Good Day...I have checked various resources througout the internet where you can deploy Odoo ona single machine with multiple instances with ofcourse different ports..

But is it possible to deploy odoo online using one public ip but with multiple instances?


Like forexample I will have abc.odoo.com/ist and abc.odoo.com/2nd... Is it possible? Instances may be multiple for one public IP?


I tried somehting like apache2 or wsgi but couldnt succeed..

Please Guide




OS I am using is UBUNTU and instances are supposed to be created from Ubuntu too ofcourse

I think this should be more easy with NGINX  (of course each instance must be installed on a different folder,  running on a  different port number, and with a different addons_path ... etc ...).

Be careful: The names of the OpenERP configuration files must be different and also the names of the startup scripts if they are in the same folder (e.g /etc/openerp and /init.d ....).

Last, in the the nginx.conf file you should repeat the server section as many times as the number of instances (changing in each one the instance_port number in the proxy_pass directive (proxy_pass ).

Let me know if it works.


This is exactly what you need: http://mishekha.blogspot.com/2012/07/running-multiple-openerp-server-on.html
