I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

Hi Gregory

Yes, not only the pictures, all the attachments generated and documents are located in the Odoo filestore per database. Normally it's located in the Odoo running user path


But you could have a different place for that setted in the config file as data_dir of your Odoo like the Odoo Docker Image does

data_dir = /var/lib/odoo

So if you copy the content of /var/lib/odoo maybe you are having some permissions issues. Set the owner for the odoo user again for the copied files just to be sure that Odoo could readit, also check the logs to see what it's the error

Hello Gregory,

I' d recommend to use the odoo database backup feature.  That way you can create a backup containing both the database dump as the attachments file store.

For backup, you can go to this link http://localhost:8069/web/database/manager.

  • You can create a backup from there.
  • You can restore your pre existing backup also.

Important- Before that just set your master password for your Database to avoid consequences in future.

If you want to change particular models or fields while logged in. You can do it by export/importaction provided by Odoo. After exporting data from local you can import it on your server for that you have to validate it.
