We have taken all the suggestions each one presented issues some of which we have posted here in the forum.
Here are the types of install tested:
production install script
We have done the research but yet have had to jump through hoops to install because there have been changes in syntax, bugs/development, and outdated instructions that are not congruent with what we are experiencing with ver7 on Ubuntu 16.04.
A simple step by step guide specific to ver7 Ubuntu or for that matter any other distro that addresses issues with frappe user permissions, proper non root install, and then how to change site name and host name properly in multitenant with out errors. Many of the bench commands referenced on this pagehttps://frappe.github.io/frappe/user/en/bench/resources/bench-commands-cheatsheet.html and the forums just don’t work no matter where and whom they are executed by.
We are capable of searching the forum and docs, which since we are logged in you should have visibility to the metrics to see the time searched to see we have been diligent. We have found solutions to fix one problem only to be presented with another.
We fully understand that this is open source so we are certainly trying to work within that expectation level and are very grateful for all the work done but is very hard to navigate this product so that we can get a working and viable solution so we can begin to give back…
We will say that if we do not care if its not named oursite.domain.com or do not need ssl we can get a working copy on the localhost but if we want to modify just about anything incorrect commands, permission issues and errors abound…
If we have somehow missed the relevant definitive guide for ver7 and unbuntu than take this post for what it is a user’s experience and their desire to find a solution that doesn’t appear obvious for what looks like an excellent solution.
