I am currently making myself familiar with developing modules for v7.0. I have started with a clean database and have added the modules from the local addons directory that I thought fitting. For the missing features I have started to write a new module, but I don't know how to add this to my existing database, because it seems that the list of available modules is created in the database at creation time in 'ir_module_module' from the addons parameter in the command line, doesn't it?
What is the best way of adding new modules to existing databases? Thanks! Romanus
The list is created initially when the database is created.
OpenERP scans the addons path for folders containing valid modules.
If you add a new module, make sure it is in the addons path (or edit the addons path), reboot the server, and then you can use the menu sequence:
Settings --> Modules --> Update Modules List
If you can't see this menu, make sure your user is a member of the Technical Features group.
