How to install sugarCRM on dreamhost server

 

SugarCRM is a powerful open source CRM system. It’s easy to install on Dreamhost, for the default setup without IMAP just follow their instructions.

  1. Set up a new domain, subdomain, or folder for Sugar (done through Dreamhost GUI). For this demo, use “sugarcrm.yourDomain.com”.
  2. Set up a new MySQL database in Dreamhost Panel.
  3. Test DB connection from command line to ensure Dreamhost set it up properly (e.g. “mysql -u rootUser -p -h sugarcrm.crm.yourDomain.com sugarMysql_db”)
  4. Download the latest Community edition, and unzip into a folder that is NOT under /home/yourUserName/site.domain.com folder.) Note: if there is anything in the site.domain.com folder, your script will fail.
  5. Set file and directory permissions according to Required File System Permissions on Linux
  6. run file (preferably in a location like /home/yourUserName/files). Type ‘./download’ to start the process and answer the wizard questions: ENTER (to accept license), Y (install SugarCRM), Y (to install PhpMyAdmin), then enter in your folder (e.g. /home/yourUserName/sugarcrm.yourDomain.com), 1 (to accept typical install).
  7. Modify “/home/yourUserName/sugarcrm.yourDomain.com/apps/sugarcrm/htdocs/config_si.php” to reflect the DB config that you made.
  8. Wizard will display a screen bar across the screen as it installs. Will take about 2 minutes.
  9. From your web browser, navigate to your Sugar folder to continue the setup process. By default, this will likely look something like “http://sugarcrm.yoursite.com:8080/sugarcrm“. There you will get a wizard that will give you initial startup questions.
