Database has local changes

Error Message:

Database has local changes. Update.database will not be done.

When: Installing a template (e.g. QuickStart)

Issue: 11712

Description: There is a issue in 2.50MP9 that makes it randomly fail because the database XML files do no match with the real database data. The problem occurs when you import the database with a dump file in PostgreSQL. In this case the database functions are not ordered so there is a chance for the order not to match the one in the XML files.


Make the database data match with the data in the xml files:

1.- Uninstall the template in the web interface.

2.- Execute this in a terminal:

$ su
(enter root pass)
$ su -l openbravo -c "cd /opt/OpenbravoERP-2.50/openbravo-erp && ant update.database -Dforce=yes"

3.- Install again the template in the web interface.

Solution: This is a known issue of 2.50MP9, but the final stable package will have 2.50MP10, so this problem will not happen.
