Yes, I've done it, using XAMPP

Now the problem is how to make it "fool-proof" for a customer.

This was the solution:
Create a batch file that starts XAMPP, then XOOPS website, then closes XAMPP.
Create a shortcut and an icon to the batch file.

Easy, isn't it? Well, the problem is that I can't pause batch file execucion. So it starts XAMPP, opens my website using Internet Explorer and then, inmediately, closes XAMPP although we didn't close the IExplore window.

My problem is how could i make batch file wait for IExplore to be closed to shutdown XAMPP.

this code doesn't work:
Quote:
start /wait /max /b iexplore.exe http://localhost/garcialazaro


and using a PAUSE command sucks.

What can I do?

Go down to the Batch Commands area.

I was searching a solution to test XOOPS at work in my free time and i found many useful tools to run apache, MySQL and XOOPS from a virtual drive USB in this forum thread.
It runs perfect on USB key.

Good luck.

You could also try Webserver On A Stickwhich I have XOOPS running perfectly on.

Thanks for your reply.

The problem I have now is that I can't run this into a CD, cause Apache requires to write logs to run.

I've been looking how to deactivate "log writing" in Apache. I bet this is the only thing that prevents me from running XOOPS into a CD.

You will also need to write to the database...even logging in writes to the db.

Writing to the database is not needed, it will cause PHP warnings and errors, but the site will work. Anyway, this is not real problem, I can say to the customer: "ey, this is a demo CD, for this stuff to work you need a real server, not a CD".

The real problem is the Apache server.

Come on, people, help me and I'll release a "ready to run in a CD XOOPS distribution" for everyone.

Try commenting out the log module in /xampp/apache/conf/httpd.conf

#LoadModule log_config_module modules/mod_log_config.so

Redirect the log writing to the customers harddrive ????

Hey, what do I know... you did say cd, so I assume they are using a computer and runing the cd.

Just a thought based on extremely limited knowledge.
Good Luck
