v6 Windows webservice. Can't change port from 8080 to any other port.

Asked by Robert Montana

New to openERP. Client has windows server. v6 downloaded and installed. Everything working nicely but most important thing: can't change port 8080 for web-service; dies immediately on any other port.

We have other services on 8080; common port.

server.environment = "development"

first of all you must copy the doc/openerp-web.cfg in your openerp-client-web root directory, then change the port number and finally execute the web client:

./openerp-web.py -c openerp-web.cfg

Sorry for my answer, you are talking about windows and my answer was about linux environment.

Hi again,

the solution is editing "C:\Program Files\OpenERP 6.0\Web\doc\openerp-web.cfg". This is because the default configuration file is this instead of "conf\openerp-web.cfg" one. You have to do it manually because the shortcut of Windows Menu in "all programs > Openerp Web Client > Edit Web Config" edits "conf\openerp-web.cfg", that is why It didn't work for you.


Can you help with this problem?
