Yes indeed. Go into the /conf folder and open the file dhis.conf with an editor, e.g. WordPad or Notepad++

Then make sure the statements point to Postgres and to your particular backup database.

Then configure the file like the first section here:

You should see a black MS-DOS command window with lots of text. My guess is that there is something wrong with the connection file, probably one of the following

a) the database name

b) the postgres username

So your database is called dhis2?

And dhis.conf is in C:/PATH/Projects/DHIS2/1/dhis-live/conf ?

Then I think the problem may be that you have set the Environment variable DHIS2_HOME: C:\DHIS2, which is a different location.

Hi Francis,

It is still connecting to H2 instead of Postgres (database type: H2).

One possibility is that this is because your file has aquired an unwanted extension like .txt. It looks to you as if it is called dhis.conf, but in reality it is called dhis.conf.txt

You can also just delete the top rows in dhis.conf, those that relate to H2.

Hi Fran,
Have you managed to resolve this? I have not seen further email trail on it, from the log file, it seems the dhis2 home folder is not writable. What are the permissions on this folder i.e. /home/dhis/config ? you can use ls -lrt to list the permissions for the config directory

My database name is dhis2.

I should set my Environment variable DHIS_HOME: C:/PATH/Projects/DHIS2/1/dhis-live/conf

So your database is called dhis2?

And dhis.conf is in C:/PATH/Projects/DHIS2/1/dhis-live/conf ?

Then I think the problem may be that you have set the Environment variable DHIS2_HOME: C:\DHIS2, which is a different location.

You should see a black MS-DOS command window with lots of text. My guess is that there is something wrong with the connection file, probably one of the following

a) the database name

b) the postgres username

c) the password

Go into the /conf folder and open the file dhis.conf with an editor, e.g. WordPad or Notepad++

Then configure the file like the first section here:

https://docs.dhis2.org/2.27/en/implementer/html/install_dhis2_configuration_reference.html

In the following line, you can change the last word (dhis2) to the name of your particular Postgres database:

connection.url = jdbc:postgresql:dhis2

Dear Francis, please sign up for the user mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~dhis2-users

To run DHIS2 on your laptop, you dont need MS SQL, Tomcat or Xampp. You can just use DHIS2 Live, and connect to Postgres.

thanks for sharing ppt file. is this still works for DHIS2 2.32 and above ? what postgres version and extension we need if this still work

The main change is that you now need to include the PostGIS extension and make sure your database is PostGIS enabled.

I have removed the old version numbers (just get the latest Java, Postgres and DHIS2 .war file)

Installation on a Windows laptop.pptx (60.5 KB)

Thanks, this is very use full
