I am trying to install the standalone OpenMRS on my Ubuntu virtual box, and I have Java 14.0.2 installed. I have the zip file decompressed and have been able to run the .jar file. However, while OpenMRS is installing I get the following error:
The following error occurred at startup: Error occurred while trying to get the updates needed for the database. Unable to get a connection to the database. Please check your openmrs runtime properties file and make sure you have the correct connection.username and connection.password set.
I have seen others post about this same error but haven’t been able to correct it on my system. I have located the file with connection.username and connection.password, I just don’t know what I am supposed to change them to to correct the error (if that is the true source of the error). The other responses to this error discuss using your mySQL username and password, but I thought for the standalone version, you didn’t need to have mySQL installed (though I do have it installed). I appreciate any insight any of you may have!
