Odoo is a suite of business management software tools including, for example, CRM, e-commerce, billing, accounting, manufacturing, warehouse, project management, and inventory management. Odoo 14 was release on October 3, 2020.
Ubuntu 22.04 is the latest long term version(LTS) released by Canonical Ltd. the company behind Ubuntu software and related projects.
In this tutorial we will setup Odoo 14 using a virtual environment to isolate our application and avoid conflict within the system level.
Let us start with the installation.
1 Updating the system
sudo apt update -y && apt upgrade -y
2 Installing the Dependencies
After updating the system we need to install all the necessary dependencies.
Since the default Python version of ubuntu 22.04 is 3.10 we need to make sure that the Python modules listed in the requirements.txt are compatible with Python 3.10. Let us modify the version of some of the modules in the requirements.txt.
Now open the requirement.txt file using your favorite text editor.
Modify your current requirements.txt with the highlighted modules.
Save and close the file and reload the systemd daemon to apply the changes.
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
Enable and start the systemd service.
sudo systemctl enable --now odoo14
Check the status.
systemctl status odoo14
That’s it you should be able to access your instance at http://ipaddress:8069.
