I am trying to install erpNext on a CentOS 7.4 VPS and I'm following the installation script here. But I get this error during installation:

Processing dependencies for pip
Finished processing dependencies for pip
Configuring CentOS services
Created symlink from /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/nginx.service to /usr/lib/systemd/system/nginx.service.
Failed to execute operation: Too many levels of symbolic links

How I do I fix this error? My guess is there's a problem with the setup file but I'm new to this so I don't know where to look.

    My guess is that /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/nginx.service is a symlink to /usr/lib/systemd/system/nginx.service which is also a symlink. – Raman Sailopal Mar 13 '18 at 14:40

This is because your service is using symbolic link so remove symbolic link and try.

It should work
