Hi,
Use ‘bench update’ command to update your erp version.
steps:-
1.On terminal
2. go to path where your setup installed.
for example- cd Documents/frappe6/frappe-bench
means your path where setup is installed/frappe-bench

3.then activate environment for that use command ‘source …/bin/activate’
4. then enter ’ bench update’ command.

ikhlas1@ikhlas1:~/bench$ source …/bin/activate
bash: …/bin/activate: No such file or directory

ikhlas1@ikhlas1:~/bench$ bench update
You asked me to pull without telling me which branch you
want to merge with, and ‘branch.v0.93.merge’ in
your configuration file does not tell me, either. Please
specify which branch you want to use on the command line and
try again (e.g. 'git pull ').
See git-pull(1) for details.

If you often merge with the same branch, you may want to
use something like the following in your configuration file:
[branch “v0.93”]
remote =
merge =

[remote "<nickname>"]
url = <url>
fetch = <refspec>

See git-config(1) for details.

What do you mean by latest version? The latest 4.x or the current 6.x version?

Good question.

Also before attempting any update:
1: from your V4 frappe/frappe-bench/ folder run
bench export-fixtures
bench migrate
2: Export a back up of your V4 DB
3: Now from your V4 frappe/frappe-bench/ folder run
bench update

I guess that would update the existing V4 to it’s latest (V4) version, right?

If you wanted to upgrade to the new major version after doing all preps described by @System19 would be followed by a bench update --upgrade I think (again from inside the frappe/frappe-bench/ folder). Isn’t that so?

What I wonder … once you are in V4 does a bench update --upgrade result into a V5 or the newest that is out there?

Hmmm probably not… Just try it see the result :joy:

ikhlas1@ikhlas1:~/bench$ bench export-fixtures
Usage: bench [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]…

Error: No such command “export-fixtures”.
ikhlas1@ikhlas1:~/bench$

cd /your-server-user-name/frappe-bench/
then run
bench export-fixtures
and all other bench commands for that matter.
To check to see if you are in the right folder run
bench --help
If you get an error like above you are not in the right folder.

bench --help…I am in right folder

No your not.
Try logging into your server with the username frappe and not ikhlas1.
frappe@ikhlas1: cd ~/frappe-bench/
then run bench --help again and you should get more bench commands.

Ok just re read your post
login as usual then cd ~/frappe-bench/ then bench --help or bench export-fixtures
Most ERPNext installs are created in the frappe user account.
Not the root or admin account.

Sorry I am a bit lost as to how your dev setup your instance of ERPNext.
Also I don’t have a copy of ERPNext version4 to check against.
Can you run cd /home/ the run ls
You should normally see one folder (in your case called ikhlas1) and another folder called frappe. Can you confirm this is the case please.

I am have only one folder ikhlas1 and no other folder is there called frappe…!

Ok thanks. Where is your copy of ERPNext installed?
On a local computer or on a web server?

on web server

Where about? Digital Ocean, Go Daddy etc etc

And who set this up for you?

Sorry on my local machine only i am have a problem…In web server its has no prroblem…
