This happens while creating an employee. I have installed it using How to Install ERPNext Version 14 in Ubuntu 22.04 - A step by Step Guide - Code with Karani

How to fix it?

@Jithin_K_T While installing the apps the bench must be in running. Otherwise some doctypes are not installed properly. So try to remove that hrms app and install it again.

Ok let me try that. Thank you for the reply

While doing this , ensure that bench is running.

Okay. After doing those things, let me know that is resolved or not.

No joy

To uninstall app : 1. bench --site sitename uninstall-app appname
2. Remove that folder from apps directory

To install app : 1. bench get-app hrms
2. bench --site hilltop install-app hrms

Alright, I did not remove hrms directory, let me try that

Make sure bench is in start mode

frappe@ip-172-31-43-98:~/frappe-bench$ sudo supervisorctl status
frappe-bench-redis:frappe-bench-redis-cache RUNNING pid 27542, uptime 5 days, 20:44:46
frappe-bench-redis:frappe-bench-redis-queue RUNNING pid 27543, uptime 5 days, 20:44:46
frappe-bench-web:frappe-bench-frappe-web RUNNING pid 45326, uptime 0:14:23
frappe-bench-web:frappe-bench-node-socketio FATAL Exited too quickly (process log may have details)
frappe-bench-workers:frappe-bench-frappe-long-worker-0 RUNNING pid 27548, uptime 5 days, 20:44:46
frappe-bench-workers:frappe-bench-frappe-schedule RUNNING pid 27546, uptime 5 days, 20:44:46
frappe-bench-workers:frappe-bench-frappe-short-worker-0 RUNNING pid 27547, uptime 5 days, 20:44:46

Is that it?

Open terminal and goto frappebench directory and type “bench start” and press enter.

Now open another window in terminal , goto your apps directory and do ::

To uninstall app : 1. bench --site sitename uninstall-app appname
2. Remove that folder from apps directory

To install app : 1. bench get-app hrms
2. bench --site hilltop install-app hrms

I got it. but what is sudo supervisorctl status for ?

It is used to check the status of processes managed by Supervisor

It shows bench is already running

if you erpnext installed it in version 15 then hrms must be in version 15.

If hrms is in the develop branch then apply it.

bench switch-to-branch version-15 hrms

If uninstalled or install the app then apply it.

bench get-app --branch version-15 hrms

Thank You!

Great ! Oh yeah ok let me do that.

It did not work. broke everything. Let me reinstall.
