OK; here’s the situation. I downloaded and installed ERPNext in a Virtual Box environment on my laptop, primarily to do accounting functions for my one man business (that’s me). All OK.
I then decided that I would like the service to be in the cloud (I keep all my other data in the Cloud) so I could access it anytime, so I signed up for Google’s “always free” small Compute engine, and migrated my Virtual Box environment to it using the free CloudEndure service (I didn’t want to do a clean re-install because I had data in ERPNext in the Virtual Box environment). All good.
I changed my DNS entries and the Google Cloud settings so I always got the same IP address and created a sub.domain. So far, so good.
Now, I want to create an https connection. Following instructions, I need to find frappe and frappe-bench and configure some stuff - but I can’t find it! It must be there somewhere, because ERPNext works a treat (can’t email stuff, but I’ll get to that once I’ve figured out https). Has anyone had the same problem and how did they figure it out?
By the way, I don’t have much experience with Unix/Linux-type systems, so I might be missing something basic.
The output from Locate and updatedb is:
mike_duncombe@cloudshell:/tmp (elegant-weaver-203910)$ locate
-bash: locate: command not found
mike_duncombe@cloudshell:/tmp (elegant-weaver-203910)$ updatedb
-bash: updatedb: command not found
I’ve tried the other commeands you suggest, and this is what I get:
mike_duncombe@cloudshell:~ (elegant-weaver-203910)$ ls -a
. … .bash_history .bash_logout .bashrc .config .docker .lesshst myoutput .orion .profile README-cloudshell.txt .ssh tem0.txt .viminfo
mike_duncombe@cloudshell:~ (elegant-weaver-203910)$ ls -a /opt/

HI guys, penny finally dropped. The way Google Cloud works is that the resources are managed from a separate instance running Cloudshell, which points to the server. So, when I was looking for frappe, I was looking on the instance running Cloudshell, not the instance running Frappe. You can login to the instance running frappe; then bingo, there’s the frappe directory:

Thanks for your help, guys. You made me think so I could solve the problem - PICNIC, I believe (Problem in Chair not in computer!)
