vtiger Installation On CentOS 5.x

vtiger is the CRM / complete tracking solution I have looked for and needed for 10 years!!! An all-in-one tracking everything organic package that ties everything together - because every task has many things associated with it, and vtiger works the way people think.

I will install vtiger in the /var/www/html/vtigercrm directory on a CentOS 5.x (i386) system where /var/www/html is the document root of the web site where I install vtiger.

vtiger can be installed as follows:

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

yum install php-mysql php-gd php-imap php-ldap php-odbc php-pear php-xml php-xmlrpc php-mapserver php-mbstring php-mcrypt php-mssql php-snmp php-soap php-tidy phpmyadmin mysql mysql-server httpd libpng libpng-devel libjpeg libjpeg-devel freetype freetype-devel zlib xFree86-dev openssl openssl-devel krb5-devel imap-2004d

php.ini configuration:

Variable Value
allow_call_time_pass_reference on
error_reporting E_WARNING & ~E_NOTICE
safe_mode off
display_errors on
file_uploads on
max_execution_time 600
memory_limit 64M
log_errors off
output_buffering on
register_globals off
short_open_tag on

wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/vtigercrm/files/vtiger%20CRM%205.1.0/vtigercrm-5.1.0.tar.gz

tar -xvzf vtigercrm-5.1.0.tar.gz

chmod -R a+rw /var/www/html/vtigercrm

Thank you for instructions.

But in my opinion, this command (chmod -R a+rw /var/www/html/vtigercrm) results a security gap, because it makes all folders to 777 and files 666. This means all folders world writable.
