Fool proof install - step by step

Maybe you also need to set it on this subdir…??

sudo chown -R erpnext:erpnext /opt/erpnext

that was performed earlier trentmu…

Now the real misery begins!

Thanks, I’m going to give it a go. It seems I am having very similar issues. Nothing I’ve found so far covers it all end to end.

You’re right, no matter what they say in the comments the install for this is beyond woeful. I’ll document it properly if I manage to get it working.

thanks Loftwah - everyones approach goes reasonably well until the pip install / bench init part. At this point there are endless errors

It would be useful if anyone has a script that can run an environment check to assist with trouble shooting - im assuming someone here can install this product so there must be an understood starting position… its beyond me currently, and life i too short!

It is a great framework and I’m really looking forward to using it. I think I may have a solution, I had it running but not quite as it should have been. The best image I’ve used is the Bitnami one but it has been a bit too overwhelming to get started on development. I did find a nice little gotcha that I’m trying right now, apparently if you run a bench update before bench start on initial setup it is supposed to make a difference.

The best guides I’ve found so far are.


The Ansible playbooks always fail for me but I can get it running with a little jiggery pokery afterwards. The best I’ve had it gets it installed and running but then it fails to initiate from the web browser.

I’d advise against the Easy Install install.py, and go for a manual installation. The best publicly available guide I’ve seen is this:

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Installing Frappe on Linux

Before installing, take time to make sure your MariaDB database is online, and can be accessed using the the root password.

If you get stuck, there’s now an ERPNext Public Help channel on Telegram: https://t.me/erpnexthelp. Plenty of us lurk there. :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi,
I had some weeks ago the same problem until I found a solution after trial and error many times. Please look at ERPNext DNS-Multitenant - disable recursion on the DNS Server.

Today I started a new installation in combination with wordpress. The result was, that the easy install script doesn’t work anymore. I don’t get it. How can this happen? I’m not a Linux Pro, I just want to use ERPNext! The thing with easy open source is not valid for ERPNext, you need a professinal. I really don’t get it. What is the problem for a professional coder to code a installation routine which just works?!

I think the challange should be to use and adapt ERPNext, not to install it.

Maybe there is an IT and ERPNext-Master who can do this for all people all over the world? We need your help!

Thank you in advance!

PS: Can anybody currently install ERPNext? Which update of what causes the error during the installation?

A fool proof install is no easy feat to specify if not code for - with users and computers, either end can quickly and easily outwit the other(!) - this forum is proof of that.

Plus to expect ERPNext to be all things to all people, and to simply work in all manner of host environments - is probably too ambitious, impractical and unsustainable a maintenance goal that no (paid or unpaid) person or organization would ever hope to realistically support.

@Curt.Beck - I’ve got plenty to say on this topic. It deserves its own thread for another day.

But in the meantime. If you can please share your error, then I will try to help.

I’ve installed ERPNext many times, always manually. The Easy Install script and I are not friends. Nonetheless, I’m familiar with many of the usual errors. If you can share yours, I may be able to identify the cause, and offer some advice.

Hi @Mohammad_Ahmad_Zulfi,

It used to work on Ubuntu 16, ive done it many atimes. But recently something changed and it stopped working.

Even the ubuntu 18 installation steps found on the forum worked about a month ago, I have a running VM which I done so, but when I tried a fresh one trying to show my dev team how to get erpnext up and running it fails. so definetly something changed.

Currently installing on a fresh ubuntu 16 no updates (desktop version) it fails at this step:

TASK [common : install pillow prerequisites for Ubuntu < 14.04] **************************************************
task path: /tmp/.bench/playbooks/roles/common/tasks/ubuntu.yml:3
[DEPRECATION WARNING]: Invoking “apt” only once while using a loop via squash_actions is deprecated. Instead of
using a loop to supply multiple items and specifying pkg: "{{ item }}", please use pkg: ['libjpeg8-dev', 'libtiff4-dev', 'tcl8.5-dev', 'tk8.5-dev'] and remove the loop. This feature will be removed in version 2.11.

Why are you using Ubuntu 16?

I have the same issue!

Used it in the past and had no issue with easy install so just as a test to see if it would work, fails on both desktop and server versions

I tried in google cloud and got me similar errors.

We all would benefit from your successful installation experience, if you could write down the exact steps, commands, logs, gotcha notes, in one place, like a how-to guide.

I also have the same issue. The Easy Install fails on:

No matter what i try, it fails (Ubuntu 18.04 server)
