How can I see my module ?

Hi !

I know this is a trivial question, but I've been installing a new system on my computer, along with a local openerp server, so I can develop without abusing openerp-server restarts on the production server.

So, I've created a new addons folder, with openerp user as owner. When I start the server, the folder is taken into account, according to what the server says:

openerp@yann-acer-portable:~$ /home/openerp/server/openerp-server -c /etc/openerp-server.conf --init=synconfig
ERROR: couldn't create the logfile directory. Logging to the standard output.

2014-06-05 08:13:12,486 6115 INFO ? openerp: OpenERP server is running, waiting for connections...

But, no matter what I do, I can't see my own module in the local modules list, nor in the apps list...

Tried putting my module in every addons folder, still the same issue.

Anyone has this problem ?

Fixed !

Just changed owner of custom module (and all it's childs) and it worked !

For the future:

sudo chown openerp:openerp /home/openerp/custom_addons -R
