INSTALLATION OF DHIS2 ON UBUNTU SERVER - ABSOLUTE NOVICE

Hello,

My name is Chikwado Eneja and am soon to be responsible for the setup and maintenance of DHIS2 for the management of health data for a Nigerian government programme. I have limited Ubuntu skill (though am learning aggressively) at the moment. The documentation found on your website has been of immense help so far – until I got stuck.

I have been able to go through the process of setting up Ubuntu serve, installing Apache Tomcat and PostgreSQL with the guidance on your website. Where I got stuck, however, is how to modify the “hibernate.properties” file and connect to the PostgreSQL database.

Am humbly requesting guidance on how to get through this configuration. Am quite desperate, please.

Thanks and kind regards.

Dear Chikwado

It nice to learn that you are trying to setup server for DHIS2.

If you are following the manual properly first create a folder name ‘config’ in the /home/dhis folder, then use follow the command for crate hibernate.properties:

sudo nano /home/dhis/config/hibernate.properties

and follow the text in ‘Database configuration’ section. Please use your dhis postgres password you created in ‘hibernate.connection.password’ and save (^x,Y). Then use command:

sudo chmod 0600 /home/dhis/config/hibernate.properties

That will work.

Please let me know if you have any further issues.

Regards
