Situation Unable to do the Upgrade
I could not find any upgrade instructions for Ubuntu?
So, I tried the Linux instructions, but they don’t work on Ubuntu.
When you get to step 6. running sql_upgrade.php file returns the error; “PHP version needs to be at least 7.3.0.” and after upgrading the PHP to version 7.3.24, and rebooting the server, the same error occurs.
After some poking around on the Wiki I find this on the OpenEMR Upgrade Guides Page:
Ubuntu/Debian/Mint OpenEMR package
No longer supported.
NOW WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO? (yeah, I’m upset)
You have got to give us some viable open source O/S option here, we are supporting over 3,600 patients with our system. Windows is not an option. Inherently insecure and cannot be made secure.
After 10 years of running OpenEMR on Ubuntu, without prior warning, you just drop support for Ubuntu? What is up with that.
I wonder how many more of us are now left hanging out to dry?
What alternatives do we have now?
