How do you install a module?

By

We unpacked the module at ../server/openerp/addons then we tried installing through Settings/Applications menu but the module does not appear to be available for installation. Also we tried to install it from command line with no result.

All we could find in Google and in this QA is about versions <= v6.1.

Any ideas?

i have the same problem ... no way to install modules from addons folder

The common problem with v7, is that many people search for modules in the "Apps" list.

Anyway, give Administrator the "Technical Features" permission, then return to Settings > Modules and run "Update modules list".

Then, search for your module under "Installed modules".

Pay attention to the already applied filters on the top right corner of the view.

i downloaded the enapps csv tool to windows, unzipped and ftp to /opt/openerp/openerp-7.0-20130122-001415/openerp/addons/ea_import.... set admin to technical then update modules list but ea_import is not listed under installed modules (filter removed and in list view)

This is a confusing problem that I learned early on, but really it is easily rectified by OpenERP. It would be too simple to turn off the apps for community modules and for installations with more than 3 users as per their Enterprise permissions. Many apps use the admin panel for installing modules and so users experienced with other software are going to be confused by these limitations.

The addons folder it is not supposed to be the one inside server. At the same level as server there's probably a folder named addons. Place your modules there.

After you log into the system you need to update the module list. Also, as Davide said, you should check for the default filters, in the top right.

If none of the above works, try looking in the server.conf file. In there you can specify the folder where the OpenERP looks for the module (i.e. the addons folders).

1  [options]
2  addons_path = /home/.../addons1,/home/.../addons2
3  ...

As you can see, you can specify more than one folder for the system to look for the modules, separate the absolute path with a comma. To use this configuration file, launch the server with the -c option like:

./openerp-server -c /<path>/server.conf

Hope it helps!

Just adding to this answer that you should also go to "Update Module List", click on update and after that go to "Installed Modules", remove the search filter, if any, and search for the module you had added.

Regarding this comment "At the same level as server there's probably a folder named addons. Place your modules there.": you should never move modules in the server/addons path, but instead add the additional addons folder in the addons-path.

Solved in my case:  Windows 8.1 with Odoo 8. 

  1. Give Administrator the "Technical Features" permission
  2. Place the module in a folder included in addons_path =   in the archive openerp-server.conf   (the module must be  placed directly in one of those folders!! it doesn´t work if you place a folder full of new modules!).
  3. Stop and initiate the service odoo-server-8.0
  4. Update Module List
  5. The module just appear

I hope it helps

 

 

 

 

Worked for me! Main reason I think is "Stop and initiate the service odoo"

Hello,

If your module is at "../server/openerp/addons" then follow the below steps, Step-1) Give access rights to administrator. Step-2) go to Setting-> Update Module List -> Click on Update. Step-3) Now enter your module name in the search panel which is at the top right corner of the view.

hope now you get your module Name. You can install the module by click on the install button.

Thanks, Serpent Consulting Services.

Be sure that it is a module and not a package of modules that you put in the /path/to/addons directory. If it is a package, move the modules inside into the addons directory.

I am installing the module for Odoo V8, but could not install the module as there is no new module in module list. Please help how to install it.

Kind regards

Unable to get this working. :(

Newly installed latest Ubuntu server. Installed openERP from repository as described on download page.

In my /etc/openerp/openerp-server.conf the first value is the addons_path pointing to, addons_path = /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons

So first I upload my l10n_xx.zip file to there change ownership and execution mode to what other files look like. (In the documentation for ver. 6.1 it implies that one could just upload the zip-file as is. ? No-Go!

So I unzip the file creating a folder by name "l10n_xx" in the addons directory mentioned above. Change owner and rights.

I run "Update Module List" go to Apps, remove all filters and search but NO, nothing new.

What is ment with " Step-1) Give access rights to administrator."? Where is this done, I tried looking at the Administrator account, but cannot find anything about rights to add modules. Don't I already the rights as an administrator and with Technical Settings enabled?

Kind regards, Erik

If you are using version 7.0 you may go to "Installed Modules" after processing "Update Modules List". Remove the "Installed" filter and see if you can find your addon module. In my environment I cannot find the newly created addon modules in "Apps". Weird, but it just seems how it is for now.

Yes I have tried all that, but no luck here either. :( I'm currently searching my server to find out if there possibly are other configuration files that are not where one would think they would be.

I tried too to no avail. Does anybody have the solution? Should be a standard documented procedure.
