Problem installing my customized erp in another site

Hi Guys ,

I customized the standrad erpnext module to my requirement and pushed it in my git repo , I cloned it successfully and installed it in a newly created site site3.local , but I am unable to complete the setup , I am getting this message when setting up my site ,

Type cannot be "Company". It should be one of "", "OEM", "Tier 1", "Tier 2", "Tier 3", ""

Could anyone help me come out of this issue . Please

@ragav you must never edit the standard erpnext code. Create a new app and put your customization there. The above errors looks like a select field is being set with incorrect value.

Thanks a lot for the quick response @neilLasrado . I am aware that the standard modules should never be edited , I do have other apps which I created and installed it separately , here since I did not require much customization , I edited the standard module , the only modification that I did was I modified the options of a select field . I uninstalled erpnext and reinstalled the site site3.local , now when installing I am getting this error , please help

   ommi@ommi:~$ bench --site site3.local install-app erpnext

@ragav on setup wizard complete there is a script that creates a customer and sets the customer_type as company.

Thanks for quick response @neilLasrado . Now if I edit the above file in the frappe-bench folder , will it affect my other sites ? Or should I edit the file in my repo and clone it again ?

Thanks in advance

Hi @neilLasrado . Thanks for the help I edited the file in my repo accordingly , but how do I uninstall erpnext from site3.local , it returns an error ?
