Multitentant Setup - Errors with DNS based setup

Hi,

I have tried to setup a fresh machine today. I have setup a new and fresh erpnext - everything worked perfect. Then I tried the following:

example@erpdoo:~$ bench set-url-root site1.local hoth.example.at
example@erpdoo:~$ bench new-site naboo

Hi,

You need to turn run bench config dns_multitenant on not bench config dns_multitenant off and then run bench setup nginx

Also if you want naboo to be your subdomain, like naboo.example.at, you want to name the site exactly that.

Ps : Maybe you wanna use Endor as your site instead of Naboo. Personal preference :wink:

damnit…i knew there were just a little mistake. working now.

why choose Endor oder Naboo :wink: ? Btw. my instances are Hoth, Naboo and Dagobah ^^
Because of the last battle on Endor where they last striked against the Empire? Well sounds great :wink: maybe for the fourth instance ^^

Hey if you wanna be recent, go for Jakku, but it sounds terribly boring :slight_smile:

I am having Jakku in Battlefront :wink: no need to have it as instance. But I guess 4 instances is enough for now;)

Btw my Erpnext4 production instance is called isengard;) so names and places are there ;p

Hi @vjFaLk, I managed to install multiple sites, however they seem incomplete, I can only see Tools, File manager, Website and Developer module/menu for each site:

Looks like only the Frappe framework was installed not the ERPNext:

Below were the commands:

root@localhost:/home/frappe# cd frappe-bench
root@localhost:/home/frappe/frappe-bench# bench new-site ledgergeek.com
MySQL root password:
Installing frappe…

I can see there was ValueError, but don’t know what it was. Could it be the cause?

Thanks

Hi all, I managed to sort it out. I installed erpnext using this command after creating a new site:
bench --site <site.name> install-app erpnext

And it works ok.
However I still have a bit question, why this additional command is not required on the official multitenant installation guides?

Cheers
