Description

This is the 3rd patch, and it includes the fixes from previous patches. There are 33 files that are changed. Please read through the list of modified files to ensure you haven't customized any of these, since this will copy over this.

(Warning: see Special Issues section below)
(Warning: if you have modified the interface/globals.php script to manually set the $webserver_root and $web_root variables, then you will need to set this again after step 1 but before step 2 of the patch instructions below)



Installation instructions

Windows

1. Extract the zipped file into the openemr web directory, and say yes to copying over files
2. Open web browser and go to http://your_server_name_or_ip/openemr/sql_patch.php

Special Issues

  1. The 3rd patch included a critical patch to fix the login authentication process. If you are locked out of OpenEMR with this patch (the only OS we know at this time that will lock out users is OpenSuse) there are instructions to fix your login at Fix Lock Out; those users that are locked out will see the following error "FATAL ERROR: crypt() function is not working correctly in OpenEMR" which is discussed in more detail at Fatal Crypt Error. Even if your users are not locked out with this patch, do recommend changing all passwords (not for security reasons, but to prevent lock out errors in the future).
