Openbravo ERP 2.50 installation steps in ubuntu (default installation)

Hi Folks,

There are ‘n’ number of ways presented in Openbravo community to try or work with Openbravo ERP. But I felt most of them were too big for novices. So I have presented my compiled version of installing Openbravo in Ubuntu. There is a virtual box appliance that is far more easier to install than this, but lemme get to its disadvantages in a later post.

  • Adding canonical partner repositories.

$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

In the file that opens up add the following lines,

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu karmic partner

deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu karmic partner

  • Installing and Deploying the Application

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install openbravo-erp

This will install openbravo cluster,apache tomcat,postgres. Openbravo uses its own properties so the post numbers are not the default ones.

To run the application, type the follwing in the browser menu.

http://localhost/openbravo

User Credentials:

Username: Openbravo

Password: openbravo

Other Options:

  • Creating Backup

$ sudo /etc/init.d/openbravo-erp stop

$ cd /opt

$ tar cvzf OpenbravoERP-2.50.tar.gz OpenbravoERP-2.50

  • Restoring from the backup

$ sudo /etc/init.d/openbravo-erp stop

$ cd /opt

$ rm

$ tar xvzpf OpenbravoERP-2.50.tar.gz

$ sudo /etc/init.d/openbravo-erp start

  • Uninstall

There are two options available to uninstall. we can update the database to the recent level or leave it to the last compiled state.

Uninstall maintaining the database

$ sudo apt-get remove openbravo-erp

Uninstall without maintaining the database

$ sudo apt-get remove –purge openbravo-erp

  • Startup Options

Openbravo is configured to automatically start at run-time. but in case its not in a dedicated server, we can change those options…

To disable startup at boot time:

$ update-rc.d -f openbravo-erp remove

Manually starting openbravo:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/openbravo-erp start

Enable start up at boot time:

$ update-rc.d openbravo-erp defaults

Hope this serves as a small window to make you look through the Openbravo Universe.

    When logged on the left pane keeps on loading for a long time. Why is it happening?

    • Shankar Balachandran says:

      Could be because the Application could not have compiled properly. Could you give a Compile.Complete.Deploy and then check?
