How to install Odoo 13 in less than 13 minutes?

Do it yourself

In this blog post I am going to show you how to install Odoo 13(or whatever version you need) in less than 10 minutes. As you will see it is more about showing the importance of reading the documentation than the actual tutorial.

Odoo • Image and Text

What is needed?

- Amazon AWS account (https://aws.amazon.com/)

- Browser

- around 10 minutes

You can use any different provider than AWS as long as it offers Ubuntu Linux

Setup the server

On Amazon you can do it with couple clicks starting from "Launch Instance" in EC2 dashboard.

During the process remember to have sufficient amount of RAM and processors. However, the lowest tier server (t2.micro) should be fine for just playing with Odoo.

Also, remember to open the ports 80 & 8069 () and to assign the elastic IP.

The process is very easy but if you need more detailed help you can watch our free video tutorial on that (link at the end of article.)

Connect to Server and install Odoo

You can connect to the server using your browser or SSH client (such as Putty).

In order to install the Odoo copy and paste the following:

1) Install Postgresql

apt-get install postgresql -y

2) Download and install Odoo

# wget -O - https://nightly.odoo.com/odoo.key | apt-key add -
# echo "deb http://nightly.odoo.com/13.0/nightly/deb/ ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/odoo.list
# apt-get update && apt-get install odoo

Run and configure Odoo

Access your Odoo instance (by default on port 8069) and create new database or restore the old one.

Remember to setup the master password.

Good to know

This wouldn't be a production server - you should also create a folder for the custom modules, hide access to database manager, tweak the configuration file, setup nginx/Apache, automated backups etc.

Is it hard to do? Probably not, but may take some time. For more feel free to visit official Odoo Documenation https://www.odoo.com/documentation/13.0/setup/install.html#prepare
