OpenMRS Standalone provides a simplified, all-inclusive installation option with both an embedded database and web server. You can have a local copy of OpenMRS running within minutes: simply download and expand the archive, and then run the extracted
openmrs-standalone.jar file. Your browser will open a new instance of the OpenMRS system. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "testAdmin123".
OpenMRS Standalone is a great way to evaluate and explore OpenMRS capabilities. It may also be useful for small-scale production environments. At this time we are still developing operational experience with the standalone in production environments.
Since the embedded database & server are production-quality and the OpenMRS code is the same as our enterprise release, we have high expectations for the standalone. Before you choose the standalone, be aware that we are still gaining experience with this version in production environments. If you have any questions or concerns, let us know through our mailing lists, Twitter (@openmrs), etc. We're listening!
You must have Java 6+ installed on your system to run OpenMRS. If you are running Linux, use Java 1.6u23 or newer due to a known bug, which results in errors like Cannot run program "chmod": java.io.IOException: error=12, Cannot allocate memory.
