SugarCRM FastStack Installers for OpenSolaris

In case you have not noticed SugarCRM has been available for Solaris both SPARC and Intel platforms as FastStack Installers for quite sometime now. These installers are so easy to install. In just few minutes you can start using SugarCRM without worrying about the details of web server and database.

These installers are primarily available for Solaris. If you want to use the same binaries to install on OpenSolaris you would have to make a few minor changes so that the installation goes smoothly.

Before we get started here's the link to the SugarCRM installers for Solaris: http://www.sugarcrm.com/crm/download/sugar-suite.html

Installing SugarCRM on OpenSolaris

I have installed on OpenSolaris 2008.05 that you can download fromhttp://www.opensolaris.com/get/index.html


-bash-3.2# uname -a
SunOS vayuport-os 5.11 snv_86 i86pc i386 i86pc

-bash-3.2# cat /etc/release
          OpenSolaris 2008.05 snv_86_rc3 X86
Copyright 2008 Sun Microsystems, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
           Use is subject to license terms.
                Assembled 26 April 2008

Check if you have have mysql and webservd users defined on your system. Most likely they should already there.

-bash-3.2# cat /etc/passwd | egrep "webservd|mysql"
mysql:x:70:70:MySQL Reserved UID:/:
webservd:x:80:80:WebServer Reserved UID:/:


-bash-3.2# cat /etc/group | egrep "webservd|mysql"
mysql::70:
webservd::80:


In case you do not see the above output run the following commands to create the users and the groups.


-bash-3.2# groupadd -g 70 mysql
-bash-3.2# groupadd -g 80 webservd

-bash-3.2# useradd -c 'MySQL Reserve UID' -g 70 -u 70 mysql
-bash-3.2# useradd -c 'WebServer Reserve UID' -g 80 -u 80 webservd


If you do see the users please go ahead and add the following two privileges as shown below:

  • MySQL Administration

  • Apache 22 Administration


-bash-3.2# usermod -u 70 -P "MySQL Administration" mysql
-bash-3.2# usermod -u 80 -P "Apache 22 Administration" webservd


With that you are now ready to install SugarCRM using the FastStack installer:


-bash-3.2# /usr/sfw/bin/wget
http://www.sugarforge.org/frs/download.php/4394/sugarcrm-CE-5.0.0g-solaris-intel-installer.bin

-bash-3.2# chmod a+x sugarcrm-CE-5.0.0g-solaris-intel-installer.bin
-bash-3.2# ./sugarcrm-CE-5.0.0g-solaris-intel-installer.bin


If you select the typical install option during the installation. You should see the following two screens toward the end.
