DHIS2: minmaxdataelement table not created

Hi Jeton,

interesting that you are setting this up in Kosovo.

I think what you have is two problems. Regarding the build problem you must first build dhis-2/ then dhis-2/dhis-web, see here for instructions:

Regarding the database problem I am not really sure. There might be some issues when upgrading from a legacy database in MySQL to a newer DHIS 2 version. In case you haven’t done too much with your database you can try changing to PostgreSQL which is more thoroughly tested in the community.

Forwarding to list so other can help.

regards Lars

Hi Lars,

This is Jeton Mehmeti emailing from Kosovo regarding an issue i’m

running into when starting tomcat server.

I have recently checked out the DHIS2 source code for the purpose and

intention of implementing DHIS2 in Kosovo. No agreement has been made

yet, but I’m in process of negotiation with them guys from Ministry of

Health and they are eager to see the software and learn what they can

benefit from it.

Anyways, can you please help me fix the problem I’m running into. That

is, when I run tomcat server minmaxdataelement table cannot be created.

Please see log below:
