Run ERPNext from GitHub by cloning

How to run erpnext project if I cloned it from github.

@megha007 do you mean a custom app you downloaded from github ?

I mean from here GitHub - frappe/erpnext: Free and Open Source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
if I con this project from here so how can I run it on my ubunut server.

Do you mean that you want to make a complete copy of the entire repository and set it up in your own github account so you can then install from your own copy?

Actually I want complete clone of repository and run it on my ubuntu server.

@megha007 I think he just want to install erpnext on his local machine .

Hmm… That would require you to be able to setup a github like environment in order to use git commands to access your new server.

Creating a github like repository on a private server is beyond the scope of this forum.

Why not just use the github service on their already hosted system? It is free to setup an account.


Checkout GitHub - frappe/bench: CLI to manage Multi-tenant deployments for Frappe apps

If you have read the README of frappe/erpnext or even did a basic web search, you could have got that answer!

  • To understand & participate in development, use local clone of github repos.

  • To install and run your test use-cases on VM, use Frappe Bench. Use bench Bench Manager for Frappe Bench UI.

  • To develop modules, see the guide Frappe Framework

The ERPNext repo is an app based on Frappe Framework. It needs all the dependencies preinstalled. So directly cloning and running on VM is not possible. As you learn further you may find right ways.

Yes, that’s exactly what I need to do, but my attempts failed.
I don’t know how to do it right!
Can you help me please…

I want to do it. Can you show me step by step?
