Frappe installation error (FileNotFoundError:)

On bench start im getting the following error when i open localhost:8000
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘/Users/USER/Desktop/first-bench/sites/localhost/logs/frappe.web.log’

I have also seen that.

What happens if you explicitly create the directory and file before creating the site?

mkdir -p /Users/USER/Desktop/first-bench/sites/localhost/logs
touch /Users/USER/Desktop/first-bench/sites/localhost/logs/frappe.web.log

Also, please indicate your system type, install method, and the commands you run leading up to the problem occuring. Thanks.

Hey MartinHBramwell

im using a mac and followed the steps in the install bench github repo readme.
i was facing some errors so after reading some errors in of other people i used these commands to get bench start to work…

==>source env/bin/activate
==>pip install -e ./apps/frappe --no-cache-dir
==>bench build

after that i ran into this issue !
Your suggestions didnt work. so how did you resolve this issue?
Thank you !

doesnt work.
actually this might be because bench new site loacal.site failed.

Are you on Catalina? Frappe can not be installed on Catalina.
It still can on Mojave.

Yes catalina!. i have decided to go with the docker installation and it worked fine!
thanks you !
