ERP5 is used for mission critical ERP / CRM / MRP / SCM / PDM applications




ERP5 is a full featured high end Open Source / Libre Software solution published under GPL license and used for mission critical ERP / CRM / MRP / SCM / PDM applications by industrial organizations and government agencies.

ERP5 preferred installation method is a LiveCD which is able to store all persistent data on a hard disk. Thanks to ERP5Live CD, implementing ERP5 at a distant location with little or no Linux skills is not an issue any longer. ERP5 also saves 1 day of precious engineer time by reducing the installation time to 1 minute, thus providing more time for application setup and customization.

Basic setup with the newest version of ERP5 and business templates:

1. Get the lastest LiveCD ISO, burn the image
2. Read the README file on the CD for basic Linux/Windows setup instructions.
3. Boot from the CD; you will find your erp5cd directory under /mnt/storage. Then login as root using password "erp5root".
4. Go to the /var/lib/zope/Products directory and checkout latest version of ERP5 by using the script.
4.1 Only for LiveCD prior to version 1.0rc8: Replace a file /var/lib/zope/Extensions/ with a symlink to /var/lib/zope/Products/ERP5/Extensions/
5. Restart zope
6. Create a new ERP5 Site, name it whatever you wish. When creating a site, you'll be asked if you want to use CMFActivity. Select "I'm new to ERP5 so I'll use it later" (else you need to setup a custom zope_tic_loop script). {X} This will soon be obsolete thanks to TimerService integration. If you run a livecd version >= 1.0rc8, you can safely select "I know it and I want to use it"
7. Select Manage Business Templates from My Favorites menu ( or go to localhost/your_new_erp5_site/portal_templates )
8. Install any desired business template following HowToInstallBusinessTemplates
