Subject: Website cannot be open By: Abu Date: 15/09/2012

Hi, I've a question about this software. I've encountered this few times.

Out of sudden, sometimes I cannot open the web page. The browser shows an error message such as "Website cannot be found". I've tried restarting my laptop, no luck.

So what usually I did was extract the wp-portable file to new directory and copy over all the themes I'm currently developing.

Subject: Run 2 wordpress By: Ahmad Date: 16/08/2012


Thanks for the software. I've been using it for few weeks, and really like it.

However, I do have a question. How do I run multiple wordpress site using this software?
By default, I can access it from localhost/wordpress. I wish to install more wordpress site like localhost/site1, localhost/site2 etc since sometimes I need to work on multiple website, so I think it'll be easier to have multiple website rather than having to activate and deactivate the theme all the time.


Subject: Re: Run 2 wordpress By: Nuno Date: 13/09/2012

Hi Ahmad,

You can try the following:
1. Copy the folder "www\wordpress" to a new one (e.g. "www\wordpress2")
2. Copy the folder "mysql\data\wordpress" to a new one (e.g. "mysql\data\wordpress2")
3. Edit the file "www\wordpress2\wp-config.php" and change the database name to "wordpress2"

Hope that will do,

hello, i tried the above method but it doesn't work, going to localhost/wordpress2 returns a blank page and localhost/wordpress2/wp-admin redirects to first site login page.
i had install the whole package to a new directory and turn wp-portable on and off to switch site.
do you have a better solution? maybe setting up a network of blog could do ( i will try when i have more time)

Subject: The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini. By: Rikki Date: 30/03/2012

I got this error when trying to upload a theme (3.86MB file size), I'm trying to fix the error by changing the upload_max_size, increasing it from 2 in the php.ini file, but it doesn't get me a different result, the error is stil there....any advice to make it work

Subject: Re: The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini. By: Nuno Date: 13/09/2012

Hi Rikki,

If you're running WP Portable you should have no problem copying the theme directly to the themes folder. No need for uploads.


Subject: Can this be used to design a website offline and then upload to server? By: Dee Date: 26/02/2012

I have hosting which I paid for with a hosting company and they do offer MySQL and Installatron versions of WordPress, but I really like the idea of being able to work on a WordPress blog on my own PC, so I have all the benefits of the speed of working off my own hard drive. I also have a long list f plugins I usually have to manually add to each of my WordPress websites, so was thinking I could start off with your basic version of WordPress and then add all the plugins I usually use and then just copy the entire folder and then I have the basics for any future websites i setup in WordPress.

So far everything seems to be working really well. But what I want to know is if I design a website using this portable system, how do I go about importing the entire thing to my hosting company's server?

I assume I can just copy the files and import the MySQL Database, but where do I find the default database usernames and passwords?

Subject: how to "uninstall" wp portable? By: Nicole Date: 07/02/2012

when I double click the wp-portable exe file my computer "thinks" for a moment and then nothing happens. I wanted to try and run it off of my root C drive, but i can't seem to get anything to work. When I go to localhost/wordpress it gives me a blank page and says "wp-portable." After spending hours not being able to get this to work I'm just going to go back to setting up a dev server on a subdomain for the wp sites I work on. Is there anything I need to do to simply "uninstall" wp-portable so no trace I left on my system or can I just delete the entire folder I extracted and be done with it?


Subject: Re: how to "uninstall" wp portable? By: Rich Date: 09/02/2012

After you double click wp-portable.exe, a WordPress icon appears in the system tray.

Right click on the icon and select "open WordPress in browser" the browser should open with the default WP page.

Note that at some point you might get a warning from your anti-virus software. Just allow it proceed.

To get to the Dashboard, click "Log in" and use "admin" as both the user name and password.

When done with WP, right click on the WP icon and select "Exit". This shuts down the webserver.

Subject: Some .ini amendments and exit fix for Windows 7 By: Constantino Date: 01/02/2012


Apologies, I am not a programmer or developer so its possible some of the below is wrong.

1. The links to WP-Portable website are wrong or out of date. Obviously they should be https://wordpress-portable.webnode.com/ see under [AboutText] and [Website]

2. The command tskill.exe does not work in Windows 7 Home Premium. In order to make the application quit successfully you need to use taskkill.exe. Under [ExitProgram] replace this line:
Action: run; FileName: "%System%\tskill.exe"; Parameters: "httpd-wpp"; WorkingDir: "%System%"; ShowCmd: hidden;
with this
Action: run; FileName: "%System%\taskkill.exe"; Parameters: "/f /im httpd-wpp.exe"; WorkingDir: "%System%"; ShowCmd: hidden;

3. To add a menu shortcut to the theme folder in the tray menu do the following (maybe someone can help improve this part as this will have to be tailored to each user as the explorer command uses windows switches so I couldn't set it to open to the right folder without typing out the entire path) Under [Menu.Right] and [Menu.Left] enter the following line:
Type: item; Caption: "Browse Theme Folder"; Action: multi; Actions: Browse; Glyph: 2
NB: The glyph file is in bin/wpp/ and is called wpp.gli. Open with an image viewer to see the icons (Windows Photo Viewer works). The icons are numbered 0-18 left to right.
Also add Type:separator if required
Then add a new item somewhere below, for example between [Wordpress] and [PhpInfo]:
Action: shellexecute; Filename: "%System%\explorer.exe"; Parameters: "/root,c:\<YOUR_WP-PORTABLE-FOLDER>\www\wordpress/"

Hope this is of some use to someone...

Hi Constantino!

I believe #1 and #2 have been fixed with the WPP 3.3.1 version (released yesterday). If you don't see it try refreshing the homepage.

#3 seems like a nice feature. I'll check it out when possible.

Thanks for the input.
