Standalone Installation Of OpenERP 7.0

on 2/16/13, 6:26 AM 4,032 views

I want to install OpenERP 7.0, without affecting the OpenERP 6.1 which is already installed in my system.

Is it possible if i choose a different path to install OpenERP 7.0

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.

Thanks in Advance.

You cannot install both versions using the package manager, because they are considered different versions of the same package: one will replace the other.

You can however install one from source, configure it to use different ports, and leave the other package installed.

Without changing the ports for either one of them, they will both exist on your machine, but only one can be running at a given time. To run them both simultaneously, you must change the ports of either one.

I would rather create a virtual environment with virtualenv. Problem is not the source files, but the libraries used by each version

That is not a problem. Both 6.1 and 7.0 will work with the same library versions.

yes, i actually did that so how can i change the ports of the OpenERP 7?

  1. Use the command line option: --xmlrpc-port=XMLRPC_PORT; or
  2. Add xmlrpc_port = XMLRPC_PORT to the configuration file (default is /etc/openerp/openerp-server.conf)

Replace XMLRCP_PORT with the port number you want to use. Default is 8069, so try 8169.
