su - erpnext


vim ~/.bashrc
add this lines

source ~/.bashrc

sudo mkdir /opt/bench


sudo chown -R erpnext:erpnext /opt/bench


cd /opt/bench

npm install node-sass@6.0.1

pip3 install --user frappe-bench
 bench init frappe-bench --frappe-branch version-13


cd frappe-bench
 sed -i '/web:/ s/$/ --noreload/' Procfile
 bench start >/tmp/bench_log &


bench new-site yourhost.example.com

Install wkhtmltopdf herer if yum not working
sudo wget https://github.com/wkhtmltopdf/packaging/releases/download/0.12.6-1/wkhtmltox**  ( Find the best link here is one https://wkhtmltopdf.org/downloads.html )
sudo rpm -Uvh wkhtmltox-0.12.6-1.centos***

----------------

source env/bin/activate
npm install sass
npm install node-sass
deactivate
-----------------

At this point we have a frappe site running - bench start and you will get the website on port 8000. But ERPNext not yet installed. Let's continue



bench get-app erpnext --branch version-13
 bench --site site1.local install-app erpnext  ( if you have more than one site mention site name like " bench --site site1.local install-app erpnext "


bench start


Now you have ERPNext on port 8000. ( http://yourhost.example.com:8000 )

You can run the setup-wizard on the browser. ( Setup-wizard often fail. Restart it again and again. This issue has been there since ages and yet to be fixed )


----- NOW deploy it in production mode - on nginx server -------


------
bench setup supervisor --yes
bench setup nginx

sudo ln -s `pwd`/config/supervisor.conf /etc/supervisord.d/frappe-bench.ini
sudo ln -s `pwd`/config/nginx.conf /etc/nginx/conf.d/frappe-bench.conf

sudo service supervisord restart
sudo service nginx restart


sudo systemctl enable supervisord
 sudo systemctl enable nginx


restart the system - init 6
