Managing Odoo server databases
When working with Odoo, all the data in your instance is stored in a PostgreSQL database. All the standard database management tools you are used to are available, but Odoo also proposes a web interface for some common operations.
We are assuming that your work environment is set up and that you have an instance running.
How to do it...
The Odoo database management interface provides tools to create, duplicate, remove, back up, and restore a database. There is also a way to change the master password, which is used to protect access to the database management interface.
Accessing the database management interface
To access the database, perform the following steps:
- Go to the login screen of your instance (if you are authenticated, log out).
- Click on the Manage Databases link. This will navigate to
http://localhost:8069/web/database/manager(you can also point your browser directly to that URL):
