Set default database for default website with multiple databases on same server instance

on 2/3/15, 10:04 AM 2,626 views


I have installed another database on my Odoo server instance and now, my url redirects me to the selection of the database instead of the default website I created with my first database.

I am asking you how I can correct this to get the website appear by default instead of database selector screen.

Thanks for your support.


Thanks for the answers, I'll try what I can with the infos. For the moment, I backed up the database to reinstall it on another server and dropped the last one. Best regards, José

Some people call me a karma whore, I only ask for 10 points if you like my answer and 15 if I happen to get it correct.

You want to use --db-filter:<dbname> for this.  See the odoo documentation for more details.
