Recommended to use PHP 8.1 or greater.

Yap requires MySQL 5.7 or greater and an Apache-based webserver with mod_rewrite enabled.

The purposes of yap are :

  • To be able to take the results of a BMLT root server and play it back through the telephone.
  • To be able to set up routing rules for zip codes and helpline numbers with optional extension dialing.
  • To be able to set up volunteer schedules and associated rules to answer calls.

We are taking advantage of using Twilio which essentially handles all the VOIP parts. You provision a number, set up an application, and point it your PHP server.
