This module installs Limesurvey from the website..

Optionally MySQL and Apache2 are installed and managed by this module. However, both classes can be overwritten.


Beginning with limesurvey

Basically this module downloads the code from and places it into the specified directory. Without the database class included you need to install and manage the database by yourself. Same for the websever and PHP.


A basic example using both webserver and database

        class { 'limesurvey':
            dbname            => 'limesurvey',
            dbpassword        => 'foobar',
            dbuser            => 'lemongrab',
            sql_root_password => 'foobar',
            manage_webserver  => false,
