    sudo apt install -y software-properties-common
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 0xF1656F24C74CD1D8
    sudo add-apt-repository ‘deb [arch=amd64,i386,ppc64el] http://ftp.ubuntu-tw.org/mirror/mariadb/repo/10.3/ubuntu/xenial/main
    sudo apt install -y mariadb-server-10.3

Log in and Create Mysql Database

mysql -u root -p
MariaDB [(none)]> MariaDB [(none)]> CREATE DATABASE erpnext;
MariaDB [(none)]> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON erpnext.* TO ‘root’@‘localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘mariadbpwd’ WITH GRANT OPTION;
grant all privileges on . to root@localhost identified by ‘mariadbpwd’ with grant option;
MariaDB [(none)]> \q;

  1. download frappe from github
    su - frappe
    cd /home/frappe
    sudo git clone https://github.com/frappe/bench bench
    sudo -H pip install -e bench
    exit

Create a new Bench as the frappe user.

su - frappe
bench init frappe-bench
cd frappe-bench

#add database configurations
vi /home/frappe/frappe-bench/sites/common_site_config.json

{
“db_host”: “localhost”,
“db_port”: “3306”
}

edit the mysql.conf file

sudo vim /etc/mysql/my.conf
sudo vim /etc/mysql/mariadb.cnf

[mysqld]
bind-address = 0.0.0.0
innodb-file-format=barracuda
innodb-file-per-table=1
innodb-large-prefix=1
character-set-client-handshake = FALSE
character-set-server = utf8mb4
collation-server = utf8mb4_unicode_ci

[mysql]
default-character-set = utf8mb4

restart the services of the database

sudo service mysql restart

Copy the Supervisor config file into place so that Frappe automatically starts up with the system.

cp /home/frappe/frappe-bench/config/supervisor.conf /etc/supervisor/conf.d/

To install ERPNext into your existing Frappe install, change to the frappe user and install the erpnext app.

su - frappe
cd frappe-bench
bench get-app erpnext https://github.com/frappe/erpnext

it is possible that the site1.localhost is clashing with a domain/DNS setting somewhere.
Maybe try it with bench new-site site1.local

Hi Trentm u,
Thanks for the prompt reply.
I tried it, but now am getting another error .
Installing fixtures…
*** Scheduler is disabled ***
Please help me out here. i tried enabling the scheduler, but its throwing error of not found…
We are trying to work this out for an on-prem installation for a client, if there’s no option for us, we may have to try some other ERP.

Regards
azli

bench enable-scheduler

should fix that.
I recommend staying with ERPNext. I have tried many systems, and this is honestly THE best of all of them (even the expensive ones).
If you don’t have a budget limit, you might consider a hosted solution which includes some support.

What is the error message? (the scheduler disabled is not a critical problem)

Hi Trentm u,
could you please check my steps of installation and let me know whether i have followed correctly?
the same error occurs.
can you help me with the installation please… am open for negotiations on a successful implementation…

regards
azli

Add theese settings to my.cnf and then restart the mysql service and it should be done.

Root13f,
Thanks, i did the same. but, no progress…
can you please do a check on my steps and let me know if i had missed any crucial steps?

regards
azli
