Is it possible to have a php website that runs on a Flash Drive?  Is there a way to package that with something like xampp?  If so is there an example someplace?

Download it from here.

It still requires that Apache be started up before you can browse the server, so if you were expecting to just give someone this and say load it in your browser then it won't work.

This search https://www.google.com/search?q=portable+wamp will bring too many examples to list here for both WAMP and XAMPP.
