I have done quite a few test installs following the manuall install and for some reason it now failing at this point:

cd frappe-bench
bench new-site $(hostname -f)

Does anyone have any suggestions regarding what I could try to resolve this?


#2

i am also getting the same error


#3

It seems a fix is in progress https://github.com/frappe/frappe/pull/6595


Error create new site: No module file_manager
#4

I’m glad to hear that it wasn’t my fault that it was failing, I guess I need to switch to installing a released version rather than pulling from master and hoping it currently works?


#5

I have switched to version 4.1 of bench (checked out using Ansible) and still I have this error when running bench new-site ...:

"ImportError: Module import failed for Report (frappe.core.doctype.report.report Error: No module named file_manager)"

So I think I need to work out how to install a specific version of frappe…?


#6

This is what I’m doing to try and get a working ERPNext site up and running:

su - erpnext
git clone https://github.com/frappe/bench.git .bench
cd .bench
git checkout tags/4.1
cd
pip install --user -e .bench
.local/bin/bench init frappe-bench

This ends with this error:

This is with a new version of Yarn:

yarn --version

If I ignore the errors and continue…

cd frappe-bench
../.local/bin/bench new-site --mariadb-root-username root --mariadb-root-password XXX  --db-name erpnext --admin-password YYY $( hostname -f)

This then fails with the same error as above:

I don’t want a bleeding edge version I want something stable I can use in production, is this possible to achieve?


#7

I’ve just found this thread and switching to the staging branch:

git clone https://github.com/frappe/bench.git .bench
cd .bench
git checkout -b staging
cd
pip install --user -e .bench
.local/bin/bench init frappe-bench --frappe-branch staging
cd frappe-bench
../.local/bin/bench new-site --mariadb-root-username root --mariadb-root-password XXX  --db-name erpnext --admin-password YYY $( hostname -f)

And this works… is the staging branch the best one to use for production then?


#8

Only just… I would say yes but there have been several breaking updates in bringing V11 to life. I wait for Merge branch ‘staging’ into develop and then do a bench update --reset. So in answer to your question, I would use the dev branch as the Master Branch lacks so many features compared to V11 staging/develop. Also both ERPNext and frappe API have progressed a lot and system has been massively optimised in V11. Is this good practice… No…But from your posts above you appear well equiped to survive any hiccups that come along. Just Back Up… Of course…


#9

I am currently running
bench 4.1.0
erpnext 11.0.3-beta.24
frappe 11.0.3-beta.29
And am still keenly awaiting some PR’s to make the healthcare module better.


#10

Thanks for the replies.

That is over two years old — this is still the best version?

How are you installing it, I have been using:

bench get-app --branch XX erpnext https://github.com/frappe/erpnext

And I have been trying with develop, staging and master and they have either been failing with errors or resulting in a site that doesn’t have a working login link.

Should I assume since all the tests appear to be failing on all the branches this is to be expected?

I’m specifying the frappe version using:

bench init frappe-bench --frappe-branch XX 

Again I have been trying various combinations of develop, staging and master with no luck in getting a working site up and running.

I don’t want a beeding edge version, I don’t want the latest features, I just want to be able to install ERPNext on a server using Ansible in a way that works every time — does anyone know if there is a way to achieve this?


#11

I removed all the references to specific branches and versions and reinstalled everything and it is working again, I guess you just need to cross your fingers every time you install ERPNext and hope that the code that is pulled from GitHub that day actually works?


Error create new site: No module file_manager
#12

bench 4.1.0 is the master branch of bench. It was last updated 20 days ago.

In short:
Always run the master branch of bench. This is in both your Dev and Live Production instance.

After you have created a instance with

bench init frappe-bench
cd frappe-bench

On your local Dev version:

bench get-app erpnext https://github.com/frappe/erpnext
bench new-site site1.local
bench --site site1.local install-app erpnext
bench switch-to-branch staging
bench start

On your Live production instance you would

bench get-app erpnext https://github.com/frappe/erpnext
bench new-site myurl.com
bench --site myurl.com install-app erpnext
bench switch-to-master
bench start

Using the Above will create:
A Local Dev instance running master branch of bench with staging branch of both frappe and erpnext.
A Live Production instance running master branch of bench with master branch of both frappe and erpnext.

HTH


#13

Sorry, my bad, I thought you were referencing the latest release, 4.1 dated Aug 3, 2016.

Thanks, I’ll add the bench switch-to-master command to my Ansible tasks.


#14

All good.
Github branch naming has gone a bit weird recently with the Dev branch currently being called the Staging branch.


#15

Using bench switch-to-master produced:

Branch master set up to track remote branch master from upstream.
Already up-to-date.
Switching for frappe
Branch master does not exist in Upstream for erpnext
Successfully switched branches for:
frappe
()
Switched to master
Please run `bench update --patch` to be safe from any differences in database schema

Running bench update --patch results in:

#17

I used the below commands:

git clone https://github.com/frappe/bench bench-repo
pip install --user -e bench-repo
bench init frappe-bench && cd frappe-bench

And I got the following error:

ImportError: Module import failed for Report (frappe.core.doctype.report.report Error: No module named file_manager)

The question is: the above commands are not installing the master branch of bench?
How can we let it installing the master branch of bench?

Regards
Bilal


#18

The default bench install is from the master branch - to check for this:

frappe@ubuntu:~/frappe-bench$ cd ../.bench/
frappe@ubuntu:~/.bench$ git status
On branch master
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.
nothing to commit, working directory clean
frappe@ubuntu:~/.bench$ bench --version
4.1.0

#19

Hello @clarkej

Why I can not find .bench directory?
I am looking for it under /home/frappe and not under frappe-bench, but I can not find it. Why?

Regards
Bilal


#20

Because you cloned it into bench-repo:


#21

Thanks good catch chrisc!

My instance is from a VM download, with ERPNext preinstalled, so that explains my case why the bench is written to .bench and not for eg bench-repos.
