Just for info : I went back to php 8.1 and double-checked permissions, the error 500 became a 304 and a beautiful blank screen welcomed me (index.php was written in the address bar)
I did as mentioned in the documentation :
Legacy config in public/legacy/config
if you don’t have your vhost pointing to the public dir within your SuiteCRM 8 root folder, you should append /public to your current host
e.g. if your address is something like https://your-host/crm/public,
There was an extra " / "
at the end of public.
I went back to the vhost configuration and deleted /public.
After restarting apache2, I entered by hand …/public/index.php and I have been able to log in
At the end of the day and as a feedback : It is a test configuration on a VM so it is not a big issue to have the root folders available for the public at the moment. But I truly need to figure out this rewrite / redirect rules.
At the same time, it took me something like 5 hours just to be able to log on . I must have missed something in the documentation but I don’t know what . (English is not my mother tongue, but I think I can read it easily…).
Time to experience this new version now.
Thanks to all the team behind the project.
My installation did not allow me to upload anything from document to module builders.
I decided to start again the installation of suitecrm 8.2 from the beginning.
Deleted Database and root folders.
I followed again the installation guide, decided to work under php7.4…
There is something unclear that I missed, about vhost maybe (4 hours that I am trying to find a way around) .
The /public directory send me a beautiful error 500…
And when I try to install by cli : I have an error
Upload File Size | error | Warning: Your PHP configuration should be changed to allow files of at least 6MB to be uploaded.
however my php info agrees with
/etc/php/7.4/cli/php.ini:846:upload_max_filesize = 200M
/etc/php/7.4/apache2/php.ini:846:upload_max_filesize = 200M
post-size is at 201M… .
I am truly lost. I love Suite CRM, I have a LTS version working for ages on a raspberry (ubuntu server) , but I do not understand how I am unable to install its 8.x.x version and make it run on a Ubuntu22.04 VM.
That’s make me mad. If somebody as a working tutorial from A to Z for suitecrm8.2 on Ubuntu 22.04, please help.
Regards and thx
