These instructions assume that you have a web server (Apache2) and a database (PostgreSQL or MySQL) already in place.  They also assume that you have the ability to carry out sudo commands and that you have at least a passing familiarity with the linux OS and file system.  Lines you should type in will be on their own line and will be preceded by a '>'.

h2. Become root or be prepared to type sudo before every command.

You can also save yourself a lot of time if you are doing a big install/configuration job by simply becoming 'real root' instead of typing sudo before everything by typing in either of these commands;

 - OR - 
16 1 Umit Uzun
17 43 Recent Coin
>sudo -i

Both will ask you to supply your password again and then you will get a # prompt which shows that you are "root" and no longer have to keep typing sudo.

Installing Ubuntu's entire LAMP stack also installs PHP as well as the PHP connectors for apache, mysql, etc. If you are using RoR, installing all of that is probably unnecessary.  As a general rule of practice, it is best not to install anything you don't actually need.  That which isn't installed is not a potential security hole.  The statements below will install apache2 and the proper database.

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.

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.

h3. Package Installation and Setup
313 36 Anonymous
314 36 Anonymous
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:
315 36 Anonymous
> sudo apt-get install
316 36 Anonymous
> sudo apt-get install
317 36 Anonymous
(_Surely some missing package names above?_)
318 36 Anonymous
319 36 Anonymous
The packages we’re installing above are MySQL, phpMyAdmin, Rails, Ruby Gems, Mongrel and Ruby Dev environment.
320 36 Anonymous
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”.
321 36 Anonymous
322 36 Anonymous
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:
323 36 Anonymous
> sudo mkdir /opt/redmine
324 36 Anonymous

330 36 Anonymous
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.
331 36 Anonymous
Type in “root” and the MySQL “password” you created when installing MySQL.
332 36 Anonymous
333 36 Anonymous
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”.

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.

In the “Database for user” section, check “Create database with same name and grant all privileges” and click on the “Go” button.

h3. Redmine Database Connection Configuration

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:

> sudo cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/config

348 36 Anonymous
2.So now, assuming you’re in the “/opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/config” directory, issue:
349 36 Anonymous
> sudo cp database.yml.example database.yml
350 36 Anonymous
351 36 Anonymous
3.Then, open the “database.yml” file, issue:
352 36 Anonymous
> sudo gedit database.yml

… and edit it as in the example for a MySQL database below:

362 36 Anonymous
363 36 Anonymous
Then save the “database.yml” file and exit to the command prompt.
364 36 Anonymous
On Ubuntu the “mysql.sock” is located in /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock, as noted in the “config” above.

(The standard Redmine installation assumes the socket is located in “/opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/tmp/mysqld.sock”.)

4.Create the database structure, by running the following command under the application root directory (I mean “/opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6”):

5.Insert the default configuration data in to the database, by issuing:
372 36 Anonymous
> sudo rake redmine:load_default_data RAILS_ENV="production"
373 36 Anonymous
(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.)

h3. Setting up Permissions
376 36 Anonymous
377 36 Anonymous
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:
378 36 Anonymous
> sudo mkdir /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6
379 36 Anonymous
380 36 Anonymous
2.If you haven’t created a Redmine user, do it now by issuing:
381 36 Anonymous
> sudo useradd redmine
382 36 Anonymous
383 36 Anonymous
3.Now, assuming you run Redmine with a redmine user, from your /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6 directory issue:
384 36 Anonymous
> sudo chown -R redmine:redmine files log tmp
385 36 Anonymous

h3. Testing the Installation
388 36 Anonymous
389 36 Anonymous
1.It should all be working now. Test the installation by running the WEBrick web server issue:

> sudo cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6
391 36 Anonymous
> sudo ruby script/server -e production
392 36 Anonymous
393 36 Anonymous
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.

Passenger is a module for apache2 that allows Apache to run Ruby on Rails applications. Install it thus:
420 36 Anonymous
421 36 Anonymous
>$ sudo gem install passenger

429 36 Anonymous
Next, configure Apache:
430 36 Anonymous
431 36 Anonymous
In /etc/apache2/mods-available/passenger.load we will add next line

h2. Sendmail Server Configuration
490 36 Anonymous
491 36 Anonymous
1.Before configuring email support for Redmine, we should download the sendmail application for Ubuntu, issue:
492 36 Anonymous
493 36 Anonymous
> sudo apt-get install sendmail
494 36 Anonymous
495 36 Anonymous
> sudo sendmailconfig
496 36 Anonymous

499 36 Anonymous
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:
500 36 Anonymous
> sudo cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/config
501 36 Anonymous
502 37 João Lencart e Silva

3.So now, assuming you’re in the “/config” directory, issue:
505 36 Anonymous
> sudo cp email.yml.example email.yml
506 36 Anonymous
507 36 Anonymous
4.Then, open the “email.yml” file, issue:
508 36 Anonymous
> sudo gedit email.yml
509 36 Anonymous
… and edit it as in the example for sendmail configuration below:
510 36 Anonymous
511 36 Anonymous
production:
512 36 Anonymous
delivery_method: :sendmail
513 36 Anonymous
sendmail_settings:

523 36 Anonymous
Then save “email.yml” file and exit to the command prompt.
524 36 Anonymous
525 36 Anonymous
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. Email configuration for Ubuntu 12.04 with redmine >v1.4.3
528 37 João Lencart e Silva
529 37 João Lencart e Silva
1. Instead of creating an email.yml, edit config/configuration.yml and add a section
530 37 João Lencart e Silva
<pre>
531 37 João Lencart e Silva
production:
532 37 João Lencart e Silva
   email_delivery:
533 37 João Lencart e Silva
     delivery_method: :smtp
534 37 João Lencart e Silva
...</pre>
535 37 João Lencart e Silva
536 37 João Lencart e Silva
or
537 37 João Lencart e Silva
538 37 João Lencart e Silva
<pre>production:
539 37 João Lencart e Silva
   email_delivery:
540 37 João Lencart e Silva
     delivery_method: :sendmail
541 37 João Lencart e Silva
...</pre>
542 37 João Lencart e Silva
543 37 João Lencart e Silva
Please see http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/EmailConfiguration for the correct format of the full email block.
544 37 João Lencart e Silva
545 37 João Lencart e Silva
2. **DO NOT CHANGE** environment.rb config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries. The correct way is changing configuration.yml and leaving the default config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries setting to false:
546 37 João Lencart e Silva
@config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries = false@

h2. Start Application at Boot Time
564 36 Anonymous
565 36 Anonymous
1.To automatically start the application on booting your server you need to modify your “crontab”, issue:
566 36 Anonymous
> export EDITOR=gedit
567 36 Anonymous
> crontab -e
568 36 Anonymous
569 36 Anonymous
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):
570 36 Anonymous
@reboot cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6 ; rm -f log/mongrel.pid ; mongrel_rails start -e production -p 3000 -d
571 36 Anonymous
572 36 Anonymous
h2. Backup
573 36 Anonymous
574 36 Anonymous
1.Running backups is always a good idea. Redmine backups should include:
575 36 Anonymous
* data (stored in your redmine database)
576 36 Anonymous
/usr/bin/mysqldump -u -p | gzip > /path/to/redmine/backup/db/redmine_`date +%y_%m_%d`.gz
577 36 Anonymous
* attachments (stored in the files directory of your Redmine install)
578 36 Anonymous
rsync -a /path/to/redmine/files /path/to/redmine/backup/files
579 36 Anonymous
580 36 Anonymous
2.Or you can use the bash shell to automate this kind of operation, issue:
581 36 Anonymous
> sudo cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6
582 36 Anonymous
> sudo mkdir backup
583 36 Anonymous
> sudo mkdir backup/db
584 36 Anonymous
> sudo mkdir backup/files
585 36 Anonymous
> sudo gedit backup/runRedmineBackup.bash
586 36 Anonymous
587 36 Anonymous
And after open “runRedmineBackup.bash” with gedit, write all commands below:
588 36 Anonymous
<pre>
589 36 Anonymous
#!/bin/bash
590 36 Anonymous
data=`date -I`
591 36 Anonymous
mysqldump --user=root --password="redmine" --all-databases | gzip > db/backup-$data.sql.gz

mput backup-$data.sql.gz
598 36 Anonymous
bye
599 36 Anonymous
EOF
600 36 Anonymous
</pre>
601 36 Anonymous
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:
602 36 Anonymous
603 36 Anonymous
> export EDITOR=gedit
604 36 Anonymous
> crontab -e
605 36 Anonymous
Add 0 0 * * 0 cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/backup ; sh runRedmineBackup.bash commands to crontab to backup database weekly.
606 36 Anonymous
607 36 Anonymous
For this to work without any permission problems you have to change the permissions of the files to maximum, issue:
608 36 Anonymous
609 36 Anonymous
> sudo chmod -R 777 backup
610 36 Anonymous
> sudo chown -R redmine:redmine backup
