Impossible to update apps

on 10/23/13, 6:45 PM 1,473 views


I install openerp 7 on a distant server Centos If I try to clic on the button update on any apps I can't update them. The system ask me for a licence free for 3 users...

I am lost OpenErp is free to use ?

I am going to give you all the issue but this the end of the warning.

" File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/openerp-7.0_20130924_231032-py2.6.egg/openerp/osv/osv.py", line 197, in execute res = self.execute_cr(cr, uid, obj, method, args, *kw) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/openerp-7.0_20130924_231032-py2.6.egg/openerp/osv/osv.py", line 185, in execute_cr return getattr(object, method)(cr, uid, args, *kw) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/openerp-7.0_20130924_231032-py2.6.egg/openerp/addons/base/module/module.py", line 680, in install_from_urls bck = backup(module_path, False) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/openerp-7.0_20130924_231032-py2.6.egg/openerp/addons/base/module/module.py", line 69, in backup shutil.move(path, bck) File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/shutil.py", line 257, in move copytree(src, real_dst, symlinks=True) File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/shutil.py", line 142, in copytree os.makedirs(dst) File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/os.py", line 157, in makedirs mkdir(name, mode) OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/openerp-7.0_20130924_231032-py2.6.egg/openerp/addons/account_accountant~1'

Does that mean that I can't update? Or did I made a mistake on the installation?

I am little bit desapointed with the idea of opensource of OpenERP. It looks like it is free but when we use it we have lot of issues because of permissions Denied...

I will try again a litle bit OpenERP maybe someone will help me to be more confident with this beautifull product

Cheers Frank

Sounds like the login that is running the OpenERP server doesn't have permissions to create directories in those folders? Also, any reason why CentOS? I tried using that over Ubuntu and found it far too difficult to set up properly.

OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied:

means the user that is running the openERP daemon does not have permission to write to the directory - /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/openerp-7.0_20130924_231032-py2.6.egg/openerp/addons/account_accountant

This is a problem with your installation, you need to change the permissions of that directory.
