Is it possible to make XAMPP runable from USB flash. Please point me to any resource where I can find instructions how to do it. I am interested to know procedures for Windows and GNU/Linux.

Thanks,

In XAMPP for Windows web site in the download section is a README link which links to the readme_en.txt file which states
* QUICK INSTALLATION:

[NOTE: Unpack the package to your USB stick or a partition of your choice.
There it must be on the highest level like E:\ or W:\. It will
build E:\xampp or W:\xampp or something like this. Please do not use the "setup_xampp.bat" for an USB stick installation!]

Hello,

I unpacked 7-zip version on my USB so it is f:/xampp
I copied php application Atutor (www.atutor.ca) to htdocs
I started xampp by clicking on xampp_start
After that I started xampp with http://localhost/xampp in my Firefox
After that I entered phpMyAdmin and created user and database
after that step I started installation of my Atutor which went normally and after completion of installation I started ATutor normally within my Firefox by typing
http://localhost/Atutor in my browser.

Best wishes,

Vedran
