i did something like that once, but it's a while ago. I used some
installer-creator-program-thingy to create an install.exe that whould
install apache and mysql service (in the background =D) and php, insert
the content to the database and copy the php files to htdocs dir, and
than created some shortcuts. This was on a windows machine. It's a bit
of a struggle to make something like that (lots of clicking and trying
before the program makes what you want) but it pays off in an executable
where all the receiving user has to do is run install.exe and
everything's setup.

so eh - it's something like that. i guesse it whould be harder if you
want to make something like that for linux, but i never tried that to be
honest... as I said it's a while ago - so I don't remember what program
I used or how I did it... but I did it, so to answer your question:

yes there is a way to do that =) I didn't make a fake server by the way
- it was the real thing mate, on the local machine dough...

You can direct the output to hard coded html. I don't recall the
technique but it's something simple to spit out the whole thing hard coded.

There is software to do this, I can't remember what it's called. Google it.
It runs in memory. Supports database access as well.

Yes.

Not a fake server, a real one. Install Apache or the like, plus the PHP
stuff, and you can run PHP scripts.

I used the package at EasyPHP to install Apache/PHP/MySQL all at once.

I did that once but I did it manually as there were only about 20 pages.

Doesn't work any more 'cause I was using an eval version of Borland Delphi
:-(

I'm working on a improved C++ version.
