Installing Sugar CRM community Amazon EC2

This is pretty simple and I will have to be doing it quite a lot in the next coming months, so this is more an aide de memoire

The community edition URL

It is presumed that you already have a server with Apache and PHP installed. If not you need to yum apache and php.

yum install httpd php php-mysql mysql

At the time of writing we were looking at the RC2 release (brave I know 🙂 )

cd ~

mkdir software

cd software



mv SugarCE-Full-6.5.0RC2 /var/www/html/sugar65ce

I create this link so the URL can stay the same irrespective of the version

ln -s /var/www/html/sugar65ce/ crmcom

chown -R apache:apache sugar65ce/

cd sugar65ce

chmod 766 config.php

chmod 766 custom/

Web browse to the domian

Take all the default options, because of the chmod above you should get no errors 🙂

Provide all the database details when prompted ( I personally have called the database sugarcrm_com and we are also a professional user of CRM)

*    *    *    *    *     cd /var/www/html/sugar65ce; php -f cron.php > /dev/null 2>&1
