Hello,
Great, it works.
I tried many times to install frappe on Ubuntu with no success so I’m very happy.
I made the following addition on your procedure :

First : allow root user in ubuntu 20.04
sudo passwd root

Step 11 Correct the line (add space) :
UPDATE user SET plugin = ’ ’ WHERE user = ‘root’;

After step 12
Use your user USERNAME after reboot (do not continue as root)

Step 14 copy and execute only line 14

step 15 on error and seems to be useless according to step16 ?

Before line 17
cd frappe/ to launch bench in correct directory

step 23 reboot before access ERPNEXT.

Thanks to you

Looking for a solution during the same?

When you enter this command, what is the result?

$  which git

Hey @brian_pond,

Thanks for asking, the output of which git is /usr/bin/git and version is 2.25.1

Although I have resolved the above by following initial steps from “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Installing Frappe on Linux” at https://github.com/frappe/frappe/wiki/The-Hitchhiker’s-Guide-to-Installing-Frappe-on-Linux

I have switched back to v12 as I was not able to proceed after step 17 but will give it another try on v13 again tomorrow.

Cheers!

@adals
Because your post may help many members, I hope you don’t mind me editing your post for more clarity of the codes.

@adals just tested your guide on a digitalocean stock ubuntu 20.04

an issue at step 14:
Error: EACCES: permission denied, open '/root/.yarnrc'

you should clarify that you need to change user and cd to your home directory prior to step 14. (ctrl-d + ssh USERNAME will not work as ssh keys are enforced)

one more thing:

  • add # comment to step 14 -> pip (looks like you should run that line :slight_smile:
  • move all (enter mysql root…) comments into non courier comments under the pre-formatted line to make it easier to copy-paste.

last,
it’s not clear on what to do at the end, i.e.

  • run this to get your server IP and login details to be able to login
  1. close the terminal and open new one and login with ssh USERNAME

yes, assumes you install ssh keys first

yes I supposed that I explained erpnext only not others.

I cleared that I used ssh not other tool and the others should find anything related to ssh if they did not know about it

best wishes

Thanks Friend! it worked for me
