Hello friends,

yet another CRM install howto:


Install packages needes for SugarCRM to work, may be done via Software Center too:

Get the mysql root password for later use:

PHP configuration

Set UploadMaxFilesize to a minimum of 7 MB, a value less than 7 makes SugarCRM complain about it…

config setprop php UploadMaxFilesize 7M
signal-event nethserver-php-update
systemctl restart httpd

Add a cronjob

You have to add a cronjob to run the Sugar schedulers. This may be done via command line or web UI with crontab manager.

command line style:

echo "* * * * * root cd /var/www/html/sugarcrm; php -f cron.php > /dev/null 2>&1" > /etc/cron.d/sugarcrm

Super cool, is it compatible with 6.9 or 7.3 or both?

Just tried with 7.3…
But it should be compatible because it just runs next to Nethserver at the moment and just php and mysql needed…when I manage to test it, I’ll give you report…
