Diagram showing the OpenREM system components¶
Apache with mod_wsgi is the recommended method of deploying OpenREM/Django. You can use other web servers, for example nginx. You can read more about Apache and mod_wsgi on the Django website and also about other methods on the subsequent pages on the same site.
Alternatively, a built-in web server is included that will suffice for testing purposes and getting started.
2: DICOM Store node¶
Any DICOM Store can be used, as long as it can be used to call the OpenREM import script. A built-in store is available, but not recommended for production use. See DICOM Network Configuration for more details. Conquest is the recommended DICOM Store service to use.
PostgreSQL is the recommended database to use with OpenREM. It is the only database that OpenREM will calculate median values for charts with. Other databases can be used with varying capabilities; see the Django documentation for more details. For testing only, the built-in SQLite3 database can be used, but this is not suitable for later migration to a production database.
