Hi boys, I have installed original UBUNTU distro on virtual server. So, where I can find openerp files and addons directory?

I have one files on : 1) /var/lib/~python-support/python2.7/openerp but this is only simlinks ??

Another files are : 2) /usr/share/pyshared/openerp

but when I uploaded module to 2) - openerp dont´t found it... When I uploaded to 1) - it´s OK... But why I have this files 2x?

If you've installed from .deb version.

Write on your console:

 sudo nano /etc/openerp/openerp-server.conf

And you'll find there the addons path, also you can add more addons paths separated by ","

Usually modules are here: /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons

Number one, is the normal place for python 2.7 on ubunto. var/lib/python-support/python2.7 So that's oke, but you normally don't have any openerp directory below.

If you install openerp normally it asked for a location like:

/opt/openerp/ <----- is this available on your system. The add-ons are normally under /opt/openerp/server-version/add-ons.

In that way, if you will update your python version openerp will normally be able to work with a new version.

Number two is something that's been installed for shared libraries between python.
