Justin's Blog:
How to turn a php script to an exe...for free
May 14, 2009 @ 07:57:00

In a new post to his blog today Justin points out a tool you can use - WApache - to turn your PHP script into a stand-alone executable file.

There are a few commercial products out there that allow you to turn your php scripts into an executable. While most of them work well, I have found a way to do it for free, using an open source application. This application is called Wapache (based on the apache web server) and it is open source (distributed under the Apache License 2.0). WApache doesn't convert your script directly into an executable, it runs on the combination of a windows app (which uses an embedded IE control) and a stripped down version of apache.

The tool acts as a wrapper around the script, making it look and feel like a normal executable Windows file. Your PHP scripts stay intact and can be changed at any time without needing to recompile or anything. There's also some configuration options included that let you customize the interface.

JSLabs Blog:
How to turn a php script to an exe...for free
October 26, 2007 @ 07:56:00

From the JSLabs blog today, there's a mini-tutorial on how to convert your PHP files into executable files (.exe) to be used on Windows.

There are a few commercial products out there that allow you to turn your php scripts into an executable. While most of them work well, I have found a way to do it for free, using an open source application. This application is called Wapache (based on the apache web server) and it is open source (distributed under the Apache License 2.0).

WApache does the trick by combining your script with stripped down versions of an IE browser and an Apache web server. This is compiled together and pushed out the other end as an executable file. Instructions are included in the post to get you started making the .exe files quickly.
