  • Mirth 1.5 on OSX

    One thing that I liked about the v1.4 of Mirth was the inclusion of a .dmg for easy installation on OSX. I have downloaded the v1.5 files, but am unsure of how to launch this version on OSX.

    Are there plans for a similar package ? Or what are the instructions to launch / install the new version on OSX ?

    Thanks

    The dmg file is still being worked on for the 1.5 release. You can go ahead and download the OSX zipped version and launch Mirth manually with the Mirth.sh file.

      As a fellow OS X user, I feel your pain! The DMG will be available either for 1.5.1 or 1.6.

      To install with 1.5:

      Download & Unzip Mirth
      Goto terminal, navigate to the directory Mirth is installed (type cd then just drag the unzipped folder to the terminal)
      type: chmod +x Mirth.sh
      That will make the Mirth.sh executable
      Next, just type ./Mirth.sh

      Mirth will be started in the terminal and you can launch the administrator by going to http://localhost:8080 in a browser.

        Many thanks to brendan and chris. I will try this tonite.

        After playing with OSX it makes me love Apple / Mac even more. When I can have a MAMP + Mirth running in minutes it makes me wish I had woken up sooner from the M$ world ;-) Makes a great demo system for these technologies....

        Actually took me seconds to do and it seems to have worked. Many thanks again.

              a little progress:
              i forgot the space after "cd" now i get a permission denied after the last step...
              cd /mirth-1/ chmod +x Mirth.sh
              PowerBook-G4:/mirth-1 deepwater$ ./Mirth.sh
              -bash: ./Mirth.sh: Permission denied

              getting closer!

                chrisl: Many thanks for the instructions. Continues to work like a charm. Question: What is the best way to stop the program (being a bit of a newbie here)

                turnitaround: dumb question but are you logged in as an admin ? dunno if that makes a difference.

                  Dunno how bad it is to reply to myself, but I have determined that if you are really determined to have an .dmg install of Mirth 1.5 (which I can be accused of) then there is a way. Download and install v1.4. Make a copy of that install in Finder, and then just copy over the files in the package contents. Worked for me ;-)

                  The main files from the 1.5 install are all java-related files. Those pesky windows files (and yes, I am a reformed user ;-) ) are really not necessary and can be removed.

                  Hope that works for someone. Please do make a backup if you are as nervous as I am.

                    Ok, im giving up on mirth...
                    i have tried everything possible to get Mirth running, (every forum post for the past 6 months). I had it running with v.1.3.x but was unstable.
                    i run the installer (thank you for taking the time to make it available) but when i try to launch webstart from the browser it cannot find ex http://localip:8080/webstart or http://localip:8080 or https://localip:8080...
                    double clicking on any file located in the mirth folder produces nothing but errors in java...
                    everything else on the system runs perfect, java included and yes its the latest version for Mac.
                    Powermac Cube (test machine) running OSX 10.4.10 with 512MB RAM mirth 1.6.0.2714setup installed in application directory.

                    any insight is appreciated, note, ive uninstalled EVERYTHING and reinstalled including the webstart patch...

                      Have you tried:

                      http://localhost:8080

                      http://127.0.0.1:8080

                      Also - you might have something else listening on Port 8080 (does Mirth throw an error when starting up?) You can change the Mirth port it listens on for webstart by opening "mirth.properties" (in the conf folder) and changing http.port to a different number.

                      Don't give up! I'm primarily a Mac user and have tried to ensure our releases are as Mac-friendly as possible.
