I am not a coder. I want to learn how to deploy the 1-click ERPNxt app.

Hello! I am just a beginner and I don’t know much about terminal commands or to use linux through the terminal. I am eager to learn but not able to find resources. However, right now I need help with creating a 1-click ERPNext installation through marketplace. I have created the ERPNext droplet but I have no idea how to proceed further.

It would be very helpful ig you could help me out in a step by step manner on how to do it. Thanks!



I ran the command but the problem still exists.

frappe@inv-erp:~/frappe-bench$ pip install -U -e $(bench src)

Hi there @gauravsk1302,

There are a few things that I could suggest starting with at first:

  • Learn how to connect to your server via SSH. You can do that by following the step by step instructions from the documentation here:

  • Then once you know how to access your server, I would recommend learning some of the Linux basic commands to help you navigate through your files. I could suggest these two step by step tutorials here:

  • With that information in hand, you would feel more comfortable working with the terminal. As a next step as you are starting going to be using the ERPNext 1-Click Droplet, I would recommend going through this Bench Cheatsheet

Hope that this helps and if you have any further questions feel free to post them here. Regards, Bobby
