About phpList

phpList is an open source newsletter manager.

About this package

This module is the REST API for phpList 4, providing functions for superusers to manage lists, subscribers and subscriptions via REST calls. It uses functionality from the phplist/core module (the phpList 4 core). It does not contain any SQL queries, uses functionality from the new core for DB access.

This module is optional, i.e., it is possible to run phpList 4 without the REST API.

This new REST API can also be used to provide REST access to an existing phpList 3 installation. For this, the phpList 3 installation and the phpList 4 installation with the REST API need to share the same database. For security reasons, the REST APIs from phpList 3 and phpList 4 should not be used for the same database in parallel, though.


Please install this package via Composer from within the phpList base distribution, which also has more detailed installation instructions in the README.
