Is there a PHP library or API that would let me quickly build survey questionnaires and dump the captured data to MySQL?

I’m looking for an open source tool that functions a little like I work LAMP, so PHP is preferred.

If you are familiar with LAMP and PHP, why not build a little CRUD application?

I’m have the guts of one now, but it’s a pain to update the schema every time, branding it is a drag because I didn’t lay out the CSS properly, etc, etc. I’m hoping there’s something off the shelf I can play with quickly, since this seems to be coming up a lot, and I don’t have time to build something flexible enough.

So you are looking for an open-source survey application written in PHP for MySQL.

There are tons of them on

Awesome. Which one is good?

Up to you to try. I write my own applications. Look for something with active development.

check out Advanced Survey ( and LimeSurvey (

Lime is very professional for an open source project and they recently released a significant upgrade.
