seek recommendations for "web site" on live USB


I have this web-hosted application (PHP, mySQL, etc) that I want to run from a live USB. I don't want a second (4th, 7th, ...) career putting this together. Can someone offer suggestions about how to do this?

The app presents forms and collects information in the forms. Other parts of the app display "reports" based on the collected data. No magic. Pretty plain stuff.

My laptop and desktop systems are Linux Mint-11 or -12 which are *-buntu variants. Do I need to make a live linux USB then add the web parts? I hope there is some other options.

Thanks in advance,
~~~ 0;-Dan

Try Xampp, it's a portable LAMP stack so you can move it from machine to machine without issue and it's simple to configure.

I know and have used XAMPP.
I want something that will boot and run from a live-USB without concern about any pre-installed platform or distro. (Clearly,
something will be installed to the live-USB, but I don't want to think about whatever might be installed to the workstation drives.

Thanks,

Agreed. I know that I can use any distro and make a live-USB with some amount of persistent data.

QUESTION: Does anyone know about a live-USB distro-kit that is specific to the boot-to-web-site application?

Thanks,
