These instructions assume that you have a basic Ubuntu server installation with command line access.  they assume that you have the rights to install a web server (Apache2) and a database (PostgreSQL or MySQL).  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 vertical grey bar.

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;

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.

There are a great many GUI's out there for most databases.  It is strongly recommended never to run your application as your "root" user on your database (e.g. MySQL root for MySQL or 'postgres' user for PostgreSQL).  There are also any number of tutorials on the creation of databases and granting of rights on them, so that it is really outside the scope of this document. These are pretty trivial to find on Google and if you are going to administer database driven applications its very advisable for you to become at least passingly familiar with SQL statements.

For PostgreSQL: CREATE USER user WITH PASSWORD 'password'; CREATE DATABASE myredminedb;GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON DATABASE myredminedb to user;

NOTE for PostgreSQL Users:  You will have to set the postgres user password before you can connect remotely.  MySQL will force you to set this during the installation but Postgres does not. To so do:
80 46 Recent Coin
81 46 Recent Coin
>su - postgres

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
399 36 Anonymous
400 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:
401 36 Anonymous
> sudo apt-get install
402 36 Anonymous
> sudo apt-get install
403 36 Anonymous
(_Surely some missing package names above?_)
404 36 Anonymous
405 36 Anonymous
The packages we’re installing above are MySQL, phpMyAdmin, Rails, Ruby Gems, Mongrel and Ruby Dev environment.
406 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”.
407 36 Anonymous
408 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:
409 36 Anonymous
> sudo mkdir /opt/redmine
410 36 Anonymous
> sudo cd /opt/redmine
411 36 Anonymous
> sudo wget http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/66633/redmine-0.8.6.tar.gz

h3. Database Setup
415 36 Anonymous
416 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.
417 36 Anonymous
Type in “root” and the MySQL “password” you created when installing MySQL.
418 36 Anonymous
419 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”.
420 36 Anonymous
421 36 Anonymous
3.Now, go back to the home screen and click on:
422 36 Anonymous
“Privileges”
423 36 Anonymous
“Add a new User”
424 36 Anonymous
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.
425 36 Anonymous
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
430 36 Anonymous
431 36 Anonymous
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:
432 36 Anonymous
> sudo cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/config
433 36 Anonymous
434 36 Anonymous
2.So now, assuming you’re in the “/opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/config” directory, issue:
435 36 Anonymous
> sudo cp database.yml.example database.yml
436 36 Anonymous
437 36 Anonymous
3.Then, open the “database.yml” file, issue:
438 36 Anonymous
> sudo gedit database.yml
439 36 Anonymous
… and edit it as in the example for a MySQL database below:
440 36 Anonymous
441 36 Anonymous
production:
442 36 Anonymous
adapter: mysql
443 36 Anonymous
socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
444 36 Anonymous
database: redmine
445 36 Anonymous
host: localhost
446 36 Anonymous
username: redmine
447 36 Anonymous
password: [password]
448 36 Anonymous
449 36 Anonymous
Then save the “database.yml” file and exit to the command prompt.
450 36 Anonymous
On Ubuntu the “mysql.sock” is located in /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock, as noted in the “config” above.
451 36 Anonymous
(The standard Redmine installation assumes the socket is located in “/opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6/tmp/mysqld.sock”.)
452 36 Anonymous
453 36 Anonymous
4.Create the database structure, by running the following command under the application root directory (I mean “/opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6”):
454 36 Anonymous
> sudo rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV="production"
455 36 Anonymous
It will create the necessary tables in the redmine database you created earlier and an administrator account.
456 36 Anonymous
457 36 Anonymous
5.Insert the default configuration data in to the database, by issuing:
458 36 Anonymous
> sudo rake redmine:load_default_data RAILS_ENV="production"
459 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.)
460 36 Anonymous
461 36 Anonymous
h3. Setting up Permissions
462 36 Anonymous
463 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:
464 36 Anonymous
> sudo mkdir /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6
465 36 Anonymous
466 36 Anonymous
2.If you haven’t created a Redmine user, do it now by issuing:
467 36 Anonymous
> sudo useradd redmine
468 36 Anonymous
469 36 Anonymous
3.Now, assuming you run Redmine with a redmine user, from your /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6 directory issue:
470 36 Anonymous
> sudo chown -R redmine:redmine files log tmp
471 36 Anonymous
> sudo chmod -R 755 files log tmp
472 36 Anonymous
473 36 Anonymous
h3. Testing the Installation
474 36 Anonymous
475 36 Anonymous
1.It should all be working now. Test the installation by running the WEBrick web server issue:
476 36 Anonymous
> sudo cd /opt/redmine/redmine-0.8.6
477 36 Anonymous
> sudo ruby script/server -e production
478 36 Anonymous
479 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.

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.

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:
688 36 Anonymous
689 36 Anonymous
