Subject Re: [users@httpd] make apache 2.4.17 portable under ubuntu [wd-vc]

1. all systems must have the same Ubuntu release.
2. on all systems, the stick needs to be mounted on the same directory
3. build apache with a apache root directory that is located on the mounted stick. Make sure
that nothing escapes you (conf location etc)
That should do the trick.

I have done a similar thing in AIX, where I installed apache in a VG apart from rootvg that
is shared between primary and backup server.

Betreff: [users@httpd] make apache 2.4.17 portable under ubuntu [wd-vc]


I used during several years a portable version of my webserver under windows 7/8 to shift
from laptop to desktop computer and without duplicating webserver from one computer to another.

i'm trying to do the same under ubuntu 15.04 however it seems that only few people did it.
1. why people under linux do not use portable webserver  (e.g. on USB drive) ?
2. how can i make apache 2.4.x portable, so to have all needed files (apache, php, openssl,
etc) on a USB drive and make it work as standard web server?
so in fact how to make apache looks after its configuration files and librairies under its
own directory where it will be stored ?

thanks a lot.
MySQL 5.6.x
Apache 2.4.7 / OpenSSL 1.0.1c
Tomcat 7.17
PHP 5.5
