I am using a MacBook air(macOS Mojave 10.14) and I am unable to use docker(Docker version 18.09.0, build 4d60db4) to install OpenMRS SDK

I have followed the instructions on the page “https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Installing+OpenMRS+on+Docker” I have a MySQL(5.6) instance running. As soon as I run the command “docker run -it --rm -p 80:8080 openmrs/openmrs-reference-application-distro” it gives the following error


  • DB_AUTO_UPDATE=false


  • DEBUG=false

  • cat

/usr/local/tomcat/startup.sh: line 8: DB_HOST: unbound variable
