What Version of Limesurvey is used?
We update our LimeSurvey Installation quickly and regurlarly
currently we run version 2.05+,
Limesurvey is Opensource and free, why do i need your webservice?
Well... the software itself is Open Source...
...but you still need a webspace to host it.
...or you don't want to spend money for a dedicated limesurvey hosting.
...you don't know how to setup limesurvey.
...you just want to try limesurvey out before you install it on you own webspace.
...you don't want to invest time to maintain and setup the application.
What Software is used and what do I need?
What we use...
Survey.php-friends.de is hosting LimeSurvey and gives you access via a personal account where you can create and manage your surveys.
Limesurvey is the leading Open Source Online Survey Tool written in PHP. The software allows you to develop, publish and collect automatically responses to surveys. It includes a wide range of built-in question types, and a range of flexible options. For analysis, basic statistical methods are already implemented. Your collected results can be exported in different file formats: R, SPSS, Excel, xml, etc. Surveys can be public, or can be strictly controlled through the use of once-only tokens for each survey participant.
.... and what you need:
That depends on your usage scenario:
- you might be happy with the built-in basic statistic analysis features. -> no further software is needed
- you might want to make a more complex analysis -> you need some kind of table-calculation program: like MS Excel, OpenOffice Calc, etc
- you might want to make a professional, really complex, advanced analysis -> use the Statistics Software of your Choice: R, Spss, G-Power etc
How can this freely accessible and fully unlimited Limesurvey be used ?

Is there a difference between using survey.php-friends.de and hosting it on my own?
There's no big difference between using this service or running it on your own webspace:
All features of the survey creation, editing and analysis incl. data download are the same!
However there are some restrictions (that won't affect you much):
As you might see on screenshots on limesurvey.org your user account has no admin settings:
You cant change the main template (removing survey.php-friends.de from footer)
You cant access data of other users, only the data of your own surveys
Because false settings would affect all other users and might lead to malfunction or data loss.
I need Help! Where can i learn how to use limesurvey for my own project?
First of all we recommend to visit the Tutorials Tab:
