  • Mint Linux system, Thanks for your response, i will try from magento docs once again and if then also wont work, will let you know. – Manish Soni Nov 15 '19 at 8:58

I have installed it again and now this time, i have not included this option in command "--backend-frontname="admin"".

as i have checked dev docs installation link and in that the above option not there so i removed and try again.

And its working now with auto generated admin url.
