how to set up (internal) Instant messaging for v7 with 'anyboxes' web_im?

on 8/6/14, 4:42 AM 770 views

I will try to install and setup Instant Messaging for v7 using www.bitbucket.org/anybox/web_im. I am need internal messaging first (not sure whether that is possible) hopefully without using Nginx or so. I' try to make a howto if I suceed using this thread. Hopefully I'll get some help to get it done on the way.

this answer is a WORK IN PROGRESS. I'll need help to get it good


1. install mercurial on your linux server (so you can clone the modules you need from bitbucket)

sudo apt-get install mercurial

2. clone web_im, web_socketio, web_longpolling    (NOTE web_longpolling is included in the web_socketio repository)

sudo hg clone https://bitbucket.org/anybox/web_im

sudo hg clone https://bitbucket.org/anybox/web_socketio

https://bitbucket.org/anybox/web_im  comes with a howto which I am trying to understand and follow.


Make your Nginx/Apache conf

example conf for nginx:

worker_processes 1;


events {

        worker_connections 1024;



http {

    server {

        listen 80;

        server_name www.myopenerp.fr;

        location /socket.io {

            proxy_pass; proxy_http_version 1.1;


            proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;

            proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";

            proxy_set_header Host $host;


            proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;

            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;


            proxy_redirect off;


       location / {






/etc/hosts: www.yourdomian.com

the port:

8069: the OpenERP server

8068: the SocketIO server

/socketio is the default path to dispatch the poll


first serious problem: I have no clue about Nginx (only know you can use that for making OpenERP accessable from the internet (reverse proxy). I wonder whether this http://www.schenkels.nl/2013/01/reverse-ssl-proxy-using-nginx-with-openerp-v7/ would help getting where you need to get?
