please help me to solve this



Did you make any changes in site_config.json? please validate the site_config.json on jsonlint.com

Also, please check your current site name in sites/current_site.txt exists in sites directory.

where is it located

current_site.txt doesnot exists. what to do?

This issue occurs when frappe framework is installed without any app. Follow the steps mentioned at
ERP app install steps

Hi there,
Link is outdated/broken.
please, update with latest link (anyone)

you may want to migrate your site to Python3 :wink:

Migrated already using bench migrate-env python3 command.(before bench start)

did you do bench update --patch?

after running: bench update --patch

Backing up sites…
Patching sites…
Migrating website123
Executing erpnext.patches.v11_0.rename_production_order_to_work_order in website123
rename_field: work_order not found in Timesheet
Traceback (most recent call last):

pymysql.err.InternalError: (1054, “Unknown column ‘production_order’ in ‘field list’”)

There maybe more than one site in your setup. use following commands for the site you have installed your erpnext and custom-app.
bench use site-name (eg:- bench use eg.com)
bench serve --port (port-number)(eg :- bench serve --port 9090)
These solved my same issue.
Hope this helps.

probably, your current_site.txt file is absent in sites/ folder.
create it and add the name of your site in it.

cd sites/
touch current_site.txt
sudo nano current_site.txt
xyz.localhost (name of the site)
run your bench again (bench start)

delete the current site from your local and database. then re-install properly.

A simple solution that I found was to

  • Keep the bench running with “bench start” in a terminal windows
  • Open a new terminal window
  • bench config serve_default_site on
  • bench use your_site_name
  • Return to the previous window and restart the bench

Now the page is being served. Hope this helps.


this works

This worked for me

bench use site_name
bench start

If I have 2 site or more
How to solve that problem still happens to me?
