If i remove the 'Databases' button, how would I access the functionality?

Asked by Kevin Beckford

We would like to remove the databases button from the login screen of the web client. That is done via the configuration. When we do that though, how do we then access that functionality?

So if i change the provided setting, in the openerp-web.cfg file"

dbbutton.visible = False

then I have no way to access that functionality besides accessing my web client's configuration file, and restarting it? There is no other way?

There are some other tricky ways to doing the same.

1. Using GTK Client as Nhomar mentioned, You can create new database.

2. Go to command shell and do the following.

 createdb mydb --encoding=utf-8

./openerp-server.py -i base -d mydb

You can still access the Database admin interface on path `/database`. Just type `http://yourdomain.com/database` in your browser's addressbar.

Can you help with this problem?
