TurnKey SugarCRM Live CD
TurnKey SugarCRM Live CD is an open source Linux distribution that provides users with an easy-to-use and handy appliance for deploying dedicated SugarCRM servers. It based on the stable and reliable Debian GNU/Linux operating system and comes with all the latest web technologies, such as Apache, MySQL, Postfix, phpMyAdmin and PHP.
SugarCRM is an open source Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform for business and social needs. The appliance includes upstream SugarCRM configurations that are installed by default in /var/www/sugarcrm, and support for secure connections using the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) specification.
In addition, it features the phpMyAdmin web application for administering the MySQL database server, the Postfix MTA (Mail Transfer Agent) for sending email messages to users, such as password recovery, and various Webmin modules for the configuration of the Apache, Postfix, MySQL and PHP components.
While the default username for the Webmin, SSH, phpMyAdmin and MySQL software is root, the default SugarCRM username is admin. Users can set up passwords for the root (system administrator) account, as well as the MySQL 'root' account during the first boot configuration process. In addition, they will be able to initialize the TurnKey hub services, such as Domain Management, Migration, Backup and Dynamic DNS.
This TurnKey appliance is distributed as two Live CD ISO images, one for each of the supported architectures, as well as ready-to-use virtual images in the Xen, OpenStack, OVF, OpenNode and OpenVZ formats. Both 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (amd64) architectures are supported at this time.
The installation process is text-based and requires users to partition the disks and install the boot loader. At the end of the installation process, it will display the active services and their IP addresses/ports. so don't forget to write them down on a piece of paper.
The server can be easily restarted or shutdown using the TurnKey Linux Configuration Console, which also allows users to set up the network interfaces.
