Have you implemented OpenMRS? Please participate in the Implementation Site Survey. If you already have, thank you!
These are the steps to follow for making the OpenMRS launch automatically. We want our server to start automatically, so it starts after booting the pc and when is network available.
Sript for launching the openmrs server:
#!/bin/bash cd /home/pere/Documents/referenceapplication-standalone-2.7.0/
java -jar openmrs-standalone.jar -commandline -tomcatport 8081
Number of port used by tomcat is arbitrary
We have to save it in:
Now, create a file called:
It has to contain:
Description=Launch OpenMRS server service
User= field contains the user’s session name and
ExecStart = the path to run the script.
Now, start the service:
$ sudo systemctl start OpenMRS
And start on boot:
$ sudo systemctl enable OpenMRS
For checking the status of the service:
$ systemctl status OpenMRS.service
