A Portable server is the combination of popular web server software, namely Apache, MySQL, PHP and PhpMyAdmin. With a portable server, users can develop and display a developed website anywhere at any time as all web server configurations have been installed on the storage drive. Portable servers are ideal for displaying the offline version of the website anywhere when developing a website. Using a mobile server as well, users do not need hosting that requires complicated configuration and can be used to run tests before putting the website online. This study aims to obtain preliminary findings on building portable web server development kits for the teaching and learning process.
