I created a install script for ODOO on a brand new Ubuntu 14.04 server. This script can be used for installing 7.0, saas-4, saas-5 (new after Opendays) and master branches of the ODOO server.

If you are looking for a ODOO v8 install script take a look at: ODOO v8 Install Script

The install script can be found here:



In the script there are some parameters you can set at this time:


OE_VERSION: choose the ODOO version you want to install 7.0, saas-4 or master (trunk)

General OpenERP Settings

OE_USER: the user the odoo deamon uses
OE_HOME: the folder where the odoo-server resides
OE_CONFIG: the name of the config file

If you want to use the script copy the file to the server or paste the contents in a odoo_install.sh file.

Make the file executable and start with ./odoo_install.sh


If you have run the script you should have a working ODOO server wich is available at: http://ipadress-server:8069

The server will auto start on reboot and you can start en stop the OpenERP server with /etc/init.d/odoo-server stop (to stop) or /etc/init.d/odoo-server (to start)
