You might try a CiviBuild in Docker. See https://github.com/michaelmcandrew/civicrm-buildkit-docker for the link and how to install it.

  • Thanks, but my problem has been solved and I have switched to Linux(Ubuntu); it might help others...

I use FTP and upload all the files and then run the installer.


I do the same with CiviCRM


  • Actually, i'm trying to create Entity using command line and generating sql for them as said here: docs.civicrm.org/dev/en/latest/extensions/civix/… command i need to run is: <civiroot>/bin/setup.sh -g to generate sql

Thanks my Problem has been solved! I have used this technique to solve this Problem:

I wanted to use ./bin/setup.sh -g this command to generate sql and DAO, for that what I did is:

Just downloaded civicrm-core from GitHub and then patched with an installation of CiviCRM drupal module.

How I did patch this: (in Ubuntu)

I have just mixed/merged civicrm-core and CiviCRM's drupal module in one directory.

and then I have just configured civicrm-core/bin/setup.conf by copying setup.conf.txt with my real installation of CiviCRM database information.

that's it configuration success.

now I can use ./bin/setup.sh -g while i am on civicrm-core-master directory.

to generate sql and DAO please read carefully carefully every step from here: https://docs.civicrm.org/dev/en/latest/extensions/civix/#generate-entity

If you are having any difficulties please comment down below, I will be glad to help you.
