View Full Version : F7: TinyERP is not connecting to the server

29th June 2007, 10:46 AM

I've installed tinyerp and tinyerp-server and all their dependencies (thanks to yum!)

I've been looking for hours at this forum: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=143678&highlight=tinyerp

and the help pages at: http://tinyerp.org/wiki/index.php/InstallationManual/SetupAPostgresqlUserAndDatabase

and still... haven't been able to connect to my own localhost server.

I've tried:

shutting down iptables
shutting down selinux
connecting from command line
messing with /etc/tinyerp-server.conf
hitting my PC

Nothing seems to work

I promise to put a howto at http://fedorasolved.org/ and on this forum's HOWTO section if anybody helps here!

Hi REnich,

if you type 'TinyERP' in the search area, you only got around 5 result, and the second one is the solution I used. see above link.

After long hours , I found this and now it works very well.

More information on package tinyerp-3.3.0-3mdv2007.0.noarch
Installation Steps

1. Check that all the required dependencies are installed.

2. Create a postgresql database.

The default database name is "terp". If you want to use another name, you
will need to provide it when launching the server (by using the commandline
option --database).

To create a postgresql database named "terp" using the following command:
$ createdb --encoding=UNICODE terp

If it is the first time you use postgresql you might need to create a new user
to the postgres system using the following commands (where myusername is your
unix user name):

$ su -
# su - postgres
$ createuser tinyerp
Shall the new user be allowed to create databases? (y/n) y
Shall the new user be allowed to create more new users? (y/n) y
$ logout
# logout

3. Launch service daemon by "service tinyerp-server start".

The first time it is run, the server will initialise the database with all the default values.

4. Connect to the server using the GUI client.

There are two accounts by default:
* login: admin, password:admin
* login: demo, password:demo

This little instruction sheet didn't come from the Yum GUI install, instead after installing it through a console. I don't know about others, but I usually don't pay too much attention to the scripts that scroll down a console when installing several programs at once or while I'm installing a clean install of the whole system. A lessoned learned. I hope others find this useful.
but it was not the same as before, we I want to createuser tinyerp, the first question he asked me is" wheather I want it be super user, I chosed no.

then it is the same as above.

and when i create the db terp, I tried to connect from the login place, but then it said something, anyway, I cannot. then , I created another db with other name, then I connected that db from the login place. you can try.

by the way, do you know how to use it?

I installed, but I don't know how to use it?

We are a small factory making sanitaryware parts, mainly copper parts.

Well, not yet, but there's this great book where it tells you how to get it organized... it's actually considered developing. I know of some courses they give. Here are some links:

I'm, actually, interested in starting to develop on this one...

# Manuals

# Alternative

Why there's no downloadable manuals?

I need to reference the manual offline, wiki, kind of no good for me...

Well, there is a manual. It's called TinyBook... couldn't find it online... maybe you can ask them what happened to the tinybooken.pdf ??? I have a copy but I don't know if I could post it or if it's still relevant.
