I have installed odoo-8 one month ago. I want to keep odoo-8 with new code from github or any other sources. How can i do this?. Does it works fine simply download the code and replace /opt/odoo/ with new odoo folder?. I can add my custom modules on top of that.

HI Samba,

You can keep both old and new ODOO, and you can select which one you have to start. You can do this in following way:-

NB. its not recomended ,, if you need to know the diffrerence in both(new and old) then only you have to do this. Otherwise you have to delete old folder and copy the new folder.[if you have to switch between old and new, every time you have to upgrade your modules. since you are using same DB in both(or you have to use seperate DB in Both)]

1. Download latest version of ODOO and rename the folder to odoo_latest

2. Copy that to /opt

3. Open terminal :-

                            a) and for running old odoo you have to enter this;-

                                        cd /opt/odoo

                                        python odoo.py

                            b) and for running new odoo you have to enter this:-

                                        cd /opt/odoo_latest

                                        python odoo.py
