessed by the world, or you can just make it locally accessible. I have tried this software before, but at that time, I didn’t see any use of it, but now, things have changed, and I found several use of it.
The mobile web server provides many applications (blog, calendar, etc), but I didn’t use most of the features. First use is to view some SMS with Thai text. My phone doesn’t have proper support for Thai language (it was bought in Indonesia), so all Thai characters appear as boxes. With JoikuSpot Light, I can see the text on my desktop browser, and I can even see the text on my iPod touch. This is very nice.
The second use is to quickly get a picture from the phone to the desktop. Using Bluetooth from PC I can not preview to select which image to transfer, and browsing the images in the phone then sending it takes quite some time. This is also useful to transfer pictures from the phone to iPod touch, to be used in Facebook application (or any other applications).
Here is a tip on how to make JoikuSpot Light edition works with mobile web server. If you connect via WIFI through JoikuSpot Light, you will be directed to a landing page (JoikuSpot page), and you can not access the web server (because it tries to use the same port).
To make it accessible, just change the web server port. To edit the web server port, edit the file the file httpd.conf in \Data\Web server\conf. Find the line Listen 80 to Listen 82 (or some other port). The comment lines above it says you must change the server port setting in the Apache UI (but I can not find the setting). Anyway, it works just by stopping the server, editing the file, and starting the server again. You can edit from desktop, or just use Dedit to edit directly from the phone.
You can download mobile web server and register your site at http://mymobilesite.net/. I won’t bother sharing my site here, because most of the time my site will be offline. Btw, I think it will be much nicer if someone can change the current web applications to use the iPod touch user interface.
