The bench is a command-line utility that helps you to install apps, manage multiple sites and update Frappe / ERPNext apps on */nix (CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, etc) for development and production. Bench will also create nginx and supervisor config files, setup backups and much more.
If you are using on a VPS make sure it has >= 1Gb of RAM or has swap setup properly.
To do this install, you must have basic information on how Linux works and should be able to use the command-line. If you are looking easier ways to get started and evaluate ERPNext, [download the Virtual Machine](https://erpnext.com/download) or take [a free trial on erpnext.com](https://erpnext.com/pricing).
If you have questions, please ask them on the [forum](https://discuss.erpnext.com/).
