Cloning SugarCRM

Step 1: Clone the sugarcrm Directory

There is a script "", see script also in bottom.
Running the Script, remember you have to provide the paths both source directory and clone directory.

root@imran:~# ./sugarclone
Missing First Argument:
Syntax: /var/www/html/FROM_SUGAR_DIR /var/www/html/TO_SUGAR_DIR
exited with status -1

root@imran:~# ./sugarclone /var/www/sugar /var/www/clone
Compressing /var/www/sugar Sugar and saving to /home/imran/sugarFilesFromBackup201001111322.tgz
Compressing /var/www/clone Sugar and saving to /home/imran/sugarFilesToBackup201001111322.tgz
tar: Cowardly refusing to create an empty archive
Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information.
Extracting the /var/www/sugar Sugar tgz to /var/www/clone Sugar directory
Script complete.

Step2: Clone the Database

Create a new database for Cloning e.g clone
Export the sugarcrm database using PHPMyAdmin tool e.g sugarcrm.sql
Import the sugarcrm.sql data into clone database.

root@imran:/srv/mysql# mysql -u root -p
Enter password:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 15595
Server version: 5.1.37-1ubuntu5 (Ubuntu)
Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

# insert the path to your production directory here to ensure nobody copies to it by mistake

echo -e "\nCan't copy to production ($blockdirprefix) without third parameter of \"iamsure\""

if [ "$exitcode" -lt "0" ]
echo -e "Syntax: /var/www/html/FROM_SUGAR_DIR /var/www/html/TO_SUGAR_DIR\nexited with status $exitcode\n"
exit $exitcode;
elif [ "$exitcode" -gt "0" ]
echo -e "The first parameter should be the sugar directory you are copying from."
echo -e "The second parameter should be the sugar directory you are copying to."
echo -e "\nThis script will skip the following directories and files:"
echo -e "./cache\n./custom\n./config.php\n./config_override.php\n./*.log*"
exit $exitcode;

date=$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M);

# Backing up the from sugar directory and saving to the user's home directory
echo -e "\nCompressing $1 Sugar and saving to $HOME/sugarFilesFromBackup$date.tgz\n"
cd "$1"
filelist=$(find . -maxdepth 1 ! -name "." ! -name "cache" ! -name "custom" ! -name "config.php" ! -name "config_override.php" ! -name "*.log*" -exec echo "{}" \;)

# Extracting the from sugar directory to the to sugar directory
echo -e "\nExtracting the $1 Sugar tgz to $2 Sugar directory\n"
cp $HOME/sugarFilesFromBackup$date.tgz "$2"
cd "$2"
tarcommand="tar xf ./sugarFilesFromBackup$date.tgz"

SugarCRM Changing Max file Upload Limit

In sugar while uploading a file as attachment to e.g Marketing->Accounts->youraccount->Create Note or Attachment.
I tried to upload a file size 20M, it did not attached and no error message as well. Here is to fix this.After doing the following changes, performance of site also improves.

Step 1: Change in SugarCRM
Go to Admin->System Settings->Advanced
change Maximum upload size e.g 41943040 (40M) default was 3000000 (3M)

Step 2: Change in php.ini file
Login to your server hosting the site,
Go to /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini and change the following, Max, limit 40M

       post_max_size = 40M
upload_max_size = 40M

max_execution_time = 1000
max_input_time = 60
memory_limit = 128M

imran@venus:/var/www/sugar$ sudo nano /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

; Resource Limits ;

max_execution_time = 100 ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds, 30s default
max_input_time = 60 ; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data
;max_input_nesting_level = 64 ; Maximum input variable nesting level
memory_limit = 128M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (16MB), change to 50M, 50M defau$

; Data Handling ;

; Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept, 8M default
post_max_size = 40M

; File Uploads ;

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files. change sizd 2M to 10M, 10M default
upload_max_filesize = 40M

Save the file and exit.

Step 3: Restart the apache2 web server
imran@venus:/var/www/sugar$ sudo nano /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

Step 4: Test the upload Limit
Go to Marketing->Accounts->youraccount->Create Note or Attachment.
and attach a file e.g 20 M, it should be attached now.
