Odoo server process stability

By

Hello,

I have installed in an open source way Odoo server on an Ubuntu 14.04 with the production script :

https://github.com/aschenkels-ictstudio/openerp-install-scripts

It generates a script that is supposed to restart the server process automatically as it stops from time to time. However, it happens that the server process stops without restating automatically. 

My question is : "Would someone with some Linux administration knowledge have an init script that works well ?"

Thanks,

Best regards,

José 

Post scriptum : Here is the script

#!/bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: $OE_CONFIG
# Required-Start: $remote_fs $syslog
# Required-Stop: $remote_fs $syslog
# Should-Start: $network
# Should-Stop: $network
# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 6
# Short-Description: Enterprise Business Applications
# Description: ODOO Business Applications
### END INIT INFO
PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin
DAEMON=/opt/odoo/odoo-server/openerp-server
NAME=odoo-server
DESC=odoo-server

# Specify the user name (Default: odoo).
USER=odoo

# Specify an alternate config file (Default: /etc/openerp-server.conf).
CONFIGFILE="/etc/odoo-server.conf"

# pidfile
PIDFILE=/var/run/$NAME.pid

# Additional options that are passed to the Daemon.
DAEMON_OPTS="-c $CONFIGFILE"
[ -x $DAEMON ] || exit 0
[ -f $CONFIGFILE ] || exit 0
checkpid() {
[ -f $PIDFILE ] || return 1
pid=`cat $PIDFILE`
[ -d /proc/$pid ] && return 0
return 1
}

case "${1}" in
start)
echo -n "Starting ${DESC}: "
start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile ${PIDFILE} \
--chuid ${USER} --background --make-pidfile \
--exec ${DAEMON} -- ${DAEMON_OPTS}
echo "${NAME}."
;;
stop)
echo -n "Stopping ${DESC}: "
start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --pidfile ${PIDFILE} \
--oknodo
echo "${NAME}."
;;

restart|force-reload)
echo -n "Restarting ${DESC}: "
start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --pidfile ${PIDFILE} \
--oknodo
sleep 1
start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile ${PIDFILE} \
--chuid ${USER} --background --make-pidfile \
--exec ${DAEMON} -- ${DAEMON_OPTS}
echo "${NAME}."

;;
*)
N=/etc/init.d/${NAME}
echo "Usage: ${NAME} {start|stop|restart|force-reload}" >&2
exit 1
;;

esac
exit 0

I have to say that I run the script without a custom user within group sudo with the sudo command : sudo service odoo-server start I don't know how to log in the system using the odoo user.

Here is the original and distributed script from the main Odoo repository. My suggestion, use this installation path  and apt-get on Ubuntu.

Hello zbik,

Already seen you active on the forum, thanks for the advice, I am going to try a new install and import the database from my current install.

Could you tell me how I could test the stability of the system instead of waiting for a month.

I guess a linux command could do the trick.

Best regards,

José

What it means "stability of the system"?? and why you "waiting for a month"?

Hello, I am sorry if I am not clear. By process stability, I mean that the process has to be up all the time whereas it crashes all the time, at least once a weak. Then, if I have to wait for a month to see if the process crashes, I mean I don't know how to test the process to crash, to see if the automatic restart works. I hope this is clear enough. Best regards, José

In my systems process openerp-server works without crash. But if... my suggestion, install ubuntu package --- monit --- plugins for nagios compatible monitoring systems.
