I just fresh installed Odoo 9.0 onto fresh installed Debian 8.3.

I am having a strange problem, which I don't know, how to solve, because I don't really understand it.

Odoo only works when I run sudo service odoo stop and then sudo /usr/bin/odoo.py

When the service is started, on it says 500 Internal Server Error.

Any ideas?


First check Apache or your webserver's error logs

On a side note, I recommend using Bitnami Odoo Stack, it handles Odoo's dependencies, bugs, relatively complex configuration and the unclear requirements.

  • There are no errors in Apache. – LinuxSecurityFreak Feb 18 '16 at 1:44
  • Check Apache access logs too, I think Odoo trying to access a file it has no permission to it, or the service not properly configured in /etc/rc.d SXX shell scripts – Marware Feb 18 '16 at 10:24

Read the Manual.Most Likely:

After installation you will need to create a postgres user: by default the only user is postgres, and Odoo forbids connecting as postgres.
