Hello everyone 

I was trying to install a module on odoo today but i got an error package not installed corretly i did a restart of the ubuntu server .

When the server turned on i tryed to acsess odoo from my browser there was nothing shown.

Then i run a comand in the terminal to check if the odoo service was runing or not with the following comand .

sudo service odoo status 

and what i get is :


Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory)

Active: inactive(dead)

can someone pleas tell what is going wrong  and how can i make it work again.

check the the log if there is any error shown if the error is from faulty module you may command or remove all xml file name in__openerp__.py also the py files in init using any editor via terminal and try to restart server and then upgrade the faulty module from terminal . if still you have problem with restarting service using 'sudo service <service name> check and make sure that your service name is odoo and then check its location if it's present then there might be problem with access so change access using chmod command

Sarga, I have this kind of same issue, I was editing some website related module xml and something went badly, no I can't connect at all. I checked that I do have the odoo database still there but this maybe some permission issue. I seem to have problems to updata all (using command ./openerp-server -d mydatabase -u all --db_user odoo). It always stacks in some point of the process.

0. Please use a meaningful title for your question.

1. Post your log entries

2. Remove the corresponding module from your addons directory

3. Do start Odoo with the -u all option (update all)

4. Hope and pray

5. If Odoo starts again, do delete the corresponding database and restore it without the faulty module
