Command pg_dump not found

Hello, I have Odoo 8. When I try to backup a database, I get the error "command pg_dump not found". What can I do? I have Windows 7 x64.

This always happens due to Odoo can't find where are postgresql_client installed(if it's True that is installed, perhaps you have no instalation of this packages or Odoo have no user rights to access it).

You could config the exact location of your pg_path where the postgresql_client tools are located. This could be done in your config file used to launch Odoo adding

pg_path = /path/to/postgresql/bin 

Thanks! ;)

You can try take backup from here

Log into the database as an administrator through postgre Admin III and backup your database from there.

May be this will help you.



This method to backup is the same than if I backup from the UI of Odoo? And, can I automate the backup process? Thanks!
