Sometime ago i found and use another webserver that you can use on a USB stick or even on your camera's flash drive, it is called The Uniform Server.
The Uniform Server is a free product that you can use on the go because no installation is required to use it, and also it is an Open Source Project.
The Uniform Server is a WAMP package that allows to run a web server on Windows 95 or Windows 98 or Windows ME or Windows NT or Windows 2000 or Windows XP with the TCP/IP protocol installed correctly. You can use The Uniform Server as a production/live server or as a test server for your applications. There are also a miniServer Line of it that are smaller versions of the Uniform Server to make a more portable and mobile server environment on the GO, are fully secure and use the architecture of The Uniform Server for portability purposes.
Some of the products included in The Uniform Server Packages are:
BTW, The Uniform Server works very fine when i run and test it, but the only problem i had with it was related with the port 80, so if you use this port first disable the program or whatever it is that is using it.

This has taken me the best part of two days to solve and now I've got it working I feel so relieved I think I'll share the solution for anyone online who has the same problem. After constant googling I came up with either useless solutions that state the obvious or contain responses from people who offer no help what so ever.
The problem was I installed Apache 2.2.17 and PHP 5.2.14 on a x32 Vista Home SP2 HP Laptop. When I tried to start the apache server it wouldn't work. It did initially but when attempting to restart or stop and start the server it wouldn't. I even tried manually starting the apache server through the windows services app but it kept returning an Error 1067, which was no help at all, and the apache error log simply said it was PROBABLY a bad shutdown of the server previously.
I eventually narrowed the problem to PHP and not apache, after a lot of tedious trial and error work I might point out. As soon as I realised this then I gave up for the night and watched some DS9. Today I ran through a lot more tedious trial and error (because yet again the error log was NO help) and eventually narrowed the problem down to the extensions. If you don't have any PHP extensions included in your php.ini file then php and apache work perfectly. I thought it might have been a particular dll however the same error occurred no matter which or how many extensions were included in the .ini file. Obviously having no extensions in php is useless if you want to use a database, use OpenSSL in your php and so on so to make the whole excercise worthwhile I had to knuckle down and work on this specific problem as fast as I possibly could without hesitation or delay...12 hours later I finally got a working solution which you need to follow exactly if you are having the same problem.
Download Apache 2.0.64
Download PHP 5.2.9-2
Install apache as you normally would, then when installing PHP ensure you install EVERY sub-option. A spare copy of the php manual and also PEAR can't hurt really can it? Plus the client script is essential.
Next right-click on "Computer" (either on your desktop or start menu depending on how you have vista configured), "Properties" then on the side bar "Advanced system settings" and at the bottom of the new window click "Environment Variables".
Now in the lower box scroll down until you find an entry where the "variable" name is "Path", double-click on it and check the value of "Variable value" contains: C:\Program Files\PHP\ext\;
If it doesn't contain that value then add it to the start of the "Variable value" value, just MAKE SURE THE REST OF THE TEXT IN THIS BOX REMAINS UNCHANGED OR YOU CAN REALLY SCREW YOUR SYSTEM.
Right, now the problem should be solved. There seems to be some kind of problem with PHP 5.2.11-5.2.14 when installing it on Vista, and personally the 2.0.x version of apache is in my opinion the most stable.
So I hope this solves the problem in case anyone is having similar problems, and if one single person mentions Wamp in this thread then I swear to god I will e-Punch you lol Wamp is terrible, a complete novices choice, it's both unnecessarily complicated to configure both apache and php and also doesn't enable all configuration options in either as well. What they fail to mention is that it is a stripped down version of apache, mysql, apache and phpmyadmin and serves no advanced uses what so ever. So yes, any mention of Wamp and I will hunt you down and slap you round the face with a wet kipper. And don't even get me started on Xampp lol
