Error on centos 7

to retry, use: --limit @/tmp/.bench/playbooks/production/install.retry

cant find any solution i use
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/frappe/bench/master/playbooks/install.py
run as root
python install.py --production --user frappe

/home/root implies you are running this as root.
Rather run as user frappe

its still same if i run with user frappe

This implies a path/permissions error.
If run as frappe, it will most likely create /home/frappe/frappe-bench… etc.

The user frappe needs to be in sudo group during install.

i already adduser -aG wheel frappe

and still error

i think i solve by creating dir /home/root and chown that folder to frappe :frowning: maybe dev will fix the folder issue

@wellart - although it is working, it should not be in /home/root. It should be in /home/frappe if it was run/created as user frappe. You might have problems when you run updates etc on this installation. I recommend redoing it as frappe from scratch

yeah i will fresh install the server and start from begining,
the process is
add user frappe add sudo and login on frappe user and install from there? CMIIW

That is probably better.

@clarkej also pointed out this Error while installing on centos 7 x64 OPENVZ VPS which might help
