Foreword (Read for background info)
So first off, I am running my OpenERP server on a Windows Server 2003 machine. This Windows Server 2003 is a virtual machine hosted on the network. I can work on the web-client smoothly when connected remotely to the IP adress of the virtual machine, when working this way I never face any issues.
I can also access the web-client from my local machine when I'm either connected to the network, or connected by VPN, and enter the IP address + port in my webbrowser. Initially everything seemed to be working properly, but then I kept facing the same error-prompt.
A big white window reading: "XmlHttpRequestError". I noticed I sometimes encountered this error message in a certain menu, and another moment I wouldn't face that error in the same menu. After some extensive web-searching and testing I was able to deduce this is related to a proxy read time-out. Namely if the server, or web-client, takes too much time to process information/data - it will throw up this error-message instead.
Solution to my problem: increase the proxy_read_timeout from the default 60 seconds to a higher value. It is well documented how to do this for Openerp 6.1, and linux Openerp 7 distro's; but I can't find any information whatsoever on how to do this in a windows environment.
I found out I need to add configuration line âproxy_read_timeout 300;â somewhere after the first string âlocationâ in â/etc/nginx/sites-available/openerpâ file.
Problem being I have no such location/ file under my OS. If anyone could explain me in which windows file I could make the necessary changes, I would very much appreciate that gesture. So far I've tried editting the openerp-server.conf and postgresql.conf file but my changes brought no change.
