Update Odoo 8

Hello, I have Odoo 8 working with some custom modules. How can I update that with the latest builds of Odoo 8 without losing my development?

Edit: I am mistaken, YML like syntax, but not YML

Place your custom modules somewhere outside Odoo base installation folder, for example at /opt/odoo/external_modules , and add this to /etc/openerp-server.conf:

    addons_path =  ... (base Odoo module path),/opt/odoo/external_modules

Then you can update your odoo base installation without affecting your custom modules. This will be broken if you are upgrading instead between version, e.g from V8 to V9.

Ok, I have Windows 7 64 bits, this works too? Thanks

It should work. The path of openerp-server.conf on Windows is %PROGRAMFILES%\Odoo 8.0-id\server\openerp-server.conf.

Have I to put there only the custom modules or the entire "addons" folder?

You have to put the base Odoo modules first, separated by comma (,), then your custom modules paths, each separated by comma
