"Could not get content" after trying to install module

I downloaded a module called product_by_supplier to my Ubuntu directory /opt/odoo/odoo/addons and unzipped it there. After trying to access the Odoo server through web browser I got following:


I then removed the .zip and the unzipped folder from /opt/odoo/odoo/addons, but with no difference.

The log file shows:


and the server:

The server error looks like your real problem. Odoo is telling you that there is already an application running on port 8069 (perhaps another Odoo?). This is the reason that you cannot launch this Odoo.

What did I do to make this happen and what do I do to make Odoo run again?

and also remove the zip file from addons directory.

Killing the process did not fix the problem. It seems that I've run the server on a Ubuntu user named "odoo", and I'm not able to log in to that. So when I try to connect to the server it says that there is no database user with the same name as the user that I run the server on. Is it possible that when I added a .zip and a new folder to /opt/odoo/odoo/addons, some config file got messed up? Since now it can't find this web.assets_backend thing.

using following command you can kill the other running process of odoo

ps - ax|grep openerp

that command gives you the process list of running for odoo

kill -9  PROCESS ID

you can kill the older odoo running process on your machine.
