on 1/15/15, 11:01 AM 6,872 views

I created the folder in training openerp / addons and 4 file (init, openerp, training.py, and XML), and when I run the server with the camande "./openerp-server - addons-path = .. / openerp / addons "  it does not work,
there is a solution?


Is it v7 or ODOO?

Hello Othmane 

You need to give addons path like below.

python odoo.py --addons addons

Because you have put your module inside odoo/openerp/addons so from above code you can get all modules.

But if you have a diffrent modules path so you have to do :

if your module is in folder_a/modules

python odoo.py --addons addons,../../folder_a/modules

Hope that this answer will help you.

Please don't hesitate to ask any question regarding this.

Thank You

Make sure that the addons directory you created is also readable by the odoo (openerp) server. On unix system you can do this by:

chown -R odoo:odoo /opt/odoo/custom/addons

replace the odoo:odoo with the user and group information the server is running under. Also adjust the path to yours.

odoo.py --addons addons work, but when i use python odoo.py --addons addons,../../folder_a/modules dont work, and this is the error Usage: odoo.py [options] odoo.py: error: option --addons-path: no such directory: '../addons/Mylibrary2'

Right now your module is in odoo/openerp/addons directory so you just need to put "odoo.py --addons addons" and update module list with technical setting.
