Odoo (formerly known as OpenERP) is a full-blown ERP system for managing everything from invoices over inventory management to point-of-sale. It is completely Open-Source and can be modified and extended by writing own modules in Python.
# wget https://nightly.odoo.com/extra/wkhtmltox-0.12.1.2_linux-jessie-amd64.deb # dpkg -i wkhtmltox-0.12.1.2_linux-jessie-amd64.deb
Otherwise the PDF report generation won't work.
We will create a new postgres user for odoo with rights to create new databases. We do that to seperate other databases in this PostgreSQL instance from the odoo databases. Execute the following commands as root:
# su postgres # createuser -d -P -S odoo
Enter a password for the new odoo database user, and set it in the odoo configuration file
[options] ; This is the password that allows database operations: ; admin_passwd = admin db_host = localhost db_port = 5432 db_user = odoo db_password = <new password> addons_path = /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/addons
Restart the odoo service by executing
service odoo restart and navigate to
http://localhost:8069 to create a new database.
