Hi guys, I'm totally new to OpenERP. I have tried for few days now to install it mannually, that didnot work, so I used the script from the forum. All install went well sofar I could follow. but now I have 2 problems.

  1. I'm getting an big error as soon as I open the page in my browser.

  2. I'm unable to login. I see the red page of OpenERP, then the login box, and in the right top I see a field saying Database, when I click on manage databases at the lower left corner of login box nothing happens. it goes to a blanc page.

here is the error that i get :

Client Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/openerp-7.020130209002058-py2.6.egg/openerp/addons/web/http.py", line 195, in dispatch response["result"] = method(self, **self.params) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/openerp-7.020130209002058-py2.6.egg/openerp/addons/web/controllers/main.py", line 709, in getlist return dblist(req) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/openerp-7.020130209002058-py2.6.egg/openerp/addons/web/controllers/main.py", line 88, in dblist dbs = proxy.list() File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/openerp-7.020130209002058-py2.6.egg/openerp/addons/web/session.py", line 31, in proxymethod result = self.session.send(self.servicename, method, *args) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/openerp-7.020130209002058-py2.6.egg/openerp/addons/web/session.py", line 104, in send raise xmlrpclib.Fault(openerp.tools.ustr(e), formattedinfo)

here is the install script that I have used, its an CENT OS 6.3 Installation. I have edited the download links because otherwise I was unable to post it here, cause my karma was to low to post links.

The text "('AccessDenied', openerp.tools.ustr(e))" strongly suggests problems with your access to the database.

You should ensure that you can connect to PostgreSQL using psql on the command line specifying the IP address in the command. (Personally, I prefer to try access from a different machine entirely.)

Can you access your OpenERP database with a command line instruction like this?

psql -h x.x.x.x -U openErpUID openErpDB

Until you can, you will achieve nothing trying to access via OpenERP itself

I recommend you Google some postgres getting started tutorials. Eg; http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1471571/how-to-configure-postgresql-for-the-first-time

In particular you should be confident with the necessary changes in "pg_hba.conf" and "postgresql.conf".

Well I have created the users, and databases via webmin, and gived the needed permissions, and yes I can acces it,

[root@localhost ~]# su openerp [openerp@localhost root]$ psql could not change directory to "/root" psql (8.4.13) Type "help" for help.

Alright, the system is working, now I know what the problem was, at the initial first screen after install I was typing in my own password, while it was not righ, it was just "admin" the default. But the way to this was long, cause I have reinstalled all again, from zero, Ubuntu server etc...

Do you consider that your problem was resolved? If so you'll help others but indicating that with the "answered" check mark

now, I have found out that I didnot have any postgress installed, so I have installed postgres server, and now it works, but when I'm creating the database on the first page of OPEN ERP, it shows me this error :

OpenERP Server Error
