What desktop needed to Run OpenEMR

(Liqin Wu) #1

I installed Openemr on my personal computer (NOT server machine) successfully. But is tooooo slow to work.

  1. Do I need a server machine to run openemr locally?
  2. I will try AWS and do I still need a server machine, or any laptop or desk will work?
    … sorry, I am new user.

OpenEMR Version
I’m using OpenEMR version 5.0.1

I’m using: chrome

Operating System
I’m using: 64-bit OS windows 8.1 ---- low end computer

thanks a lot

System 76 offers the Merekat which is a pretty powerful device for a little more than $500. What is the size of your patient database?

Thank you @growlingflea.
I don’t have much large patient database as a specialty.
Is Meerkat a server machine?
Do I need to buy it to run OpenEMR locally or for AWS or Google cloud?
thx a lot.

hi @dulles2018, did you download and install the XAMPP package, http://downloads.sourceforge.net/openemr/xampp-openemr- ?

(Liqin Wu) #6

yes I did but cannot run as possible on a wrong machine.-- very slow.

The Merekat would be a local machine.

a small local install of OpenEMR should run fine on just about any pc made in the last 10 years3664956027_bd2d79a393_z from Chris Limb, https://www.flickr.com/photos/catmachine/3664956027/in/photostream, license /https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/legalcode,

@stephenwaite, thanks a lot.
I will try one more time to install in another local machine - a new HP laptop with i5 2.7Ghz processor, 4GB RAM, 64-bit OS.
Can I run XAMPP in another machine?

@stephenwaite, etc
Hi Stephen and all.
Thank you all for the help. Finally I got the openemr running fast enough in my laptop.
One thing is strange:

When I click Calendar, it won’t show up until I click its refresh button. But if I click Calendar refresh at the first time, calendar will show in one second.

What is the problem?

(Liqin Wu) #12

No this problem in Chrome, but only in IE.

Can anyone help for insert CAMOS?
When I click install DB second time(I should wait for the first click to finish), it gave me this message
