Can't connect to external database

I'm trying to connect Odoo with a Postgresql db that's located in another machine. I set the new database hostname (I have its endpoint), port, user and password in "openerp-server.conf", however, when I launch odoo.py I get  

2016-03-03 11:51:35,170 1284 INFO ? openerp: database hostname: localhost

2016-03-03 11:51:35,170 1284 INFO ? openerp: database port: 5432

If I lauch odoo with the database hostname and port arguments, it works fine, so I'm guessing odoo is not looking at the openerp-server.conf that I changed. 

in odoo/debian/init I have changed the CONFIG attribute and it points to the new openerp-server.config

Do I need to change anything else?

Thank you
