Step 2 Initiate SuiteCRM Installation

There are a few options that you have for the new SuiteCRM installation on your account. They allow you full control over the new installation and we will review the all so you can get a better understanding of the process. There are three main sections with available options and the first one is the Software Setup. It allows you to edit:


  • Choose Protocol: Choose the protocol to be set on your website. NOTE: Do you choose the secured https protocol if you do not have an SSL certificate installed for your domain. This is a paid service you can get via your Client Area.
  • Choose Domain: Select the domain you will use for your new SuiteCRM installation. If you have any addon or subdomains on your account, you will be able to select them from here.
  • In Directory: This option allows you to install the application in a subfolder of your account. If you wish to install it directly on your domain, simply leave this field blank.
  • Database Name: Enter the name of the database to be used for your new installation. The system will automatically create it for you.
