Hi All,

I'm new to Odoo and now installing Odoo on ubuntu 14.04. Server is up and now when I try to create a database in the webbrowser I get the following errors. I need help on how to solve this issue and where did I go wrong?

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/openerp/http.py", line 476, in _handle_exception return super(JsonRequest, self)._handle_exception(exception) File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/openerp/http.py", line 495, in dispatch result = self._call_function(**self.params) File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/openerp/http.py", line 312, in _call_function return self.endpoint(*args, **kwargs) File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/openerp/http.py", line 685, in __call__ return self.method(*args, **kw) File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/openerp/http.py", line 360, in response_wrap response = f(*args, **kw) File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/addons/web/controllers/main.py", line 687, in create params['create_admin_pwd']) File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/openerp/http.py", line 759, in proxy_method result = dispatch_rpc(self.service_name, method, args) File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/openerp/http.py", line 93, in dispatch_rpc result = dispatch(method, params) File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/openerp/service/db.py", line 62, in dispatch security.check_super(passwd) File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/openerp/service/security.py", line 33, in check_super raise openerp.exceptions.AccessDenied() AccessDenied: Access denied.

need to give permissions to your odoo folder

try in /otp/  "chmod 777 -R odoo"  command

Thanks for the answer, it did make to go away the exception but I get a different error now 2014-08-27 05:45:37,199 3410 INFO None werkzeug: - - [27/Aug/2014 05:45:37] "POST /web/database/create HTTP/1.1" 200 - and on the browser this is being displayed "XmlHttpRequestError " Do you think that I need to give permissions somewhere. Did I miss out anything. Please let me know. Thanks Archana
