Where is the configuration file for ubuntu repository method install?

I was able to successfully use this method for installing OpenERP in Ubuntu.

To install the Debian/Ubuntu package, add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb nightly.openerp.com/7.0/nightly/deb/ ./

And type: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install openerp

The service fires up great and I can access on port 8069.

But now I need to change the admin password and secure OpenERP so that people can't just get in and make their own databases. I have looked around but for the life of me I can't find the openerp-server.conf file.

I can't seem to find where you would pass the command paramters on in the start up to generate the config file. Is there someone that can help me out here?

The command-line parameter to generate the config file is:

 -s          save configuration to ~/.openerp_serverrc

You can also find a sample file in

server/install/openerp-server.conf

take a look in /etc/ for openerp-server.conf

Pretty sure that this is no longer correct for v8

To change the admin password of the ADMIN, go with the webbrowser to your server. Under the login part (username & password) are two links. Use the left one: 'Manage Databases'

On the left side, the last option is called Password. here you can change the password of the ADMIN of openERP.

So there is no need to edit any config file yourself (I wonder if that will change the password of the ADMIN on the databases...).
