Vtiger CRM Open Source Version 6.0 Released

We’re pleased to announce the official launch of Vtiger CRM Open Source version 6.0.0, which was released for download on January 10th to much fanfare. We’d like to start by emphasizing that the release wouldn’t have been possible without all of you, our huge community of users, partners, and developers, for using the software in your businesses, scrutinizing your experiences, reviewing lines of code, pitching feature enhancements, reporting bugs, fixing bugs, and spreading the word – a gargantuan effort from which we all finally benefit starting today. Marking the 6th major open source release of Vtiger CRM in the 10 years that Vtiger has been around, and the most significant change to the software in its history, all of the bug fixes and new features that you’ve heard about come wrapped in a brand new interface. The interface is designed to bring the information that you frequently use to the foreground, to help you more quickly find other data, to work together with your colleagues, to accomplish tasks in fewer clicks, and to navigate from point a to point b more seamlessly. Functionally, you’ll find that everything works more smoothly, from data entry, to search, to navigation and beyond. When users or administrators get stuck, new documentation and video tutorials pages can be referenced to cover any gaps in knowledge. And underneath the hood developers will find a new, more modular code structure, with an accompanying community help site, which, combined, we hope will make customization and development a cinch. We’ve summarized a list of the major changes since 5.4 below. Please note that we’ll be pushing a 6.1 release in the coming months to add back in some less frequented CRM areas which still saw some demand, as well as to add in some major functional enhancements that we’ve been working on (see the summary release notes). For now, however – Enjoy, and Happy New Year!

Hello,

What is the recommended method of upgrading from 6.0RC to the final version?

Alex

Guest
maie
4 years 11 months ago

Maybe you can overwrite

Guest
Alex Makin
4 years 11 months ago

When overwriting the 6.0RC installation we are prompted with the initial setup wizard for vTiger 6.0 final. If we use our existing database will this work?

Guest
maie
4 years 11 months ago

I overwrite installation was successful. If overwrite config.inc.php file , the installation wizard will open. And looks reinstall does not update the database, but will overwrite the tag clound.

Guest
Alex Makin

Maie, thanks we retained config.inc.php from the RC version and overwrote the other files. Can confirm that the upgrade worked successfully.

How about migrating from vTiger 6.0 BETA version? What are recommended steps to do this?

Guest
maie

You can overwrite installation

Guest
Tym
4 years 11 months ago

Unfortunatelly this doesnt work. It seems to be fine, but a lot of features doesnt work. Compare databases, there is about 200 more tables in stable version.

Any idea how to migrate from Beta version to Stable?

Guest
maie

Vtiger official should not provide the upgrade of 6.0beta to the official version.

Guest
Tym
4 years 11 months ago

Yes, I am aware of that, thats why I need to figure out how t odo this.

Maybe there is some way to export all vTiger data and then import it into another instance?

Guest

Guest

It is also a solution, but users and other information should be the same as the original

I started working with vtiger just recently and really loved the UI. I found the workflow to be very intuitive and hoped to incorporate this into my service offerings.

I moved my accounts to a new VPS this week and found version 6, great I thought, until I installed. My new server has the latest version of php and as such vtiger is broken.

There is an unknown number of depreciated lines of php code that makes this best in class crm unusable. I can downgrade my php but before I do that I’m hoping to learn if and when vtiger will be updated to reflect current code standards. I have a couple of accounts already interested in vtiger but the idea that outdated php is the only way to make it work is a hard sell.

Does anyone have an idea regarding a fix or when the software will become compatible with current versions of php?

Guest

Mark, Vtiger 6.1, due later this year, will support PHP 5.4

Guest
Mark
4 years 10 months ago

Outstanding, now to decide on fixing my current install or downgrading my server. Lots of deprecated functions.

Hello,

We have noticed that in using the project tasks that the task is no longer automatically connected with the organisation of the project.

When attempting to choose the related to organisation we receive the error: Hander not found. This worked correctly in 6.0RC but the not final version.

Guest
maie
4 years 10 months ago

Haha, I think the project is useless, I feel build a kind of bug tracking system is more appropriate like vtiger trac.

Guest
Mark
4 years 10 months ago

I for one would also like to see a better project management. Still working on compatibility issues with v6 but 5.4 didn’t have subtasks. I’d like to nest tasks and assign dependencies.

Not all users are programmers. @Maie

Hi folks,

did you fix the problem that one organization (Apple i.e.) may have multi locations (San Francisco, Munich)?

Hi,

I cant seem to find the normal module search. For eg. if i want to quick search all the records with a certain Program Name(custom field) and lead status.

The only way i see to do that as of now, is to use advanced search, and then the records only show in popup, so working with the records is a problem. I can save as a custom view, but then i would have hundreds of custom views for all combinations of the 2 picklists.

Hello, if I want to do an upgrade from vTiger 6 RC to 6 Final, I get the following error:
Can not create table ‘# sql-d0195c30 541_5bc050.’ (Errno: 121)

I downloaded the Final, unpacked into the “6 RC” folder (overwritten) and emptied the config.ini.php. During the installation I get this error. Am I doing something wrong?

I have vTiger 5.2.1 running. Wanted to upgrade to 6.0 GA. First I did upgrade to 5.4.0 without any troubles – everything works fine. Then I’d used 540-600 patch to upgrade to 6.0. The process went fine, but in MyPreferences nothing works. I can’t change user details or even password. Is someone faced with such a problem?

Guest

This is a problem of File Permissions. The File Permissions of 5.4.0 are different from 6.0.

The database of migration 5.4.0 to 6.0 is different from a clean install of 6.0 aswell

Guest
netizen
4 years 10 months ago

Clean install of 6.0 works fine.
File permissions are www-data.www-data on both installations: clean 6.0 and upgraded 5.4 to 6.0
How can I fix that?

Hi everybody,

Waw, new vtiger is so great !!! I love it ! The user interface is much more modern and ergonomic.

Congratulations to all the developers !

However, I have to mention an issue with google contact sync :

When I synchronize my contacts, everything works but the update of fields from vtiger to google. Delete and new contacts are ok, but no way to make the update work in that direction.

Is there anybody who meets this problem ? It is quite annoying as only for this issue, I can’t use vtiger for the moment.

Thanks in advance for help or fix !
