Create Mirth Environment in AWS (Amazon AMI)

Setup Java:

Check if the Java JDK is installed in the system. use the below command to confirm

java -version

if it returns java: command not found then you have to install java in the machine.

yum -y install java-1.8.0-openjdk

you will need a (sudo) in front to perform that action as a root user. sudo yum -y install java-1.8.0-openjdk. This will install the complete Java 1.8.0 package for you.

perform java -version again. this will give you the below resultjdk install success

Install Mirth connect:

Download Mirth connect by using the below command, the below link is for the version 3.6.0

sudo wget http://downloads.mirthcorp.com/connect/3.6.0.b2287/mirthconnect-3.6.0.b2287-unix.tar.gz

unzip the downloaded file by using the following command

sudo tar xvfz mirthconnect-3.6.0.b2287-unix.tar.gz

once you unzip you can see a new mirth connect folder available (with a space between Mirth and Connect). you will not use the tar.gz file anymore, you can delete it by using the below command

sudo rm -r mirthconnect-3.6.0.b2287-unix.tar.gz

It’s always better to move the spaced folder to space-less folder and keep it inside the opt directory. Perform the following command for it

sudo mv Mirth\ Connect/ /opt/mirthconnect

Mirth will need two ports one is 8080 and another is 8443, you need to enable these two ports in the security group of the AWS  console.

open_ports_for_mirth

Navigate to security groups and select launch-wizard-1 group name. The click on Inbound tab and click Edit button. Add the ports as shown in the picture below

adding_ports

Now we need to start the Mirth Service to run on the remote system. Navigate to opt/mirthconnect/ and type the below command

./mcservice start

Getting AWS remote mirth in local:

Type the IP address and the webstart port of the mirth connect in your browser URL
