Install Odoo 8 on a CentOS 7 VPS

Leave reply

odooOdoo is a suite of business applications, organized in 6 groups: front-end applications, sales management applications, business operations applications, marketing applications, human resources and productivity applications.
The installation of Odoo 8 on a CentOS 7 VPS should take about ten minutes if you follow the very easy steps described below.

Remove MariaDB from your server:

yum remove mariadb mariadb-server

Ensure that your yum package repository is up to date and all installed packages have been upgraded with the latest bug fixes and security patches using the following commands:

yum clean all
yum update

Install PostgreSQL and PHP PostgreSQL extension:

yum install postgresql-libs postgresql-server postgresql php-pgsql php-gd

Install all prerequisite packages using the following command:

yum install babel python-devel libxslt-python pyparsing python-dateutil python-decorator python-imaging python-jinja2 python-ldap python-lxml python-mako python-psycopg2 python-reportlab python-requests python-werkzeug python-yaml python-docutils  python-matplotlib python-unittest2.noarch python-babel python-gevent pygtk2 glade3 pytz libxslt-devel bzr automake gcc gcc-c++ byacc kernel-headers

Restart the Apache web server:

systemctl restart httpd.service

Initialize the PostgreSQL database cluster:

postgresql-setup initdb

Configure the PostgreSQL service to start automatically on server boot:

systemctl enable postgresql.service

Start PostgreSQL service and set a password for the ‘postgres’ user:

systemctl start postgresql.service
su - postgres
psql
\password postgres
(Enter new password twice)
\q
exit

Create new system user named ‘odoo’:

adduser odoo
passwd odoo

Create ‘odoo’ user in PostgreSQL using the following command:

su - postgres -c "createuser --pwprompt --createdb --no-createrole --no-superuser odoo"
(Enter new 'odoo' user password twice)

Download the latest version of Odoo and extract it to the ‘/opt’ directory on your virtual server:

cd /opt 
wget http://nightly.odoo.com/8.0/nightly/src/odoo_8.0.latest.tar.gz
tar -xvzf /root/odoo_8.0.latest.tar.gz
mv odoo-8.* odoo
cd odoo

Install Odoo 8:

python setup.py install
cp openerp-server /usr/local/bin/odoo-server
mkdir -p /var/log/odoo/
touch /var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log
chown odoo /var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log
chmod 644 /var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log

Give the ‘odoo’ user permission to install new modules:

chown odoo -R /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/odoo-8*/openerp/addons/

Run the following commands:

vi ~odoo/.bashrc
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH; LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
source ~odoo/.bashrc

Edit the ‘/etc/odoo-server.conf’ configuration file and add the following lines:

[options]
; This is the password that allows database operations:
; admin_passwd = admin
db_host = localhost
db_port = 5432
db_user = odoo
db_password = False
addons_path = /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/odoo-8.0_20150306-py2.7.egg/openerp/addons/
#do not forget to change 'odoo-8.0_20150306-py2.7.egg' with the actual directory on your server
logfile = /var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log
log_level = error

Edit the ‘/var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf’ configuration file and allow local access to PostgreSQL databases:

vi /var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf
# TYPE  DATABASE        USER            ADDRESS                 METHOD

# "local" is for Unix domain socket connections only
local   all             all                                     trust # changed from 'peer'
# IPv4 local connections:
host    all             all             127.0.0.1/32            trust # changed from 'ident'
# IPv6 local connections:
host    all             all             ::1/128                 trust # changed from 'ident'

Optionally, if you want to allow remote access to PostgreSQL databases, add the following line to ‘/var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf’ configuration file:

host    all             all             0.0.0.0/0               md5

Check the PostgreSQL server encoding:

su - postgres
psql
postgres=# \l
                             List of databases
   Name    |  Owner   | Encoding  | Collate | Ctype |   Access privileges
-----------+----------+-----------+---------+-------+-----------------------
 postgres  | postgres | SQL_ASCII | C       | C     |
 template0 | postgres | SQL_ASCII | C       | C     | =c/postgres          +
           |          |           |         |       | postgres=CTc/postgres
 template1 | postgres | SQL_ASCII | C       | C     | =c/postgres          +
           |          |           |         |       | postgres=CTc/postgres

To change the template1 encoding to UTF8, run the following commands:

update pg_database set datallowconn = TRUE where datname = 'template0';
\c template0
update pg_database set datistemplate = FALSE where datname = 'template1';
drop database template1;
create database template1 with template = template0 encoding = 'UTF8';
update pg_database set datistemplate = TRUE where datname = 'template1';
\c template1
update pg_database set datallowconn = FALSE where datname = 'template0';
\q

Restart the PostgreSQL server:

systemctl restart postgresql.service

To start Odoo automatically when the server is booted, add a systemd unit file with the following content:

vi /usr/lib/systemd/system/odoo.service
[Unit]
Description=Advanced OpenSource ERP and CRM server
Requires=postgresql.service
After=postgresql.service
[Install]
Alias=odoo.service
[Service]
Type=simple
PermissionsStartOnly=true
EnvironmentFile=-/etc/conf.d/odoo-server
User=odoo
Group=odoo
SyslogIdentifier=odoo-server
PIDFile=/run/odoo/odoo-server.pid
ExecStartPre=/usr/bin/install -d -m755 -o odoo -g odoo /run/odoo
ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/odoo-server -c /etc/odoo-server.conf --pid=/run/odoo/odoo-server.pid --syslog $OPENERP_ARGS
ExecStop=/bin/kill $MAINPID
[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

The last thing left to do is enabling and starting up the service:

systemctl enable odoo.service

Start Odoo:

systemctl start odoo.service

Open http://your-server-IP:8069/web/database/manager and create a new database.

odoo vps

Then, you should be able to log in to the administrator back-end at http://server_IP:8069 using ‘admin’ as username and your newly created password. To reset your ‘admin’ password, navigate to:

Administrator -> Preferences -> Change password

That is it. Odoo 8 has been successfully installed on your CentOS 7 VPS.

Of course you don’t have to do any of this if you use one of our Linux VPS Hosting services, in which case you can simply ask our expert Linux admins to install Odoo for you. They are available 24×7 and will take care of your request immediately.

    This was a great guide for installing Odoo version 8 on Centos7. Came across this and followed it verbatim except used Webmin to create DB user and where I downloaded my files.

    You covered install, file permissions, config file settings, user creation and behavior for running Odoo, PostgreSQL settings and topped it off nicely with systemd config.

    The official RPM at this time isn’t working well. I tried a few different ways to remedy the issues with the RPM of Odoo 8 and really ended up with hours down the drain fixing the various pieces. Then came across this site got everything beyond where I had before but still not where I wanted since I had made so many changes. I then decided to ditch the VM with configs and files all over building another with Centos 7 guest system and this process worked very nicely as I said above.

    Now I can evaluate Odoo version 8 and so far it looks sweet. Not sure how they do the official documents for Odoo\OpenERP but this version should be right there.

    Thanks!

      1. Run the following command:

      chown openerp -R /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/openerp-8*/openerp/addons/

      2. Edit the ‘/etc/openerp-server.conf’ configuration file and add/modify the following line:

      addons_path = /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/openerp-8.0_8813815-py2.7.egg/openerp/addons/

      3. Restart Odoo:

      systemctl restart openerp.service

    Thanks for the great step through!

      the following line indicates that something went wrong on your side:

      Nov 16 05:58:54 vps1.bilbycare.com.au systemd[5211]: Failed at step USER spawning /usr/bin/install: No such process

      you may want to re-check if your configuration files are correct and consistent.

    Your installation script is very good. Everything okay, except, during installed the command “Installed /usr/lib/pytho”, it came up the following error and could not install the pydot.html. Could you advise how to solve it ?

    I followed this great tuto (almost… some yum python installs are not mentioned).

    But the DB manager does not work. It shows only Odoo logo and tons of 404 errors on JS, CSS files. I suppose a path needs to be changed. But where?

    root@server6.xxxx.com:~# cat /etc/openerp-server.conf
    [options]
    ; This is the password that allows database operations:
    ; admin_passwd = admin
    db_host = localhost
    db_port = 5432
    db_user = openerp
    db_password = False
    addons_path = /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/openerp-8.0_784665e-py2.7.egg/openerp/addons/
    logfile = /var/log/openerp/openerp-server.log
    log_level = error

    Thanks for this Article the reviews are very positive but i seem to be stuck at a point. I’m running a centos 6.6 and i’m stuck at the command – systemctl restart httpd.service -(For restarting the Apache web server). I copied and pasted it into my terminal when executed this is the feedback-( bash: systemctl: command not found). I tried skipping it and moving on to the next step, initializing the postgresql database cluster and i get the feedback -bash: postgresql-setup: command not found –
    its obvious i’m doing something wrong. I’m relatively new to linux os so i am a bit wet around the ears. Any assistance so i can get beyond this point would be appreciated thanks

      You cannot use the command ‘systemctl restart httpd.service’ on a CentOS 6. Please use the command ‘service httpd restart’ if you like to restart your Apache web server. Also, please note that this guide is written for CentOS 7, so it may not work properly on your CentOS 6.

    I correctly set the log file in openerp config file but i got nothing in the log file.
    I dont know why.
    this is the line that i put in config file :
    logfile = /var/log/openerp/openerp-server.log
    log_level = info
    I also execute this commandes line:
    bash#mkdir -p /var/log/openerp/
    bash#touch /var/log/openerp/openerp-server.log
    bash#chown openerp /var/log/openerp/openerp-server.log
    bash#chmod 644 /var/log/openerp/openerp-server.log

    Missing wget packages from “Install all prerequisite packages…”.

    It helps a lot install setuptools and pip before odoo:

    cd
    wget –no-check-certificate https://pypi.python.org/packages/source/s/setuptools/setuptools-1.4.2.tar.gz
    tar xzf setuptools-1.4.2.tar.gz
    cd setuptools-1.4.2
    python setup.py install
    cd

    curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pypa/pip/master/contrib/get-pip.py | python2.7 –

    Now you can install all packets what are listed in odoo/requirements.txt:
    pip install Babel
    pip install Jinja2
    pip install Mako
    pip install MarkupSafe
    pip install Pillow
    pip install PyYAML
    pip install Werkzeug
    pip install argparse
    pip install decorator
    pip install docutils
    pip install feedparser
    pip install gdata
    pip install gevent
    pip install greenlet
    pip install jcconv
    pip install lxml
    pip install mock
    pip install passlib
    pip install psutil
    pip install psycogreen
    pip install psycopg2
    pip install pyPdf
    pip install pydot
    pip install pyparsing
    pip install pyserial
    pip install python-dateutil
    pip install python-ldap
    pip install python-openid
    pip install pytz
    pip install pyusb
    pip install qrcode
    pip install reportlab
    pip install requests
    pip install simplejson
    pip install six
    pip install unittest2
    pip install vatnumber
    pip install vobject
    pip install wsgiref
    pip install xlwt

    One packet need to install by hand:
    cd
    wget http://download.gna.org/pychart/PyChart-1.39.tar.gz
    tar xzf PyChart-1.39.tar.gz
    cd PyChart-1.39
    python setup.py install

      If you follow the instructions closely and install all prerequisite packages, there is no need to install setuptools and pip.

      We tested the tutorial and it works as expected.

    Hi there. The instructions say:

    Run the following commands:
    vi ~odoo/.bashrc
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH; LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
    source ~odoo/.bashrc

    This just opens VI. Does it want me to insert the second line somewhere in the text document and then save it?

    It seems Ilkka Seittenranta is right. Odoo install fails if his steps are not done on Centos minimal install. Then you end up with the same error as everyone are writing about in here. After his step, you can install Odoo, and you will end up with

    “Finished processing dependencies for odoo==8.0-20150405”

    Now I am left struggling with the error that Cornelio is facing. And there is no logs indicating any error. odoo-server.log i 0 bytes.

    Have no idea on how to continue. Why not install from the RPM on odoo site?

    Regards, Lars.

            The requirement for six>=1.4 is from unittest2 since version 1.0.1.

            So I put unittest2 < 1.0.1 on setup.py and then I had the ImportError: cannot import name range
