Install Odoo 8 on Ubuntu 14.04

Hi guys,

In this tutorial I will learn you how to install Odoo 8 on Ubuntu 14.04, thanks to a script from André Schenkels.
The first step is to create a new .sh file on your Ubuntu machine, wherever you’d like this.
For example right under /home. Open up an Ubuntu terminal and cd to the directory where you’d like to keep the script and then create the file.

Next add the following code in to the file:

There are some things you can configure/change to your likings. If you’d like Odoo 7 you should change OE_VERSION=”8.0″ to “7.0”. Be sure to change the Odoo super administrator password out of safety.
The next step is to make this file executable. After you’ve made it executable you can execute it and everything will be installed automaticly.
do this with the following command:

Now that the file is executable simply run the execute command ./ and the Odoo will be installed automaticly!

Give this a while since it will need to download all dependencies, download Odoo and install it.
Browse to http://localhost:8069/ and you’ll see you have a brand new Odoo 8 installed.

      Hi Randy,

      I’m really going to need more information than ‘I cant start the Odoo 8.0’.. What are you getting/not getting? Do you get an internal server error, is the Odoo service running, …?

  2. changed the psql port to 5432.
    to do this:
    sudo nano /etc/postgresql/9.3/main/postgresql.conf

    Now it boots odoo and I get to create a database 😀

    So I think its because I had an old instance of Odoo running on Docker, so unclean server environment.

    Thank you for the script.

      Hi Matt,

      Happy to hear you’ve got things going! Indeed sounds like you had an old instance running around somewhere that was causing this. I’m going to delete the other comments since they’re very long and you fixed your own problem.
      Thanks for the feedback 🙂

      Hi Samuel,

      The script should work just fine. If it doesn’t please post why it doesn’t and what your error is on Github.com/Yenthe666/InstallScript
