Shutting down the server

The easiest way the shut down the server on a Linux system is to send the SIG INT signal to the server using the kill command (or if you are on its controlling terminal, by pressing ctrl-C). You may need to first run an additional command to know the process ID (PID) of the server.

  • Find the server PID.

    $ ps ax | grep openerp-server
    
  • Use the kill command with the server PID.

    $ kill -2 <pid>
