    I am hosting a website on my laptop, my client wants to view the site on the 1st as this is one of the mile stones. I really don't want to go through the hassle of uploading it all onto my host because it would involve a lot of mysql work... is there anyway i can just open up my laptop for the guy to view the site then shut it off again?

    If you're behind a router and firewall, forward port 80 to your laptop. However, it's quite likely port 80 is blocked by your ISP, in which case you can reconfigure Apache to use some other port that isn't blocked.

    You will want to put it on your host anyway. It will be far more reliable and faster.

    OK, do you know of any php scripts which can identify database tables then generate the code to enter the tables into another database?

    Why not use phpMyAdmin and export the tables as SQL, then on your host just copy and paste the SQL? If you don't have it you can get it and set it up easily, and I think most hosts have it or something similar.

    mysqldump, which is included with the MySQL distribution, can do it as well, although it's just clicking with phpMyAdmin.
