I need to make a database dump for a programmer who will build some reports for me. I understand that this dump will create an empty copy of my db with structure, so he can analyze the tables and build reports based on the fields I have.
I was told by the tech who installed openerpv6.1.1, to go to the Ubuntu terminal and retrieve the password by typing in a command. I get the admin password but when I type it into the Manage Databases -> Backup form, I get an Access Denied popup.
What am I doing wrong?
First thing you have to know is that creating reports on OpenERP by attacking the DB straight is a bad practice. You might rather favor one of the many tools available like the Pentaho connector, the Jaspersoft connector, the Google Spreadsheet connector,... but this is not the question.
If you want to retrieve the database password, you should get the openerp-server config file on the server machine, open it, and find the right variable.
