Has anyone done this before? Is there any known issues?
It does work. However there are some things you need to get your attention to.
- It only runs on windows (if you encounter a linux pc, maybe it is possible to use the .zip file instead.)
- Everyone has access to it because dropbox is a sync service, so every file is executed on the client computer instead of the host (dropbox) computer.
- You need to set the firewall on every computer (lots of work i guess!) and sometimes a virus scanner.
My advice would be (if you want to keep your privacy) to buy a USB device (I use an WD Passport Essentials SE, however any USB stick would do) and install XAMPP on there.
EDIT: I did use the normal XAMPP installation not the XAMPPLITE edition!
