I have Odoo instalation with 3 databases, one of them I defined in the config file to be default (db_name=...),
However whenever I go to the main address of odoo instalation I get to the login/selectdb screen and Not the website I have in that database!

I've tried launching openerp-server with -d  and also the db_filter in odoo config file none of them worked.

Thanks you!

Did you try launching Odoo with the argument "--db_filter"?

Yes i did try it with no luck!

I had the same problem. The only way to solve it is to call odoo with the parameter db in the URL. For example: mysite.com/db=mydatabase2. Then the website from database2 will be displayed.

I think the reason is that odoo must know the database for displaying the desired website. If you start odoo without the db parameter then the standard login screen will be displayed.



Thank you for your reply, adding ?db=DesiredDB would go to the login screen of that db but not directly to the website thanks
