I noticed on the BitNami blog that there is (Beta) software to manage the servers with a graphical interface. https://bitnami.com/article/managing-your-servers-with-the-new-graphical-interface-beta

I would love to be able to turn off the servers for the SugarCRM stack when they are not in use, as they take a lot of resources. However I did not see that software included in the stack. As an osX user I would be able to use it. Perhaps someone could be kind enough to tell me how I can download just that individual application.

Alternatively, I would be very grateful if someone would write out the command I could use to paste into Terminal that would do the same thing.

Thank you.

Hi,

It seems that the Graphical Interface is not included in the SugarCRM Stack but it is included in the MAMPStack. You can install the MAMPStack and then install de SugarCRM module. You can also start/stop the server in the Terminal:

$ cd <installation_directory>
$ ./ctlscript.sh

and you can see something to this:


usage: ./ctlscript.sh help
       ./ctlscript.sh (start|stop|restart|status)
       ./ctlscript.sh (start|stop|restart|status) mysql
       ./ctlscript.sh (start|stop|restart|status) apache
help       - this screen
start      - start the service(s)
stop       - stop  the service(s)
restart    - restart or start the service(s)
status     - show the status of the service(s)

I hope it helps.

A tip. If you have configured SugarCRM and you do not want to reinstall it. You can install the mampstack in other directory and then copy the <mampstack_installation_directory>/control.app to the SugarCRM installation directory and you have the graphical interface for your SugarCRM.

I tried your advise from your tip beltran. I installed the MAMP stack and copied the control.app to the SugarCRM installation. Then, thinking that all was well, I uninstalled the MAMP stack. While the copy of control.app remained, it no longer functioned (there was no listing of servers to start or stop). It seems it was pre-configured to work only with that setup. Or, when it uninstalled the MAMP stack it uninstalled part of the SugarCRM stack too.

My next try is uninstall the SugarCRM stack and re-install the MAMPstack with the SugarCRM module. However, I have not been able to spot the SugarCRM module on the BitNami site, only the SugarCRM Stack.

Can you please post the link for the module.

Hi,

Sorry about the tip is not working for you. I will check this issue. You can download the SugarCRM module from the same page: https://bitnami.com/stack/sugarcrm

Cheers.

Hi DMH,

There is a ctlscript.sh file located at control.app/Contents/MacOs in where you will need to change the INSTALLDIR variable to point to your current installation. When you copied control.app to the SugarCRM Stack folder, the graphical control panel was still managing your MAMPStack installation. Therefore, removing MAMPStack made the control application fail to find any suitable server to be controled.

Cheers
