First time starting OpenMRS


I recently discovered OpenMRS and want to start using it. I downloaded the standalone version, unzipped the folder, and started the .jar file according to the guide but nothing is happening.

I am running Windows 11 Home, Java 8 installed. It is just not doing anything, I tried double-clicking the file and through the CMD with no luck.

Assistance is much appreciated, thank you in advance

Can you share the log file? It is in the tomcat logs folder under your unzipped folder.

Thanks for your reply. I have 2 folders; conf & webapps

Where should I look? what type of file am I looking for? I still have needsconfig txt file, stating the standalone has not been run for the first time yet.

What is my next step?
