I am a Dolibarr rookie and I need some advice… See below the README file on how to add a module into Dolibarr (can’t do it with the frontend… the folder is too big).
Few questions (I have my wife’s old Mac):
- which other place README is talking about? A specific place? Do I create a new one in the Dolibarr folder?
- How to add a symbolic link? Where do I copy and paste the line of code (with my own folder’s name off course)?
Thanks for your help,
FYI, I am not a coder… so be nice with me
DOLIBARR ERP & CRM custom directory for external modules
This directory is dedicated to store external modules.
To use it, just copy here the directory of the module into this directory.
Note: On linux or MAC systems, it is better to unzip/store the external module directory into a different place than this directory and just adding a symbolic link here to the htdocs directory of the module.
For example on Linux OS: Get the module from the command
mkdir ~/git; cd ~/git
git clone https://git.framasoft.org/p/newmodule/newmodule.git
Then create the symbolic link
ln -fs ~/git/newmodule/htdocs /path_to_dolibarr/htdocs/custom/newmodule
Check also that the /custom directory is active by adding into dolibarr
conf/conf.php file the following
two lines, so dolibarr will also scan /custom directory to find external external modules:
