Setting ssl proxy for OpenERP-web

Https for the client-web, encrypts communication between your webbrowser and client-web server  which is connected to openerp-server.To enable https for the you can  use web-server and use  its proxy functions.

           1. Enabling apache proxy module can be done by

                              sudo a2enmod proxy ssl proxy_http

            2. Https for the client-web can be made to run on any other port than default ssl, we have to  include the port  to be used in /etc/apache2/ports.conf inside the <IfModule mod_ssl.c> container  as

                               NameVirtualHost *:33225

                               Listen 33225 (for example)

            3. Proxy Settings-   mywebname-ssl 

                         Create a new file using and add the following lines,

                                       sudo vim /etc/apache2/sites-available/mywebname-ssl

                <VirtualHost *:33225> 
                         ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
                         ServerName <yourwebsitename>
                         ServerAlias www.<yourwebsitename>.com   

                         SSLEngine on
                         SSLCertificateFile /etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem
                         SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key

                        <Proxy *>
                               Order deny,allow
                               Allow from all
                         ProxyRequests Off
                         ProxyPass /          (OpenERP web running port)
                         ProxyPassReverse /    

                         # Fix IE problem (http error 408/409)
                         SetEnv proxy-nokeepalive 1
                 </VirtualHost >

           4. Enabling the site can be done by

                          sudo a2ensite mywebname-ssl

            5. Typing at the browser   https://yourwebsite:33225 will redirect you to the required web page if there are some issues you can comment the line or make the value 'False' in openerp-web.cfg

                                        tools.csrf.on = True

          If you are using the default-ssl then need to edit the lines  in

                         <VirtualHost *:443>

                          ProxyRequests Off
                          ProxyPass /
                          ProxyPassReverse /

                        </VirtualHost >

Hi Fahad: Thanks for your

Hi Fahad:

Thanks for your precious tips and help, as a matter of fact I have been able to get the OPENERP 6.1 online, with some errors but at least I am able to use Openerp online.

I am using the version 6.1 , I have been trying for a while to set up the the automated email function for send an RFQ as soon as I finished, instead to make it in PDF.

But so far all tips I have been able to catch in the internet , they do not match with nothing I have in my Openerp..

Do wo have any idea where can I achive the function to send emails directly instead to print them in PDF..
