Configuration file for Tryton

The configuration file controls some aspects of the behavior of Tryton. The file uses a simple ini-file format. It consists of sections, led by a [section] header and followed by name = value entries:

[database]
uri = postgresql://user:password@localhost/
path = /var/lib/trytond

For more information see ConfigParser.

Sections

This section describes the different main sections that may appear in a Tryton configuration file, the purpose of each section, its possible keys, and their possible values. Some modules could request the usage of other sections for which the guideline asks them to be named like their module.

listen

Defines the couple of host (or IP address) and port number separated by a colon to listen on.

Default localhost:8000

Defines the hostname.

root

Defines the root path served by GET requests.

Default: Under the www directory of user’s home running trytond.

PostgreSQL

pyscopg2 supports two type of connections:

  • Unix domain connection: postgresql://username:password@/
SQLite

The only possible URI is: sqlite://

MySQL

Same as for PostgreSQL.

path

table

This section allows to override the default generated table name for a ModelSQL. The main goal is to bypass limitation on the name length of the database backend. For example:
