Subject: Windows 7 By: Bruce Date: 12/07/2010

I can not seem to be able to get this to work under windows 7

I tried it under xp compatible mode and it opened right up.

Any idea what is stopping windows 7 from opening localhost. All I get is a blank page

Subject: I can't make it work... By: Marcello Date: 12/06/2010

Hi all there and thx this great work.
Unfortunately on my windows xp sp3 I can't make it work. I am new of WP, but anyway... I've extracted all the content from the WP-Portable-2.9.1.zip to a new forlder on my desktop and clicked on WP-Portable.exe: of course, the little wp icon apperared down right, near the watch, but when i click on it appears a page that says "Sorry! This link does not seem to be working. "
Where I am wrong,please?

Subject: Multiple site By: joy Date: 23/05/2010

Hi. This is very good what you are developing. I just wondering.. can we make multiple wordpress site in the same usb, so that we can work on multiple project at once? if yes, how? thanks a lot.

Subject: Re: Multiple site By: Wordpress Portable Date: 05/06/2010

WordPress 3.0 will come with mutliple site capabilities. Right now you have to install WordPress yourself in another folder. To connect to the database you must use the user root with no password.

What I do now is keep a full WP-Portable stack for each project.

•I know a program - autorunpro (freeware) that can autostart multiple files - I will be needing this because I also need to run a intro video then the the index.php file

Subject: Wordpress portable launcher By: Murray Date: 25/03/2010


I have been playing this and it is working well. I even exported a site from wordpress.com and imported it basically intact onto usb stick - amazing!

I am interested in your launcher app - did you write this in autohotkey or autoit? I am using a portable wiki (dokuwiki) which also runs micro apache, but it causes a dos window to be open while you are running it. Can you provides some tips how you avoided that?

Subject: Error establishing a database connection By: Mitch Date: 16/03/2010

All went great with the set-up, and the blog was up and running for two weeks. Today, in the middle of adding a sidebar widget, I couldn't update the blog. I logged out and tried to log back in and now get the database error.

1) How do I access the database? Because this hosted locally, I don't know how to access phpMyAdmin, and the installation instructions were a mystery.

2) I have not changed wp-config. Is there some other reason that this error suddenly would block me from accessing the local site?

If anyone has any ideas how to address this error on an unhosted, portable blog, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you.

Subject: Re: Error establishing a database connection By: Mitch Date: 17/03/2010

Here is how I got the blog to work again.

1) phpMyAdmin. I could not successfully install pma; kept getting an error indicating I was having permissions issues ("Cannot start session without errors..."). I did not know how to fix permissions on local files (since this is a local install). Tried everything I could to update permissions on folders.

2) Error logs. I checked the error logs in apache2/bin and saw which table was corrupted.

3) Database repair. I added a line to the config.inc.php to allow database repair, but it failed.

4) Backup file. I pulled the original download of WP Portable, copied the files from mysql/data for the corrupted table and overwrote them.

I lost only a few fixes from that table, but my site was right back up.

The culprit was the footer widgets, which I see from comments have caused trouble for other. I have commented them out now so they can't wreak havoc again.

Subject: Re: Re: Error establishing a database connection By: WordPress Portable Date: 22/03/2010

Hi Mitch,

Sorry I couldn't answer you sooner. I'm glad you managed to correct that issue successfully.

For future reference, I use HeidiSQL (also portable) to connect to the database. It's a good substitute to phpMyAdmin.

Thank you for puting the workaround here.

Subject: Re: Re: Re: Error establishing a database connection By: Mitch Date: 29/03/2010

Actually, wp_options crashed again today, and I did not want to have to rebuild again from a swapped in table. So I did try HeidiSQL, thanks, and was able to access the tables and do a repair and optimize. Unfortunately, categories are a bit screwy now (the sub-cats don't all show up now in the top navbar or side). But at least I have a solution for table admin - thank you!

Subject: Re: Re: Re: Re: Error establishing a database connection By: Mitch Date: 29/03/2010

If anyone else runs into this, the two tables that crashed were wp_options and wp_term_relationships. When I checked my posts in WP, the categories were still visible in Edit Posts, but when I looked at Categories, many of them showed posts=0 for some categories (even though the posts still displayed the category in Edit Posts). That's why they were not showing up in the sidebar.

I went back to Edit Posts and quick edited those posts to delete the category, save, then reselect the category, and it synched back up.

Went into Heidi but could not find the table that connected posts to categories.

Subject: WPP By: Michael Date: 05/03/2010

is it possible to put created site, articles etc. from wpp on my webspace? what do i need to do this?
(my english is not so good, sorry ;o) )

This is very great!

Subject: Re: WPP By: WordPress Portable Date: 22/03/2010

Hi Michael,

You can use the export/import features available on wordpress. You can find it in menu "tools".
If you have done some theme customization you may also have to copy your custom theme to the server.


Subject: Thanks for this By: Krom8 Date: 19/01/2010

Thanks for putting this together. This is the easiest way to edit a local copy of wordpress thanks to you. For anybody having a problem in Vista with not being able to connect to local host I found an article explaining how to fix it. It's an issue with Vista and 7.

Subject: Re: Thanks for this By: WordPress Portable Date: 19/01/2010

Thank you for making me aware of that issue with Vista/7.

For those having this problem, please check:

Subject: Changing Apache port By: Bob Date: 13/01/2010


thanks for your work! However, on my machine I need to change the port of the Apache server. I have found out how I can change the port even for wordpress but now when I log in it only redirects me to the login page. Can you recommend a way to change this port from 80 to something else with Wordpress Portable?

Many thanks,

Subject: Re: Changing Apache port By: WordPress Portable Date: 14/01/2010

Edit wp-config.php and define the variables WP_SITEURL and WP_HOME with your new address (e.g. https://localhost:8080/wordpress). For more information on how to do it please check https://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php

Let me know if it works.
