Error while setting up 7.9.5

Hi guys,

I decided to try out SuiteCRM 7.9.5 with a fresh installation. I’m currently using webhosting(PHP 7.1) and uploaded the SuiteCRM files to a subfolder on the server.

After handing out the required permissions i went for setup and got this below mentioned error after accepting terms and proceeding - i cant really decode it with my current web skills - sadly.

please note “” is just fictive in this case.

Warning: exec() has been disabled for security reasons in /customers/a/a/b/ on line 413 Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function posix_getpwuid() in /customers/a/a/b/ Stack trace: #0 /customers/a/a/b/ getRunningUser() #1 /customers/a/a/b/ require(’/customers/a/a/…’) #2 {main} thrown in /customers/a/a/b/ on line 420


I wrote that line of code that is failing… : - )

I am assuming your hosting is in Linux.

It seems your hosting has a doubly-restrictive policy that is keeping SuiteCRM from determining which OS user it’s running under.

You can comment out those two lines, finish your installation, and then manually configure cron_allowed_users in config.php.

Maybe you can simply ask your hosting to turn on POSIX functions, or “exec” statement. But I’m afraid they will refuse to.
