Adding new user problems. HELP

Debian 7 /32bit, SuiteCRM 7.1.2, PHP 5.4.4-14, Apache2 2.2.22-13.

I add a new user to the CRM, login as newuser and I get the CRM startpage with no Desktop Dashlets. When I go to Add Dashlets, nothing happens.

Also, the Wizard ALWAYS runs when the new users login. Unless I edit their account as Admin and uncheck the Wizard.

Ran a Quick Repair as Admin

Reset all perms and ownership in the crm directory…

Tried IE10, IE11, Chrome, FireFox and PaleMoon. Cleared all caches and re-logged in.

Homepage is still empty.

This all happened after the upgrade from 7.0.2 to 7.1.2.

Ok… Something strange is going on. On my TEST server, I copied the install and mysql over from the broken system. Everything works on the test system.

The ONLY difference between the two is an SSL cert and https access on the broken one. Is there a know issue with SSL/HTTPS and SuiteCRM?

Ok… SuiteCRM > 7.0.2 needs CURL and PHP5-CURL to function properly. These were NOT installed on our live system but were on the test system.

Installing these packages got the home page working properly for new users now.
