LimeSurvey (formerly PHPSurveyor) is a free and open source on-line survey application written in PHP based on a MySQL, PostgreSQL or MSSQL database, distributed under the GNU General Public License.[1] As a web server-based software it enables users to develop and publish on-line surveys, and collect responses, without doing any programming.

Installation 8.x 9.x

This contrib is currently held in the fws repository, so the following commands will install on your smeserver.

yum install --enablerepo=fws smeserver-limesurvey

You will then need to activate the database changes etc. The 'official' way is to perform

signal-event post-upgrade;  signal-event reboot

or if you do not want to restart your computer

signal-event webapps-update

There is no panel in the server-manager, you can go to https://yourserver/limesurvey and perform a login with users and passwords of your internal ldap.

Initially, the survey will only be accessible from your local network. If you want your survey to be accessible from outside your local network, you need to do

 /sbin/e-smith/db configuration setprop limesurvey access public
 signal-event webapps-update


yum remove smeserver-limesurvey limesurvey
signal-event post-upgrade;  signal-event reboot
