Installation instructions

OroCRM uses Composer to manage package dependencies, this is the a recommended way to install OroCRM.

  • If you don’t have Composer yet, download it and follow the instructions on or just run the following command:
curl -s | php
git clone
  • Make sure that you have NodeJS installed

  • Install OroCRM dependencies with composer. If installation process seems too slow you can use “–prefer-dist” option. Go to crm-application folder and run composer installation:

php composer.phar install --prefer-dist --no-dev
  • Create the database with the name specified on previous step (default name is “oro_crm”).

  • Install application and admin user with Installation Wizard by opening install.php in the browser or from CLI:

php app/console oro:install --env prod
  • Enable WebSockets messaging
php app/console clank:server --env prod
  • Configure crontab or scheduled tasks execution to run command below every minute:
php app/console oro:cron --env prod

Note: app/console is a path from project root folder. Please make sure you are using full path for crontab configuration or if you running console command from other location.

Installation notes

Installed PHP Accelerators must be compatible with Symfony and Doctrine (support DOCBLOCKs).

Note that the port used in Websocket must be open in firewall for outgoing/incoming connections

Using MySQL 5.6 on HDD is potentially risky because of performance issues.

Recommended configuration for this case:

innodb_file_per_table = 0

And ensure that timeout has default value

wait_timeout = 28800
