Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.
I have a desktop running Xp SP2 and a laptop running Vista Home Premium. I want to run Xampp on an external USB hard drive. The drive will appear as F drive on both computers. This makes me believe that I should use a top level folder ie F:/Xampp on the USB drive. Is the window installer version the appropriate package to use? The whole purpose of all this is to have a local installation of my website (TNG) run from my laptop browser when I am unable to connect to the Internet.

Use /Xampp instead of F:/Xampp in the config files.
Another way, use AMPstart to launch your web server. You do not need to change anything in your Xampp package. Simply put AMPstart in Xampp folder and run it.

thanks for this two great articles! i have one question about it. what can i delete when i use xampplite and ampstart. because i think i do not need some files which are standard in xampplite folder. for example xampp-control and so on. would be nice if you could tell, so that i can clean up the xampplite folder and optimize it.
