Hi there, I hope someone can offer some instructions for me. I am trying to install OpenERP on our server, which is a VPS running CentOS (5). I see the detailed instructions are for Ubuntu or Debian and should only take 5 minutes but other Linux types take over 30 minutes.
So I have been trying to go through the step by step directions. So far I have enabled Postgres, installed missing dependencies and uploaded the Linux install files to the public_html directory.
The instructions seem to tell me the next step to install is:
tar -xzf openerp-6.1-latest.tar.gz
sudo python setup.py install
I am asking for help because my only experience installing applications on the web server is .php applications where all I had to do was create a database, upload the application files, then point my web browser to the "install.php" file and the rest was pretty easy. This is foreign to me.
it's almost same as Ubuntu here you can follow these steps
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
