OpenEMR 3.0 Ubuntu-Debian Package Installation

From OpenEMR Project Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This package is basically a one-click installation/configuration package for Ubuntu and Debian OS that also configures Apache and PHP. It is extremely simple to install, and we plan to support automated OpenEMR upgrading in the future. It has been tested in the desktop and server versions of Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10, and Debian 4 and 5.

In Ubuntu, installation can either be done in desktop or command line. In Debian, we recommend installing via command line.
