    Installing phpdev on a USB-stick


    this week a visited the website of firepages (phpdev) and found out that it should be possible to put a complete apache/ php installation on a usb stick. Because I really find this a usefull solution, I decided to give it a go!

    However I'm experiencing some difficulties, which I hope can be solved with the help of this forum.

    Let me start me of by saying that I've used a slightly different method than explained on the website, since I want to use Apache 1.3 and php 4.2.3.

    I copied the suggested structure of the website, with some modifications:


    In the Apache folder I copied the complete Apache installation of a previous phpdev423 installation. In the php folder I copied the php installation of the same phpdev423 installation.

    Furthermore I modified php.ini, start.bat, start.php and http.conf (see attachements).

    The problem I'm now experiencing is that when I click start.bat I get the following error: "This application has failed to start because php4ts.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem".

    The .dll is present in the file structure (usb/php/sapi/), but I'm not sure where to link to this .dll.

    I hope anyone has some suggestions on how to get my apache/ php installation to work on an usb-stick.

    Thanx in advance,

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)
