This is not a question, but a script to install OpenERP.

Here is the Gist with the script to install OpenERP 7 on a Digital Ocean Droplet with CentOS 6.4 32 bits.

And here is the script. If you know how to fix the encoding pgsql problems with the same script, please let me know. Thanks!

If there is an error about a encoding UTF8 template when creating the company at OpenErp, use the following:

sudo su - postgres

psql -U postgres

update pg_database set datallowconn = TRUE where datname = ‘template0’;

\c template0

update pg_database set datistemplate = FALSE where datname = ‘template1’;

drop database template1;

create database template1 with template = template0 encoding = ‘UTF8’;

update pg_database set datistemplate = TRUE where datname = ‘template1’;

\c template1

update pg_database set datallowconn = FALSE where datname = ‘template0’;
