MySQL/PHP application -> CD-ROM executable
any suggestions for having a web application & data put to CD

 4:00 pm on May 5, 2003 (gmt 0)

I'd like to distribute a small PHP application and it's corresponding MySQL database on a CD. I'd like it to be as easy to use as possible without requiring the installation of MySQL or PHP applications on the end user's workstation.

What exactly would this require and what tools are available to help? Thanks!

I would take a look at the Scripting Library [webmasterworld.com].

seems to be a thread about "Putting a Dynamic PHP/MySQL Site On CD"

Because of the binaries you are of course limited only to a single OS. You might want to think about putting an aditional static version on the CD (if that is possible...)

RTFM eh? :)

Thanks for the replies. After examining the project, it makes much more sense to simply use a static HTML version output from the original PHP.

i didnt mean that. The thread is a great one and there is quite the saga that i wouldnt even try to paraphrase. :)
