Package and Deploy PHP Application - Help


Recommended Posts

Hi! I am an intermediate PHP scripter and I have developed a small application for small office use. I want to deploy this by packaging it along with a webserver(apache/xampp?) and database (mysql). I am looking for it to deploy like nola accounting pro (http://www.nolapro.com). This app comes packaged in an exe and can be installed on almost any windows machine.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

And this has to do with software design because... ?


Doesn't deployment come under the banner of application design?


Anyway, your best bet would be to look at something like NSIS, InstallShield or any of those installer programs. In the simplest case, you would download and install XAMPP onto your system, put your files in the htdocs folder, add your stuff to the database, disable and delete extensions you don't need, then run XAMPP through your installer-creating programs. Then you could install Apache and MySQL as services, create a desktop icon that points to localhost and you're right to go.


Questions regarding how you can create these installer packages are definitely suited for another category (Other languages perhaps?)
