How do I disable a module from command line?

It seems that something went wrong with my production OpenERP database, which I don't really know its cause. Here's the error I get:

I think there's something wrong with project.project module, so I want to disable it, at least to start my production DB until further investigation

Does anyone have a solution? Or: Can someone guide me to at least disabling

P.S. I'm not much into postgres. So if the solution involves manipulating the DB via command line, I'd highly appreciate a step by step procedure

hello you can disable the module from database in the table ir_module_module set the state of project uninstalled

update ir_module_module set state='uninstalled' where name='project'

restart the server login make the module as installed to allow you to desinstall it

update ir_module_module set state='installed' where name='project'

hope that's help you

My stackoverflow answer: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21485630/how-to-uninstall-manually-openerp-module/41760541#41760541

There are two ways

  1. Apply the Patch of my pull request:
            https://github.com/odoo/odoo/pull/12373.patch (git apply /home/user/patch_file.patch)

  2. Manually:

  • Go to Terminal > psql db and Execute the query like: update ir_module_module set state='to remove' where name='module_name' and state='installed';

  • Add update_module=True in loading.py before this line > https://github.com/odoo/odoo/blob/10.0/odoo/modules/loading.py#L378

And run the odoo.py or odoo-bin.
This will uninstall the module properly and safely.

Enjoy odoo.
Let me know if face any problem.
