Is it possible to setup multiple websites with own Domain/Subdomain for One Company and its departments/Products
We like the new Website Feature but we can't find a way to setup multiple websites for different subdomains/domains i.e.
ParentCompany.URL - Home - Menu 1 - Menu 2
BranchCompany.URL - Home - List item - List item - List item
Product.ParentCompany.URL - Home - Menu - List item
Promotion.URL - Home - Menu1 - List item
All within one single OpenERP Installation and one Database where you have a Company and several Branches with their own websites (i.e. Franchiser) on own domain or subdomains to parent domain and of course you have products you would like to promote without having the need to setup an extra website only for this promotion with another system.
i.e. In TYPO3 we have Domain Records available.
All Domain Names direct to the Main Site (at TYPO3 it is index.php). From there the system desides where the root for this specific Domain record or subdomainrecord is. It directs the Visitor either to a new Branch inside the same system or even to a new root Branch like mentioned above, or it directs visitors to a specific Page . In TYPO3 even the 301 redirects and HTTP or HTTPS can be managed this way without accessing the .htaccess.
This helps to keep all your data at one place and in one single Website Management System.
Is this possible with OpenERP and if yes how can it be achieved. Thanks!
I've asked a similar question on another thread:
however after watching the Open Days (I believe it is day 2) where a similar question was asked in the audience:
this kind of granularity may not quite be ready for the v8 stable release that should be announced on the 7th of 8th of July. You can offer multiple translations for one website in a similar manner to Magento, however the Website > Store > Store View granularity that Magento and other similar platforms have might not be ready. From what I understand of the Open Days videos though it is on the roadmap for release eventually.
In the meantime you can simply run different databases on different ports and use Nginx for your virtual domains. From what I understand you can also use other technologies such as Varnish to deliver content, however I have not looked into details regarding hole-punching and correct .vcl configuration yet.
they pushed a new feature called website multi today into the master branch. Check this link https://github.com/odoo/odoo/pull/2300
But i think there are a lot of things to do, for example handling on products or payment methods per website. Lets see whats happen in the near future.
Easiest way for that scenario might be with Magento Connector. (answered similar yesterday).
Magento will allow multiple websites and inventories on One Server.
Magento Connector for Odoo (now in OCA) will bring in Magento Product Categories, Products, Customers and Orders into One Companies setup in Odoo. Inventory can be managed in Odoo and confirmation of shipment etc also in Odoo.
Not the same as having multiple Odoo Websites for sure but does do the "one company - many faces" approach.
