    Trying to install OroCRM but it fails.

    I follow the steps mentioned in README.md on https://github.com/orocrm/crm-application
    The procedure stops at the following command: $ php composer.phar install --prefer-dist
    Loading composer repositories with package information
    Installing dependencies (including require-dev)

    I’ve created an alias for “php composer.phar”… I’m lazy$ cat ~/.bash_aliases
    alias composer='/usr/bin/php ~/bin/composer.phar'

    When I just type “composer” it will call “/usr/bin/php ~/bin/composer.phar”
    The output gives me the following info: ______
    / ____/___ ____ ___ ____ ____ ________ _____
    / / / __ \/ __ `__ \/ __ \/ __ \/ ___/ _ \/ ___/

    Exit code number: 128+n
    Meaning: Fatal error signal “n”
    Example: kill -9 $PPID of script
    Comment: $? returns 137 (128 + 9)

    In other words …
    or the last command or the next command will end up in a fatal error.

    When I execute composer to install orocrm the process stops at provider-mlebkowski$crane.json

    well… euh… I don’t have a clue how to solve it.
    Can anyone reproduce the issue?

    Please provide detailed information about your environment.
    Have you tried to install any other package on your system using composer ?
    Have you tried to clear composer cache ?

    It’s weird because OroCRM doesn’t have any dependency on mlebkowski/crane…


    Hans Kuijpers

    Could you be more specific what kind of information you want from my environment?
    PHP 5.4.4 is installed on this Linux server with CGI/FastCGI. Shared Hosting.

    Started with a clean environment using the steps mentioned in README.md on https://github.com/orocrm/crm-application

    Just cleared composer cache using the following command

    <quote>It’s weird because OroCRM doesn’t have any dependency on mlebkowski/crane…</quote>
    Perhaps it’s a dependency of another dependency… after cache cleaning I tried to install it again… and on the same package it fails.

    Can you reproduce my issue?


    Alexandr Smaga

    No I can’t. I have the same provider in composer cache folder, but dependencies installed without errors.


    Hans Kuijpers

    Started from scratch. Same error.

    @Hans : The process is probably being killed by the linux kernel’s Out of Memory Killer. If this is what’s happening, you’ll see some messages in /var/log/syslog like this:

    PHP has had a reputation in the past of being a memory hog, and I’ve observed composer using quite a bit of memory and being killed when running:

    So simple solution is to increase the memory on your VM (assuming you’re using a VM), or add additional RAM to your box.


    Hans Kuijpers

    Hi James,

    Thank you for your reply. Your assumption was correct. Composer dependencies consumed the entire RAM of the Shared Hosting optimised for Magento.
    You’re telling that PHP has had a reputation in the past of being a memory hog. Wouldn’t it be better if composer doesn’t need so much memory?

    You can use zip or tar packages if there are any issues with composer.
