How to install Odoo 11 community edition on a Debian 9 server with DigitalOcean

This guide will help you install Odoo 11 community edition on a Debian 9 server with DigitalOcean.

This guide will assume you have already created a droplet on your DigitalOcean account and will not go through that process with you. If you need help spinning up your server to install Odoo on it. Then follow this guide.

Login to your server through SSH as root.

Let’s update our fresh server, so it has the latest packages ready to be used.

sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt update

Now let’s install the PostgreSQL server.

sudo apt-get install postgresql -y

Now let’s install wkhtmltopdf which is a prerequisite to enable creating headers and footers in PDF files. Enter in the following command line, and enter ‘Y’ when asked.

sudo apt-get install wkhtmltopdf

Now lets add the repositories and install Odoo.

# wget -O - https://nightly.odoo.com/odoo.key | apt-key add -
# echo "deb http://nightly.odoo.com/11.0/nightly/deb/ ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/odoo.list
# apt-get update && apt-get install odoo

Now visit your servers IP address with the port 8069. Enter the following URL in your browser.

Have fun using Odoo.

To apply a bulk edit to all your search results, clicked on the ‘Primary Category’ column heading and click ‘Edit All Checked Products’.

Then select what primary category you want to apply to all of them within the next window. Then click apply. Then click ‘save changes’
