Trouble following installation manual during step 5.2

Hi everyone,
first post here :slight_smile:

I have some experiences with Suite/Sugar and would like to test SpiceCRM which looks very interesting.
Therefore, I tried to install everything on localhost by following this manual:
SpiceCRM_UI_installation_guide_201901001.pdf (may not link it, otherwise I cant submit my post)

Frontend is copied to
And Backend to

During step 5.2 (Load default UI configuration) I found a problem:

  • I did a quick repair+rebuild (even with emptied cache, two different browsers)
    • result: “Done Database tables are synced with vardefs”

Seems fine!

But, during step 5.2, when I try to load the default UI configuration and click on “yes”:

the result is:


I tested (as described in the manual) the following request:
which returned the shown json.

additionally, the manual states that should be accessible - it is not (tested with mobile internet as well).

Is the manual outdated, or did I some mistakes here? Can I skip this step and continue the installation?

Thanks for your help!

E: I’ve added column “icon” to the mentioned table (error message shown), now another table scheme is wrong…there has to be some kind of issue.

Ok, I did install a second (older) Mysql server. Could continue, issue was caused by the mariadb-version.

I am not sure it was the MariaDBVersion.
We fixed a bug the data retrieved by on wednesday night.
The table structure retrieved was not from the proper source.
Just to make, which MariaDBVersion did you install first?

thanks for your reply!

It’s working now with:

λ mysql --version
mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.7.29, for Win32 (AMD64)

The first try was using:

λ mysql --version
mysql  Ver 15.1 Distrib 10.1.37-MariaDB, for Win32 (AMD64)

usually I wouldn’t use windows as OS, but it was easier for just having a look.

Btw: Am I understanding correctly that the elastic search indexing has to run permanently to update the content of the ListViews?

thanks again & have a nice weekend!

ElasticServer shall remain active yes.
To trigger indexing of non indexed data & clean up indexed deleted data please, activate the Scheduler Job “SPICE FullTextSearch index”.
