There is no way around the security designed to prevent unauthorized users from backing up the database.

A - You can only take a backup of the OpenERP database from the OpenERP user interface if you have the master password.

1) Click Manage Databases from the Login Screen

2) Click Backup

B - You can only take a backup of the OpenERP database from the operating system if you have permission to execute the relevant PostgreSQL command.

pg_dump --format=c --no-owner --username=<> --host=<> --port=<> <dbname>
