I am used to follow the procedure on this website : www.theopensourcerer.com/2012/12/how-to-install-openerp-7-0-on-ubuntu-12-04-lts/

I have done the same installation with Jerome explanation on using Bazaar www.theopensourcerer.com/2012/12/how-to-install-openerp-7-0-on-ubuntu-12-04-lts/comment-page-1/#comment-64779 and, got it to work modifying the command line to get the right download like this:

bzr branch lp:openobject-server/trunk server bzr branch lp:openerp-web/trunk web lp:openobject-addons/trunk addons

I did modify the openerp-server.conf to get the addons but, the only one that are available when I run the server are the base one.

Any idea why or does anyone has a procedure to install it from bzr ?

Google Search How to install OpenERP 8.0 Alpha on a fresh Debian / Ubuntu server.

I do not have sufficient kerma to post URL to page where details instructions are give to install OpenERP V8.

Alternately if you failed to find right tutorial blog post for V8 Installation, try following:


Just change hxxps to https and then try to open URL

For those who are having difficulties with bzr thing to get latest updates automatically from repositories. do as follows:

First create addons folders as per your requirement by throwing following commands:

For Receiving Addons (Official Addons, Extra Official Addons and Community Addons):

bzr checkout lp:~openerp/openobject-addons/trunk --lightweight addons
bzr checkout lp:~openerp-commiter/openobject-addons/trunk-extra-addons --lightweight addons-extra
bzr checkout lp:~openerp-community/openobject-addons/trunk-addons-community --lightweight addons-community

For Updating Addons (all): Go to each addons directory

cd addons
bzr update

You can create symlink to one central addons directory (in my case it's path: /srv/openerp/openobject-server/openerp/addons/)

Let's imagine you have did successful bzr checkout command as above, now want to make all addons available inside your ERP -> Settings -> Addons, either you copy specific addons to central addons directory.


You can create symlink from all addons directories to our central addons directory.

ln -s /srv/openerp/addons/* /srv/openerp/openobject-server/openerp/addons/
ln -s /srv/openerp/addons-community/* /srv/openerp/openobject-server/openerp/addons/
ln -s /srv/openerp/addons-extra/* /srv/openerp/openobject-server/openerp/addons/

You can also automate update and symlink command by creating alias in your ./bashrc file or you can write small shell script to make it less annoying.

Remember to Restart Webserver(s) and Update Addons List inside your ERP everytime you do updates to make sure it works fine.

My problem ain't to install it and getting it to run. My issue was to have it to use the config file properly to have all addons available. When I install it using BZR, It creates 3 folders, server, web and addons, even tho I was adding the full paths in the config file, it would only have addons from the server directory. Intalling by using downloaded Tar file, it works without any problems.

First you should check is there any file and directories created when you do bzr, sometimes bzr does not yield anything (even I'm finding answer why) next you should check directory user and permission for add-on directories, then you should update addons from backend. If everything works out well you will have all add-ons listed for installation inside ERP. :)

Hello First Install all dependancy of python

 than install Postgres
 Create database user related to system user 
 than run it

This was all done. Have a look at the links I have included, DEpendencies are installed, Postgres, System user created in Postgres etc...

I could most likely get it to work also that way, maybe I'll give it a try but, my main issue is the config file, why wont the server look at the addon path when I run it ?
