Guide: Ubuntu 18.04 - Easy Install


#1

Hello everyone,

I have made a way to make Easy Install work on Ubuntu 18.04. You can view my fork at iRaySpace/bench.

I have made some changes to the following files:

  • playbooks/install.py, where I added Ubuntu 18.04 under check_distribution_compatibility()
  • playbooks/roles/mariadb/defaults/main.yml, where I changed the MariaDB version to 10.3.
  • playbooks/roles/mariadb/tasks/main.yml, where I inserted a condition for ubuntu-bionic.yml. I excluded the override of mariadb.cnf. Added the override to the /etc/mysql/mariadb.conf.d/frappe.cnf, with the following contents, which can be found when using bench new-site command:

[mysqld]
character-set-client-handshake = FALSE
character-set-server = utf8mb4
collation-server = utf8mb4_unicode_ci

[mysql]
default-character-set = utf8mb4

  • playbooks/roles/mariadb/tasks/ubuntu-bionic.yml, where I added the repo file together with the repo key.
  • playbooks/roles/mariadb/tasks/mysql_secure_installation.yml, little fix to mysql commands.

You can try this easy install procedure.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-minimal
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/iRaySpace/bench/master/playbooks/install.py
sudo python install.py --production --user frappe

Let me know what you think.

Regards,

Hello, is it possible to get an easy install for ubuntu 17?
I’m having ubuntu-17.10.1-desktop and wanted to run ERPNext in it. Been having trouble to install.
Thanks

@iRaySpace frappe bench is already compatible with Ubuntu 18.04

Hello @codingCoffee

Thanks for the information. I wasn’t updated with the latest commits.


#5

Better go with the Stable version of Ubuntu, You may not get proper updates for other versions.
Ubuntu 17.X is already out of date.

Hello @deatram,

At what point were you stucked with installing the ERPNext on Ubuntu 17?


#7

I managed to install using manual steps but it can with
Installed Apps
ERPNext: v11.x.x-develop () (develop)
Frappe Framework: v11.x.x-develop () (develop)

What is the safe way to switch to master without breaking my apps? or switch to staging?

I running this on ubuntu 17.10.1 desktop, not virtual machine. so my concern is breaking my installation.


#8

I tried to run the install upgrade from 16.04 to 18.04 on DigitalOcean and it broke it. Had to revert to snapshot in order to get MariaDB connection back…

Hello @Suresh_Alien,
Just follow the official installation method provided by the Frappe now. The Ubuntu 18.04 is already supported.
