I'm interested in knowing if anyone has sucessfully installed ORO CRM on a droplet.

I haven't installed OROCRM myself before but looking at their website, it doesn't look too hard to install:

  1. Install the LAMP stack on a droplet: How To Install Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (LAMP) stack on Ubuntu 14.04.
  2. Install the required php extensions: sudo apt-get install git-core php5-mysql php5-curl php5-gd php5-mcrypt php5-intl
  3. Follow the instructions here in /var/www: cd /var/www.

One of the most common steps to take when setting up a new server is to install a LAMP stack. LAMP stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. These individual components, when used together, allow us to host dynamic web content like websites and web apps on our server. We will demonstrate how to install these pieces and configure a basic setup for Ubuntu 14.04 in this guide.

Just installed the oroPlatform on my localhost to test and I am very impressed by it. Will try to install it on my cloud. Have you tried installed oro yet since last comment?

I set it up recently on a CentOS-6 512MB / 1 CPU, it was still usable but I found it to be more responsive on a 1GB droplet with APC enabled.

The biggest issues I found were having enough memory to run the update and install scripts. This was solved by padding in the -d flag to define a memory_limit of 512 when running updates or installs.

Also I couldn't find a suitable PHP soap library from any repo for PHP 5.4+, I think in the end it turned out I'd added remi but not enabled it with
yum --enablerepo=remi install php-soap
