Odoo is an all-in-one management software that offers a range of business applications that form a complete suite of enterprise management applications. The Odoo solution is ideal for SMEs, but fits both small and large companies alike. Odoo is an all-in-one business software capable of covering all business needs, including CRM, Website/e-Commerce, billing, accounting, manufacturing, warehouse- and project management, and inventory, all seamlessly integrated

You can discuss this howto here on the forums.


For SME Server 10

You need to enable the epel and the odoo10-nightly or the odoo9-nightly repositories first. Then:


cd /root
yum install postgresql-server
postgresql-setup initdb
systemctl enable postgresql
systemctl start postgresql

PDF converter

The wkhtmltox available from CentOS or epel are a lower version then required for Odoo. Also those versions do not convert headers and footers. So we get the latest stable directly from the source.

yum install fontconfig libpng libX11 libXext libXrender xorg-x11-fonts-Type1 xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi
wget https://github.com/wkhtmltopdf/wkhtmltopdf/releases/download/0.12.4/wkhtmltox-0.12.4_linux-generic-amd64.tar.xz
unxz wkhtmltox-0.12.4_linux-generic-amd64.tar.xz
tar -xvf wkhtmltox-0.12.4_linux-generic-amd64.tar
mv wkhtmltox/bin/* /usr/bin/
rm -rf wkhtmltox
rm -f wkhtmltox-0.12.4_linux-generic-amd64.tar


Depending on your choice you can either use the odoo9-nightly repository or the odoo10-nightly repository. Here we use the odoo9-nightly repository..

yum install odoo --enablerepo=odoo9-nightly,epel
systemctl enable odoo
systemctl start odoo

Odoo as a SME Service

The odoo service needs to be adjusted to be used as init.d service opposed to systemd.

config set odoo service TCPPort 8069 status enabled access public
ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/e-smith-service /etc/rc7.d/S92odoo
signal-event remoteaccess-update

Browse to http://yourserver:8069 and follow instructions.
