Sarin RajApril 17, 2019

When Odoo server is down we have to manually restart the Odoo service. Instead of this autostart Odoo server, when down by using Monit service. It is a helpful program that automatically monitors and manages server programs. Additionally monit comes with a basic web interface through which all of the processes can be set up. Few easy steps to create a script that will automatically start your odoo server when Ubuntu reboots.

Install Monit
Install monit package in our odoo server by terminal

sudo apt-get install monit

After the installation completed, adding the Odoo service program to monitor into the /etc/monit.conf under RedhHat/CentOS/Fedora and /etc/monit/monitrc file for Ubuntu/Debian/Linux Mint at the services section.

sudo vim /etc/monit/monitrc
check process odoo-server with pidfile /var/run/
start program "/etc/init.d/odoo-server start"
stop program "/etc/init.d/odoo-server stop"

And change The control file '/etc/monit/monitrc' permission to 0700. Once configured Odoo service program for monitoring, check if there is any error in monit syntax by the following command,
