Openmrs is not able to start

hello community, @mozzy @dkayiwa @ruhanga @k.joseph
i am running standalone in order to reproduce a bug on https://issues.openmrs.org/browse/DRM-28 but am getting an error saying that openmrs is not able to start

, any ideas on how i can fix this?

@gclif, are running a standalone or using the sdk??

The reason i ask , is , you seem to have made a a change in the database configurartions in the openmrs properties file

in case your using the sdk , restart your database and also your openmrs instance and make sure the databse configurations in the openmrs properties file , match with the database configurations

@mozzy am running standalone

ok , have you made any local changes in the openmrs-runtime.propeties file??

no, but after deleting the other omod file ,things changes

ok , did you n anyway temper with the database folder??

that does not seem to have any problem

mysql was down and i reactivated it

but a standalone does not use the mysql on your computer …it comes with its own packaged database

take a snapshot of your local installation folder, and i see what exactly your running…you seem not to be running a standalone app?

oh okay, thanks for the clarification :+1:

does your local installtion folder look like this ??

yes like that

now an easier option , can you try to extract a fresh standalone from the zip?? and try to run it

okay let me do that

@gcliff, did you atlast solve the error??

yes i did, thank you

kindly put the solution for this error here
