Hi all, I'm new for OpenERP 7, i installed OpenERP 7 in Ubuntu, it is running successfully. Database created successfully, but i cant get backup, Restore, Delete. When i running the OpenERP-server this error will occur. ERROR Resume openerp.sql_db: Connection to the database failed Traceback (most recent call last): File "/opt/openerp/server/openerp/sql_db.py", line 440, in borrow result = psycopg2.connect(dsn=dsn, connection_factory=PsycoConnection) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/psycopg2/__init__.py", line 179, in connect connection_factory=connection_factory, async=async) OperationalError: FATAL: database "resume" does not exist

here resume is my database name. i tried more times to solve this problem but i can't till now. Help me for this problem.

Thanks & Regards Sridharan G Chennai

Here are two feeble guesses:

  1. Resume might be a reserved word in OpenERP, Python or PostgreSQL. Use a different name.
  2. I see Resume and resume. Is there upper/lower case confusion, maybe?

Note that having many separate databases is not at all "expensive". What happens when you create a new database? This might help : https://accounts.openerp.com/forum/Help-1/question/11158/

Hi Bramwell, Thanks for your reply, but other itself, it didn't accept, same error message... Any installation problem or any other problem.

" . . . but other itself . . . " ? Sorry I don't know what you mean. What steps did you take to solve the problem? New name? New database? New install? If you have the possibility to do so, I'd strongly recommend you start completely from scratch, if possible from a fresh install of Ubuntu,
