I prefer XAMPP, but it does basically the same.

Consider a VM.  There are lots of pre-build LAMP appliances available for VMWare, and you'd be able to move this appliance wherever you need it if that is ever necessary.

+1 for XAMPP:

Easy to deploy and use. Runs beautifully locally.

The VM route seems excessive just for an AMP stack... if the project includes file-system manipulations, an SOA model, or non-standard versions of the stack, it might make sense, but not as described so far.

I guess problem has been solved but still... My recommendation is to go with your own setup (its mostly moving files around and clicking the Next button) or with Uniform Server ( Its way lighted than XAMPP and provides same functionality.

SQLite is by far the easiest way to do this sort of thing.
