Easy install for local usage?

Hi,

I’m trying to understand the documentation for the easy install:

Do I need to pass parameters to the script? I just want to use it locally.

I’m getting a lengthy error, but the short version is:

nicholas@mordor:~/erp$ 
nicholas@mordor:~/erp$ sudo python3 install.py

what’s the approach to run this correctly?

same error, this used to be not like this

I would be interested in a simple, or even simplistic, docker
image for local usage. the docker they have is too involved for
me. you need fqdn correctly setup, etc. too much.

Try development docker, https://github.com/frappe/frappe_docker/tree/develop/development
It will help to bootstrap local development environment and do bench start.

I’ve yet to figure out how to install docker everywhere easily. https://github.com/frappe/frappe_docker/issues/353.

Only few of us are able to use docker as expected. I use it for development as well as production.

Why docker is beneficial for me? I have many more things running on my servers other than frappe/erpnext. Docker/k8s helps me install all such things on same server instead of dedicating full servers for frappe/erpnext.

Docker/Kubernetes won’t magically scale anything.
