Odoo - distributed business apps
The flagship event, where the next version of Odoo is introduced, is called Odoo Experience, and is usually around November.
If we have Odoo running well on Cloudron before then, I think Cloudron could greatly boost the number of users by making a presentation at Odoo Experience. Last year, it was an online event, usually it is in-person and in Belgium.
@nj just a quick note about your latest improvements: ldap still does not work for me

@luckow did you try logging in for the second time? As I have mentioned, first-time login still fails. Also if you could raise an issue on Github with the contents of “/run/logs/odoo.log” as soon as you log in, I can look into it.
@nj Everything back to zero. Those who can read have an advantage. .... ! As you wrote: You have to use the mail address (instead of the username). And you have to reload the whole form.
Now it works as described (for me)

@nj Amazing work !!!
@luckow How much additional memory is Odoo using?
@LoudLemur this is package default:
Memory Limit : 2.5 GB
No idea if this is right or wrong. In my (few) test, the app is responsible.
I'm cross-posting a message sent in the sponsoring odoo topic.
For those interested in Odoo V10 CE, I've just updated my last script here :
I'm not maintaining it anymore, but it's working well for two years now (working with the ldap cloudron server).

@samir Is the install process the same as the other recently shared Odoo?
@samir Thank you very much for this. I know you are no longer maintaining this, but is it possible before you leave the project, if it does not take too much time, to incorporate the new script suggested here:
@girish Would it be possible to pick up the slack and add Odoo or Flectra in the near future to Cloudron? This would be amazing.
@LoudLemur The current script is based on the Yenthe666 script, I will publish an odoo12-ce-app very soon. It's pretty easy to adapt the script for odoo13 if you want it, though I've heard (to confirm) that the odoo based on even version are usually more stable than the odd one... I tend to pass the odd version, waiting for the even one.
In my opinion, it makes sense to have separate repo for each odoo version. It's not obvious to update a odoo version, since it requires a special script to update the database (and other stuff...)
I've just published the cloudron custom app odoo 12 CE here :
For using the cloudron ldap :
- Create first the user in odoo with an empty password
- open the ldap parameters in odoo (as admin, config>settings)
- enter into an odoo terminal and get the cloudron ldap parameters
- fill in the ldap cloudron parameters (ldap server address, binddn, port, password)
- For LDAP base : ou=users,dc=cloudron
- restart odoo app (or cloudron, I don't remember)
@samir Attempting from your script, stuck in a loop:

@doodlemania2 which script? Odoo 10 or odoo 12? Could you fill an issue on git directly to keep track of the issue? Thanks!
@samir that was from 12, will do so!
@girish Is this ready to be included as an experimental status Cloudron application yet?
@LoudLemur I don't think so - at least not yet. Unable to get it to install cleanly on my CR server, but I think it's close.
What is the latest on installing Odoo? Is it ready as a Cloudron Beta application yet?
but it's been working as a custom app on one of my instances for a few weeks. to get an idea of how odoo works and what you need to learn to implement an erp system in your company, it's top. as a reliable critical app for your company (without knowledge about content migration), you should wait until odoo is an official cloudron app.
@luckow When that day happens, I shall be grinning from ear to ear! I shall probably be jumping up and down in joy too!
@nj thanks for your packaging efforts! I just tried to run odoo and it wouldn't start, it was always looping the
First run. Initializing DB...bit. I've jumped in the terminal and ran the cmds manually and eventually figured out, that the
/app/dataneeded chowning to the cloudron-user before it worked - which it now does! So all we need to do is add
@msbt Odoo Community edition hosted on Cloudron would be a massive value add to the Cloudron portfolio. I totally recommend using Cloudron in a business to structure and improve processes. Unless your company has the budget to run Salesforce, or Service Now to do the same.
@makemrproper There is a large and active development community for Odoo. I think it would be quite excited to hear about a Beta of Odoo on Cloudron and they could contribute quite a lot. Hopefully, the other great applications available on Cloudron would catch their notice too, and people would join us.
I hope we are still making progress on supporting Odoo Community Edition on Cloudron.
I think Cloudron users are aware of how powerful a tool Cloudron is. Odoo is a bit like Cloudron, in that it offers one click deployment of modules.
Unlike Cloudron, all the modules on Odoo are built to be interoperable. They push data to each other as needed, populating fields and helping you with auto-fill and reducing laboriousness of many manual tasks.
If you are familiar with Nextcloud (which is of course on Cloudron) then you will be right at home with Odoo.
@LoudLemur I too hope to see odoo in Cloudron soon. A lot of things would be simplified for us.
@nebulon What is the latest on packaging Odoo for Cloudron? Is there any more progress?
