Clear OS – SugarCRM Removal

How To Remove SugarCRM from ClearOS

I’m not going to show how to put SugarCRM on ClearOS because there are a lot of guides out there how to do that. I’m going to show how to take it off. Here’s how to do that. This is more of a theory guide than a step by step how to.

Theoretical Step 1 – Putty/SSH into the Clear OS and remove the SugarCRM files. Mine were under /var/www/html/sugarcrm/CRM. You may have put them under a Virtual directory or something. Here are a few commands to keep in mind:

Remove a directory – rm or rmdir

Remove a directory that isn’t empty – rm -rf [directory]
(Careful with this command)

Theoretical Step 2 – Remove the database. I show in the video how to do this with whatever version of phpMyAdmin comes prepackaged. It may vary on your version a little, I know most versions I’ve used don’t look exactly like what is on this server. You could also log into the server with Putty and fire up mysql. Since you’re probably using a root user and hopefully your root password is different in mysql you’ll need to do this:

Log into MySQL – mysql -u root -p
(It will ask for the MySQL root password when you hit enter)

Drop the sugarCRM database – DROP DATABASE sugarcrm;

Show databases  РSHOW databases;

That should remove SugarCRM pretty easily. To put it on was basically the reverse of that. Create a blank database called “sugarcrm”. Unzip the SugarCRM files into the /www/html/sugarcrm folder. Then follow the instructions for the initial setup.
