I have downloaded openemr-5.0.2.tar.gz in my Ubuntu 19.04 box
I have extracted the files in /opt/lampp/htdocs directory
http://localhost/openemr/setup.php?site=default displays a blank page

OpenEMR Version
I’m using OpenEMR version 5.0.2

I’m using: Firefox

Operating System
I’m using: Ubuntu 19.04

Did you check the logs? Was there anything pertinent in them? Paste them here (surround with three backticks (```) for readability

Hi Raj Kishore,

You can not use XAMPP to Ubuntu machine. You need to apache2 server for Ubuntu machine to install OpenEMR. Please refer below link to install OpenEMR on Ubuntu machine.

Let me know if you have any problem to install.

Hi Nilesh,

Thanks for your response. I just got rid of XAMPP. I installed LAMP stack, each components separately. Here is the configuration:
Apache Version Apache/2.4.38 (Ubuntu)
PHP Version 7.2.19-0ubuntu0.19.04.2
MySQL Version: 5.7.27-0ubuntu0.19.04.1 (Ubuntu)
openemr-5.0.2 GitHub - rajkis/openemr: OpenEMR is the most popular open source electronic health records and medical practice management solution. ONC certified with international usage, OpenEMR's goal is a superior alternative to its proprietary counterparts.

After all the efforts finally I am able to run openemr on my machine. Thanks.

hi @Nilesh_Hake ,
Do note the 5.0.2 ubuntu/debian package has not been released yet (still working out package bugs that cropped up in 18.04). So, need to install 5.0.2 on ubuntu like any other linux installation for now.
