The installation assumes that the web server and database are already in place, so you probably want to install the LAMP stack first if you don't already have it:
6 22 Anthony C
7 22 Anthony C
> $ sudo tasksel install lamp-server
8 22 Anthony C
9 22 Anthony C
Also, the default AppArmor configuration can get in the way, so you may need to set the mysqld profile to complain:
10 22 Anthony C
11 22 Anthony C
> $ sudo aa-complain /usr/sbin/mysqld
12 22 Anthony C
13 14 allen yeh
As of 10.04, Redmine is available through Ubuntu's package manager, and installation is simple:

15 14 allen yeh
> $ sudo apt-get install redmine redmine-mysql subversion

The second package, _redmine-mysql_, can be replaced by either _redmine-pgsql_ or _redmine-sqlite_ if you want to use either of those databases.

The installation process should prompt you for all the interesting details.

Redmine will now be installed in @/usr/share/redmine@ and @/etc/redmine@
22 1 Umit Uzun
23 22 Anthony C
If you set your AppArmor mysqld profile to complain you ought to set it back to enforce:
24 22 Anthony C
25 22 Anthony C
> $ sudo aa-enforce /usr/sbin/mysqld
26 22 Anthony C

h2. Configuration

29 22 Anthony C
Symlink @/usr/share/redmine/public@ to your desired web-accessible location.  E.g.:
30 22 Anthony C
31 22 Anthony C
> $ sudo ln -s /usr/share/redmine/public /var/www/redmine
32 22 Anthony C
33 22 Anthony C
By default, passenger runs as 'nobody', so you'll need to fix that. In @/etc/apache2/mods-available/passenger.conf@, add:
34 22 Anthony C
35 22 Anthony C
> PassengerDefaultUser www-data
36 22 Anthony C
37 22 Anthony C
You'll also need to configure the @/var/www/redmine@ location in @/etc/apache2/sites-available/default@ by adding:
38 22 Anthony C
39 22 Anthony C
<pre><Directory /var/www/redmine>
40 22 Anthony C
    RailsBaseURI /redmine
41 22 Anthony C
    PassengerResolveSymlinksInDocumentRoot on
42 22 Anthony C
</Directory>
43 22 Anthony C
</pre>
44 22 Anthony C
45 22 Anthony C
Enable passenger:
46 22 Anthony C
47 22 Anthony C
> $ sudo a2enmod passenger
48 22 Anthony C
49 23 Anthony C
Restart apache2 and you should be able to access Redmine at: http://redmine.server.ip.address/redmine
50 22 Anthony C
51 22 Anthony C
If you receive a "403: Forbidden" error after setting up Redmine, the Redmine 'public' folder may have incorrect permissions set. The executable bit on the public folder must be enabled or you will receive a "403: Forbidden" error when attempting to access Redmine.
52 22 Anthony C
53 22 Anthony C
> $ sudo chmod a+x /usr/share/redmine/public
54 22 Anthony C
55 22 Anthony C
h1. Ubuntu 10.4 using mod_cgi
56 22 Anthony C
57 22 Anthony C
The installation assumes that the web server and database are already in place, so you probably want to install the LAMP stack first if you don't already have it:

h1. Redmine Installation on Virtual or Normal Ubuntu < 10.04
128 1 Umit Uzun
129 21 Graham King
This page is a guide to installing Redmine on either a virtual or actual installation of the Ubuntu operating system.  If you follow all instructions correctly you will have installed your Redmine server successfully in almost an hour.
130 1 Umit Uzun
131 2 Sam Wilson
h2. Step 1: Install Ubuntu
132 1 Umit Uzun
133 2 Sam Wilson
If you are installing on a non-virtual Ubuntu instance, please skip this section.
134 1 Umit Uzun
135 2 Sam Wilson
*Installing VirtualBox:*
136 2 Sam Wilson
137 21 Graham King
1.Download the latest version of Sun VirtualBox (version 3.0.10 or newer).
138 21 Graham King
2.Install VirtualBox by following the instructions.
139 1 Umit Uzun
140 1 Umit Uzun
*Installing Ubuntu on VirtualBox:*
141 1 Umit Uzun
142 21 Graham King
1.Download the latest version of Ubuntu (version 9.10 or newer).
143 21 Graham King
2.After installing VirtualBox you will create a new virtual operating which will be Linux type and Ubuntu subtype. If you don't know anything about VirtualBox and/or its usage please refer to Google.
144 1 Umit Uzun
145 21 Graham King
3.While installing Ubuntu you should enter the following configuration:
146 21 Graham King
(This suggested configuration is optional, you can enter any names you want.)
147 1 Umit Uzun
Q: What is your name? A: Redmine Server
148 1 Umit Uzun
Q: What name do you want to use to login? A: redmine
149 1 Umit Uzun
Q: Choose to password to keep your account safe? A: redmine
150 1 Umit Uzun
Q: What is the name of this computer? A: redmine-server
151 1 Umit Uzun
Choose “Log in automatically.” radio button.
152 1 Umit Uzun
153 21 Graham King
4.When you've finished the installation, open up your new VirtualBox Ubuntu OS and open up a terminal (console) screen and issue these commands:
154 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo apt-get update
155 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo apt-get upgrade
156 1 Umit Uzun
157 1 Umit Uzun
*Configuring VirtualBox:*
158 1 Umit Uzun
159 21 Graham King
1.If you want to reach your VirtualBox Ubuntu OS from a different machine, you have to configure VirtualBox Ubuntu OS's network settings to Bridged Adapter. So you can reach your VirtualBox Ubuntu from an internal IP address easily. Because it get's the same IP block as you from DHCP easily. I mean your guest and host computer is same IP block as different network client.
160 1 Umit Uzun
161 21 Graham King
2.If you had assigned a static IP to your Network Consult by giving your static ethernet MAC address, you have to assign the unique MAC address your VirtualBox Ubuntu OS by Setting->Network->MAC address initialization box. By this MAC address, you can get a static IP easily or you can configure your Ubuntu system to not use DHCP, instead of that you can assign a static IP manually.
162 1 Umit Uzun
163 2 Sam Wilson
h2. Step 2: Install Redmine
164 1 Umit Uzun
165 2 Sam Wilson
Once you have a functioning Ubuntu operating system up and running, you can continue with installing Redmine.
166 1 Umit Uzun
167 2 Sam Wilson
h3. Install dependencies
168 2 Sam Wilson
169 2 Sam Wilson

h3. Package Installation and Setup
198 16 Ian Epperson
199 1 Umit Uzun
1.Once you’ve installed the VirtualBox Ubuntu OS and updated it, you need to install a bunch of packages that we will prepare the server for the Redmine installation. So, as root, install the following packages by issuing: 
200 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo apt-get install 
201 2 Sam Wilson
> sudo apt-get install 
202 21 Graham King
(_Surely some missing package names above?_)
203 1 Umit Uzun
204 1 Umit Uzun
The packages we’re installing above are MySQL, phpMyAdmin, Rails, Ruby Gems, Mongrel and Ruby Dev environment.
205 21 Graham King
During the installation of the packages, when MySQL is installed, it will prompt you to	create a password. Make sure you remember it. You will need it later to log in to phpMyAdmin. To make things simple you can set all passwords to “redmine”.
206 1 Umit Uzun
207 21 Graham King
2.Create a new directory for Redmine. I put mine in /opt/redmine. And download the latest version of Redmine in to it with the wget command line downloader and extract it by issuing:
208 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo mkdir /opt/redmine
209 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo cd /opt/redmine
210 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo wget http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/66633/redmine-0.8.6.tar.gz
211 1 Umit Uzun
> tar -xvf redmine-0.8.6.tar.gz
212 1 Umit Uzun
213 16 Ian Epperson
h3. Database Setup
214 1 Umit Uzun
215 1 Umit Uzun
1.Now it’s time to create an empty database for Redmine. As you may have noticed, we installed phpMyAdmin earlier. phpMyAdmin will come in handy now. Head over to http://localhost/phpmyadmin. You should be presented with the phpMyAdmin login screen.
216 1 Umit Uzun
Type in “root” and the MySQL “password” you created when installing MySQL.
217 1 Umit Uzun
218 21 Graham King
2.First, click on “Databases” then, at the bottom of the screen, in the “Create new database” text box create a new database called “redmine” and set “Collation” to “utf8_general_ci”.
219 1 Umit Uzun
220 1 Umit Uzun
3.Now, go back to the home screen and click on:
221 1 Umit Uzun
“Privileges”
222 1 Umit Uzun
“Add a new User” 
223 1 Umit Uzun
Fill out the “Login Information” boxes. Call your user “redmine”. Make sure you remember password you create here. It will be used when you set up the database connection details in Redmine.
224 1 Umit Uzun
In the “Database for user” section, check “Create database with same name and grant all privileges” and click on the “Go” button.
225 1 Umit Uzun
226 1 Umit Uzun
4.Log out of phpMyAdmin.
227 1 Umit Uzun
228 16 Ian Epperson
h3. Redmine Database Connection Configuration
229 1 Umit Uzun
230 1 Umit Uzun
1.It’s time to configure the database connection. If you installed Redmine as I did above, then copy “config/database.yml.example” to “config/database.yml” and edit this file in order to configure your database settings for “production” environment. You’ll find the “database.yml.example” issuing:
231 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/config
232 1 Umit Uzun
233 1 Umit Uzun
2.So now, assuming you’re in the “/opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/config” directory, issue:
234 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo cp database.yml.example database.yml 
235 1 Umit Uzun
236 1 Umit Uzun
3.Then, open the “database.yml” file, issue:
237 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo gedit database.yml
238 1 Umit Uzun
… and edit it as in the example for a MySQL database below:
239 1 Umit Uzun
240 1 Umit Uzun
production:
241 1 Umit Uzun
adapter: mysql
242 1 Umit Uzun
socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
243 1 Umit Uzun
database: redmine
244 1 Umit Uzun
host: localhost
245 1 Umit Uzun
username: redmine
246 1 Umit Uzun
password: [password]
247 1 Umit Uzun
248 21 Graham King
Then save the “database.yml” file and exit to the command prompt.
249 1 Umit Uzun
On Ubuntu the “mysql.sock” is located in /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock, as noted in the “config” above. 
250 1 Umit Uzun
(The standard Redmine installation assumes the socket is located in “/opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/tmp/mysqld.sock”.)
251 1 Umit Uzun
252 21 Graham King
4.Create the database structure, by running the following command under the application root directory (I mean “/opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6”):
253 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV="production" 
254 21 Graham King
It will create the necessary tables in the redmine database you created earlier and an administrator account.
255 1 Umit Uzun
256 21 Graham King
5.Insert the default configuration data in to the database, by issuing:
257 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo rake redmine:load_default_data RAILS_ENV="production" 
258 21 Graham King
(This step is optional but highly recommended, as you can define your own configuration from scratch. It will load default roles, trackers, statuses, work flows and enumerations. While loading default data command prompt wants to given language selection by you.) 
259 1 Umit Uzun
260 16 Ian Epperson
h3.  Setting up Permissions
261 1 Umit Uzun
262 1 Umit Uzun
1.The user who runs Redmine must have write permission on the following sub directories: “files”, “log”, “tmp” (create the last one if not present). You probably already have a “tmp” directory in /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6, but if you don’t, create one now by issuing:
263 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo mkdir /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6
264 1 Umit Uzun
265 1 Umit Uzun
2.If you haven’t created a Redmine user, do it now by issuing:
266 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo useradd redmine
267 1 Umit Uzun
268 1 Umit Uzun
3.Now, assuming you run Redmine with a redmine user, from your /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6 directory issue:
269 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo chown -R redmine:redmine files log tmp
270 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo chmod -R 755 files log tmp
271 1 Umit Uzun
272 16 Ian Epperson
h3.  Testing the Installation
273 1 Umit Uzun
274 1 Umit Uzun
1.It should all be working now. Test the installation by running the WEBrick web server issue:
275 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6
276 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo ruby script/server -e production
277 1 Umit Uzun
	
278 21 Graham King
Once WEBrick has started, point your browser to http://localhost:3000/. Or, if you are using a browser on a computer other than the one you installed Redmine on, point your browser to http://192.168.1.10:3000/ (if that’s the IP address you gave your Redmine server). You should now see the application welcome page. 
279 1 Umit Uzun
280 1 Umit Uzun
*Log in:*
281 1 Umit Uzun
282 1 Umit Uzun
1.Use default administrator account to log in:
283 1 Umit Uzun
Login : admin
284 1 Umit Uzun
Password : admin
285 1 Umit Uzun
286 1 Umit Uzun
2.You can go to Admin & Settings to modify application settings.
287 1 Umit Uzun
288 16 Ian Epperson
h3.  Setting Up Static IP
289 1 Umit Uzun
290 21 Graham King
1.An easier method for configuring a static IP address is to use your local DHCP server to assign a permanent IP to the VirtualBox OS mac address. That way you will not have to do anything inside VBS. Consult your network administrator. 
291 1 Umit Uzun
292 21 Graham King
2.Or you should determine the configuration parameters given below, and then you can configure your system to have a static IP address:
293 1 Umit Uzun
The desired IP address
294 1 Umit Uzun
Network mask and broadcast address
295 1 Umit Uzun
Gateway address
296 1 Umit Uzun
Your local DNS server address(es)
297 1 Umit Uzun
298 16 Ian Epperson
h3.  Assigning Host Name and Domain for VirtualBox OS
299 1 Umit Uzun
300 21 Graham King
1.An easier method for adding your IP address - Host name pair configuration to your DNS server . Consult your network administrator.
301 1 Umit Uzun
302 2 Sam Wilson
h2. Configuring the Passenger Apache module
303 1 Umit Uzun
304 21 Graham King
Passenger is a module for apache2 that allows Apache to run Ruby on Rails applications.  Install it thus:
305 2 Sam Wilson
306 2 Sam Wilson
>$ sudo gem install passenger
307 2 Sam Wilson
308 2 Sam Wilson
Then go to the passenger apache2 module installation directory and run @passenger-install-apache2-module@
309 2 Sam Wilson
310 2 Sam Wilson
> $ cd /var/lib/gems/1.X/gems/passenger-X.X.X/
311 2 Sam Wilson
312 2 Sam Wilson
> $ sudo bin/passenger-install-apache2-module
313 2 Sam Wilson
314 2 Sam Wilson
Next, configure Apache:
315 2 Sam Wilson
316 2 Sam Wilson
In /etc/apache2/mods-available/passenger.load we will add next line
317 2 Sam Wilson
318 2 Sam Wilson
> LoadModule passenger_module /var/lib/gems/1.X/gems/passenger-X.X.X/ext/apache2/mod_passenger.so
319 2 Sam Wilson
320 2 Sam Wilson
We have to edit the conf of the passenger apache2 module in /etc/apache2/mods-available/passenger.conf
321 2 Sam Wilson
322 2 Sam Wilson
> PassengerRoot /var/lib/gems/1.X/gems/passenger-X.X.X
323 2 Sam Wilson
> PassengerRuby /usr/bin/ruby1.X
324 2 Sam Wilson
325 21 Graham King
And now we activate the module
326 2 Sam Wilson
327 2 Sam Wilson
> $ sudo a2enmod passenger

h2. Sendmail Server Configuration
375 2 Sam Wilson
376 21 Graham King
1.Before configuring email support for Redmine, we should download the sendmail application for Ubuntu, issue:
377 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo apt-get install sendmail
378 21 Graham King
> sudo sendmailconfig (Answer Yes to all questions which you will be asked)
379 1 Umit Uzun
380 1 Umit Uzun
2.It’s time to configure the server connection. Copy “config/email.yml.example” to “config/email.yml” and edit this file in order to configure your database settings for “production” environment. You’ll find the “email.yml.example” issue:
381 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/config
382 1 Umit Uzun
383 1 Umit Uzun
3.So now, assuming you’re in the “/config” directory, issue:
384 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo cp email.yml.example email.yml 
385 1 Umit Uzun
386 1 Umit Uzun
4.Then, open the “email.yml” file, issue:
387 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo gedit email.yml
388 1 Umit Uzun
… and edit it as in the example for sendmail configuration below:
389 1 Umit Uzun
390 1 Umit Uzun
production:
391 1 Umit Uzun
delivery_method: :sendmail
392 1 Umit Uzun
sendmail_settings:
393 1 Umit Uzun
location: /usr/sbin/sendmail
394 1 Umit Uzun
arguments: -i -t
395 1 Umit Uzun
address: smtp.example.net
396 1 Umit Uzun
port: 25
397 1 Umit Uzun
domain: example.net
398 1 Umit Uzun
authentication: :none
399 1 Umit Uzun
user_name: redmine@example.net
400 1 Umit Uzun
password: redmine
401 1 Umit Uzun
402 1 Umit Uzun
Then save “email.yml” file and exit to the command prompt.
403 1 Umit Uzun
404 1 Umit Uzun
5.It’s time to configure the “environmet.rb” configuration. Open up the “environment.rb” and change “config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries = false” to “config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries = true” then save and close the “environment.rb”.

h2.  Subversion Installation and Configuration
407 1 Umit Uzun
408 21 Graham King
1.Before configuring Subversion support for Redmine, we should download the Subversion application for Ubuntu, issue:
409 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo apt-get install subversion
410 1 Umit Uzun
411 1 Umit Uzun
2.If your Redmine can't find the “subversion” command you can help to find by issuing:
412 1 Umit Uzun
· > sudo cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/config
413 1 Umit Uzun
· > sudo gedit environment.rb
414 1 Umit Uzun
· Add ENV['PATH'] = "#{ENV['PATH']}:/subversion/path" line in it.
415 1 Umit Uzun
· Save and close the “environment.rb”
416 1 Umit Uzun
417 16 Ian Epperson
h2.  Start Application at Boot Time
418 1 Umit Uzun
419 1 Umit Uzun
1.To automatically start the application on booting your server you need to modify your “crontab”, issue:
420 1 Umit Uzun
> export EDITOR=gedit
421 1 Umit Uzun
> crontab -e
422 1 Umit Uzun
423 1 Umit Uzun
2.Your “crontab” file will be presented. This is the list of programs that start at certain times or at boot. Add the following to the “crontab” (all on one line):
424 1 Umit Uzun
@reboot cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6 ; rm -f log/mongrel.pid ; mongrel_rails start -e production -p 3000 -d
425 1 Umit Uzun
426 16 Ian Epperson
h2.  Backup
427 1 Umit Uzun
428 1 Umit Uzun
1.Running backups is always a good idea. Redmine backups should include:
429 16 Ian Epperson
* data (stored in your redmine database) 
430 1 Umit Uzun
/usr/bin/mysqldump -u -p | gzip > /path/to/redmine/backup/db/redmine_`date +%y_%m_%d`.gz
431 16 Ian Epperson
* attachments (stored in the files directory of your Redmine install)
432 1 Umit Uzun
rsync -a /path/to/redmine/files /path/to/redmine/backup/files
433 1 Umit Uzun
434 21 Graham King
2.Or you can use the bash shell to automate this kind of operation, issue:
435 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6
436 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo mkdir backup
437 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo mkdir backup/db
438 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo mkdir backup/files
439 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo gedit backup/runRedmineBackup.bash
440 1 Umit Uzun
441 21 Graham King
And after open “runRedmineBackup.bash” with gedit, write all commands below:
442 16 Ian Epperson
<pre>
443 1 Umit Uzun
#!/bin/bash
444 1 Umit Uzun
data=`date -I`
445 1 Umit Uzun
mysqldump --user=root --password="redmine" --all-databases | gzip > db/backup-$data.sql.gz
446 1 Umit Uzun
cd db
447 1 Umit Uzun
ftp -i -n << EOF
448 1 Umit Uzun
open ftpserver.example.net
449 1 Umit Uzun
user username password
450 1 Umit Uzun
bin
451 1 Umit Uzun
mput backup-$data.sql.gz
452 1 Umit Uzun
bye
453 1 Umit Uzun
EOF
454 16 Ian Epperson
</pre>
455 21 Graham King
Then save the “runRedmineBackup.bash” file and exit to the command prompt. After creation of runRedmineBackup.bash you can add this bash script to run continually between specified periods. Issue:
456 1 Umit Uzun
457 1 Umit Uzun
> export EDITOR=gedit
458 1 Umit Uzun
> crontab -e
459 1 Umit Uzun
Add 0 0 * * 0 cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/backup ; sh runRedmineBackup.bash commands to crontab to backup database weekly.
460 1 Umit Uzun
	
461 21 Graham King
For this to work without any permission problems you have to change the permissions of the files to maximum, issue:
462 1 Umit Uzun
463 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo chmod -R 777 backup
464 1 Umit Uzun
> sudo chown -R redmine:redmine backup
465 1 Umit Uzun
466 21 Graham King
That's all. Now we have completely installed Redmine on our virtual Ubuntu OS and can reach it from any machine in our network easily. Congratulations..!
