Redmine

Redmine is a management suite that’s open source and is based on ruby. This will give you a cut/paste howto that will get you a running server on Debian Squeeze. There are many other ways to do this, this is just down and dirty. I don’t explain much of anything, it’s just cut/paste/hope 🙂

Redmine installation howto

Debian Jessie

apt-get install mysql-server postfix (select Internet site)
apt-get install redmine redmine-mysql
apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-passenger
cp /usr/share/doc/redmine/examples/apache2-passenger-host.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/redmine.conf
cp /usr/share/redmine/config/configuration.yml.example /etc/redmine/default/configuration.xml
vi /etc/redmine/default/configuration.yml
  default: <-- add next two lines right below this
    email_delivery: 
     delivery_method: :sendmail
  (comment out next lines)
  #  smtp_settings:
  #    address: smtp.example.net
  #    port: 25
  #    domain: example.net
  #    authentication: :login
  #    user_name: "redmine@example.net"
  #    password: "redmine"
a2enmod passenger
a2ensite redmine.conf
service apache2 restart

Now give your site a few seconds to load, and then visit your site at http://whatever.hostname.or.ip

Debian Wheezy

apt-get install mysql-server
apt-get install redmine redmine-mysql
apt-get install libapache2-mod-passenger postfix (select Internet site)
vi /etc/aliases (add line below but change yourusername to whatever yours is)
  yourusername: enteryouremailaddress@gmailorwhatever.com
newaliases
echo "RailsBaseURI /redmine" > /etc/apache2/sites-available/redmine
a2ensite redmine
cp /usr/share/redmine/config/configuration.yml.example /etc/redmine/default/configuration.yml
vi /etc/redmine/default/configuration.yml (uncomment/comment as below)
   #default configuration options for all environments
   default:
   # Outgoing emails configuration (see examples above)
   email_delivery:
   delivery_method: :sendmail
   #    delivery_method: :smtp
   #    smtp_settings:
   #      address: smtp.example.com
   #      port: 25
   #      domain: example.net
   #      authentication: :login
   #      user_name: ""
   #      password: "redmine"
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
ln -s /usr/share/redmine/public /var/www/redmine
http://your.serverip.or.hostname/redmine
username: admin
password: admin (change these before use)
