In a production environment you should be very careful and prevent external 
access to the database manager, typically thanks to the dbfilter and possibly 
extra rewrite rules in your vhosts.

Why don't you simply start a second Odoo server on a different port on the same 
machine, with no dbfilter parameter? You could make it listen to an interface 
and port where only you can connect, which would increase the security of your 
setup, and/or configure another nginx virtual host for it if you need, e.g with 
password protection.
