Hey guys,

Look at my starting log... It says that I have version 8.0. But NO TRACE of my subversion... Where could I find it please?

Hello here!

Here is our own solution to this problem we had since many montHOW TO UPDATE OUR ODOO FILE

1) We won't use Github anymore to update our Odoo files.

2) We will download the latest src files at 

3) Use a kind of file structure like this one :

  • In addons_ext, all the modules we download on odoo app site;

  • In addons_pt, all our own modules;

  • One folder for each downloaded Odoo version on https://nightly.odoo.com/8.0/nightly/src/


4) Put a line like this in your /etc/odoo/openerp-server-test.conf

  • addons_path = /home/odoo-test/addons_pt,/home/odoo-test/addons_ext,/home/odoo-test/odoo-8.0-20150503/openerp/addons

5) run odoo with a line like this one in terminal :

  • killall -v python -u odoo-test; clear; /home/odoo-test/odoo-8.0-20150503/openerp-server -c /etc/odoo/openerp-server-test.conf -db_user=odoo-test --db_password=ozzyest --log-level=info --db-filter=03test --database=03test

6) And now, we know which build version is running in the terminal, where we run Odoo server.

We think it is easy to implement, simple and flexible enough for future update.

I don't know if is enough for help but you can have a look on ~odoo/openerp/release.py, at line 33.

In my case the version_info = (8, 0, 0, Final, 0).

There was another way, using


available since V6.1,but isn't working anymore via http... Now it's returning the error

Bad Request

<function version_info at 0x7ffad1c086e0>, /web/webclient/version_info: Function declared as capable of handling request of type 'json' but called with a request of type 'http'

I have no idea if there are others places where you can find information about subversion.

Thanks a lot for your answer. It helps me.
