Wink Open Source IT Form


Hi there - I need some advise on possibly deploying a solution where users can fill out forms and such via web. For now I'd like this to be internal only to my organization. Some samples that I'd like to achieve are IT form for loaner laptops, IT form for check out equipment and IT form for New Hires/Terminations. Please kindly advise. Cheers - DB

Well, this sounds like a classic LAMP (Linux, apache, MySQL, PHP) install.
You should be able to do it all from your distro's repos, but you'll have to write the PHP code for the app.
Do you have a particular distro in mind?

I have Ubuntu server in mind and yes I do agree on the path of LAMP stack but just curious on how I can achieve the "web form" piece? I dont think I can write up a php from scratch but can you advise on an easy way to deploy? I know how to build a LAMP server but from there where Im stuck. I just need some sort of template I guess that I could use as a web form then I'll customize myself moving forward on other forms I need...Also this web form once users are done filling it out will have an option to email to the IT helpdesk. Cheers - DB

Well, lets clarify; (as a SysAdmin) I took 'deploy' to mean installing/setting up the core SW components (as mentioned) and getting them to talk to each other.
Basically if you install the things I mentioned and ensure you include the php-mysql pkg (enables php to talk to MySQL), you should be good to go.

Nonetheless, unless you can find a pre-written app that provides what you want, you (or someone) will have to write that app in php to generate interactive (ie CGI) php forms.

Hope that helps ...
