Overview

This package does NOT work with Ubuntu 16.04(and later versions), Debian 9(and later version), Mint 18(and later versions). See the following new PHP7 compatible package for these operating systems:


This package will install/configure the most current development (unstable) version of OpenEMR. It is extremely easy to install and uninstall, and it will not interfere with the official Ubuntu/debian OpenEMR Production Version Package. Since this code is unstable, this should only be used for testing and evaluation purposes.

To give a common scenario where this package would be useful:
A user is currently using the official Debian OpenEMR Production Version package on their computer for their clinic. They note interesting changes that have happened to the developer code in the forums and would like to test/evaluate it on their local computer. This package would install/configure this most recent development code to allow the user to test/evaluate it. When the user is done testing/evaluating, it is then very simple to remove this package. Then in a couple more days/week they can repeat the package installation to again test/evaluate the most recent development version.

Note this package installs an "unstable" version of OpenEMR and is only meant for testing/evaluation. If you want the stable package for production purposes then go HERE.
