Same way you can run other instances also but with different ports. But you need to use different browsers.

If you want to run different databases on instance instance(server), you have to use different browsers.

i only want to work with one instance at the same time..

Go to odoo-server.conf  add bellow code.

Note :You should use different browser.


; This is the password that allows database operations:

; admin_passwd = admin

db_host = False

db_port = False

db_user = odoo

db_password = False

db_name = 'erp1'


list_db = False

addons_path = /opt/odoo/openerp/addons

logfile = /var/log/odoo/odoo-server1.log

xmlrpc_port = 1001

db_host = False

db_port = False

db_user = odoo

db_password = False

db_name = 'erp2'


list_db = False

addons_path =/opt/odoo/openerp/addons

logfile = /var/log/odoo/odoo-server2.log

xmlrpc_port = 1002

- edit this file /opt/odoo8/openerp/tools/config.py

- change these 3 ports :

("--xmlrpc-port", dest="xmlrpc_port", my_default=8069,

("--longpolling-port", dest="longpolling_port", my_default=8072,

("--xmlrpcs-port", dest="xmlrpcs_port", my_default=8071,

I would like to have it so:

http://domain:40069 - Company 1

http://domain:40169 - Company 2

http://domain:40269 - Company 3

http://domain:40369 - Company 4

http://domain:40469 - Company 5

and it should be possible to use it in the same browser.. Is there a way?

Had you found a solution for this?

You can create multiple instances with oerpenv


(I do not have enough karma pints to post links so the www will have to do for now)
