Portable software to browse php files offline

Posted on 2011-10-25
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I'm looking for a software like Wamp (apache + php + mysql in one), but I need a portable version, not necessarily Wamp, I want to have a php website working instantly from cd, flash drive etc. offline without installing anything. What would you recommend?

Thanks for your help.

    This isn't something I've tried myself but a quick Google turned up the following:

    This is a guide on installing and using Xampp Lite.  Xampp is similar to Wamp and the Lite version I believe has relative paths configured so that you can install and run it from a USB memory stick etc.

    Might be worth a look.
