New install on Ubuntu 18.04 fails at


I’m having a hard time installing Kegbot Server on an Ubuntu 18.04 server. I’m using this guide. I’ve downloaded the ZIP file here.

I’ve installed the dependencies without issues, creating the database works well. I got stuck at the setup script ‘’. It throwing all kind off errors.

I hope someone can point me in the right direction

Writing settings to /home/kegbot/.kegbot/ …
Finishing setup …
Running command: kegbot syncdb --noinput -v 0
