Auto Backup module installation

on 2/8/13, 9:53 AM 6,578 views


I'm trying to install the auto_backup module on a v7 system. I unzip the contents into the /openerp/addons/auto_backup directory but still can't figure out how to install it. I don't see it under "Installed Modules" with the installed filter removed.

What am I missing?

Hello, Your addons must be in addons_path. doc here

You must also launch the Update module list wizard under Settings (Your user must be in technical feature group to see it).

It is also possible that your module is not installable (look __openerp__.py) or broken.

Thank you. I needed to rename terp.py to openerp.py. Once I did that I was able to see and install the module.
