Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I really like the application Things but I need something web-based. Ideally something I can host on my server. So simply, PHP/MySQl based task-management software, which is open-source.

What would be ideal would be something where I can drag and drop to reorder the tasks.

Any suggestions?

A rails offering: Tracks. Host it on your own server (or PC). I've used it in the past and liked it.

Tracks is a web-based application to help you implement David Allen’s Getting Things Done™ methodology. It was built using Ruby on Rails, and comes with a built-in webserver (WEBrick), so that you can run it on your own computer if you like. It can be run on any platform on which Ruby can be installed, including Mac OS X, Windows XP and Linux. Tracks is Open Source, free and licensed under the GNU GPL.

I use Tasks Pro, because it has a good interface, but unfortunately it does not provide a drag and drop feature.

To drag and drop tasks (and a nice clean interface), I recommend Todoist, which unfortunately is not open source, and not self-hosted.

We've been happily using NetOffice for several years now and although it's intended for working on projects as a group, when compared to the Things feature list it can do most of those things and then some, with exception to iCal/iPhone sync.

Not something you can put on your own server, nor even open source, but Trello is very good for this kind of thing.

Wunderlist is somehow similar to Things, but it offers a web version as well. Not open source or self-hosted thou.

You can also use Google Tasks. That is such a nice tool to manage your daily tasks.

Log in to your Gmail account and you'll see a link to Tasks under Mail and Contacts links, on the left side.
