1. Look up the size of the XAMPP download file for your OS ( http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html ). Then see if you have enough space on the USB stick to put it there. I suppose you don't mean to install it on the USB stick.

2. That depends on your connection speed. I have a very fast cable connection, so it will d/l fast. Surely it's slower on a ADSL.

3. Using PhpMyAdmin ( http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/index.php ), you can export the databases for back-up.

Someone is hosting your USB stick? wacko.gif

I don't know if you can get all of that to run off an USB stick, but probably someone has managed to do so... I'm curious about why you want to do it though.

Already installed it and it works, but know i got a new problem:
Notice: Undefined variable: username in I:\xampp\htdocs\index.php on line 11

Notice: Undefined variable: password in I:\xampp\htdocs\index.php on line 11

There is something wrong in this code:
<?php

mysql_connect("localhost", "username", "password") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("members") or die(mysql_error());
if (!$username && !$password) {
echo "<p style= 'text-align: right'><strong> Welcome Guest! - <a href='login.php'> Login </a>| <a href='register.php'>Register </a></p></strong>";
}
else {
echo "<p>Welcome $username!</p> <a href='logout.php'> Logout </a>";
}
?>

What i want is to display his/her username and logout if that person is logged in or else welcome guest login or register, if u got a better code without problems please post it
The problem is NOT in selecting database/connecting to host

CODE
mysql_connect("localhost", "username", "password")

The above tries to connect to localhost using the username "username" and password "password". Probably you want to use PHP variables instead:

CODE

$username='foo';
$password='bar';
mysql_connect("localhost", $username, $password);



CODE
if (!$username && !$password)

If these variables are not defined I think you get a notice about the above.

I think you should use the IP address of the computer. I had to do that too on the localhost server on my Mac.
