Hello I'd like to deploy my website using Apache2, my domainname is www.hew-automation.be. I've already made a link from this domainname to my server's IP Address ( I want to get rid of the port 8080 and also stop displaying the IP address in the browser.

I installed apache2, added following to /etc/apache2/sites-available/odoo.conf:

<VirtualHost *:80>

ServerName hew-automation.be

ServerAlias *.hew-automation.be // Use this if you want dbfillter on subdomain

ErrorLog /var/log/odoo/odoo-error.log

CustomLog /var/log/odoo/odoo-access.log combined

<Proxy *>

Order deny,allow

Allow from all


ProxyRequests Off

ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/

ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/

ProxyVia On

LogLevel warn


Then enabled this with a2ensite, this without any errors.

This is my /etc/odoo-server.conf file:


admin_passwd = XXXX

db_host = False

db_port = False

db_user = XXXX

db_password = XXXX

addons_path = /opt/odoo/addons

logfile = /var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log

xmlrpc_port = 8068

Now whenever I surf to my IP-address, it always shows the default page of Apache2, what am I doing wrong here?

Just a typo in the question, the conf file says xmlrpc_port = 8080

You need to proxypass to port 8068, not 8080. According to your odoo-server.conf file your Odoo instance is listening on port 8068.
