How to Setup Redmine Project Tracking System

Installation Procedure

1) Make sure Ruby 1.8.7 and Rubygem are installed

2) Install Rails and few required gems

gem install rails -v=2.3.5
gem install rack -v=1.0.1
gem install -v=0.4.2 i18n

3) Checkout the Redmine source code

svn co redmine-1.0

4) Go to redmine-1.0/config and rename few files

mv database.yml.example database.yml
mv email.yml.example email.yml

and do the database and email configuration

5) Run rake db:create to create database. then run database migrations using rake db:migrate

It will create tables and an administrator account.

If you get this error:

Rake aborted!
no such file to load – net/https

you need to install libopenssl-ruby1.8, in ubuntu, just like this: apt-get install libopenssl-ruby1.8

6) Generate a session store secret.

rake generate_session_store

7) Insert default configuration data in database, by running the following command:

rake redmine:load_default_data

This step is optional but highly recommended, as you can define your own configuration from scratch. It will load default roles, trackers, statuses, workflows and enumerations.

8 ) Setup is complete. Start the server

ruby script/server

9) Use default administrator account to log in:

login: admin
password: admin
