Odoo Help

My problem was related to compatibility issues from a previous postgresql installation. I searched my registry for all postgresql and openerp related keys, deleted them all - and then reinstalled postgresql and openerp completly. After initial configuration I was able to recover most of my dump files, and have been running without major problems so far.

If you can connect to your server from the local machine in a web browser pointed to localhost:8069 - Your problem is probably with windows firewall.

This Microsoft article gives some good details on how to open up a port in windows firewall - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308127

Configure Odoo

This is for 10, but will work for all versions

In C:\Program Files (x86)\Odoo 10.0\server

change (where your IP is -- update accordingly)

db_host = localhost


db_host =

Configure PostgreSQL

In C:\Program Files (x86)\Odoo 10.0\PostgreSQL\data\pg_hba.conf

Add the following line

host    all             all               md5

Restart Server

Go to Windows Services and restart the following services:

  • odoo-server-10.0 10.0

  • PostgreSQL_For_Odoo - PostgreSQL Server 9.5

Test Firewall

go to on your local device. It should work.

Then try on an external device on the internal network. If it fails on the external device, disable windows firewall and try again. If it works, then add an exception for C:\Program Files (x86)\Odoo 10.0\server\odoo-bin.exe

I have the same problem on a W7, I completely disabled the firewall and does not work :(, any ideas?

this config file Laurens touched, what did he change exactly?

Thanks, Akma

Do not change anything in the config files, that is completely unnecessary. The first thing you need to confirm is that you can access your openerp install by navigating to localhost:8069 - if you can do that then openerp does not need to be touched - it is a problem with your settings in windows

actually, changing "localhost" for the IP of the server in 2 places in that config file, fixed the problem :)

Indeed, I changed the host in the config file. Don't forget to check the postgresql config files from your Pgadmin client. Important to note is that you need to format the host as IP / subnetmask. For instance: 192.168.xxx.xxx/24.
