Hello from France !

I want to transfert all of my OpenERP datas from an old computer to a new, but when I save the data from the old one to restore them on the new one, it does work.

How to do that ?

Thanks !

It's possible to do a bckup from the postgresql. You can use for example pgadmin.

unless I am mistaken, a simple backup does not transfer data and OpenERP function from one computer to another. In any case, I have not been able to transfert my openERP to another computer.

Of course I hace installed openERP to destination computer before restore the BDD...

When I restore on the new computer, there was an error :


<title>500 Internal Server Error</title>

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.

  • Copy the entire addons/ directory from the old machine and replace it in your new computer's OpenERP installation base.
  • Restart the server
  • Backup the database and restore it in the new computer

It's possible to backup your data directly using postgresql (using for example pgadmin) or commad line. After you can restore datas usang the same way
