Hello Community, As we know OpenERP(v7) / ODOO(v8) is an open source suit of ERP business applications. We will guide you how you can easily create auto-startup script of ODOO(v8). Open the Terminal First by Pressing CTRL+T Keys. Now proceed as per the following steps to create auto-startup script for V8 (odoo):

Required Files for auto-startup scripts are :

1. init file

2. conf file

3. log file

We have  INIT file and CONF file stored in its default location(/odoo/debian).

INIT file is named init and CONF file is named openerp-server.conf.

  1. Create the LOG file and give permissions.
sudo nano /var/log/odoo-server.log
sudo chmod 777 /var/log/odoo-server.log

sudo cp /home/serpentcs/odoo/debian/openerp-server.conf /etc/odoo-server.conf
sudo cp /home/serpentcs/odoo/debian/init /etc/init.d/odoo-server
sudo chmod 755 /etc/odoo-server.conf
sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/odoo-serve
3. Editing CONF file. (NOTE: Edit this file according your db user, db password and addons path)
sudo nano /etc/odoo-server.conf
[options] ; This is the password that allows database operations: ; admin_passwd = admin db_host = localhost db_port = 5432 db_user = serpentcs db_password = serpentcs addons_path = /home/serpentcs/odoo/addons/
