The installer mentioned in the Quickstart instructions only supports a limited number of distributions. In case your distributions is not supported, please refer to the following generic instructions to install on your system.
Step 0: create a specific user¶
It is usually advised, for security reason, to always launch a service accessible from the outside
world with a user different from
root. Therefore, you should create for example the
user, with the appropriate access rights to your music files.
Step 1: install prerequisites¶
First step of installation is to get all the package and pip dependencies. As a references, here are the packages for:
- DEB-based distributions: apt packages, pip packages
- RPM-based distributions: dnf packages, extra pip packages
Depending on what is available for your distribution, some dependencies might need to be installed
pip instead of your package manager. The complete list is given in the
You will also need a recent version of FFmpeg (>= 3.4).
Step 2: set-up PostgreSQL¶
Second step is to set-up PostgreSQL. Assuming you will run KooZic with the user named koozic, you need to create the corresponding PostgreSQL user:
su - postgres -c "createuser -s koozic"
Step 3: Download¶
Third step is to download the latest version of KooZic
(get the file
koozic-*.tar.gz), uncompress the archive.
Step 4: launch KooZic¶
Fourth step is to execute this as the
./odoo-bin --workers=4 -d koozic-v3 --limit-time-cpu=1800 --limit-time-real=3600 --without-demo=all --no-database-list
on Fedora, you need to add
--db-template=template0 to the command line. This might be necessary
for other distributions as well.
After 10-20 seconds (the very first execution takes some time since it needs to create all database-
related stuff), you should be able to connect to http://localhost:8069 with the email / password
