I set up a New Ubuntu Server. Then i Follow the Instruktion: OpenERP Debian/Ubuntu packages

To install the Debian/Ubuntu package, add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

And type: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install openerp

But if I open then I get the error:Internal Server Error

{"message": "OpenERP Server Error", "code": 200, "data": {"debug": "Server Traceback (most recent call last):\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/web/session.py\", line 89, in send\n return openerp.netsvc.dispatch_rpc(service_name, method, args)\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/netsvc.py\", line 292, in dispatch_rpc\n result = ExportService.getService(service_name).dispatch(method, params)\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/service/web_services.py\", line 122, in dispatch\n return fn(params)\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/service/web_services.py\", line 359, in exp_list\n cr = db.cursor()\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/sql_db.py\", line 484, in cursor\n return Cursor(self._pool, self.dbname, serialized=serialized)\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/sql_db.py\", line 182, in __init__\n self._cnx = pool.borrow(dsn(dbname))\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/sql_db.py\", line 377, in _locked\n return fun(self, *args, *kwargs)\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/sql_db.py\", line 440, in borrow\n result = psycopg2.connect(dsn=dsn, connection_factory=PsycoConnection)\n File \"/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/psycopg2/__init__.py\", line 179, in connect\n connection_factory=connection_factory, async=async)\nOperationalError: FATAL: role \"openerp\" does not exist\n\n\nClient Traceback (most recent call last):\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/web/http.py\", line 285, in dispatch\n r = method(self, **self.params)\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/web/controllers/main.py\", line 570, in index\n db, redir = db_monodb_redirect(req)\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/web/controllers/main.py\", line 98, in db_monodb_redirect\n return db_redirect(req, not config['list_db'])\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/web/controllers/main.py\", line 109, in db_redirect\n dbs = db_list(req, True)\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/web/controllers/main.py\", line 90, in db_list\n dbs = proxy.list(force)\n File \"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/web/session.py\", line 30, in proxy_method\n result = self.session.send(self.service_name, method, *args)\n Fi

Are there other settings to do?

Thank you!

Install and configure the database server, PostgreSQL

sudo apt-get install postgresql

Then configure the OpenERP 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 OpenERP 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 openerp Enter password for new role: * Enter it again: *

Finally exit from the postgres user account:


Install the necessary Python libraries for the server

sudo apt-get install python-dateutil python-docutils python-feedparser python-gdata \ python-jinja2 python-ldap python-libxslt1 python-lxml python-mako python-mock python-openid \ python-psycopg2 python-psutil python-pybabel python-pychart python-pydot python-pyparsing \ python-reportlab python-simplejson python-tz python-unittest2 python-vatnumber python-vobject \ python-webdav python-werkzeug python-xlwt python-yaml python-zsi

Download Openerp Server

and extract the file than run the openerp-server

very good answer
