About the Server Administration - Administration-du-Serveur category

This category is dedicated to discussion and exchange of information related to all issues of DHIS2 server administration.

  • The kind of people who might be interested in this category are those who are directly involved in DHIS2 server implementation and maintenance.

  • Examples of topics which are not relevant here are “How do I configure OrgUnitGroupSets?” or “Why is sharing not working with my DataElements”

  • Relevant topics might relate to “the choice of operating system”, “whether to use containers or virtual machines”, “what is a good centralised logging solution”, “how much shared memory should I allocate for postgresql” etc

  • We want to use this category to develop an on-going community of practice in this quite specialised area of DHIS2 implementation. Please be cordial, helpful and encouraging to others.

A post was split to a new topic: Error while setting up DHIS2 2.32.0 on Ubuntu Server

Thank you for this @jomutsani

I am one of the maintainers of the Guinea conakry national DHIS 2 server(set of virtual machines) and it arrived to have some challenges some time. I am looking forward to come with questions specially about best choices when virtualizing/containers.
