Both of these were written to use the master branch which was odoo v8 Alpha 1 at the time.  Since then Odoo has forked off odoo v8rc1 into its own branch.

Ignore this because it seems that odoo's install script still points to master.  Well it is a release candidate.

If you change line 8 of the http://pulse7.net/openerp/install-odoo-ubuntu-14-04-github to this:

wget -O- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/odoo/odoo/8.0/odoo.py | python

You will install odoo v8 Release Candidate 1 (which is the latest version of odoo v8)

I personally like this install script that does everything for you.  Just edit the script and fill in your details including version 8.0 and run it.


I tried, but still have installed version 9

I updated my answer to suggest using this install script. http://www.schenkels.nl/2014/07/odoo-v8-install-script-github-ubuntu-14-04-lts

I agree with Stephen, I'm a fan of Andre Schenkels script as well. I like that you can select the version. However, there are a couple tricks if you want to select v7 because the config file isn't in the same place, so you have to edit line 84 of the script to point it to $OE_HOME_EXT/install/openerp-server.conf instead or $OE_HOME_EXT/debian/openerp-server.conf.

He keeps updating the script, I am sure he would accept a pull request to add in some 7.0 logic. Cheers!

When installing with Andre Schenkels script you will have to install python-passlib: sudo apt-get install python-passlib

I'm using this script https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lukebranch/openerp-install-scripts/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh to install odoo 8.0. IMHO this is very simple way for install. But you need to install pytils for create SEF-url based Cyrilics language, e.g.: 

sudo pip install pytils

I found this guide to be excellent: http://www.theopensourcerer.com/2014/09/how-to-install-openerp-odoo-8-on-ubuntu-server-14-04-lts/

Sure, you can use an install script to do it all, but what fun is that?  Plus you don't understand what's going on that way.

1. sudo apt-get update

6. sudo -u postgres createuser -s odoo
7. Install odoo version: (Version 8 is at https://github.com/odoo/odoo/tree/8.0, you can select the version you wish from https://github.com/odoo/odoo/tree/x.x/odoo.py)

The versions are subcategorised by Odoo itself on github. If you would like version 8 you would need to do wget -O- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/odoo/odoo/8.0/odoo.py | python
