Click on “I AGREE” if you agree with the vTiger Public Licence.
“Installation Prerequisites” – select “NEXT”
(There is an error with the error_logging that haven’t fixed yet. This does not effect the installation) If you know how to resolve this, that would be great! I tested using a slightly older version of Tiger7.0.1 and did not have the problem. So far i don’t see it affecting anything.)

Localhost should work, assuming TIGER and PBX are on the same box.

The system will start doing installations of the application. you’ll see a status bar moving around. Usually only takes 30 seconds. Depends on speed of your system.
The system will then present you some check boxes of the type of business you are running and additional modules that are custom to your environment. Once the installation is completed, you will be at the vTiger admin window and your installation is completed.
I’m going to talk about intergrating asterisk issabel with the ticket system so if that is something that interests you, select CALL CENTER.
