Hi Samba,

There is a difference between the password and the master password, have you double checked that you're not using the wrong one? You can always find the master password in the odoo-server.conf file though! It basically inside of your etc folder, so find and open it. You'll find this line:

admin_passwd = admin

admin is the master password, which is needed for taking dumps etc.

Thank you Yenthe, I am using odoo-7

Then check the file openerp-server.conf under /etc/ it will be in that file :)

Is it possible to know my master password. I remember my master password but for cross checki. I have created another database with the master password. it is created. When i taked the same db backup using this password, it is giving access denied alert box.

That file is not there in my /etc folder. I am running server manually from odoo folder like this. I will render to odoo folder and run this command. ./openerp-server --addons ./addons

Well where the file is and how its named is depending on how you've installed it. Do a search for the file on your whole system, it has to be there. But it could also have another name such as odoo-server.conf for example.
