after installation

To install the Debian/Ubuntu package, add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://nightly.odoo.com/8.0/nightly/deb/ ./


deb http://nightly.odoo.com/master/nightly/deb/ ./

And type:

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install openerp




I called

ps aux | grep openerp

it displayed


root      7138  0.0  0.1   4652   604 pts/0    S+   03:33   0:00 grep --color=auto openerp

It looked like odoo installtion is OK

but when I try to access odoo via




it is not available


Your comment welcome

This is not openerp process. So there is no openerp running yet. Try this

# service openerp start

it works well thanks

I called


sudo /etc/init.d/openerp-server stop


it reported

/etc/init.d/openerp-server: command not found

really confused by odoo installation

If using Ubuntu, just type "sudo service openerp start"

Hello Z Wang,

I think that the problem is that you need to create the Odoo database in PosgreSQL (or create a user in PosgreSQL to allow Odoo to interact with your database). Then, you will need to modify /etc/openerp/openerp-server.conf to put there the username and password used by Odoo to access the database.

Hope this helps.

thanks but I do not understand why offcial does not list clearly https://github.com/odoo/odoo http://nightly.openerp.com/ none is full description

On Ubuntu, you can access PosgreSQL using "sudo -u postgres psql" and typing your master password. Once on PostgreSQL shell create the Odoo user using "create user openerp with password 'yourpassword';". Finally, edit /etc/openerp/openerp-server.conf and set "db_user = openerp" and "db_password = yourpassword". This will allow Odoo to connecto to your PostgreSQL server.
