    Is there any additional configuration in the server to receive mails from other smtp server? like gmail?

    Dear Matei, I’m newbie in Linux and I already follow your step until point 4, but can’t view the main page (install pages) of http://localhost/sugarcrm.

    The browser error message is ‘Forbidden You don’t have permission to access /sugarcrm/ on this server.’

    Please help me to advice about this problem and thanks for the help.

      Looks like you’ve installed SugarCRM on a different location than /var/www/html path. Your location according to URL you’ve provided should be /var/www/html/sugarcrm directory. For troubleshooting purposes make sure you disable Selinux and add the correct permissions starting with point 9 by navigating to your SugarCRM webroot absolute path:
      cd /var/www/html/sugarcrm/

      Also, run a tailf against apache error file to get a live feedback on what errors can cause the issue.

      Other approach would be to just copy the SugarCRM installation files from /var/www/htm/sugarcrm/ directory to one level back into the hierarchy (/var/www/htm/) and apply permissions according to this guide.

      cd /var/www/hml/
      cp -Rp sugarcrm/* ./

    Try suiteCRM, it’s a very nice fork of sugar.
