In this context, we shall look into how to install Odoo on Debian 10.
Steps to install Odoo on Debian 10 Buster ?
1. Perform system update
Before we install any software, it’s important to make sure your system is up to date by running these following apt-get commands in the terminal:
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt upgrade
2. Install PostgreSQL
Run the following command to install PostgreSQL:
$ sudo apt install postgresql
After the installation is complete, make sure to enable the PostgreSQL server to start automatically upon server reboot with:
$ sudo systemctl enable postgresql
$ sudo systemctl start postgresql
3. Install Odoo on the system
First, We need to add Odoo apt repository to the Debian system:
$ wget -O - https://nightly.odoo.com/odoo.key | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb http://nightly.odoo.com/13.0/nightly/deb/ ./" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/odoo.list
Once the repository is added, install Odoo using the apt package manager:
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install odoo
After the installation of Odoo on Debian 10, the service is started automatically:
$ sudo systemctl status odoo
4. Configure Odoo.
Now we edit Odoo's configuration file and set the master admin password:
$ nano /etc/odoo/odoo.conf
Uncomment the 'admin_passwd' line, and set a password as shown below:
admin_passwd = YOUR_MASTER_PASSWORD
After that, restart the Odoo instance for the changes to take effect:
$ sudo systemctl restart odoo
5. Access Odoo Web Interface
Odoo will be available on HTTP port 8069 by default. Open your favorite browser and navigate to http://your-domain.com:8069 or http://server-ip-address:8069.
