OpenEMR 3.1 Windows Installation

From OpenEMR Project Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

1. Install and configure MySQL, Apache (or another PHP-capable webserver), and PHP5 (PHP4 is also supported). Many windows users have had success with the XAMPP package, which includes MySQL, Apache, and PHP. XAMPP can be downloaded from: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html

2. Download OpenEMR from sourceforge:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/openemr/openemr-3.1.0.zip (MD5 sum: 0d5232455330c3d8ae9b81b6577f6f0f)

3. Extract the downloaded OpenEMR archive, change the name of the directory openemr-3.1.0 to just openemr, and then move this directory to your webserver root directory. Refer to your webserver documentation to obtain your webserver root directory. For example, if your using XAMPP 1.7.0, then the webserver root directory is in the \xampp\htdocs directory.

4. 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. Read and follow the instructions carefully. If there are errors on this screen, then follow instructions to fix. (screenshot below)
