Odoo is an enterprise class level ERP suite, in fact it can replace so many applications on a row. You can find such lists here -> Replace all your business apps with Odoo 9
Now, to install Odoo Server in your Dev Server, a lil bit edgy, need some touch of a human hand. Lets see how to do that. As per the Odoo documentation, which have installation instructions for windows, Linux(deb/rpm) etc. Lets go for Debian/Ubuntu choice.
We are going to install Odoo using apt-get, the awesome package manager of Debian world. First we have to add the Odoo repo to our apt-source list and GPG key. For that, fire the below command line / terminal
wget -O – https://nightly.odoo.com/odoo.key | apt-key add –
Then fire the next command to add repo list
Mind the version name and update repo package info and install odoo
echo ‘ “deb https://nightly.odoo.com/9.0/nightly/deb/ ./” >> /etc/apt/sources.list ‘
NOTE :- To print PDF reports, you must install wkhtmltopdf yourself: the version of wkhtmltopdf available in debian repositories does not support headers and footers so it can not be installed automatically. The recommended version is 0.12.1 and is available on the wkhtmltopdf download page, in the archive section. As there is no official release for Debian Jessie, you can find ours on http://nightly.odoo.com/extra/.
apt-get update && apt-get install odoo
This will install odoo server in dev machine. Lets assume this step pass with no fail. Now open your web browser and go to http://localhost/8069
Note that 8069 is the default port for Odoo Server. You will get a prompt for setting up Admin password and Database name. Just fill up those and install button, then it will take to administrator backend.
Voila, your Odoo Server is ready ! You can explore and try more things as you wish, you can get help from Odoo website itself for more info
