CiviCRM Installation Notes
CiviCRM is installed in our main hosting order, under the subdirectory "crew/".
We're using the drupal version of civicrm, since drupal civi has some useful plugins for political organizations. Drupal was installed via the mf/pl control panel.
crew is under git source control. ~/masspirates.org/include/git/crew.git is a bare repository, and the master copy.
drush pm-download zen drush pm-enable zen
I haven't done any theme customization yet.
Additional modules installed
Installed civicrm, according to instructions at http://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/Drupal+Installation+Guide+for+CiviCRM+4.5+-+Drupal+7
Intially, I configured civicrm to use a dedicated database. Later, I discovered that certain things are easier if civicrm uses the same database as drupal itself. I mysqldumped civicrm's database and loaded it into crew's drupal database, and changed civi's configuration file accordingly.
Configuration checklist: https://masspirates.org/crew/civicrm/admin/configtask
Installer URL: https://masspirates.org/crew/sites/all/modules/civicrm/install/index.php
Today, I worked on configuration webform/civicrm integration. This amounted to installing webform, webform_civicrm, and dependent modules. Aka
drush pm-download webform drush pm-enable webform drush pm-download webform_civicrm drush pm-enable webform_civicrm
Also had to enable module "CiviCRM Contact Reference Field"
This seems to work. You can create a webform, contact information creates new Civicrm contacts, and form submission can be recorded as civicrm activities.
Civicrm 4.5.0 Upgrade
Also updated civicrm
drush civicrm-upgrade --tarfile=$HOME/civicrm-4.5.0-drupal.tar.gz
This failed on the last step:
WD php: Exception: Your database has already been upgraded to CiviCRM 4.4.6 in [error] CRM_Upgrade_Headless->run() (line 53 of masspirates.org/web/crew/sites/all/modules/civicrm/CRM/Upgrade/Headless.php). Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at [warning] /usr/share/drush/includes/output.inc:37) bootstrap.inc:1224 Exception: Your database has already been upgraded to CiviCRM 4.4.6 in CRM_Upgrade_Headless->run() (line 53 of masspirates.org/web/crew/sites/all/modules/civicrm/CRM/Upgrade/Headless.php). Drush command terminated abnormally due to an unrecoverable error. [error]
Let's try the database upgrade separately
That seemed to work successfully.
All filesystem changes committed to source control, and pushed to origin/master.
There's a (still experimental) module for CiviCRM/Bitpay integration: https://civicrm.org/blogs/andyw/bitcoin-payment-processing-bitpay.
Downloaded .zip from https://github.com/circleinteractive/uk.co.circleinteractive.payment.bitcoin.
First challenge: figuring out where one installs CiviCRM extenions.
Our civicrm extensions directory is ~/masspirates.org/web/crew/sites/default/files/civicrm/extensions/
Needed to configure civicrm Extension Resource URL.
Installed uk.co.circleinteractive.payment.bitcoin by
- unpacking .zip in the extensions directory
- drush cei uk.co.circleinteractive.payment.bitcoin
Enabled "CiviCRM: profile listings and forms" permission for anonymous users. According to the article on Bitpay integration, this allows the payment processor to make callbacks after a payment has been processed.
Under Administer > System Settings > Payment processors. Clicked "Add Payment Processor". I see bitpay in the list.
Not going to tackle the configuration piece now.
