IMPORTANT NOTE: I'm keeping this page here for historical reasons, along with the tarballs for the last released version of Anthill. This used to be available at (defunct) and as such I wanted to keep a copy of that stuff here.

Anthill is a PHP-based bug tracking system. It is no longer in active development. Because it is released under the GPL license, you may download and modify the code to your heart's content. Anthill will not be developed by myself anytime in the near future. As a result, the demo and bug reporting facilities have been shut down and all that is available is for you to download the code. As well, the mailing lists have been shut down as well.

Because Anthill is no longer in active development, there will be no further releases, neither bugfix nor (if it were warranted) security fixes. For that reason, unless you intend to develop Anthill on your own and/or have some skills in PHP code, you may wish to find an alternative tracker. Of course, having said that, it is my opinion that Anthill is essentially feature-complete for the things it was originally designed to do.


You can download Anthill from our website:

To install, simply untar the file into a temporary location. If upgrading, please be aware that the filesystem layout has changed in 0.2.4 to provide better security so you cannot blindly copy files into your web tree. Read the README.html documentation in the archive for all of the installation instructions.

Anthill requires a working MySQL or PostgreSQL database that you have access to, PHP4, and a web server like Apache. It has not been tested with PHP5.

I'd like to thank Zend for their assistance in a reduced price to purchase the Zend Development Environment, an excellent PHP IDE. I'd also like to thank the few people who had made donations to the project.
