Hi Guys

Has anyone implemented postgres as a remote database server?

We are trying to put application on one server and postgres on another which means we need to change odoo.conf file to point to the other server and we have tried that with no success.

Any help or pointers appreciated. :)

Hi Rohit

You just need to set the database connection parameters in the Odoo config like:

db_host =
db_port = 5432
db_user = odoo
db_password = odoo

See more about it here:


Those command line arguments have their correspondent config option as explained here:
