This is the first time I have ever used Linux and the learning curve is harsh.
I am running ubuntu Server within a virtual instance using Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008 R2. I have installed LAMP and can SSH into the box.
I have followed this guide to create 3 test scripts: http://ubuntuserverguide.com/2014/06/how-to-install-lamp-in-ubuntu-server-14-04-lts.html
[ol] [li][ul]apache is up and running[/li]
[li]PHP is running[/li]
[li]PHP can login to mySQL successfully[/li][/ul][/ol](I had problems with this using “root” and had to go into mysql and create a new user and password and was able to make it work using that new user, I think this is fine for now… accessing the mysql -u root -p allows me to log into the mysql)
I think I have correctly extracted SuiteCRM 7.2.1 max to the C: drive in the directory /SuiteCRM… (When I go to my login, and sudo -i, I get root@machinename:, From there if I cd /SuiteCRM I get the full 7.2.1 max install contents (I was able to install vsftpd to extract the zip to a home drive and move the files with server commands, so I think that is done correctly))
This is where I have become totally stuck. My test files were all in the location /var/www/html/XXXXX.php so it seems that the http connections naturally find them.
I cannot figure out how to reference apache to use the /SuiteCRM directory for http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/SuiteCRM/install.php or how apply ownership permissions.
Following the instuction on https://suitecrm.com/wiki/index.php/Installation to ‘4. Set ownership of the SuiteCRM directory:’ gives the following error:
chgrp: invalid group: ‘ApacheUser.ApacheGoup’ I am sure these are just references for the user name of my apache install and my group name, but I cannot find or guess those successfully. I think they may be in the apache2.conf file, but I have decided to ask for help… lots of time spent to get this far.
