Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
The 'root' of our account on Odoo SAAS is now: https://my-company.odoo.com and this is also the Homepage of the website on the Odoo system.
How can I link "http://www.my-domain.com" (or another subdomain of my domain) so that it lands on the Odoo Saas root of my account?
With apache2, it is called a redirection (see http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/rewrite/remapping.html or http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_alias.html and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/URL_redirection )
You should also read http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_proxy.html which is nicer (the reverse proxy).
A reverse proxy (or gateway), by contrast, appears to the client just like an ordinary web server. No special configuration on the client is necessary. The client makes ordinary requests for content in the name-space of the reverse proxy. The reverse proxy then decides where to send those requests, and returns the content as if it was itself the origin.
A typical usage of a reverse proxy is to provide Internet users access to a server that is behind a firewall. Reverse proxies can also be used to balance load among several back-end servers, or to provide caching for a slower back-end server. In addition, reverse proxies can be used simply to bring several servers into the same URL space.
Just an example, assuming you need to fake www.my-domain.tld/opendoo to https://my-company.odoo.com :
# Reverse Proxy for Odoo
Allow from all
ProxyPass /opendoo https://my-company.odoo.com
ProxyPassReverse /opendoo https://my-company.odoo.com
Not tested but should work...
CNAME is not an option : it'll give the good IP address but the Odoo's server is probably full of vservers, so without the correct address (my-company.odoo.com) it will fail.
I am understanding, now (March 2015) that for a 1 or 2 Person setup, Odoo Hosting is free. (Be sure to use the Admin user as one of the users and then change the name/login etc).
I am going to try my own VPS next. It is quite nice that Odoo provides this as a service at least for testing. Difficulties seem to be in adding "out of system" extensions and doing much tinkering yourself. You can seemingly tinker with the XML in the database though.
Good first impression here. Yes, would be nice to resolve to our own domain name, I agree about that.
The Karma system, too, is relatively awkward. Took me 12 clicks to get logged in an to post this.
