Odoo Help


Starting odoo: start-stop-daemon: group 'odoo' not found

I am trying to set up odoo as a system service.

Starting odoo manually works: ./odoo.py -c /etc/odoo/openerp-server.conf

But whenever I try "service odoo start" I get this error:

Starting odoo: start-stop-daemon: group 'odoo' not found

Thank you.

This solved my problem:

sudo groupadd odoo
sudo usermod -a -G odoo odoo

I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how
