How do I find Addons in Odoo Marketplace OCA

Linode Staff


I recently installed the Odoo image from the Marketplace, when I connect via SSH to the server, I cannot find the odoo addons folders. I need to add addons, how do I do it?

Thanks in advance!

I deployed my own Odoo OCA and I noticed that it's configured with Docker. I haven't used Docker or Odoo in a bit but I did a bit of research and I think I found the addons folder in my Odoo OCA. Here are the key steps I took..

See running containers:

root@172-104-18-137:~# docker ps -a
CONTAINER ID   IMAGE         COMMAND                  CREATED          STATUS          PORTS                                                      NAMES
a30f85c54195   odoo          "/ odoo"    12 minutes ago   Up 12 minutes>8069/tcp, :::8069->8069/tcp, 8071-8072/tcp   odoo
82f2055c22f4   postgres:13   "docker-entrypoint.s…"   12 minutes ago   Up 12 minutes   5432/tcp

Access Odoo-Docker container:

  • exec -it <container_id> /bin/bash
docker exec -it a30f85c54195 /bin/bash

See addons path:

odoo@a30f85c54195:/$ head /etc/odoo/odoo.conf 
addons_path = /mnt/extra-addons
data_dir = /var/lib/odoo
; admin_passwd = admin
; csv_internal_sep = ,
; db_maxconn = 64
; db_name = False
; db_template = template1
; dbfilter = .*
; debug_mode = False

Find the addons directory inside Odoo-Docker Linode OCA:

odoo@a30f85c54195:/$ find /mnt/ -type d -name "*addons*"

Access addons directory inside Odoo-Docker Linode OCA:

odoo@a30f85c54195:/$ cd /mnt/extra-addons

This post from the Odoo forum helped a bit:

I hope that helps!
