Hi Experts,

I am not able to open the browser and cannot find any GUI.
Please help me with this. Can you also share the root password?

Thanks,
Piyush

The VM is headless, you have to open the browser on the host not in the vm.

There is no root password. The user erpnext is a sudoer. Password for
erpnext user is erpnext.

Thanks,

Open the browser on the host os (ie. on which you are running
virtualbox on the bare metal). Virtualbox should forward port 8000, so
you can goto http://localhost:8000 from the host.

I am also struggling with root sometimes!
I don't think erpnext is a sudoer, I am using the downloaded virtual image on virtualbox, see screenshot here: http://imgur.com/OMy2UrV

Hi Khaled,

The root password is erpnext.

Thanks,

I know its some time ago, but when I hit such troubles with a sudo user I change roots password.
Just run
sudo passwd
then pick your own strong password.
Just remember sudo was created to help keep you more secure and safe so you don’t accidentally break things.
If you just want a temporary elevation, why not run
sudo sh
or
sudo bash

Is the password is the same for the root in latest vm .
erpnext is not working with me.
Please advise

@Muhamed
The credentials of the virtual image are:

username: frappe
password: frappe
mysql root password: frappe

Once the Virtual Machine boots, use your HOST operating system’s browser and go to:

http://localhost:8080
and login using:

user: Administrator
password: admin
