As it says there, the script failed in the middle as it couldn’t connect to PyPI.

First, please recover Mysql root password, http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/resetting-permissions.html

To continue,

cd ~/
sudo pip install -e ~/bench-repo
bench init frappe-bench --apps_json https://raw.githubusercontent.com/frappe/bench/master/install_scripts/erpnext-apps.json
cd frappe-bench
bench new-site site1.local
bench frappe --install_app erpnext
bench frappe --install_app shopping_cart

Thank you for your reply.
I am not able to set mysql password it gives me error saying authentication required. I tried to many solutions but I am not able to clear this.
I tried to follow up your other steps I got erpnext folder in by frappe-bench folder . but command bench start is not opening my site. I guess this may be due to the database setup.

@sanam
I recognize that :slight_smile:

You might benefit from my experience

https://discuss.frappe.io/t/erpnext-installation-problem/4874/7#

Or you might consider a clean slate.

I can recommend to use a netboot image to install Ubuntu 14.04 in VM

When selecting installation components only base-server should be selected.

Shutdown the VM and make yourself a snapshot.

Start the VM and login.

Use the instruction from https://github.com/frappe/bench#easy-way

This might just get you off the ground

You can sudo apt-get purge mariadb-server mariadb-common libmariadbclient-dev and sudo apt-get install mariadb-server mariadb-common libmariadbclient-dev to reinstall and it should ask you to set the root password also. Then proceed with new-site and install-app commands

I just reinstalled my ubuntu and now its working perfectly.
Thankyou for your help. :blush:
