Is It Possible to Work on Different Odoo Databases With the Same App on Odoo OpenERP?
As Odoo is a pretty popular platform, which has a lot of advantages and privileges for usage, we have interviewed our senior Odoo developer Anar and asked him “Is it possible to work on different Odoo databases with the same app on Odoo OpenERP?”. His answer is below.
Yes, you can create as many databases as you need. But if your company is holding, then better way is to use multi company configuration. Odoo OpenERP have it’s own database manager where you can create, restore, backup databases. But in reality each company uses it’s own set of modules. And small changes in logic makes databases incompatible. So, the best practice is to have one separate Odoo instance for each database. But if you are a server provider and your clients use same modules set, and difference can be handled by configuration, then Odoo databases of all your clients could be located at single Odoo instance.
