I have OpenERP 6.1 installed on my Ubuntu machine, but I want to install OpenERP 7.0 on the same machine to work with another project. How can I install both version without destroying the first?

Please help me. Thank you in advance


Hello ! It depends on how you installed first version. If you directly install OpenERP from Launchpad then both are possible. Following are commands to install lightweight versions on your server from Launchpad using BZR. bzr co --lightweight lp:openobject-server/6.1 server bzr co --lightweight lp:openobject-addons/6.1 addons bzr co --lightweight lp:openerp-web/6.1 web bzr co --lightweight lp:openobject-addons/7.0 addons bzr co --lightweight lp:openobject-server/7.0 server bzr co --lightweight lp:openerp-web/7.0 web Thanks, Acespritech Solutions Pvt.

Hello @Acespritech. I installed OpenERP 6.1 using this tutorial http://www.theopensourcerer.com/2012/02/how-to-install-openerp-6-1-on-ubuntu-10-04-lts/ . Is it possible in this case to install also 7.0 and how can I do this? Thank you.

The simple question is yes you can. You should just install a second Odoo under a new location with a new postgres and system user. This way nothing can be mixed up! You should use the install script from André, which you can find here: https://github.com/aschenkels-ictstudio/openerp-install-scripts Take a copy of your server and give it a test. After installation you will have to move one of the Odoo's from port 8069 to port xxxx though.

Thanks @Yenthe. I am trying it now, and if I have any question especially regarding the ports I will ask you
