We've set up a phplist demo install (which sends no email) to let everybody test the connector more extensively.
It's online here http://demo.vtigersolutions.com/phplist/admin/
(admin/phplist user and pass)
and is synced with this vtiger
we're very happy to announce the availability, on vtiger forge, of the release 1.0rc of the phplistsync extension. This component, originally developed by Linprofs, has been first ported to vtiger 5.1 and finally completely rewritten as a vtiger extension module by vtiger.solutions team.
We're very proud and happy to offer the new version of the plugin to the community of vtiger users and developers, who will as usual provide feedback, suggestions and fixes.
phplist is an opensource email marketing software, written in php and mysql. it is one of the leaders of the massmail / newsletter market.
The plugin, whose primary function is to sync a vtiger custom view (from Leads or Contacts module) to a phplist newsletter, uses a db level connection to exchange information between the two applications, so they actually need to be on the same machine.
Future releases may include webservices support.
Moreover, current state of the art is that the plugin is simply sending vtiger filters emails to phplist, to populate one or more newsletters lists. It does not (not yet at least Wink send data back from phplist to inform vtiger about the state of the email being sent.
This extension module provides a connector between vtiger CRM and phplist (http://www.phplist.com/). So, you must have installed and configured both vtiger AND phplist to use the connector. Moreover, the way the connector currently works implies that vtiger and phplist are installed on the same machine.
Make sure your phplist is up and running, and you have an admin user on the same. Once you've installed the extension module, you'll need to set it up, specifing the phplist configuration file complete path. Phlist configuration file is called config.php and is located in the config folder inside your main phplist installation directory.
