LINE 1: ...."menu_id",res_users."alias_id",res_users."share",res_users....

Without success I already tried to restart the service like :

service openerp restart

Any idea ?

Do you have any non-official module installed?

I tested some android application and openerp works and the credential to login are correct. So in ssh can I disable some modules ? or reset to the default configuration of the modules?

Hi; default_section_id is a column added to the table res.users by the module sale_crm. At the other side, some other modules use this column (like crm_claim service_desk project_issue use this columns.

The error message "ProgrammingError: column res_users.default_section_id does not exist LINE 1: ...."menu_id",res_users."alias_id",res_users."share",res_users...." mean that this column is not found in the table res.users": cause: you have probably uninstalled a module or desactivated some features that deleted this column.

Try to remember which actions do you performed in your configuration !!! Maybe you have unchecked some boxes related to crm.

1_ Try to add this column directly in the postgres database table 2_ Try to reinstall the module sale_crm by starting your OpenERP instance with the -i sale_crm option

Thanks for your help, now I'm able to login but I lost all the valuable information like clients and projects. A few weeks ago I switched from sugarCRM but I kind regrate it. This is the first time that I see a software that gets corrupted only switching options on the configuration interface. I remember that I was checking and unchecking some options on the module sales and some seconds later I was configuring the invoicing module, applying changes and software crashed.

Use PgAdmin III (or miMas v3.1 or any other database tool) to browse your tables to see if you can recover your data. NEVER FORGET DATABASE BACKUP
