Hello,

We are trying to install limesurvey for a standalone mac (Mac OS X, version 10.5.8). We just need this one computer for an off-line survey in an art gallery, for the public to use after they see an art exhibition.

I have downloaded version 1.92 to a folder but am not sure what requirements are needed to build a survey. Do I need XAMPP or MAMP? I know XAMPP is recommended for an offline standalone windows machine, but could not find info on mac requirements.

(also I am not really a mac person so I may be missing obvious info.)

any help, first on system requirements, would be appreciated.

thank you,
Jennifer in Cortland, NY

Does the Bitnami version also work for a Mac?

Hi Mazi,

I downloaded from: www.macupdate.com/app/mac/40929/bitnami-limesurvey-stack/

I made more progress this way, because before I think I was lacking apache etc. that is needed for limesurvey to run. Still, I was not able to get to the limesurvey interface in which you actually build the survey. I will post again if I get it fully functioning.

thank you,
Jennifer

Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

HI,

I have the same problem. I downloaded Lime survey with Mammp, but I cannot get access to the interface where you build the survey. When I hit the the bottom to the administrative panel I only get the message "no available surveys" and a drop down list of languages.

This is the index page. You needt to go to the folder /admin/, probably something like http://localhost/limesurvey/admin/

I still can't get it:

When I go to http://localhost/limesurvey/admin, this is what I get:

Not Found

The requested URL /limesurvey/admin was not found on this server.

When I go to http://localhost:8080/limesurvey/admin/

I get the message I mentioned above.

Do you have any other suggestion?

Thanks.
