I'm looking at OpenERP to see if it might be suitable for my needs, and have been playing around with automated upload of data, which I do by dropping and creating the "openerp" database, reloading a valid OpenERP database dump, and running SQL statements to upload the extra data.
This seems to have worked previously, but now when I try to access OpenERP after doing the upload, I get the "create database" screen, and when I do use that to create the "openerp" database, I get a message saying it already exists (which of course it does). So, what I think I need to know is how does OpenERP know whether an existing database is a valid OpenERP database? Why would it not recognise the valid database that I reloaded and added to, as an OpenERP database? I have looked at the OpenERP code (though I don't speak Python) but can't identify the code concerned.
It is very logic you get this kind of a message. I do not understand why you want something else.
Question owner's problem was that an OpenERP database in fact existed but OpenERP was telling that it did not. He now changed the method of doing the job, and now do manual backup/restore using OpenERP's normal GUI methods, as well as automated data upload. This works fine.
