Replace the addons folder

on 7/10/14, 11:56 AM 1,042 views


I would like to know if it's possible to replace the addons folder by another one recovered from another machine. Because, when I do that, I get the following errors:

The `web` module is provided by the addons found in the `openerp-web` project.
Maybe you forgot to add those addons in your addons_path configuration.

This error shows that your OpenERP is trying to add a report which already exists, namely "report.account.analytic.journal". 

You could try to uncomment that report and retry. An alternative is to remove the report from the database so it can be "regenerated".

Addons directory where the web module seems to miss , you must add in your config file:

addons_paths: C:\Users\Admin\workspace\openerp-7.0\openerp\addons, C:\Users\Admin\workspace\openerp-7.0\addons

Thank yout but i still have the same error.

Here is the content of the openerp-server.conf file:

; This is the password that allows database operations:
; admin_passwd = admin
db_host = False
db_port = False
db_user = openpg
db_password = openpgpwd
addons_paths: C:\Users\Admin\workspace\openerp-7.0\openerp\addons, C:\Users\Admin\workspace\openerp-7.0\addons
pg_path = C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenERP 7.0-20131016-232725\PostgreSQL\bin
