drop your current openmrs database and repeat the steps of installation again

Hope you following this link Here. If you are running openmrs-sdk -server, Go to the directory ,C:\Users\YourName\openmrs\servers, can you share your server directory. . if at all you are trying to run openmrs-sdk -server

The first time when i ran the Simple installation then only 2 tasks were completed : Created database openmrs Created user openmrs_user

So i uninstalled and installed the mysql again when I ran the Simple installation the second time then I connected with database from the database tab in Mysql So I was connected with Mysql@ With this my 4-5 tasks were completed properly as mentioned in the above image. But I was getting the unable to adjust RuntimePropertiesFile to disallow world to read it issue.

I would again try to dump and try to start again as you suggested

I am also facing this issue.


I basically have java installed version: 1.8.0_121

I am using intellij idea to build and run the project openmrs-core which I forked into my account on git.

My maven goal command is mvn clean install -DskipTests.

Executing the above goal resulted in a successful build.

Then I created a build config where I run the jetty:run command inside the webapp directory.

Once I run that command, I am able to access openmrs install page using the url http://localhost:8080/openmrs/initialsetup.

I am able to select the simple installation and and then I am able to enter the database password, then I see that the database has been created with tables in them, but at one point it fails with the error message in red above.

Then it continues to add more tables then it fails with

Unable to adjust RuntimePropertiesFile to disallow world to read it

I am able to see the tables created in MySQL tables created

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you
