Installing Odoo Prerequisites Packages on CentOS 7:

Odoo requires some Python libraries that are available in Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) and IUS Community yum repositories. Therefore, we have to install these yum repositories.

Install IUS Community yum repository as follows.

Create Users and Directories for Odoo 13 Server:

Create a PostgreSQL database user for Odoo.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# su - postgres -c "createuser -s odoo"

Create an Linux user to own Odoo software and processes.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# adduser --system --home-dir=/opt/odoo --shell=/bin/bash -m odoo

Create directories as required by Odoo.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# mkdir /etc/odoo [root@odoo-server-01 ~]# mkdir /var/log/odoo/

Adjust ownership of these directories.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# chown -R odoo:odoo /opt/odoo/ [root@odoo-server-01 ~]# chown -R odoo:odoo /var/log/odoo/


Installing Odoo 13 Server on CentOS 7:

Download the latest source of Odoo from Github using git command.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# git clone --depth=1 /opt/odoo/odoo Cloning into '/opt/odoo/odoo'... remote: Enumerating objects: 26830, done. remote: Counting objects: 100% (26830/26830), done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (22141/22141), done. remote: Total 26830 (delta 7800), reused 12110 (delta 3826), pack-reused 0 Receiving objects: 100% (26830/26830), 114.21 MiB | 201.00 KiB/s, done. Resolving deltas: 100% (7800/7800), done. Checking out files: 100% (23948/23948), done.

Odoo source contains a file requirements.txt that contains list of required Python libraries. We can easily install all required Python libraries as follows.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# pip3.6 install -r /opt/odoo/odoo/requirements.txt ... Running install for lxml ... done Running install for ebaysdk ... done Running install for feedparser ... done Running install for greenlet ... done Running install for gevent ... done Running install for html2text ... done Running install for MarkupSafe ... done Running install for Mako ... done Running install for ofxparse ... done Running install for psutil ... done Running install for pydot ... done Running install for pyldap ... done Running install for PyPDF2 ... done Running install for pyusb ... done Running install for reportlab ... done Running install for vatnumber ... done Running install for vobject ... done Successfully installed Jinja2-2.10.1 Mako-1.0.4 MarkupSafe-0.23 Pillow-5.4.1 PyPDF2-1.26.0 Werkzeug-0.14.1 XlsxWriter-0.9.3 appdirs-1.4.3 attrs-19.3.0 beautifulsoup4-4.8.1 cached-property-1.5.1 certifi-2019.11.28 defusedxml-0.6.0 ebaysdk-2.1.5 feedparser-5.2.1 gevent-1.1.2 greenlet-0.4.10 html2text-2016.9.19 idna-2.7 isodate-0.6.0 libsass-0.12.3 lxml-3.7.1 mock-2.0.0 num2words-0.5.6 ofxparse-0.16 passlib-1.6.5 pbr-5.4.4 polib-1.1.0 psutil-4.3.1 psycopg2- pydot-1.2.3 pyldap-2.4.28 pyparsing-2.1.10 pyserial-3.1.1 python-dateutil-2.5.3 python-stdnum-1.12 pyusb-1.0.0 qrcode-5.3 reportlab-3.3.0 requests-2.20.0 requests-toolbelt-0.9.1 six-1.13.0 soupsieve-1.9.5 urllib3-1.24.3 vatnumber-1.2 vobject-0.9.3 xlrd-1.0.0 xlwt-1.3.0 zeep-3.1.0

Start Odoo and create config file.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# su - odoo -c "/opt/odoo/odoo/odoo-bin --addons-path=/opt/odoo/odoo/addons -s --stop-after-init" 2019-12-05 15:57:57,210 39135 INFO ? odoo: Odoo version 13.0 2019-12-05 15:57:57,210 39135 INFO ? odoo: Using configuration file at /opt/odoo/.odoorc 2019-12-05 15:57:57,210 39135 INFO ? odoo: addons paths: ['/opt/odoo/odoo/odoo/addons', '/opt/odoo/.local/share/Odoo/addons/13.0', '/opt/odoo/odoo/addons'] 2019-12-05 15:57:57,211 39135 INFO ? odoo: database: default@default:default 2019-12-05 15:57:57,799 39135 INFO ? odoo.addons.base.models.ir_actions_report: Will use the Wkhtmltopdf binary at /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf 2019-12-05 15:57:59,301 39135 INFO ? odoo.service.server: Initiating shutdown 2019-12-05 15:57:59,301 39135 INFO ? odoo.service.server: Hit CTRL-C again or send a second signal to force the shutdown.

Move config file to /etc/odoo directory.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# mv /opt/odoo/.odoorc /etc/odoo/odoo.conf

Set location of Odoo logfile in config file.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# sed -i "s,^\(logfile = \).*,\1"/var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log"," /etc/odoo/odoo.conf

Create symbolic link for Odoo executable.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# ln -s /opt/odoo/odoo/odoo-bin /usr/bin/odoo

A predefined systemd service is provided with Odoo source, therefore, we can use it to create Odoo service on CentOS 7.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# cp /opt/odoo/odoo/debian/odoo.service /usr/lib/systemd/system/

Enable and start Odoo service.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# systemctl enable --now odoo.service Created symlink from /etc/systemd/system/ to /usr/lib/systemd/system/odoo.service.

Configure CentOS 7 firewall to allow Odoo default port 8069/tcp. Optionally you can configure a Reverse Proxy using Varnish Cache to route users via default HTTP port 80/tcp.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=8069/tcp success [root@odoo-server-01 ~]# firewall-cmd --reload success

Verify Odoo version.

[root@odoo-server-01 ~]# odoo --version Running as user 'root' is a security risk. Odoo Server 13.0

Browse URL in a web browser.


Create a database for Odoo as per the above screenshot.


We are reached at the Odoo dashboard.

To perform various configurations on Odoo server the Odoo 12 Development Cookbook by Packt Publishing may be helpful for you, it provides more than 190 unique recipes to build effective enterprise and business applications.

We have successfully installed Odoo 13 server on CentOS 7.
