I downloaded latest nightly build and run ./openerp-server. Then from browser I gave http://localhost:8069. Now the server loads with first database in database list as I have attempted to login in that database.

Thanks in advance

I noticed that, after creating a database for version 7, and login in it, the next time when server starts with this new database.! Have any suggestion please to remove it?

When the server starts, it show a warning as following.

/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/Babel-0.9.5-py2.6.egg/babel/__init__.py:33: UserWarning: Module openerp was already imported from /home/user_name/workspace/openerp-7.0/openerp/__init__.pyc, but /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/openerp_server-6.1_dev-py2.6.egg is being added to sys.path from pkg_resources import get_distribution, ResolutionError

Te last used database is stored in a cookie: last_used_database.

To disable the "auto load" (worked for me): disable cookie_db in server/openerp/addons/web/controllers/main.py

    # 2 use the database from the cookie if it's listable and still listed
#    cookie_db = req.httprequest.cookies.get('last_used_database')
#    if cookie_db in dbs:
#       db = cookie_db

You can specify the database in your openerp-server.conf file: DB_NAME = "your-database-name"

Basically the database information will be added to the URL: localhost:8069/?db="your-database-name"

In configuration file, no database name is mentioned, but it loads with one database. How I can block it. I need to load only after I select database and attempt to login. I seems, that it happens on change of that database field, I hope if I modify that code it will get resolved.
