Hello All,

I recently installed IIS on Windows Server 2008, with OpenERP 7. By default, the localhost opens up the IIS7 homepage with the welcome logo.

Now I would like to add the OpenERP to the IIS, so that when the user goes on for example:

erp.domain.com it should translate to the server's : localhost:8069

I have dedicated IP.

But it is not working.. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Joshua.

Shut down IIS (go to services, World Wide Web Publishing - stop. Set it to disabled)- you don't need IIS - OpenERP is its own web server.

Then find your conf file:, e.g. c:\Program Files (x86)\OpenERP 7.0-20130402-231639\Server\server\openerp-server.conf

edit it, find this line:

xmlrpc_port = 8069

change it to

xmlrpc_port = 80

hit save, and restart your openerp server in windows services.

In your log file (openerp-server.log) you should now see:

2013-04-03 12:30:03,357 2464 INFO ? openerp: OpenERP server is running, waiting for connections... 2013-04-03 12:30:03,637 2464 INFO ? openerp.service.wsgi_server: HTTP service (werkzeug) running on

And you should be able to access it without the :8069.

If you need to continue running IIS on port 80, you won't be able to simultaneously run OpenERP on 80.

Hope that helps.

Hey thenon, many thanks for this.. any idea how to do this on ubuntu ? thanks... Joshua

You'll prob need to edit /etc/openerp-server.conf or /etc/init.d/openerp-server, and of course disable apache from running on 80 if you have that.
