From OpenEMR Project Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Overview

This is an already configured OpenEMR with XAMPP on Windows, and is extremely simple to install. The 4.2.2 version includes OpenEMR 4.2.2 and XAMPP version 5.6.20. The first set of instructions will configure mysql and apache as services (this is what we recommend). The second set of instructions will install XAMPP in a way so that the user is required to start/stop the apache and mysql servers manually (do not start automatically at start up). This XAMPP package is extremely unsecure after installation and you need to secure it with configuration of the Security Console.

Changes in Windows 10

If you have upgraded to Windows 10, are unable to login because you cannot restart Apache in xampp control and xampp control gives an error message that port 80 is being used by another application; that application, IIS, will need to be disabled. Follow this tutorial and clear the box next to "Internet Information Services" (IIS).

For a clean installation of Windows 10, it is not necessary to disable IIS.

If you wish to run OpenEMR offline, you will need to switch to Airplane mode.
