    Ok, I'm a dope ...

    This isn't designed to keep any WP settings, posts, etc. (anything stored in the database) is it?

    I can setup the webserver and WP fine. It installs and runs fine. But if I restart the webserver (or like when my daughter disconnects my stick), I lose my install and have to create a new database (I see 'wordpress' there but it can't find the tables) and start over.

    Granted, it's no biggie when I'm testing and just playing around -- but I would like to setup a test system to use for a presentation for work in a few weeks, and would like to just be able to plug in my stick and have a ready-made test system waiting on me.

    Update: I turned off the 3 options to delete log/tempfiles after stopping WOS and restarted and all of my data came up as if it were online. A bug perhaps? (I didn't think the deletion of logfiles would erase database data?)

    So anyways, thought I'd post that here in case anyone else ran into this.
