Installing OpenEMR

Extracting the Tarball

1. First, Download OpenEMR from sourceforge:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/openemr/openemr-3.1.0.tar.gz (MD5 sum: cd0131762e3e2cee4a7eb04689267467)

Start a Terminal Session and change directory (cd) the the Download folder.

2. Next, Extract the downloaded archive:

tar -pxvzf openemr-3.1.0.tar.gz


3. Move the extracted openemr-3.1.0 directory to your webserver root directory, and then go to this directory.

sudo mv openemr-3.1.0 /Library/WebServer/Documents/openemr
cd /Library/WebServer/Documents

Cleaning up FileSystem Permissions

1. Modify file permissions (this should be done as root user):

sudo chmod 666 openemr/library/sqlconf.php
sudo chmod 666 openemr/interface/globals.php


2. Modify directory permissions. We need to make the following directories writable by the webserver username.

sudo chown -R _www:_www openemr/documents
sudo chown -R _www:_www openemr/edi
sudo chown -R _www:_www openemr/era
sudo chown -R _www:_www openemr/custom/letter_templates
sudo chown -R _www:_www openemr/library/freeb
sudo chown -R _www:_www openemr/gacl/admin/templates_c
sudo chown -R _www:_www openemr/interface/main/calendar/modules/PostCalendar/pntemplates/cache
sudo chown -R _www:_www openemr/interface/main/calendar/modules/PostCalendar/pntemplates/compiled

Configuring the Install through the WEB GUI

1. Open up web-browser and point it to the installation script at http://localhost/openemr/setup.php .

The first screen gives some general instructions and ensures file and directory permissions are set up correctly. It should tell you all your file system permissions are good, and have a 'Continue' button on the bottom of the form. If it does, Click the 'Continue' button. Otherwise, If there are errors on this screen, then follow instructions to fix. (screenshot below)
