This runs on top of tomcat:8-jre8-alpine.
OpenMRS depends on mysql:5.6 as database.
docker run --name openmrs-mysql -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=my-secret-pw -d mysql:5.6
Now run one
giorgioazzinnaro/openmrs-platform instance linking it to
openmrs-mysql (keep your MySQL password in mind for first configuration) and expose port 8080.
docker run --name openmrs-platform --link openmrs-mysql:mysql -it -p 8080:8080 giorgioazzinnaro/openmrs-platform:2.0.5
Point your browser to localhost:8080/openmrs, and select
Change your database connection string to look like this:
localhost was replaced with
Go on selecting the database to be created:
Do you currently have an OpenMRS database installed that you would like to connect to?:
$MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD (the password you selected for your MySQL container)
On the next page, again enter
$MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD so that the installer creates the new user.
Now change all other settings as desired.
After configuration the homepage should note that only the REST API can be used at this stage, if at this point you expected a fully functional EMR system, you should move over to giorgioazzinnaro/openmrs-reference-application, the default OpenMRS implementation.
Because this is just OpenMRS platform, modules should be added to provide functionality.
Modules are installed at
/root/.OpenMRS/modules, which is exposed as volume, so either that can be mounted, or files can be copied over to the container.
For ease of use, a
docker-compose.yml file is provided in the GitHub repo.
