Bench Installation


I am new to Frappe. I follow the instructions to install the Bench on Ubuntu 14.04.

sudo python --develop

I am having the following error:

TASK [Set root Password] *******************************************************
fatal: [localhost]: FAILED! => {"changed": true, "cmd": ["mysqladmin", "-u", "root", "password", "abcd"], "delta": "0:00:00.004410", "end": "2016-08-11 08:18:27.054757", "failed": true, "rc": 1, "start": "2016-08-11 08:18:27.050347", "stderr": "\u0007mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed\nerror: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'", "stdout": "", "stdout_lines": [], "warnings": []}

What I should do? Please help.

Best regards

Sorry, the installer doesn’t support “univention” "4. Aborting installation!

i got message anyone help me to install the erpnext

@Kevin What are you trying to install on? Digital Ocean VPS? Local VM?

@kumaranvnr What are you running the installer on? The installer only works on Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04, CentOS 7+, Debian 7 to 8 and MacOS X.

I have the same error than @Kevin

I’m installing ERPnext on Ubuntu 14.04

Do you have a mysql / mariadb root password already set? The installer requires that the root password not be set or it will fail.

you can clear the root password with the following:

mysqladmin -u root -p<currentpw> password ''

from the command line

I couldn’t find the way to fix the error. I install a local VM and run the erpnext from local VM.
I follow the instructions from
It works well.
