I am currently trying to get XAMPP to run off a CD. I have a wiki project that needs to be easily mass produced and handed to anyone with a WinXP box to check out as a read-only version of the wiki.
I have achieved this by putting XAMPP and MediaWiki onto a memory stick, which works just fine.
But when I burn it to CD, XAMPP needs to write temporary files, which it obviously can't do. I'm hoping there's a way to change settings on XAMPP so that Apache, MySQL and PHP can write their temporary files to %TEMP%.
