How to install WordPress on a USB stick takes you through installing and configuring XAMPP-Lite to install WordPress on a USB. Infact, you can follow the guide it on your hard disk as well.
Thanks Ajay for your segnalation about this very interesting tutorial. Great! Installing WordPress on a USB stick could be so useful for me.
Hey, that’s an original idea.
or maybe not?
I really don’t see the point of this; why would you want to blog on a local copy of the real site? What’s wrong with simply putting Notepad++ portable on it?
@gidibao, you’re welcome.
@Leftblank, I believe the purpose of this is not to blog, but to test themes, plugins etc.
thats a really stupid question. Like Ajay said you can use it for testing things before finalizing it on the web.
Well, then my point still lies there, I don’t see much of a value in being able to test new plugins/themes ‘anywhere’, especially not Xampp tends to be (very) slow, especially on USB sticks…
Everything is slow on a USB stick
Here’s my source, http://urbangiraffe.com/2005/0.....-computer/
I’ve used both WordPress On A Stick and XAMMP Lite. I think XAMPP Lite is a bit faster; it’s definitely smaller, although only by a few megs.
@Leftbank – I can take my stick anywhere and develop themes and plugins for WordPress. I don’t care that it’s slow. I care that I get my plugins and themes as error-free as I can. I can plug the flash drive into any Windows 2000 or Windows XP computer and work on the theme or plugin, even without any internet connection.
I work in a higher ed environment. Putting WordPress on a Stick is geeky, but it makes a great tool for organizing classes or projects (even digital textbooks as a single WP site). If the student had a microphone, it would also be possible to add mp4 audio commentary to their portable WP site(s). A twenty chapter textbook, with all it’s still images, and many mp4 clips could easily fit on a USB drive. Even without Internet connectivity, a student would have their basic textbook available.
