Upgrade installation on Ubuntu 12.04

Added by Matteo Bagattini over 8 years ago

Dear folks,
I'm using a virtual server configured by a colleague who's not working with me anymore. Server has Ubuntu 12.04 and Redmine was, as far as I can understand, installed via apt-get.

It seems to me that apt repository has Redmine 2.3.1 as its latest available version; is it possible to install latest version without upgrading whole Ubuntu installation?

Ideally I'd like to check out from repository and keep getting updates via SVN, but as far as I can see installation via apt is a little bit different: files are not located in an unique position but scattered around /etc, /usr and /var.

Thanks in advance,

You could either install from source or try to find a PPA that has the latest version for your release.

The main PPA maintainer for Ubuntu is now targetting the latest LTS release of Ubuntu only.


I was thinking of experimenting with an rbenv based install recipe for Ubuntu, given the horrible tension between the Debian and Ruby "Ways" with regard to packaging and version management...
