Error with clean installation


I have a problem with clean installation of erpnext, I’m trying to install on Ubuntu 16.04, but doesn’t work (with --develop flag)…console throws me:

Anyone can help me to solve this?

Another question… how to install a private repo of ERPNEXT with my changes on a fresh installation?, I don’t want the official repo.


Read this thread, might be similar issue.


In above case, I can see that the error happened since node was not able to install pre-requisites for socket-io on your machine. You might try re-running the script to see if node installs socket-io or else you can try running bench setup socketio from frappe-bench folder.

To install private repo you will have to do following,

1. bench get-app erpnext <path_to_your_github_erpnext_repo>
2. bench --site <site_name> install-app erpnext

My solution was execute “” in a new user named frappe, mi default user or root doesn’t work with this script.

Thanx for your help and instructions to install my custom repo :slight_smile:
