How do you update from 5.0 to 5.0.1? I use open emr through Virtual Box.

should stress to make a backup before any upgrade or patches :slight_smile:

Should stress making daily backups.

Thank you! I have looked at the link you providwd before but am unable to do steps 1-3 because I cant find the files on my computer. I downloaded the patch. I search openemr in my files and am unable to find anything. I downloaded open emr 8 months ago and dont recall where the program files are. I used a youtube video to actually install and get it up and running.

can you get to a command prompt on your virtual box?


(Brian Molini) #6

Yes, I have not used the commands much only during install.


(Stephen Waite) #7

if this is linux look under something like /var/www/html/openemr

I guess I am running 5.0.1 already so I dont need to upgrade. Thanks!

nice, maybe you looked under the about tab? you’ll want to patch if you’re not 5.0.1.6
