Agreeing with previous answer, Odoo v9 installation is same like older version. additionally you need to install node-less

Here is our fresh how to guide to Install Odoo v9 in ubuntu 14.04 LTS

I've made some minor additions/modifications to Andre's very useful script to add support for wkhtmltopdf and openerp-gevent mode among a few other things:

Modified Script: https://github.com/lukebranch/openerp-install-scripts/blob/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh

Andre's Original Script: https://github.com/aschenkels-ictstudio/openerp-install-scripts/blob/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh

this version of the script is designed for Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit, however if you want to run it on an Ubuntu 14.04 32 bit machine simply change line #93 to the following:

sudo wget kaz.dl.sourceforge.net/project/wkhtmltopdf/0.12.1/wkhtmltox-0.12.1_linux-trusty-i386.deb

This script is designed to run on a clean install of Ubuntu 14.04 and should install all required dependencies (as far as I am aware) and pull the design-themes branch from github.com/odoo/design-themes. I believe the Zen theme is currently working with the v8.0 branch, however I have not managed to get the other themes working yet (ie. theme_clean and theme_gourmand).

by default this script is set to run the server in openerp-gevent mode (running on port 8072), however if you would like to run the script in openerp-server model (running on port 8069) just change line #25 to the following: OE_SERVERTYPE="openerp-server"

Good evening Luke! Great script BTW! We have been using an older version of OpenERP on a different server for quite some time now and would like to install an older version of openerp on a new server. Is there any way we can modify your script to install an older version? Specifically Version 8.0dev-20140407-230101 I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks in advance!

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
9/23/14, 10:30 PM

@Marty Langen, Thanks for your message, although it's important to mention all credit goes to Andre Schenkel's (www.schenkels.nl) for the original script, I simply forked it and modified and expanded on it to suit my own requirements (openerp-gevent mode, extra packages, modules, etc.). Technically if you simply modify line #28 of the odoo_install.sh after you have downloaded it to your machine and change the following line: OE_VERSION="8.0" to: OE_VERSION="7.0" this should install an earlier branch (eg. version 7.0) with all necessary requirements. You may also find you'll need to modify line #25 from: OE_SERVERTYPE="openerp-gevent" to: OE_SERVERTYPE="openerp-server" This should all be run on an Ubuntu 14.04 install (as certain packages are designed specifically for 14.04 - eg. wkhtmltopdf) however slight modifications could be made to work with earlier Ubuntu versions. Rolling back to a different commit (eg. 8.0dev-20140407-230101) is another story. I have not yet needed to do this myself, however once I figure out how to do this I will post back here. Do you have a copy of the git SHA that was used when you downloaded the branch?

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
9/23/14, 10:35 PM

you may be able to find this by going to the Odoo directory and doing a: git log and searching back through the log for the exact SHA of the commit on the date you did a git clone or git pull of the 8.0 (RC1) branch, for example: commit 734713bc047d87bf7eac9674765ae793478c50d3 where: 734713bc047d87bf7eac9674765ae793478c50d3 is the SHA once you have the SHA it may be possible to roll your files back to their state at that commit. Please post back with what you find so that others in the community can benefit from your experience. I think this may be useful for those that we developing and testing on the earlier (pre-stable release) 8.0 branch to allow them to restore and export their database backups among other things.

Dear Luke, Thanks a lot for your great effort, but I tried this script many time with no use to get odoo started. I tried to start odoo after runnning this script with ni use also.
N.B. I use a clean ubntu 14.04 32-bit every time before running this scipt.

Can you help me?

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
11/9/14, 10:20 PM

Hi Rami, Please open an issue on github here: https://github.com/lukebranch/odoo-install-scripts/issues Is there any particular reason you are using Ubuntu 14.04 32 bit? I'd recommend reinstalling your system with the 64-bit version if your hardware can handle it, as you will get much better performance. The script is geared towards Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit, and some of the dependencies are 64-bit so I think this may have something to do with your issues.

Rami Talat Egypt
11/13/14, 12:18 PM

I'm using 32-bit Ubuntu, because my PC's BIOS doesn't support 64-bit (while is it 64-bit Windows 8.1), so I can't run 64-bit VMs, and therefore can't support it seamlessly. That's the reason :(

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
11/14/14, 1:00 AM

@Rami, please edit /etc/odoo-server.conf and change the following line: log_level = info to: log_level = debug and restart your machine. Then provide me with a copy of the contents of the file by adding it to a gist on github.com (or something similar like pastebin). I think it is likely due to some 64 bit packages in the script that are causing conflicting issues, however i'll take a look at your debug file and see how I can make the script both 32bit and 64bit compatible.

Rami Talat Egypt
11/14/14, 4:07 AM

Luke, First off, I'd like to thank you very much for your help and quick replies. About the /stc/odoo-server.conf file i did what i understood and here is the gist: https://gist.github.com/ramitalat/1d34af340f16216d402a , I'm waiting your help.

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
11/14/14, 4:33 AM

@Rami, Thanks for the gist, please now provide me with a copy of the following file as another gist: /var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log this will provide me with the details i need for troubleshooting what the issue is that is making the Odoo service unable to start.

Rami Talat Egypt
11/15/14, 3:42 AM

Luke, I installed a new ubuntu 14.04.1 32-bit, then I tried this script again (by the way the wkhtmltopdf here is for 64-bit), but I noticed some errors while running the script. I just captured the end of the file in this gist; https://gist.github.com/ramitalat/bf9c86ca3e7971909ac8 please help. the

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
11/15/14, 3:47 AM

@Rami, I'm currently working on modifying the script to allow compatibility with 32-bit Ubuntu. You can download the 32-bit wkhtmltopdf from the sourceforge repository, however this is not why your odoo will not start. Please try the following: 1) sudo su odoo 2) cd /opt/odoo/odoo-server 3) ./openerp-gevent -c /etc/odoo-server.conf 4) visit your computer's ip + odoo's port number in a browser on your local network (eg. 5) let me know the output of the errors that Odoo-server gives you. I'm working on getting things running on Ubuntu 32 bit on a local instance of my own, but this will take me some time to work though.

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
11/15/14, 3:50 AM

@Rami, forget the above for now. Provision a completely fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 32 bit and then do a fresh wget of the script (i've just made some changes). Run the script through to the finish and reboot and let me know if you can access Odoo. If you run into any errors please comment back with a gist like you did above and i'll take a look.

Rami Talat Egypt
11/15/14, 7:34 AM

Luke, I used this fork from your script (my own forkm just about wkhtmltopdf)m here you are; https://gist.github.com/ramitalat/1a34e7a5ac11da4b4fe3 . Now, everything is working fine !!!! Great work. and what is more great is your help, thx.

Rami Talat Egypt
11/15/14, 9:19 AM

By the way, won't you change your phrase "For Testing Purposes Only (ie. not for production)" after Odoo 8?

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
11/15/14, 10:47 PM

Hi Rami, Glad to hear it's working for you now. I believe there were some issues with the most recent updates I made to the script and those changes have now been removed. The script should work on both 32 bit and 64 bit machines (with the exception of wkhtmltopdf). When I can find a few minutes i'll add an if else statement in the script for determining which wkhtmltopdf version to use for the script. In regards to referring to testing purposes on the post, it's important to note that this script does not setup your server or Odoo as production-ready. There are many security considerations to be taken into account (both for server security and Odoo security) before you can consider using Odoo in production with a public-facing login/website.

Rami Talat Egypt
1/5/15, 10:16 AM

Dear Luke, I used your script many times before, but now I tried it more than 7 times and get failed every time!!! Can you please find the problem?

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
1/7/15, 2:23 AM

@Rami, I'll need you to provide more details about that. Please post all issues with the script on the script's github.com issues page here: https://github.com/lukebranch/odoo-install-scripts/issues This is the best way to get assistance with issues you are having with the script and will make sure that any bug reports are handled through the proper channels.

You can also get Odoo v8alpha1 (2nd July) up and running on AWS for free if your AWS account is less than a year old - you can qualify for their free usage tier.

Pragmatic have a complete Odoo v8alpha1 stack with ubuntu and postgres/phppgadmin here:- https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B00KNO9DYW/ref=srh_res_product_title?ie=UTF8&sr=0-2&qid=1405074711893. It is free also.

I know very little about building from git or running unix systems but have been able to run up 5 instances in the last 12 hours so it is pretty foolproof. The main difficulty seemed in working out how to connect to the instance via ssh after getting it running - you need to follow the instructions carefully to register the .pem key file on your client machine, and use the login 'ubuntu@your.ip.add.on.aws' but after that it seems fine.

I am not affiliated with AWS or Pragmatic, and have already asked the latter to put up a v8RC1 AMI for all us hungry proto-developers.


I would like to say thanks to Luke, for his greit job. His script 

installed for me Odoo V8 in a clean Ubuntu machine on Amazon Web Services.

I have run the next commands provided by Luke:

1) sudo rm -rf odoo_install.sh 2) wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lukebranch/openerp-install-scripts/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh 3) sudo sh odoo_install.sh



-Before succeding with the Luke Script, I had problems Installing Odoo V8 in Amazon Web Services with these two procedures:

1.-  I had problems with this link http://netbeam.in/blog/install-odooopenerp-on-linuxubuntudebian/

when installing Postgres in my Ubuntu machine on Amazon Web Services

2.- My problems regarding the  below procedure,

were with the step 22) sudo python setup.py install /

so I didn't finish the installation.

1) Install Ubuntu 14.04
2) open a terminal 
3) sudo apt-get update
4) sudo apt-get install git
5) apt-get install postgresql
6) sudo su - postgres -c "createuser -s openerp" 2> /dev/null || true
7) sudo apt-get install python-dateutil python-feedparser python-gdata python-ldap \ python-libxslt1 python-lxml python-mako python-openid python-psycopg2 \ python-pybabel python-pychart python-pydot python-pyparsing python-reportlab \ python-simplejson python-tz python-vatnumber python-vobject python-webdav \ python-werkzeug python-xlwt python-yaml python-zsi python-docutils \ python-psutil wget python-unittest2 python-mock python-jinja2
8) sudo apt-get install python-dev libpq-dev
9) sudo apt-get install poppler-utils
10) sudo apt-get install python-pdftools
11) sudo apt-get install antiword
12) sudo mkdir /opt/odoo
13) cd /opt/odoo
14) sudo git clone https://github.com/odoo/odoo.git
15) cd ~/
16) wget http://gdata-python-client.googlecode.com/files/gdata-2.0.18.tar.gz
17) tar zxvf gdata-2.0.18.tar.gz
18) cd gdata-2.0.18/
19) sudo python setup.py install
20) cd /opt/odoo
21) sudo apt-get install python-setuptools python-pybabel
22) sudo python setup.py install
23) sudo cp /opt/odoo/install/openerp-server.conf /etc/openerp-server.conf
24) sudo pico -w /etc/openerp-server.conf

Hi Javier, glad to hear it has helped you out, but it is worth noting that I was not the original author of that script, I have only modified and expanded on a script written by Andre Schenkel's (http://www.schenkels.nl/2014/07/install-odoo-v8-0-from-github-ubuntu-14-04-lts-formerly-openerp/). I wouldn't recommend using it as is in production, as there is still a fair number of server security measures to take. It is also worth noting that the install you have currently is currently RC1 (release candidate 1) and therefore not the final stable release of Odoo version 8.0. It should be safe to develop on, however I would personally not recommend launching a website or project with it in it's current state (RC1) until the final release of 8.0.

Hi Robert, I believe you may be trying this step while in the wrong directory. If you have cloned the git repository at https://www.github.com/odoo/odoo into /opt/odoo/ then setup.py should be accessible from that directory. Please post back with information on which directory you are trying to execute setup.py from.

I tried odoo at the end of 2013. I fell in love in it and have been working with odoo as a freelancer for almost two years. In September 2015 I began operate as a Company and have 5 developers for now.

I've prepared an intallation instruction on github gist:


It tested on ubuntu 14.04.

It works with longpolling (instant messaging - IM)

It uses nginx for port proxing

It has some commands for debuging

One can fork this gist and make necessary modifications

To make installation copy-paste commands in install-odoo.sh file. I recommend copy paste commands line-by-line and check result on each step.

Hi Carras, Please copy and paste the contents of the following file from the terminal: /etc/default/locale you can access this file by going to the terminal and typing "sudo pico -w /etc/default/locale" and then typing in your password. The contents should be something like the following (please replace the below with the original): LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 LANGUAGE=en_US:en Please be advised that you should only do this if you are on a clean Ubuntu 14.04 install, as changing the locale on a machine with other programs you are using on it may cause issues for you. If it is a clean install you should have no problem. After you have saved the above file you should then run the following command: "sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales" after this process has finished you should reboot the machine and try again. If you are unable to get it working I suggest you start again with a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 and then run my slightly modified version of Andre Schenkel's install script found here: https://github.com/lukebranch/openerp-install-scripts/blob/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh Please post back if it comes to this and I will provide you with instructions on how to download and run the script.

Hi Carras, If you have already tried to install Odoo on the machine and you are then trying to run the above script I suggest that you start again with a fresh clean install of Ubuntu 14.04. The above script is designed to be used on a 64 bit machine due to the version wkhtmltopdf in the script. If you are on a 32 bit machine just edit the script and change line number 93 to the following: sudo wget kaz.dl.sourceforge.net/project/wkhtmltopdf/0.12.1/wkhtmltox-0.12.1_linux-trusty-i386.deb Please post back if you have any further issues.

That's working perfect, thanks a lot my friend!. I saw that is 8.0 branch should I consider it as stable? Cuz I use openerp for my company; do you know how to migrate DB from 7.0 version?

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
7/10/14, 11:27 PM

Hi Carras, I believe the current v8.0 is RC1 (Release Candidate 1). There may be a few iterations before the final release is confirmed. I'd recommend keeping your eye on the odoo facebook page for announcements. In regards to stability from what I understand in v8.0 the database structure and general architecture is now frozen so I believe it is safe to begin developing on the current 8.0 branch. I believe they will only make major revisions if a serious bug/issue is found in any of the release candidates. With that being said, I would not recommend using it in production until you have had a professional with experience with Odoo and server security to make sure your Odoo instance is setup and secured. The script I have provided is just an install script to get you started. It's not recommended for implementing in production until you have implemented and understand the security measures that need to be made before using it in production.

Hi Luke, sorry to bother you.

@carras, There has been some minor changes during the last update to the 8.0 branch that seem to be causing this error. When I have some time to investigate I will update my fork of the script. I think it may be due to an issue with the branch, however i'll report the issue on github and see if it is the script or the update that is causing the issue.

Could be something relate with the permissions of the Postgresql user?

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
9/12/14, 1:21 AM

@carras, try the following: sudo pip install passlib and then restart the server. This has resolved the issue in my case. This seems to have been introduced in a recent update, as it seems that the module "Password Encryption" it is now part of the base modules that are installed when a new database is setup. Please write back if there are any other issues you run into and please delete the old odoo_install.sh on your machines and download a fresh version by typing the following at a terminal: wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lukebranch/openerp-install-scripts/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh and then run according to previous instructions (ie. sudo sh odoo_install.sh)

Here is a replacement for gdata python client


(by the way, does it happen to you, that when you are posting in this form and give an enter, takes you to the bottom of the page?)


It is very easy to test odoo without installing in to local server / laptop. create a 15 days free trial or create an instance with 2 users and get register for free for lifetime at https://accounts.odoo.com/odoo-enterprise/select-app If you want to test it quickly with demo data you can use http://runbot.odoo.com/runbot you have choice to select the version you want to test it.

Do you know where i can find windows article for the same  ? 

DevBranch Company Limited, Luke Branch Hong Kong
7/9/14, 10:39 PM

Hi Oli, Unfortunately I do not have experience in getting this running on Windows. I suggest if you would like to test the platform on your local machine that you download virtualbox and simply setup an Ubuntu 14.04 clean install inside the virtual machine. I suggest you then run my slightly modified version of Andre Schenkel's original script (designed for 64 bit machines) as follows: Modified Script: https://github.com/lukebranch/openerp-install-scripts/blob/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh Once you have a clean Ubuntu 14.04 install type this into a terminal: wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lukebranch/openerp-install-scripts/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh and then type: sudo sh odoo_install.sh the script will then run and install all the required dependencies and setup everything for you. Once it is complete follow the instructions on the screen and reboot the machine. Once you reboot you should be able to access Odoo on your locale (ie. Ubuntu install) by typing into a browser "" and you should be able to see it on the local network as "http://[insert_your_server_ip_here]:8072".

Hi Luke, i tried with VB but ubuntu is very very slow on VB (there are many posts about that on the net). So i test on a VM an test your script. BTW, may you help me to understand github updates. I assume that almost everyday developers update codes and when i follow your script, i get last version. Is that right ? tx for your script + answers.

i m using azure to create VM, i get below message at last step : pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: python-ldap Failed to fetch http://azure.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/python-ldap/python-ldap_2.4.10-1build1_amd64.deb 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable >> i did all update specified, i guess some files are missing from azure, how can i load files elsewhere from azure if needed ? tx

Hi Oli, In regards to github updates, the script will pull the latest merge onto the 8.0 branch when installing so you will have the latest version at the time of the git clone process in the script. Updating an existing instance of Odoo from github is another matter entirely and it is therefore best to wait to input any considerable amount of data/time until the final version of the 8.0 stable release is announced to the public.

in regards to the failed to fetch, I have just tested the download link doing a wget and it works without issue for me. I'm guessing there was a temporary interruption of your connection with the azure.ubuntu.com server that caused the issue. try a wget http://azure.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/python-ldap/python-ldap_2.4.10-1build1_amd64.deb and the dpkg the .deb you've downloaded, I think it will solve your issue. If you have any trouble post back here.

Hi Luke, i did try "wget http://azure.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/python-ldap/python-ldap_2.4.10-1build1_amd64.deb", i ve got an error : 2014-07-17 05:08:05 ERROR 503: Service Temporarily Unavailable. I guess issue is from azure. tx

I think this must be due to a restriction from your ISP or similar, or perhaps a restriction on your IP/IP Block from the azure server. I am located in Hong Kong and the link works fine. I've uploaded a temp copy of the file that i've downloaded in Hong Kong here: http://tempsend.com/01DB48E2B1/C619/pythonldap_2.4.101build1_amd64.deb try and wget it. If it works it'll confirm that it's the azure website that is somehow blocking you from a normal download.

oh... i can get your temp file..btw i just saw many post about this issue with azure, according to your IP, load balancing root you to specific archives from my understanding. For some regions there are no issues whereas for West Europe region (France) at least, there are. A workaround is to change the repository in /etc/apt/sources.list from azure.archive.ubuntu.com to whatever else official ubuntu mirror, like de.archive.ubuntu.com. I'll try that.tx

I got all missing files (about 10) from http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/python-ldap/. now at step #22 "sudo python setup.py install", i get following error : pkg_resources.VersionConflict: (Pillow 2.3.0 (/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages), Requirement.parse('pillow==2.0.0,>=2.4.0')), any idea how i can solve that ? tx

hi, pillow removed then installed. next issue : addon missing : pypdf, fixed see https://github.com/lukebranch/openerp-install-scripts/blob/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh. Now application is loading BUT : 1)some modules(application) like internet website are notified on UI as installed whereas there are not accessible/working. 2) some modules are missing from modules list on UI. Do you know how to fixe both issue ? tx

@oli please provide more details in regards to what is not installed/not working and if you are getting any error messages. Are the not installed modules highlighted in blue (trying to install), red (not installed), or black (installed)? You may also want to switch your logs on to debug mode and check /var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log: sudo pico -w /var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log go down to the bottom and you'll be able to see errors logged if you have used the settings i've provided for /etc/openerp-server.conf (if you set this up manually) or /etc/odoo-server.conf (if you used the script).

Hi Luke, I finally moved to below link : https://github.com/lukebranch/openerp-install-scripts/blob/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh#L286 and the application is working now with all needed modules. Your post is great but i may have done some mistakes, as installing from wrong path so i didn t get log file installed. May you help on that : As i understand, odoo is under AGPL, so the code is free. According to pricing list, Openerp charges from 2+ users, regarless if solution is hosted by them or not, when you use what they call "access to the Apps Platform". So the question is "what is Apps Plateform" ? I guess it's UI that provides icons which allow you to setup all modules by one clic...may you/someone confirm ? I have setup v8 on my own server from github.com and i got such an UI. So i wonder how can i setup V8 and modules without using that UI. Does someone has a link/process to provide ? Tx

@Jayson, it looks as if you may have some missing dependencies. Did you use the install script here on a clean Ubuntu 12.04 or 14.04 system?: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lukebranch/odoo-install-scripts/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh In that the directory Odoo is installed in is inside /home/openerp I think you may have installed manually. I'd recommend wiping your machine and doing a complete clean reinstall of Ubuntu 12.04 or 14.04 and running the following at a terminal: 1) sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lukebranch/odoo-install-scripts/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh 2) sudo sh odoo_install.sh let the script run through completely and reboot after it has finished. It should then provide you with a working Odoo 8.0 install on your system. If you have any issues please open an issue on the github repository here: https://github.com/lukebranch/odoo-install-scripts/issues with details about the OS version (eg. Ubuntu 14.04), and any traceback errors (in full) and/or logs.

I have a lot of Odoo experience now and I do not any other workflow anymore (note: you should alter the master pw after or before using the script) see this youtube video:


And I guess that everyone can confirm that DO is great:) 

have a great new year 2015!

I have used André Schenkels installation script (for odoo v8 on Ubuntu 14.04) a few days ago, and it worked neatlessly. I only had to set up the ssh keys, and reverse proxy and the script did all the rest, very smooth :-)

there is an installation script around where you can chose which version (7.0, master (what is what you call 8 here) or several SaaS version) on github.

https://github.com/aschenkels-ictstudio/openerp-install-scripts/blob/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.shI haven't tested it myself yet but following the discussion on the blog of Andre Schenkels (who made the script) here  it seems it has been debugged and several people have used it successfully. You can't install Oddo more easy than that probably.

Hi Gunnar, I have tested the above mentioned script and it does work very well for the master branch, however it does not seem to install the required dependencies for openerp-gevent mode. I'll post back here once i've figured out necessary modifications to the script to allow it to use both openerp-server and openerp-gevvent mode.

Above mentioned script is good base for building dev server installation, thanks for sharing!

hi Ville, best practice (within the logic of this forum) for your comment would have been a Comment to the answer you are commenting to instead of an answer. Best way to appreciate an answer would be to click a thumbs rather then expressing it in written. Like that this thread would be ranking higher somewhat and therefore might be accessed by more people.

I would but not yet enough karma to vote.

You may test this script:http://www.schenkels.nl/2014/07/odoo-v8-install-script-github-ubuntu-14-04-lts/
