Installing ErpNext on CentOs 7 - Guide


#1

Hi to all,

After trying to install ErpNext on a CentOs distribution I finally got it, so I share results with you all.

There are other posts related:

I use this guide to start with: http://comtronic.com.au/install-erpnext-centos7/

This is what I did to accomplish:

0- Get the CentOs V7 or any but the DVD Core version: CentOS-7-x86_64-Minimal-1511.iso

  • Set up everything:
    • Language
    • Time
    • root Password
    • HardDisk
  • If network is not up and running:

    nmtui (And modify as need it)
    service network restart (Restart service)

Ping google.com (To test Internet connection)

1- Run the following command:

yum erase chrony -y && yum install vim ntp ntpdate telnet deltarpm wget open-vm-tools -y && systemctl enable ntpd && systemctl enable ntpdate && yum update -y && init 6

2- Modify the file /etc/sysconfig/selinux with:

SELINUX=disabled
…then > init 6

3- Create directory:

mkdir /opt/erpnext
cd /opt/erpnext

4- Execute command:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/frappe/bench/master/install_scripts/setup_frappe.sh

5- Modify the setup_frappe.sh file:

…Locate function add_user(), on line 433 add :
usermod -aG wheel $FRAPPE_USER
…Later, locate line 478 then add:
usermod -G ‘’ $FRAPPE_USER

6- Execute and replace the word THE-PASSWORD-FOR-THE-MYSQL-SERVER with a password:

bash setup_frappe.sh --setup-production --mysql-root-password THE-PASSWORD-FOR-THE-MYSQL-SERVER --verbose

7- Stop nginx file config:

service nginx stop

8- Modify nginx config file on /etc/nginx/nginx.conf, with the following values:


user nginx;
worker_processes auto;
error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;
pid /run/nginx.pid;

events {
worker_connections 1024;
}

http {
log_format main '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] “$request” ’
'$status $body_bytes_sent “$http_referer” ’
‘"$http_user_agent" “$http_x_forwarded_for”’;

access_log  /var/log/nginx/access.log  main;

sendfile            on;
#tcp_nopush          on;
tcp_nodelay         on;
#keepalive_timeout   65;
types_hash_max_size 2048;

include             /etc/nginx/mime.types;
default_type        application/octet-stream;

# Load modular configuration files from the /etc/nginx/conf.d directory.
# See http://nginx.org/en/docs/ngx_core_module.html#include
# for more information.
include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;
index   index.html index.htm;
}

9- Then restart nginx service:

service nginx start

10- Modify the default company from site1.local to “testcompany.com”:

su frappe
cd ~/frappe-bench
mv sites/site1.local testcompany.com
bench --site testcompany.com install-app erpnext
sudo bench setup production frappe

…then:

sudo bench update

…At the end:

exit

11- Browse the testcompany.com site on port 80 with the IP or URL (testcompany.com) set on host.

Hope everyone find this guide usefull.

This time when I installed on Physical Server: O boy so many attempts to recover, but no Success on Installation!

Bench Installed successfully
