How to install erpnext version 12 on ubuntu 18.04


I had done easy install. There is no frappe user directory. So I am doing this from /home/frappe/site/erpnext

Thus the error.


I checked with a find command…there is no frappe-bench directory at all in my system. There is a frappe directory, though. Running bench update command from that directory produces the same error.


Unless you specified otherwise, frappe-bench is the default bench directory name for either Easy or Manual Install. One runs the bench command set from that directory.

Assuming you specified a frappe user account (as you say you did), that user account lives here /home/frappe. With a typical bench install, the frappe-bench is a subdirectory of that user account, hence the path to the bench is /home/frappe/frappe-bench.

When the install completes, the two apps erpnext and frappe live here
/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/erpnext and /home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe. Once you create a website - say site1.local, that you will find here /home/frappe/frappe-bench/sites/site1.local
