Open311 Simple CRM
Open311 Simple CRM is a basic open source web application for storing problem reports and tracking requests. It also provides an Open311 API endpoint and should accept any report submitted over the Open311 API.
Open311 Simple CRM is written in PHP using the CodeIgniter framework. You should find it easy to install provided you have access to a webserver and a database.
The code generally expects to be running under an Apache webserver with a mySQL database. It may be possible change these things if your system is different -- see the installation documentation:
Installation instructions: see
If you're familiar with PHP CodeIgniter (or possibly just PHP!) you might be
able to get things going just by dropping the repository somewhere under your
server root. (In fact, for a super quickstart, set up your webserver so that
web/ is the server root).
The Open311 Simple CRM root page will provide diagnostics even if you've not got the database running, so try hitting that as soon as you get going.
Remember to see
documentation/INSTALL.md for details. If the home page seems
OK, try clicking on Main site and logging in as the default out-of-the-box
You must to change these values as soon as you're logged in! The root page will tell you how (until you've done it).
The original Open311 implementation code is nearly all from Philip Ashlock's raw implementation of Open311 GeoReport v2 while additional features have been developed by mySociety under the name FMS-endpoint.

Setup docker containers.
$ docker-compose up
Setup the schema needed by the application in the database
$ cat db/fms-endpoint-initial.sql | docker container exec -i $(docker-compose ps -q db) mysql -uroot -pmysql-dev-password crm
Run the migrations (note: you will see PHP "errors", but they're all just notices)
$ docker-compose exec app php index.php migrate
Open your browser to localhost:8000.
At this point you should see a prompt from Open311 to adjust the admin's email address, and change the organization name. Let's do that:
$ docker-compose exec db mysql -uroot -pmysql-dev-password crm mysql> update users set email="yourname@yourdomain" where username="administrator"; mysql> update config_settings set value="yourorgname" where name="organisation_name";
Reload localhost:8000 and you should see green text indicating that Open311 is enabled.
Updating composer dependencies
Edit version constraints in composer.json.
$ docker-compose exec app composer update
Commit the updated composer.json and composer.lock.
