OpenERP Web Installation

The installation is very simple. There are 5 stages :

  1. Welcome message.

  2. OEPL Licence Acceptation

  3. Shortcut in the Start menu.

  4. Confirmation Choices

  5. Automatic installation

You have to install, configure and run the OpenERP Server before using the OpenERP Web. The web client needs the server to run. You can install the server application on your computer, or on an independent server accessible by network.

Downloading the OpenERP Web

The OpenERP Web can be downloaded from the OpenERP website's download page

Installing the OpenERP Web

Click on the executable installation file you've just downloaded and select the installation path.

Preparing the web server for the first time run

The Windows service for OpenERP Web Server is installed during the installation and it's set up to start the server automatically on system boot.

The configuration file is now automatically saved in the installation directory, in:

C:\Program Files\OpenERP Web\conf\openerp-web.conf

Starting the web server

Now as the web server is initialized and the settings are saved, you can finally start the OpenERP Web Server service.
