Odoo v8 fails to create new databases [SOLVED]

on 9/23/15, 5:02 AM 3,851 views

I have two Odoo v8 servers. I have noticed that I can't no longer create new databases.

Everything was working fine and no recent update was performed. When I try to create a new database from database management everything seems to work fine but then after odoo redirects to admin login for that new database there is a version error.

This is the log:

57:44] "POST /web/database/get_list HTTP/1.1" 200 -

Does anyone experience the same issue?

I have tried:

1.) For admin_passwd I am using the odoo admin password.

2.) I do not know what do you mean with to set the database user's password. Which database? which user? should not admin user for the new generated database be defined by the manage database GUI?

3.) I added the line for odoo (which is the user for odoo without succes). I ensured a fresh start by rebooting the server.

I think it might be relevant to notice this:

2015-09-23 10:22:44,383 829 WARNING newdatabase1 openerp.addons.base.ir.ir_cron: Skipping database newdatabase1 as its base version is not

As I suspect it might be the reason for not being able to further access the database. Any help is really welcomed, it is very frustrating as this is happening in two servers.

Finally I noticed that the issue was in one of my custom module. Despite aparently Odoo was creating the database and it was an access issue, Odoo was not actually creating the database. I noticed that using the Odoo log while creating the new database

Database user which you have specified in "db_user" attribute of your openerp_server.conf file. I am asking to provide it's password.

I don't believe "AccessDenied: Access denied." error comes from problem of any custom module. You haven't caught your problem in right way. However afterall your problem is solved that matters !

There should be 2 reasons.

1. Super admin password is not matching with your given password.

Please verify "admin_passwd" value of openerp_server.conf file with the super admin password you given at the time of create database from frontend.

2. Database user's password is not set yet. ( Go to psql command line and from template1 user you can set db user's pwd )

3. Database user with which you have started Odoo has no enough right to create database. To solve that please follow below steps. ( I guess you are using Ubuntu 12.04+ versions )

1. Go to terminal and open pg_hba.conf file by this command sudo vi /etc/postgresql/9.1/main/pg_hba.conf

2. Add one line for your database user, ( Here I guess you are running with database user odoo )

local     all    odoo     trust

3. Restart Postgresql Database.

Now please try to create database.

Hope this helps,

see my edit above.
