I am planning to implement ERPnext with end users in India, on a private server. Would like to receive suggestions from developers and users about their experiences wrt performance with various VPS service providers. Also any minimum specifics required in configuration to get optimum speed and performance.
yes, it is best to get the managed ERPNext even just for the cost of server and included support alone.
As an implementer - you will still have a few methods to earn. (deployment setup, custom reports, etc, see erpnext.com)
@rmehta - sir, i think we need to clarify some things on the faq?
esp. this one: “There is a one time 30% commission on each customer you sign-up at erpnext.com after your first one.”
is there a system where we can track referrals? also, i think we need to improve this incentive into something recurring. just my thoughts.
I’m using RAMnode (extremely fast 2gb RAM, 2 cores, SSD, USD$17/month) and installed the ERPnext Bitnami stack. Up and running perfectly in 10 minutes. Plus I installed nginx with SSL. ERPnext runs lightning fast and it’s easy to backup because it’s all contained in 1 directory. I was worried about the overhead of Bitnami, but so far it’s no problem.
I looked at DigitalOcean and Linode but got a better deal. So far no complaints.
I would have preferred Docker, but I couldn’t get it to work with SSL.
Can you give me set by step instructions how you installed. I installed bitnami stack on 1&1 cloud server and everything works well except email smtp settings don’t get saved and I can’t receive or send email. Thank you
I would say keep away from A2 hosting. Best I found is Vultr mainly because of 2 reasons
Daily backup available on scheduled time defined by you. Charges are extra for this. Digital Ocean does weekly backup.
Create multiple users on Vultr site for managing servers. Users can be given various rights. Digital Ocean charges for creating team members.
Funny, I thought it was just me that got tired of trying to get an A2 Hosted VPS server to work. I gave up after about 2 weeks and moved to InterServer for the same reasons that you chose Vultr.
The only thing I can say is when shopping for a VPS host, make sure you get the KVM type of VPS server because the other types do NOT have swapfile space and do not allow you to allocate it yourself either.
The KVM type of VPS server typically also will cost a little more than the standard linux server, but without swap space you will be fighting an uphill battle.
Also, consider the linux OS when you are trying to decide on a permanent production server. Some recent events have illuminated some short-comings of Ubuntu 16.04 and older. Please refer to this post for a more details, but it comes down to how much time you want to put into manually scheduled maintenance for the OS…
Ubuntu is great at some things, but needs improvement in how it handles it’s own updates.
