Fixed! – SugarCRM – Module Loader blank page after installing module

This took me a while till I found a solution. The module builder in SugarCRM seems to have a bug. Whenever you install something using the module loader, the system seems to kind of crash. The module loader page is not showing anything any more except the saying “Module Loader”. This seems to be a bug in all 6.2.x versions.

I found a solution here.

Goto the file ModuleInstall/PackageManager/PackageManager.php and edit line 668.


$target_manifest = remove_file_extension( $upgrade_content ) . '-manifest.php';


$target_manifest = UploadFile::realpath(remove_file_extension( $upgrade_content ) . '-manifest.php');
