How can I change the name of my database. Can I do this without programming?

Hello, using postgresql: "ALTER DATABASE name RENAME TO newname" or you can duplicate the database with a new name in the database options, login screen.

Make sure you shut down the OpenERP server first if you use the ALTER DATABASE option.
