How to start OpenERP server at start up of Ubuntu?

i have only terminal access so please give apropriate answer


Thank You in Advance!!!


there are plenty of ways for doing so, but before suggesting anything i would like to know your current way to start opemerp server. Are you using any script for starting/stopping it ?

There is a lot of how-to install odoo/openerp server tutorials.. 
Most of them contain a part in wich you have to copy the init.script to /etc/init.d/openerp-server
If you did everything right, you should be able to start your server service with: sudo /etc/init.d/openerp-server start
(check if it  is started with: ps ax |grep oepenrp-server
last thing to do is: sudo update-rc.d openerp-server defaults

now.. it should be started when the server reboots/(re) starts...

Scroll down to the section "Starting Server Up Automatically" for a good script.
