Hi, I install the library python-passlib and it work fine for me.

Thanks antoinehuvelle

Hi There,

I had the same problem minutes ago and then checked my server logs and found this:

  • the python-passlib library wasn’t installed on my server (but you don’t see it on server launch, only when you try to create your database)
  • My linux user didn’t have the rights to create/modify anything in /var/lib/odoo/filestore, I changed it.
