DataError: new encoding (UTF8) is incompatible with the encoding of the template database (SQL_ASCII)
Hi u all!
I'm trying to install openerp in a server which is running a mysql DB.
When I'm installing it, it appears a list of errors and i supose it's because of my existing DB. Can i do something to fix it or cannot i use my existing DB?
OpenERP Server Error

Thank you very much
I copy-paste solution from Tauras link.
In console run psql:
sudo -u postgres psql postgres
then in psql console execute sequence of commands:
update pg_database set datallowconn = TRUE where datname = 'template0';
update pg_database set datistemplate = FALSE where datname = 'template1';
drop database template1;
create database template1 with template = template0 encoding = 'UTF8';
update pg_database set datistemplate = TRUE where datname = 'template1';
update pg_database set datallowconn = FALSE where datname = 'template0';
(press Ctrl-D to quit from psql)
Thanks for the post this solution.
But, what's the origin of this problem?
I've reviewed into odoo code and they use postgresql template1 for createdb porpuse.
Then, is it a bug of odoo? or is a misconfiguration introduced by system's locale? or is a postgresql default configuration?
I'll appreciate your response.
