How to uninstall / upgrade a module when web page is not accessible

I installed a custom module which turned out to have error in xml file. I stopped server and fixed the error. But I cannot access any page after server restart.

It seems that the server still has the problematic module. I need to upgrade the module first. But I cannot access upgrade menu.

Is there a way to upgrade or uninstall a module outside the web?

Regards,

Kibong

Some people call me a karma whore, I only ask for 10 points if you like my answer and 15 if I happen to get it correct.

You can update a module using the command line.

Upgrade would be: odoo.py -d <database> -u <module> -c <config file>

There is no command line option to delete a module

For uninstall module via terminal you can always do: psql - database -c "update ir_module_module set state='uninstalled' where name='module' ;" ... true not realy using orm but that is commandline way to quickly "uninstall" module.. it will not remove any data, just mark the module uninstalled...

This is not supposed to be the "proper" way, but this is what I use if the database I am using for developement has been foobared.  Use psql (or PgAdmin III) to access the database, open the ir_module_module table, then change the value of the state field of the module you want to change.  The values are: 'uninstalled', 'to install', 'installed', 'to upgrade', 'to remove'.

You must be very careful so that it does not make the database more foobared:

  • never make modules that are 'uninstalled' to be 'installed' or 'to upgrade'.  Always make it 'to install' so that it is installed properly during the next refresh.
  • never make 'installed' module to be 'uninstalled'.  Always try to go through 'to remove' state first so that it is uninstalled properly
  • never delete any record.  Do it from the UI once it is up.

Dear Stephen & Ivan,

Thank you!

Pardon me that I couldn't leave comment right below your answers due to shortage of karma.
