Add new databases

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

 $ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.

Odoo include a built-in feature to add new databases from the “Manage databases” section.

In order to enable the Odoo scheduler for any database different from the default one (bitnami_odoo), add the new database in the Odoo configuration file as follows (administrator permissions are needed for editing the file):

NOTE: Depending on your installation type, the Odoo configuration file can be found in the following locations:

  • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages): /opt/bitnami/odoo/conf/odoo.conf

  • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations): /opt/bitnami/apps/odoo/conf/odoo-server.conf

db_name = bitnami_odoo, newdatabase

After doing so, please restart all services:

$ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart
