  1. After you have finished configuring OpenMRS, RELOAD the application in Tomcat Manager.
  2. Open http://localhost:8080/openmrs. You will see a login page. If you're using the OpenMRS standalone package, the page is at http://localhost:8080/openmrs-standalone .
    1. You will need to log in initially using the username and password you specified in Step 6 - Configuring OpenMRS, substep 4. If you did not specify a username and password, try the default username admin and password test (both are in lowercase).
    2. Alternatively, while Tomcat is running you can start OpenMRS by entering http://localhost:8080/openmrs/login.htm  (assuming 8080 is your port number for Tomcat; insert the appropriate port number if it is not 8080). For OpenMRS standalone package, you can start OpenMRS by entering http://localhost:8080/openmrs-standalone/login.htm .

    A runtime properties file is needed for OpenMRS to start up consistently.
    OpenMRS is unable to create this file : /home/tomcat6/.OpenMRS/
    Because of this error : No such file or directory

    You must correct this before continuing.

    What can i do for this error

      Not sure if you figure this out, but you need to allow write access the the /home/tomcat6 directory.
