Click on NEXT

The system will start doing installations of the application.  you’ll see a status bar moving around.  Usually only takes a minute or two.  Depends on speed of your system.  Just be patient (i’ve seen it take 5 minutes)

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.

You’ll be presented with a “ALMOST THERE” menu.  Its double checking your preferences.

Select “GET STARTED

You should now be in the VTIGER dashboard
