Overview

This is pertinent for all users who have OpenEMR version 3.0.1 or 3.1.0 r 3.2.0 on Ubuntu/Debian, and is basically a automated upgrade process (I do recommend backing OpenEMR up via the first step to avoid data loss). Note, you do not need to have the package installed previously to do an upgrade; it will work without the package being previously installed if you are using OpenEMR version 3.0.1 or 3.1.0 or 3.2.0 and you previously installed openemr at directory /var/www/openemr . In both Ubuntu and Debian, recommend upgrading via command line.

Backup before upgrade:
In OpenEMR, go to administration menu and select Backup. Then click 'Continue' and save the backup file to your computer.


Command line Ubuntu Upgrade

Now need to secure the patient documents directory (it was moved in upgrade to version 4.0):

Modify the /etc/apache2/httpd.conf file with a text editor (note adding sites/default/ into the paths):
