Hi, I'm new to OpenERP and was wondering if there was a way to create database installations automatically through a script.

Basically what I want to do is:

  1. Create a new database.
  2. Install some modules.
  3. Create some models.

I've been trying to trace back how OpenERP does this on the backend but have been unsuccessful so far. Is there an easy way to do this with the OpenERP API?

How did you managed to do it? I kinda need the same functions. Create database method trought php script that only asks for dbname and modules to install...

Well, looks like I ended up answering my own question after all.

What I was looking for is a configuration module.
