Good day,

I am considering setting up a GNU Health demo server in Harare Zimbabwe (the server might be fire walled to Zimbabwean IP's only, bandwidth is still very expensive this side of the world, local bandwidth, that is connections that terminate at the Zimbabwe Internet Exchange is free from most ISP's)

Great Ronald !
I am comfortable with Debian and Ubuntu Linux distro's, planning to use Ubuntu 11.04 server. 

That would be just fine.
The demo server should  be reset every midnight. if possible people should be able to login using different credentials with different roles and permission and security levels (e.g login as a doctor will give more access as compared to the demo user, login as a physician should also give different access to login as doctor ...)

You would need to have a demo sql database, and reload it every night. You would need a three-liner at the crontab that would run at midnight. It will do :  

1) Drop the database
2) Create the db 
3) Reload it from the original demo db.

That demo db should have enough data, so you won't have to start from scratch anytime you reload.

Maybe it would be a good idea to leave it for a couple of days, so people that have been playing around with their own data won't lose it at midnight.

I will be very grateful if you may provide guidance on how I can go about setting the demo server (I have never done this kind of set up before). I have managed to get Medical 1.0.1 running on OpenERP 6.0.2 before.

Luis, you once mentioned something about making a database available for demo hosting, is the database available?

Yes. We have them at GNU Solidario, and Dominique has offered to host it in France.  I will send you the login info via the announcement mailing list.

I have not used Tryton, I will download it and try and get GNU health running on a local machine.

Great !  Please let me know if you run into any issues. I would wait for tomorrow, when we release 1.3.3. Major changes in the installation process and laboratory.

Regards and thanks,
Ronald Munjoma
