Magento Instances Crashes After Install

Asked by Todd Southwick on 2011-06-09

Here is the traceback. This is a clean install on new database with all new modules. (no trunk versions, just the new v6 versions fromn launchpad. I have re-installed several times. I have no idea the problem.

Ok for all those who need to fix this problem. Download the correct modules here:


and get the following modules fresh for v6 or you will be screwed don't dowload the zip files they are v5 or not updated.


download them here (no where else there is a lot of old code out there. Download them from launchpad only.

I had the same error when iam trying to install this connector, could you help me please

Todd Southwick (tsouthwi) said : #3

Did you download all fresh code from launchpad?

yacine boutayeb (y-boutayeb) said : #4

Thanks for you reply!

Yes all modules seem to be good, but iam not sure for the magentoerpconnect module because this link don't work


Todd Southwick (tsouthwi) said : #6

delete the old module and all the dependent modules in openerp. then reinstall all the modules on a fresh database and it should work.

yacine boutayeb (y-boutayeb) said : #7

When i trying to install base_external_referentials modules, I've got this error:
Error occurred while validating the field(s) res_model,src_model: Invalid model name in the action definition.
Any idea ?

Thks a lot

Todd Southwick (tsouthwi) said : #8

If I remember this happens if there is data in the database. Did you install with sample data? I would dump your database, create a new clean one. Then only install the accounting module and then your dependant modules for openerp connector. Otherwise I am stumped with you. Best I can say is email me at tsouthwiAThotmailDOTCOM and I will send you a set of files I know already works.

How do you Download from Launchpad and get the modules into Zip Format then onto the Server?

I have BZR's onto my server but the Server does not recongize the modules. Only way I can get modules to load is from

Would like to be using BZR as it seems lots of fixes are here and not elsewhere. That said, perhaps is up to date.
