I have tried following command to change addons path but still it is showing me same error
./openerp-servver --addons=<path for test2 addons> --config=<path for config file of test2 instance>
Easy and best way to resolve this error
give me up votes if answer helps you .
List of currently running services,
$ ps -ef
$ ps -ef | grep openerp-server
$ ps -ef | grep openerp-server
pc 6399 2391 0 14:06 pts/1 00:00:02 python ./openerp-server
pc 7488 2391 0 14:39 pts/1 00:00:00 grep --color=auto openerp-server
Did you notice above result PID (6399) running openerp. Kill that service using following command,
$ sudo kill -9 -6399
Now services is completely stop, you can start again normally.
Here are some basic commands you need to know.
ps -ef | grep openerp-server
This will show you all the instances of openerp that are already running.
When the server runs, it occupies a port (binds to port 8069) and if you try to run the server once more, you get this error.
Now, you will very likely see some output for the previous command which shows that the server is already running (if you have installed using sudo apt-get install openerp, the server is automatically started as a service for you)
use this command to stop the process (only if you really have to) kill <pid> where <pid> is the number you see in the first column of the command ps -ef ... above.
Now you can try starting the server once more.
openerp/tools/config.py is not the configuration file.
You need to create an actual configuration file named
openerp-server.conf, here is a simple one: LINK to get started.
You can get details on individual config values here:
Run your server with argument
[Errno98] means that a Port is already in use by another application !!!
The question is: Which Application and which port ???
This can be done as described by Ram perf (ps -ef | grep openerp-server).
You will probably found that it's openerp-server running on port 8069.
The second question now is: Why you are getting this [Error98] when starting the Second instance and not when starting the First instance ???
This is because when you started the first instance, the default port 8069 is Free ....
But, when you start the second instance the port 8069 is in use by the first instance.
Tthe Second question leads to a Third Question: Which port (we are talking about) ???
The port is: 8069 , Cause it' already in use by the first Instance (test1).
The next question (you may QUESTION , Mr Vaihbav) is: But I'm running the Second instance on port 8099 not on port 8069 ??
No Mr Vaihbab, you are running the second instance (test2) also on port 8069. Cause you did not changed the port of the second instance in the openerp-server.conf, and it's still using the default port 8069 !!!
What you should do now: Change the port of the second instance to 8099 in the server configuration file "openerp-server.conf" of the second instance.
You don't have to kill any other running process. Just re-start the second instance with the right config file on the right port.
If you do a Kill, you will kill the first instance, and i suppose that you need the 2 instances running.
If you want to verify, Take a look at your log file (or look in your console log), to see which port is already in use.
Last thing: The configuration of an OpenERP instance is entirely handled by the openerp-server.conf and by the parameters you pass to the server when starting from command line (Shell) or included in a script.
