Regardless of whether you have installed the server version of the desktop Live version, you will use a web-browser to log on to the application. DHIS2 should be compatible with most modern web-browsers, although you will need to ensure that Java Script is enabled.
To log on to the application just enter http://localhost:8080/dhis if you are using the DHIS2 live package, or replace localhost with the name or IP address of the server where the server version is installed.
Once you have started DHIS2, either on-line or offline, the displayed screen will prompt you to enter your registered ‘user name’ and ‘password’. After entering the required information click on log-in button to log into the application. The default user name and password are 'admin' and 'district'. They should be changed immediately upon logging on the first time.
