Installing on FreeBSD...


Just wondering if anyone has tried installing this on FreeBSD 7.0 RELEASE?

We have Tomcat5.5, Mysql 5.0.33, Sun JDK 1.5.0_13 running on a FreeBSD Machine and I can't seem to figure out how to get the database loaded.

If anyone has any experience or installation instructions, I would appreciate your help....

Hi Fred,

The mysql component of the OpenVPMS database load is similiar to that documented n the Windows installation instructions you can find here

Modified as follows:

* Open a command prompt. * Navigate to openvpms-release-1.1/db * Start the mysql command line client and enter the following commands

mysql -u root -p mysql> source createdb.sql; mysql> use openvpms; mysql> source db.sql; mysql> quit;

* Navigate to openvpms-release-1.1/bin * To load the database with data suitable for a site converting from an existing system next enter ./ base * To load the database with data suitable for a new site enter ./ setup

You will need to load the script from the source code repository to the openvpms-release-1.1/bin folder first. This script was not included in the 1.1 release unfortunately but you can find it here:

These scripts will be included in the 1.2 release.

If you need any more assistance please yell.
