New to Xampp. For the time being I just want to study php. I want to install everything (particularly Lite) onto a flash drive.
Can I download everything onto it and work from there or will I need
any ties with the C: drive?

- Download the zip-Version,
- unzip it on your flash drive (root directory)
- execute the setup_xampp.bat
- start Apache, MySQL, etc.

If your Drive is portable, you can't locate your XAMPP absolutely (Drive Letters can change), so you can't use Windows Services with it.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
