I think odoo refuse to start with user root. You should check the logfile

This piece will update it auto for you. (I am using it for odoo v8) Make sure you delete the old one first.

sudo rm -f /etc/init.d/you-odoo-script. Then copy and paste this in sh chmod +x and run it.


sudo sh -c “wget \”http://www.theopensourcerer.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/odoo-server\” -O /etc/init.d/odoo-server” sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/odoo-server

sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/odoo-server

sudo chown root: /etc/init.d/odoo-server

sudo update-rc.d odoo-server defaults

sudo /etc/init.d/odoo-server start

# END now type ps aux | grep odoo

Enjoy :)

ps: Not sure if it is just a copy and paste problem but you do notice that your script starts with !/bin/sh and not  #!/bin/sh
