Having an issue with Odoo 9 enterprise:

When using the database manager, this error appears when backing up:

Database backup error: Postgres subprocess ('/usr/bin/pg_dump', '--no-owner', '--file=/tmp/tmptv_tLH/dump.sql', u'mydb') error 1

Here is the output from Odoos log:

2016-04-18 14:08:45,067 28275 INFO mydb openerp.addons.base.ir.ir_autovacuum: GC'd 1 user log entries

raise Exception('Postgres subprocess %s error %s' % (args2, rc))

Exception: Postgres subprocess ('/usr/bin/pg_dump', '--no-owner', '--file=/tmp/tmptv_tLH/dump.sql', u'mydb') error 1

- Nothing appears in postgres log. Creating a database works fine, as

does deleting.

- I do not have GIS installed.

- This is a fresh install.

- I can run the pg_dump from my commandline as the same user and it

works fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Found the solution:

Amazon RDS defaults to postgres 9.4.7. When I spun up a new instance with 9.3.5, I got segmentation faults. Upgrading to 9.3.6 and everything works fine.

check your server. may be include two postgresql servers

it make pg_dump function conflicted

In my case

$ sudo apt-get --purge remove postgresql-client-9.5

$ sudo service postgresql restart

$ sudo service odoo restart

now you can use odoo frontend view to do a backup/restore function

Note: before removing your postgrrsql server besure you don't select which's odoo use
