Hello,

Up to now, we worked with openerp v5 (server installed on ubuntu). I succeed in save my database thanks to postgres tool (pg_dump). A big file without extension has been generated.

When i try to restore this database on my new server (v6/windows 7) via manager database openerp v6 tool, i have a error message saying "impossible to restore the database".

1/When i save a db from my openerp v5 (ubuntu), am i obliged to use a the openERPmanagerDB or i can also use postgresql tools like pgadmin or pg_dump?

2/According to you, why i receive this error message? For restoring, the file must be in what format? What file formats are supported?

In advance, thank you to throw light for me.

between V5 and V6 sn't the same structure of database...

Hello. Ok. I just installed a temporary openerp v5 all in one on my windows station. But it's always the same thing. I can't browse a dump file saved from my old linux ubuntu server (openerp v5 also) thanks to postgrestools(pg_dump). Why? these are the same versions of the software. I have this error message saying : the db can't be restored.

You can not restore a v5 database in a v6 database because the table structure changes from version to version. I am afraid you will need to migrate with Python scripts
