Hi, how do I install an app without the one click installer?

I know the -u switch for reinstalling an app.

Is this documented somewhere?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You use the -i for install/init a module eg ..

/usr/bin/openerp-server -c /etc/openerp/openerp-server.conf -i <MODULE_NAME> -d <DB_NAME>
