Need ERPNext Complete installation guide for ubuntu

Hi i am very new to erpnext.
I need to do local setup, i am using ubuntu 14.04.
I am not getting from where i should start.
Can you please share some necessary links to install complete erpnext in local machine?

can i get the source code of erpnext in my local machine after installation?


Just login to your system. Setup your users and stuff with guides from Digital Ocean or Linode. Once you get the basics setup Follow the steps here GitHub - frappe/bench: CLI to manage Multi-tenant deployments for Frappe apps

In short enter the commands (as root user) :

python --production --user frappe

Best of luck! If it’s too much, perhaps look into having the team manage it for you. ERPNext Pricing 2022

Any questions, let us know!

I’d followed this link and setup ERPNext locally (on Xenserver VM). It was pretty straight forward without much hiccup. The only change I made from the mentioned link was to use internet option instead of local option on mail setup, as we are using an external mail server. Make sure you don’t encrypt your home directory during the Ubuntu server installation. Otherwise, you could probably encounter issues like mine: Admin password is not working. Good Luck!

Thanks for sharing the links, I will try to install now.
Can i get the complete source code after installation? so that i can customize it according to our need?

Do i need to install any IDE for this??

I’ve just tried that using Ubuntu 16.04.
I get this:

E: Failed to fetch 404 Not Found

Which is not goo. I’m trying to evaluate ERPNext and Odoo for a prospective client. I had no trouble getting Odoo up and running, but I am really battling with ERPNext!

I’ve just tried again from scratch. This is what I get:
