You can install XAMPP to your computer but one of our readers asked to install XAMPP on a USB drive. Do you know how to do that?
If XAMPP isn't recommend, would a seperate installation of apache/mysql/php on google drive be sufficient? I have two ideas of how to go about this: Install the USB Portable version on google drive; Install the full version on PC, then move it to google drive and symlink the location to the drive folder. Google Drive - How to List all Files in a specified folder. This is what I came up with, thanks to the help of the above code and some other code I found, put the two together and it does what I need. It may be useful for some one else. If you already have XAMPP installed, startup Apache and Mysql. There are two method to setup ownCloud on your local machine, first is web install, the other is extract the entire software copy and past it to the htdocs directory.
