Addons path in my openerp-server.conf isn't exist

on 1/2/16, 4:56 AM 671 views

I need to install new modules in Odoo 8 so I fetched the openerp-server.conf which is located in odoo/debian/openerp-server.conf. Here's its content:

; This is the password that allows database operations:
; admin_passwd = admin
db_host = False
db_port = False
db_user = odoo
db_password = False
addons_path = /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/addons

I went to addons_path through my terminal, and found out that there is no such file or directory /openerp/addons inside dist-packages.

Is my insallation of Odoo is corrupted?.. Should I reinstall it? If so, how do I clean uninstall Odoo 8 from my Ubuntu 15.04

Okay I found two directories with name addons
1st is located in odoo directory "This is the directory where I installed odoo"

2nd is located in odoo/openerp

which one should I use?!

The one where the addons are really located. How did you install Odoo in order to get 2 addons directories? Did you check the access rights of the addons directory? Can you provide the full paths, any log entries?
