Try this command …

sudo apt-get -y install supervisor

HI @Palle

The server can start and run.

The warning is change to

WARN: restarting supervisor failed. Use bench restart to retry.

(It’s run on WSL)

I have the same problem, solved with:

sudo apt-get -y install supervisor

than the new problem

yarn run v1.22.19
$ node esbuild --production --apps erpnext --run-build-command
File                                                        Size

Done in 0.90s.
$ supervisorctl restart frappe:
error: <class 'PermissionError'>, [Errno 13] Permission denied: file: /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/supervisor/xmlrpc.py line: 560
WARN: restarting supervisor failed. Use `bench restart` to retry.

How can i set the working permission?

I’m facing the same problem. I hope someone could provide us with a solution soon.

I’m also encountering same issue… anyway out???


Here is the fix.
First, install supervisor if you didn’t already did it as mentioned above.


Add “chown= yourfrappeusername:yourfrappeusername” in superisord.conf below chmod=0700.
Don’t forget to replace yourfrappeusername by your actual one.

sudo nano /etc/supervisor/supervisord.conf

chown= yourfrappeusername:yourfrappeusername

sudo -A systemctl restart supervisor

Hi, I tried this but am still getting an error

Did you use this command ? :

sudo -A systemctl restart supervisor

Try this instead if it didn’t work :

sudo service supervisor stop
sudo service supervisor start

I never tried a restart with the “supervisorctl restart frappe” command, could you try “bench restart” in your bench repository to see if the same error happens in this case ?
