because we are not allowed to. And Why? Well there is almost 1000 students in our school and if everybody installs something to local harddisk... U guess the rest.
I understand that, i was just making sure that this wasn't because you simply didn't want to install it on 20 computers.
I'm not totally sure if this would work out, but you could put a copy of xampp on a shared folder with read-only access, and allow the students to run it from there. And then have a folder on each computer that they can put their php files and whatever else in, and use the config files to set that folder as the document root.
If that doesn't work i would just install xampp on all of the computers, and by doing this yourself you can still tell the other students that they cannot install their own software, and that only you can install it. You could also you use group policy, if you have it, to lock down the program so that only specific students can use it.
Can you not use the portable version from a usb pen.
The link that was in the forum was dead and i was unable to find any working download links for it. If you know of one that is working i think it would be perfect for this situation.
