SuiteCRM Installation Videos, Start to Finish Tutorial

Hi all.

First a disclaimer, this isn’t done and will take 2-3 weeks to finish. I don’t work for the SalesAgility/SugarCRM and I’m not a professional developer. Just someone who likes SuiteCRM and wants to do what I can do to make it successful. I have a job that has nothing to do with CRM.

I know many of you are new, That’s fine. We all had to start somewhere. I’m going to start at the beginning, and if you follow these instructions, you will have a fully functional SuiteCRM environment running under Ubuntu Server Linux. This will show the complete installation, start to finish, with nothing omitted. I’m going to be doing the install on Windows, with Virtualbox (Free), Ubuntu Linux 14.4 (Free), and SuiteCRM 7.1.1 (Free). I’ll assume you’re running windows with a recent Virtualbox, and have downloaded the most recent Ubuntu and SuiteCRM. If requested, I’d do a separate video for a shared-environment.

Let me know what you like and you don’t, and how this can be improved going forward.

A) Running on a Windows PC
B) Download virtualbox (Free Virtualization software, now from Oracle)
C) Download Ubuntu Server (Free Linux operating system) - in this video 14.4
D) Download SuiteCRM - in this video 7.1.1

I didn’t need it, but I wish I’d had this when I was going through my install. I love these kinds of videos, keep up the good work!
