Install Bahmni on CentOS

For production purposes, CentOS 7.6 64bit is the recommended & tested platform for running Bahmni version 0.92 and above. CentOS 7.5 is fine as well.

The below mentioned process is based off installing RPMs. Depending on which Bahmni package you wish to install, you can choose to install the appropriate RPM. Each RPM now contains its embedded tomcat or web server, and becomes its own service, which can be started or stopped.

List of RPMs:

  • bahmni-emr (Bahmni Backend)
  • bahmni-web (Bahmni EMR UI)
  • bahmni-reports (Bahmni Reports)
  • bahmni-lab (OpenELIS)
  • bahmni-erp (OpenERP / Odoo package)
  • bahmni-event-log-service (separate web app to sync events created on Bahmni)
  • pacs-integration (webapp to send radiology orders to PACS/Modality)
  • dcm4chee (open-source PACS)

Windows Installation

If you want to install Bahmni for Development on your laptop (Windows, Mac or Linux), then you can choose to instead install the Bahmni Virtual Box.

Installation

You can also watch the installation steps on this youtube video: Install Bahmni - Step by Step

Step 1: Fresh CentOS v7.6

Create a fresh CentOS v7.6. You can read the System Requirements here.

Deploy on the Cloud

If you don't have a CentOS box, or have a slow internet, you can perform these steps on a Cloud based CentOS, for instance on Digital Ocean. Please refer to this Wiki document on Deploying Bahmni on the Cloud.


Step 2: Perform the following steps to install the RPMs

Latest Release

The latest version of Bahmni is v0.93, released on 26-Oct-2021. Please refer to this document to read about the latest stable releases: ALL Bahmni Releases

Fresh Bahmni Installation


 Installing Bahmni version 0.93 (Recommended)

Steps for Installing Bahmni v0.93

This approach requires you to install the bahmni command line program first. Once "bahmni" command is installed, then you can choose your install settings, and related configurations to perform a specific Bahmni install. For now, we will install Bahmni with default configuration, and a demo database. For Advanced Installation steps, you can refer to this document later. All RPMs are hosted here.

#Prerequisite for the fresh installation of Bahmni
yum install -y https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/zlib/1.2.11/19.fc30/x86_64/zlib-1.2.11-19.fc30.x86_64.rpm
yum install -y epel-release

# Install the bahmni command line program (Choose the version you want) 
yum install -y https://repo.mybahmni.org/releases/bahmni-installer-0.93-197.noarch.rpm

# download the postgres repo rpm. This is because wget fails to verify the keys.
# If you prefer the default download by wget, then you have to install the ca-certificates module 
# and configure wget. Alternatively you can use curl like below. 
# for more info check: https://talk.openmrs.org/t/bahmni-0-92-install-on-centos-7-6-minimal-fails/25416/48

> curl https://download.postgresql.org/pub/repos/yum/reporpms/EL-7-x86_64/pgdg-redhat-repo-latest.noarch.rpm --output /opt/pgdg-redhat-repo-latest.noarch.rpm


# Confirm that the bahmni command is correctly installed (you should see a help message for the command)
bahmni --help
 
# Now setup a configuration file for bahmni command in /etc/bahmni-installer. 
# Note, before running the below command check whether the /etc/bahmni-installer/setup.yml already exists or not. 
curl -L https://tinyurl.com/yyoj98df >> /etc/bahmni-installer/setup.yml

# Edit the setup.yml file and add the Bahmni Repo URL

# The above setup.yml, has a timezone entry. You can change it to suit your timezone if you like. For valid options
# please read this document: https://bahmni.atlassian.net/wiki/display/BAH/List+Of+Configurable+Installation+Variables

# Optionally set the inventory file name to local in BAHMNI_INVENTORY environment variable. This way you won't need to use the '-i local' switch every time you use the 'bahmni' command. 
# You can also configure custom inventory file instead of local.
echo "export BAHMNI_INVENTORY=local" >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc

# configure components you require. Edit the inventory file (or your custom inventory file)
> vi /etc/bahmni-installer/local

 
# Now fire the installer. If you have exported the variable as above you can ignore the "-i local" option.  
bahmni -i local install 

 
# The installation should be done in about 15 - 30 minutes depending on your internet speed. 
# Verify installed components using the command:
yum list installed | grep bahmni

Security Alert

There's been a security advisory from OpenMRS for webservices.rest module. As part of security Advisory, who ever planning to install Bahmni or already have installed Bahmni of versions 0.89, v0.90, v0.91 those have to replace existing webservices.rest module with 2.24.0 version module. 

 Steps to replace webservices.rest module


#Go to openmrs modules path on Bahmni server
sudo cd /opt/openmrs/modules

# Stop openmrs service
sudo service openmrs stop

# Take a backup of existing webservice.rest module (Eg for Bahmni v0.91)
sudo mv webservices.rest-2.20.0.omod webservices.rest-2.20.0.omod.backup
 
# Download webservices.rest-2.24.0.omod using below command 
sudo wget https://repo.mybahmni.org/packages/libraries/webservices.rest-2.24.0.omod

# Give ownership to bahmni user
sudo chown bahmni:bahmni webservices.rest-2.24.0.omod
 
# Start Openmrs service 
sudo service openmrs start

Installing dcm4chee & pacs-integration server for Radiology

 Click here to expand for Dcm4chee and PACS...

Bahmni supports Radiology features that will allow you to view X-Rays and other DICOM images within Bahmni, including the ability to place such orders and make them automatically reach the machine (modality). For making this work, one needs to install dcm4chee (an open source PACS/DICOM server) and bahmni pacs-integration service (that acts as a bridge between Bahmni & dcm4chee). To install these two components perform the following steps:

  1. Bahmni uses Ansible under-the-hood to install components on the Linux server. To enable installation of these two components, edit the local (default) inventory file and add localhost under the following sections (run command as root since this file is owned by root): 

    > vi /etc/bahmni-installer/local
    
    # Add "localhost" under the following sections like this: 
    [pacs-integration]
    localhost
    
    [pacs-integration-db]
    localhost
    
    [dcm4chee]
    localhost
    
    [dcm4chee-db]
    localhost
    
    
    
  2.  Now re-run the bahmni install command: "bahmni install" from command line. This will re-trigger bahmni installation, and Ansible will re-check all configurations, ignore most of them (since they are already installed) and will ONLY install the relevant rpms needed for pacs-integration and dcm4chee (including postgres database). 
  3. After the installer has finished running, you should be able to open and see dcm4chee running on url: https://192.168.33.10/dcm4chee-web3/  (Creds: admin/admin).
  4. Once you have done the above 3 steps and all looks good, you need to perform some additional steps (like configuring Database and setting up an actual machine (or modality) or a Test modality). For that please read this documentation: Radiology and PACS Integration
