Hi dear people,

I'm really new to openERP. Our firm installed OpenERP on a Server and is testing v8. We installed the new Website Builder. And I ask myself. Where does all the files reside? All css and files and php stuff of the Website. I just had a look at our server via command line, but I find only a share/OpenERP folder with 3 folders: addons, filestore, sessions. No hint to any module data. Where is this residing? Any answers are so welcome, because I need a very fast introduction into this system and I'm beginning with an already set up system. Kinda thrown into.

Thanks a lot!


How did you installed Odoo? What is your operational system? Odoo is not written in php, its written in python...

Hi Malte, To understand theme structure i'd recommend taking a look at https://github.com/odoo/design-themes . The theme_clean and theme_zen modules are already working in the 8.0 branch (however theme_gourmand is not). I'd also recommend taking at look at the following links: https://github.com/odoo/odoodays-2014/blob/master/create_themes/index.rst https://github.com/odoo/odoodays-2014/blob/master/tde_snippet/index.rst

i'd recommend taking a look at your /etc/odoo-server.conf or /etc/openerp-server.conf file to see where the default addons directory is located. You can add a path to custom addons directories (such as the design-themes directory) there. There's an explanation of the .conf file here: http://www.vionblog.com/openerp-server-conf-for-openerp-7-explained/, and you can find help regarding Odoo v8.0 setup here: https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/how-to-install-odoo-from-github-on-ubuntu-14-04-for-testing-purposes-only-ie-not-for-production-52627

Some people call me a karma whore, I only ask for 10 points if you like my answer and 15 if I happen to get it correct.

Hi Malte,

Odoo works through an addon module system.  The new website module is a plugin that relys upon bootstrap, css, javascript and python.  So where is your data?  Depends on what you are looking for...

Bootstrap ~odoo/addons/web/static/lib/bootstrap (dynamic html/css/js framework)
Bootswatch ~odoo/addons/website/static/src/css/bootswatch (website templates)
Images ~odoo/addons/website/static/src/img or (stored in the database depending on your settings)
Blog/Event/Forum/livechat/etc ~odoo/addon/website_MODULE (website module)

There is a good start.

really great answer:) thanks man! this helps a lot, because when you begin with Odoo or any other web application you first have to know where to search:) thanks Stephen!
