Hi guys,

I am designing a survey that will be a computer assisted survey, but we will be going into the field to collect our answers and we have no guarantees that we will necessarily have internet access. SO i was wondering if i could host my survey locally in order to be able to conduct and record the surveys offline.

I understand that with the XAMPP installation i can use it locally on my computer, but after looking through the limesurvey information I dont know whether i can do something similar once the survey is active.

thanks

Yes, a XAMPP installation is fully functional and can be used to collect data.
Cheers,

Nowadays such surveys in the field are usually done using smartphones or tablets. We have recently released a free Limesurvey Android app called "OfflineSurveys" which allows to cache any Limesurvey survey on your Android device to use it offline.
Data can later be synced with the Limesurvey system automatically once Internet is available.
