Okay, I have been reading the revised automated install instructions to gain some clarity on exactly how to run the install.py script. The instructions say to:
1.) Download the install script
(I used the download command for linux on a fresh Debian 8 server using the frappe user account)
2.) Run the install script
( I used “sudo python install.py --production” from the frappe user account per the instructions)
Then the instruction set goes into the last 2 topics:
What will the script do?
Here it briefly explains the 4 steps the script fulfills.
How do I start ERPNext?
This is the step where I am posing my question. Since I used a production install, am I now also supposed to follow the link to “Setup Production”
And run the command listed there: sudo bench setup production
This is where I get confused. So right after the install, am I supposed to follow the link and run the command to setup the production server, or am I supposed to just log into the ERPNext system as Administrator and begin my configuring of the system users, accounts, etc?
If I am not supposed to run the bench setup command, then why is it part of the instructions section?
If I am supposed to run it, then what happens if I had already logged in as Administrator to the ERPNext system before doing this step?
Or, is this command used to change the server type from a developer server to a production server, and if so, then why is it part of the easy install instructions and not listed elsewhere under a different topic?
Some guidance here please.
