Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is business process management software that allows an organization to use a system of integrated applications to manage the business and automate back office functions. ERP software integrates all facets of an operation, including product planning, development, manufacturing processes, sales and marketing. ERP software typically consists of multiple enterprise software modules that are individually purchased, based on what best meets the specific needs and technical capabilities of the organization.
Most of the ERP systems cost much money but there is a solution from FOSS community for FOSS people, and that is OpenERP
OpenERP is a free business management application, for me has been a pleasant surprise to discover that this application is packaged for Fedora so its installation is very easy and even OpenERP can be managed as a service by systemd (systemctl).
Installing OpenERP Server in Fedora
1) Install OpenERP and Postgres
2) Start Postgres database
3) Start Services
4) Enable service autostart
5) Stop firewall
You really have to add an exception to the firewall but for now it’s easier and faster to temporarily stop the firewall, then it is not necessary.
6) Start with user postgres
7) Create user and database
Installing the OpenERP Client on Fedora
Install OpenERP client by just executing this in terminal
Thats all 🙂
if you are no longer worked OpenERP service and a client to access the system. You just have to start the OpenERP client and connect to localhost.
