I have created my own ErpNext installer for Ubuntu Focal Fossa 20.04 LTS.
It is available as a Github Gist
I have not tried it on bare metal or a cloud server yet. I did all tests on QEMU/KVM virtual machines: 2CPUs, 70GB disk, 3072GB memory. It’s a
bash script, not Python.
I have run the scripts over and over again, continuously refining to minimize warnings, and I’ve put in environment tests to check if everything is where it’s expected to be.
The final Setup Wizard runs without flaws…
I believe there were two frequent sources of error in installation efforts:
- Confusion about when to install as root and when not to.
- Confusion about when to use Python 2 and when to use Python 3.
In this installer Python 2 is never used or even installed.
"sudo -A" wherever root privilege is necessary, so you’ll need to set that up. Instructions are found in the first of the five scripts.
Please give them a try and reply here with comments.
