Hello, I need to update couple of community modules directly at the server for my own v7 installation. This due to the 3 user limitation of the easy installation via the web client, I have 4 users... = (. So how to do this the easy way? I found "OpenERP Community Repositories Installer" but cannot judge whether that is the best option available even if it looks feasible. Are there other ways to get this done (with step-by-step instructions)?
Here the link: launchpad.net/openerp-community-repo-installer
Your support is highly appreciated.
If you have access to the server (e.g. FTP): you can try the following steps.
In a terminal on your server:
- Download the community modules
- Copy the module folders to the addon folder of the OpenERP folder
- If necessary, correct the owner and the authorizations for those module folders (
- Restart openerp server with
sudo service openerp-server restart
In a web browser:
- Log in to OpenERP as administrator
- Go to Settings - Modules - Update Module List and click on Update
- Go to Settings - Modules - Installed Modules
- Locate your module. If required, remove the filter 'Installed' in the topright corner.
- Open the module and click Upgrade
- Repeat step 4 and 5 for all modules that need updating
You can do the update for the community modules by this way, but don't miss to follow the instructions provided in the "README.rst" file, especially the following:
/etc/openerp/openerp-server.conf and add this line::
addons_path = OFFICIAL_PATH,/opt/openerp-community-repo-installer/addons Remember to replace ``OFFICIAL_PATH`` with the path to your official addons (Usually ``/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons``).
Foe marko: The answer above, is just to tell that this update method can be used ...
But personnaly, i find that the easy and recommended way for updating modules in OpenERP is by using "Bazaar Explorer", and to not update branches directly in the .../openerp/addons/... folder, but create a folder for each branch somewhere (eg. /home/your user/addons-update/your branche name/.
Copy (only) the needed modules to your ../openerp/addons/.... folder, Update Modules List and install the module you want.
Before any update (just in case ...), backup you addons folder (or at least the folder of the module you want to update).
