HowTo Install Redmine 4.0.0 on Fedora 29

This guide is not complete. It will be completed in the next two weeks.

System Requirements

It is assumed that the Server Edition is installed on the system in this guide.

Web Server

Nginx/Passenger

The Fedora nginx package do not include Passenger, so you have to build nginx with the passenger module. The guide assume that the sources are extracted under the directory /opt . The nginx software will be installed at /opt/ngnix. At the time of writting that guide this was the current stable releases of passenger and nginx:

  • passenger-6.0.0
  • nginx-1.14.2

Downloading the sources:

Passenger

> cd /opt
> wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/phusion-passenger/releases/passenger-6.0.0.tar.gz
> tar xf passenger-6.0.0.tar.gz

Nginx

> wget http://nginx.org/download/nginx-1.14.2.tar.gz
> mkdir /opt/src
> cd /opt/src
> tar xf nginx-1.14.2.tar.gz

Installing additional packages

For the build of passenger and nginx the following additional packages are needed to be installed:

> dnf install install gcc-c++ libcurl-devel openssl-devel zlib-devel

Execute the ruby script for building and installing

The simplest way to build and install the nginx web server with the passenger module is to run the script passenger-install-nginx-module.

> /opt/passenger-6.0.0/bin
> ./passenger-install-nginx-module --prefix=/opt/nginx --nginx-source-dir=/opt/src/nginx-1.14.2 --languages ruby

With the same passenger locality the installer modify the nginx configuration file /opt/nginx/conf/nginx.conf and output the same text:

  http {
      ...
      passenger_root /opt/passenger-6.0.0;
      passenger_ruby /usr/bin/ruby;
      ...
  }
