Running ERPNext on vps

Hi Friends ,

I had installed erpnext on top of windows 10 workstation using OVM and importing ova file available at erpnext.org , However , I need to release it for beta testing to select group of users so i want to move it to VPS , The VPS available to me is ubuntu 18.04 LTS and for virtualization it uses KVM ,

Can some one guide me how do i move my existing setup (erpnext configuration i.e. doc types etc and data (master data) to KVM running on ubuntu 18.04 LTS

If you follow the backup procedures you will have all of those things in three files in a directory like this:

frappe-bench
└── sites
	└── yoursitename
      β”œβ”€β”€ private
      β”‚   β”œβ”€β”€ backups
      β”‚   β”‚   β”œβ”€β”€ 20191215_190435-yoursitename-database.sql.gz
      β”‚   β”‚   β”œβ”€β”€ 20191215_190435-yoursitename-files.tar
      β”‚   β”‚   β”œβ”€β”€ 20191215_190435-yoursitename-private-files.tar
      β”‚   └── files
      β”œβ”€β”€ public
      β”œβ”€β”€ site_config.json

So you’re getting 3 compressed files, being, in order: your database, your public files directory and your private files directory.

Note: Your site_config.json does not get backed up, but you will need it. To include it in the backup procedure I copy mine into the directory private/files like so:

frappe-bench
└── sites
	└── yoursitename
      β”œβ”€β”€ private
      β”‚   β”œβ”€β”€ backups
      β”‚   β”‚   β”œβ”€β”€ 20191215_190435-yoursitename-database.sql.gz
      β”‚   β”‚   β”œβ”€β”€ 20191215_190435-yoursitename-files.tar
      β”‚   β”‚   β”œβ”€β”€ 20191215_190435-yoursitename-private-files.tar
      β”‚   └── files
      β”‚       └── site_config.json
      β”œβ”€β”€ public
      β”œβ”€β”€ site_config.json

After restoring, I make a hyperlink to it like this:

       β”œβ”€β”€ site_config.json -> ./private/files/site_config.json

You should be able to install ErpNext in your VPS , restore the backup and find everything starting back up as before.
