Looks like referenceapplication is NOT started, there could be other dependencies/modules that need to be installed and started first before referenceapplication could start successfully. Check from the modules page if all modules have started

Thank you for the response. I believe all the modules started successfully because the implementation was successful, the errors shows up after the user logs into the index page of the installation.

@akinnaija did you deploy on your previous Database instance ?Like @ningosi said ,check and see if all modules started succesfully.It’s possible for the implementation to start without some modules , or their dependencies.

I encourage you to stop it, clear the logs folder ,restart server and see what happens

Just like @ningosi said, this means that some modules are not started. Go to the manage modules page which looks like this one https://demo.openmrs.org/openmrs/admin/modules/module.list and then click the “Start All” button to start all modules. If they still fail to start, then you will need to share the tomcat logs at pastebin.com

@dkayiwa Im facing the exact same issue. The modules I have on my local are the same ones that are on demo.openmrs.org, Im using tomcat 8.5. Here’s the stack trace. https://pastebin.com/8BSQFZDp and below it what appears on the page:

When I restart my instance, I’ve notice that it’s indeed the reference application module that is not started as shown: So after clicking on the Start All button on the old ui, then then the ref app module starts.

Is it only the ref app module which starts? Or even the others?

All the 3 (Reference Metada Module, Reference Application Module and Reference Demo Data Module) start after selecting start all. Also I’ve noticed this is happening on each restart. One other thing, I dint select install demo data when installing OpenMRS incase that may be the issue.

Yeah looks like this happens when you dont select add demo data. I’ve tested adding demo data and this worked ok. Since I see core we have liquibase-core-data.xml and liquibase-demo-data.xml separated, could we add an option on the installation UI to add OpenMRS core data and demo data separately?

Demo data is optional. So you can always choose to leave it out.
