How do I install OpenERP 8 Dev on any applicable droplet?

  • Posted May 16, 2014

I’ve tried a few different options scripts or following line item by line item but ultimately openerp doesn’t show as on when running service --status-all and isn’t accessible at the server’s IP address with port 8069 at the end. Kind of at a loss. Looks like there’s several different ways of installing, a .deb or launchpad. Had a bit of failure with both though unfortunately.

There seem to be a few issues with the packages for OpenERP 8 on Ubuntu, but it is still possible to get it running. First install the package: <br> <br><pre> <br>echo “deb ./” >> /etc/apt/sources.list <br>apt-get update <br>apt-get install openerp <br></pre> <br> <br>Then make sure there is a home directory for the openerp user: <br> <br><pre> <br>mkdir /home/openerp <br>chown openerp /home/openerp <br>chgrp openerp /home/openerp <br></pre> <br> <br>Next, make sure there is an openerp database user: <br> <br><pre> <br>sudo -u postgres createuser -s openerp <br></pre> <br> <br>And then restart both OpenERP and Apache: <br> <br><pre> <br>service openerp restart <br>service apache2 restart <br></pre> <br> <br>Now you should be able to access it at: http://your.ip.address:8069
