on 9/13/14, 1:07 AM 1,168 views

when I want Backup OpenERP DB, I see this error:

I can not understand what's the problem??

Thanks .

I would recommend using pg_dump directly on the postgres server. Does that run without error?

Better to use pgAdmin to backup and restore.

Did you check your memory of the server.?

Because it's complaining about a MemoryError.
