Install frappe v12 & v13 on same server

Can I Install frappe v12 & v13 on same server?
I had a node version conflict when tried that.


Technically you can achieve this by creating two separate frappe-bench folders (which includes the apps, sites, etc.) on the same server and having multi-tenancy on.

There are threads that explain the pro-cons of these if you search through the forum.

Here are some more helpful links on the topic:

If you want native bench you may have to use nvm instead of nodejs that comes with apt-get or dnf

It can also be done using containers.


Docker Swarm

Thanks Revant. Will try that.

Thanks Kenneth.

I already separated the bench but the node module are conflict.
