Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I have managed to install odoo 8 on my own server, is there any tutorial howto instell the community versión of Odoo 9, that seems to be available at http://nightly.odoo.com/master/nightly/src/odoo_9.0alpha1.latest.zip? Any adapted installer scripts already or tutorial that sums up well required libraries to run odoo 9 on ubuntu (is 14.14 recommendet or 14.15?). Thanks a lot
I installed in this way.
#download and uncompress Odoo, change YYYYMMdd to match the name of your extracted Odoo folder
tar xvf odoo_9.0alpha1.latest.tar.gz
mv odoo-9.0alpha1-YYYYMMdd server
#install python-virtualenv if you don't have it, I use Ubuntu
apt-get install python-virtualenv -y
#install this libraries needed for correctly install the requirements
apt-get install libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev libldap2-dev libsasl2-dev libssl-dev -y
apt-get install postgresql-server-dev-X.Y
#create a virtualenv
mkdir -p /opt/virtualenv/odoo-9.0
#activate the virtualenv
#install Odoo v9 requirements
pip install -r /opt/odoo/server/requirements.txt
pip install flanker
pip install ofxparser
#deactivate the virtualenv
#install nodejs and require modules
apt-get install nodejs npm
ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/node
npm install -g less
npm install -g less-plugin-clean-css
That's all I think. To run Odoo v9 using the virtualenv you have 2 options
1- Activate the virtualenv like before and run:
python /opt/odoo/server/odoo.py --config /path/to/config
2- Directly use the python in the virtualenv
/opt/virtualenv/odoo-9.0/bin/python /opt/odoo/server/odoo.py --config /path/to/config
The config file for Odoo is where you put Odoo options such as database conections options or add others addons modules to the addons path or specify other xmlrpc_port to run Odoo. Could be something like this:
admin_passwd = admin
db_host = localhost
db_port = 5432
db_user = odoo
db_password = odoo
xmlrpc_port = 8069
addons_path = /optodoo/server/openerp/addons,/opt/odoo/extra/addons
email_from = email@example.com
In the addons_path option you could put a comma separated paths to addons folders
Hope this helps

Hi Dieter, the above link was working when I was posting the answer first time. Anyway the installation is similar to that of v8, only difference is some additional python libraries, which you can easily install. There is a wonderful tutorial on v8 installation, you can just refer that:
I am just extracting the major steps to set odoo 9 ready for development environment.
Step 1: Install and configure the database server, PostgreSQL
sudo apt-get install postgresql
Then configure the Odoo user on postgres:
First change to the postgres user so we have the necessary privileges to configure the database.
sudo su - postgres
Now create a new database user. This is so Odoo has access rights to connect to PostgreSQL and to create and drop databases. Remember what your choice of password is here; you will need it later on:
createuser --createdb --username postgres --no-createrole --no-superuser --pwprompt systemusername
Enter password for new role: ********
Enter it again: ********
You put the username of current logged in user.
Finally exit from the postgres user account:
Step 2: Install the system library as odoo 9 depends on node-less:
sudp apt-get install python-pip python-dev libevent-dev gcc libxml2-dev libxslt-dev node-less libldap2-dev libssl-dev
Step 3: Install the necessary Python libraries for the server.
The following command will install all the required libraries for Odoo 9.
cd /tmp && wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/odoo/odoo/9.0/requirements.txt && sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
On the above step, if you get an error in between, some dependent library might be missing, so just install that missing library shown and redo the above step. (for eg: sudo apt-get install python-ldap)
Step 4: Download odoo 9
The last step is to download odoo 9 (branch 9.0) .zip file from: https://github.com/odoo/odoo
Extract odoo-9.0.zip file, then in commandline, cd to the extracted odoo-9.0 directory and run odoo.py as follows:
python odoo.py --addons-path addons
step 5: http://localhost:8069/web
Run odoo 9
The above steps are minimal ones to run odoo 9 in development environment. For setting up in production, you can refer the above detailed tutorial link of theopenresourcerer. You just need to change the steps that download odoo file and libraries, other things you can follow the same.
If you have any issues with the installation, I can help you to resolve. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Hope this helps!
I did that, but could not finish, here my observations following your guide:
1. once you wrote by accident 2 times apt-get install (that was easiest ;-).
2. pip install -r /opt/odoo/server/requirements.txt
throws: Error: You need to install postgresql-server-dev-X.Y for building a server-side extension or libpq-dev for building a client-side application.
I ignored and moved on
3. In lst step, what config file you mean? Howto locate it?
4. You missed to mention howto fire installation and what would be standard admin, since there was no step to put user or pass
Thanks for your help!
