Ruby >= 1.9.3
Bundler >= 1.5.0
MySQL (tested with MySQL 5.1)
PostgreSQL (tested with PostgreSQL 9.1)
SQLite3 (tested with SQLite 3.7)
SQLServer (tested with SQLServer 2012)
SCM binaries (e.g. svn, git…), for repository browsing (must be available in PATH)
ImageMagick (to enable Gantt export to png images)
Uncompress the program archive
Create an empty utf8 encoded database: “redmine” for example
Configure the database parameters in config/database.yml for the “production” environment (default database is MySQL and ruby1.9)
Install the required gems by running:
bundle install --without development test
If ImageMagick is not installed on your system, you should skip the installation of the rmagick gem using:
bundle install --without development test rmagick
Only the gems that are needed by the adapters you've specified in your database configuration file are actually installed (eg. if your config/database.yml uses the 'mysql2' adapter, then only the mysql2 gem will be installed). Don't forget to re-run `bundle install` when you change config/database.yml for using other database adapters.
If you need to load some gems that are not required by Redmine core (eg. fcgi), you can create a file named Gemfile.local at the root of your redmine directory. It will be loaded automatically when running `bundle install`.
Generate a session store secret
Redmine stores session data in cookies by default, which requires a secret to be generated. Under the application main directory run:
bundle exec rake generate_secret_token
Alternatively, you can store this secret in config/secrets.yml: guides.rubyonrails.org/upgrading_ruby_on_rails.html#config-secrets-yml
Create the database structure
Under the application main directory run:
bundle exec rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV="production"
It will create all the tables and an administrator account.
Setting up permissions (Windows users have to skip this section)
The user who runs Redmine must have write permission on the following subdirectories: files, log, tmp & public/plugin_assets.
Assuming you run Redmine with a user named “redmine”:
sudo chown -R redmine:redmine files log tmp public/plugin_assets sudo chmod -R 755 files log tmp public/plugin_assets
Test the installation by running the WEBrick web server
Under the main application directory run:
ruby bin/rails server -e production
Once WEBrick has started, point your browser to localhost:3000/ You should now see the application welcome page.
Use the default administrator account to log in: login: admin password: admin
Go to “Administration” to load the default configuration data (roles, trackers, statuses, workflow) and to adjust the application settings
SMTP server Configuration
Copy config/configuration.yml.example to config/configuration.yml and edit this file to adjust your SMTP settings. Do not forget to restart the application after any change to this file.
Please do not enter your SMTP settings in environment.rb.
