How to Install Odoo in Debian or Ubuntu

Last updated April-15-2022

Once you are logged in, run the following command to update all installed packages to the latest available version

apt-get update && apt upgrade

3. Install PostgreSQL server

Odoo requires a PostgreSQL database to store its information, so we will have to install the PostgreSQL server. We will install a PostgreSQL server using the following command:

apt-get install postgresql

Once installed, start the PostgreSQL server and enable it to start at server boot.

systemctl start postgresql
systemctl enable postgresql

3. Add repository and install Odoo

Odoo is not available in the official Ubuntu 16.04 repository, so in order to install it, we will need to add the Odoo repository to the server. In order to do it, run the following commands – Just add the source list based on the version you are looking to install

Odoo 10

wget -O - | apt-key add - echo "deb ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/odoo.list

Odoo 11

wget -O - | apt-key add - echo "deb ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/odoo.list

Odoo 12

wget -O - | apt-key add -
echo "deb ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/odoo.list

Odoo 15
wget -O - | apt-key add -
echo "deb ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/odoo.list

4. Install Odoo 10/11/12/15 on Ubuntu

Next, update the local package database

apt-get update

and install Odoo using the apt package manager

apt-get install odoo

This command will install Odoo, Python 3 and all necessary Python modules, create PostgreSQL user and start the Odoo instance. After the installation is completed, you can check the status of the Odoo service:

nano /etc/odoo/odoo.conf

Uncomment the ‘admin_passwrd’ line, and change the admin_password field with a strong password.

admin_passwd = STRONG_PASSWORD

Install wkhtmltopd

tar vxf wkhtmltox-0.12.3_linux-generic-amd64.tar.xz 
cp wkhtmltox/bin/wk* /usr/local/bin/
systemctl restart odoo
