Manually install plugins on Odoo

If you can’t find the plugin you want to install in the Odoo plugin catalog, you can upload and install a module from the command line. To do so, follow these instructions:

  • Navigate to the Odoo plugin catalog and select the version of the application you have installed (in this case, v10.0):

    Odoo Apps catalog

  • Select the plugin you want to install and download it (make sure that you are downloading a plugin compatible with the current version of Odoo).

    Download an Odoo plugin

  • Connect to the Odoo server through SSH. Refer to the FAQ for more information on this.

  • Once you have accessed the server, change to the following directory (note that xyz are placeholders of the current Odoo version):

    $ cd /apps/odoo/lib/odoo-10.0.xyz.egg/odoo
    
  • Change the permissions of the addons directory so you can move folders and files into it. Execute the following to get the right permissions:

    $ sudo chmod 777 addons/
    
  • Upload the unzipped directories and files. Follow these instructions to upload files to the server with SFTP.

  • Once you have uploaded the module into the /apps/odoo/lib/odoo-10.0.xyz.egg/odoo/addons directory, you need to make sure that you can manage the uploaded files as the daemon user. Execute the following command:

    $ sudo chown -R daemon:daemon addons/MODULE-FOLDER-NAME
    
  • Restore the permissions to the /apps/odoo/lib/odoo-10.0.xyz.egg/odoo/addons directory:

    $ sudo chmod 755 addons/
    
  • Log in to the Odoo administration panel and in the top menu bar, click “Settings”:

    Navigate to the Settings section

  • In the right corner, you will find a description of Odoo. Under that information, you will see both the “Activate developer mode” and the “Activate developer mode (with assets)”. Click on any of these links (the “Activate the developer mode (with assets)”) is recommended:

    NOTE: When you have the developer mode activated, you can see a bug icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
