Version 5.3.11+220425 results in a 404 for download URL Version 5.3.12+220502 works.

package() contains this message:

echo "configure your webserver and phpbackend. Files are at /usr/share/webapps/limesurvey. In the browser, go to /index.php?r=installer."

In most cases, the user who builds an AUR package is the same as the one who installs it - but I feel like this message would be better fitting during package install. What do you think? Thanks for packaging this, indeed!

@danieltetraquark: to get back to your question from almost 2 years ago (sorry, I must have overlooked it): I think you are right. Even if using php-fpm one should use separate process managers per webapp and allowing write access to random directories for the default php-fpm by installing a webapp does not feel like the arch way. Maybe expanding the notice during install with the specific directories that require write access for limesurvey to function correctly would spare some headache during first time installs. Thanks for keeping the package up to date, btw :)

While upgrading from 4.x limesurvey required write access to application/config/security.php to update/regenerate encryption keys. I only use limesurvey occasionally, maybe some regular users can pitch in if it makes sense to symlink it to /etc/webapps/limesurvey as well.

Now with 5.0.0, php8 is supported. Please adjust your webbrowser setup accordingly. Thanks ;)

@9-r Thanks for the note. I don't think we should do this, because there are other ways to run php than php-fpm (like uwsgi for example), thus I think it should be rather configured by the admin (just like open_basedir). Or am I on a wrong path?

With the recent php update to 7.4 strikter write permissions are enforced via systemds ProtectSystem=Full directive in the php-fpm.service unit file.

This leads to full failure of my limesurvey instance with a notice about missing write access to /usr/share/webapps/limesurvey/tmp/runtime/

I was able to resolve the issue by excluding the limesurvey subfolders "tmp" and "upload" from readonly access for the php-fpm service.

I would suggest to add the following lines or something similar to the package () function in PKGBUILD to permanently create the necessary override during installation.

mkdir "$pkgdir"/etc/systemd/system/php-fpm.service.d/ echo "ReadWritePaths=/usr/share/webapps/limesurvey/tmp/ /usr/share/webapps/limesurvey/upload" > "$pkgdir"/etc/systemd/system/php-fpm.service.d/limesurveyReadWritePaths.conf

@cssanchez fixed.

cssanchez commented on 2019-09-08 01:09 (UTC)

The pkg version needs to be updated again. Last release was yesterday and they broke the link to your version. >.>

Sorry for the wait - and thank you for your effort!

Sadly, I still get the following results :S

@matschi could you try the latest PKGBUILD, please?

matschi commented on 2018-03-30 11:01 (UTC) (edited on 2018-03-30 11:02 (UTC) by matschi)

The download fails - don't know whether it's temporary or if they rebuilt the page/link design.

rafaelff commented on 2017-12-30 19:08 (UTC)

The package description should be changed to "The open source survey application" (then->the) or "The FOSS survey application" (as it is also Free Software, and Free Software and Open Source are not the same thing...)

matschi commented on 2017-10-09 13:59 (UTC)

There is a newer version, could you update the package? Thanks in advance!

matschi commented on 2017-04-13 14:48 (UTC) (edited on 2017-04-13 14:49 (UTC) by matschi)

The PKGBUILD is still broken - the unpacked archive is called "LimeSurvey-2.63.1-170305" while the PKGBUILD is looking for ${pkgname} = "limesurvey". A simple workaround is setting a new variable for the unpacked Foldername, replacing two ${pkgnames} and adding one corrective ${pkgname} like in @mawcomw Thanks for the work, but I believe long-term maintainance of this package and updates might be easier by using the git-link. What do you think? regards,

mawcomw commented on 2017-03-01 16:24 (UTC)

i'll update this weekend. sorry for the delay.

avamk commented on 2017-02-28 13:59 (UTC)

@mawcomw Can you please update this package?? Thanks a lot!

matschi commented on 2017-01-30 17:11 (UTC)

Would be great to have an updated package :)

matschi commented on 2016-11-25 15:20 (UTC)

Any news on the issue :) ?

matschi commented on 2016-08-17 16:12 (UTC)

Install fails install: cannot stat .../aur-limesurvey/src/limesurvey/docs/license.txt': No such file or directory

matschi commented on 2016-03-01 07:39 (UTC)

Any news from upstream?

mawcomw commented on 2016-02-09 16:35 (UTC)

The limesurvey project does not provide a predictable URL, so it is difficult to maintain the download link up to date. I will talk with upstream to try a solution.
