Make your own URL shortener. e.g. for the owner of example.com links can be shortened like so:
Impressively simple and easy to use. I chose it because it has one single very small script.
A PHP commandline helper for WordPress stuff and things.

I would NEVER EVER recommend regular humans go anywhere near running raw server software on their desktop. It's a horror - I mean truly a horror unlike any you've ever imagined - to get that shit to work, to lock it down and to keep it running. If for some reason you did want to run a server, use a proper server distribution. A branch will eventually crop up for Unity Linux I'm sure, but there are Linux and BSD distributions which excel at this task.
So for us regular humans, a LAMP (software bundle) is the best thing to use. This is a collection of all the necessary tools which have been pre-configured to cooperate and bundled together in one .. much easier to use package. This concept has become wildly improved over the years, and I've used a bunch of different packages.

Docmint is a CMS for making online manuals. I reviewed it briefly as a candidate for Unity Linux's online guidebook.

A report generator.
I used it to build intelligent lists which draw from various other pages scattered throughout the wiki via templates.
This is only an idea, and is not real.
If it existed, Phpss would be a simple website synchronization tool.
If it existed, it would be designed to be deployed on the source machine and will replicate files and a database to a remote target machine by FTP.
This is one of my random ideas. Feel free to implement it!

Bad Behavior is a set of PHP scripts which automatically blocks harvesters, spam bots, and other funky stuff BEFORE they can even see the content of the website.
MediaWiki is an extremely popular website engine, a Wiki, most famed for its use on Wikipedia.
The last version I used was MediaWiki version 1.15.1
