I'm using Odoo Version 7 and running it through pycharm and command line using openerp-server. That's working fine. Recently i download Version 8, when it i try to run it through odoo.py, version 7 configuration file is loaded automatically. How can i change it?
If i specify -c it also works fine.

Hi check whether you have saved your previous configuration file using -s parameter while running openerp. It will be available in $HOME/.openerp_serverrc by default. If present, delete it and run using odoo.py. It will work fine.

-c <config>, --config <config>

provide an alternate configuration file

-s, --save

saves the server configuration to the current configuration file ($HOME/.openerp_serverrc by default, overridable using -c)
