HowTo keep Redmine in sync with Github without dedicated plugin (Apache CGI + Github Webhook)

This is a solution in case you don't want to install additional plugins just to keep repository synchronised. It requires you to have Apache webserver with access to repository you are trying to sync. Apache has to support running CGI scripts.

Prepare CGI script

Any script you run on your server will do. Below is an example of Bash script that pulls git repository and notifies Redmine to fetch changesets:

#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/git -C /var/lib/redmine/tv/repo/token_voting pull -n -q
result1=$?

/usr/bin/curl --max-time 60 -s 'https://tv.michalczyk.pro/sys/fetch_changesets?id=token-voting&key=2GkhmLmtTjKoXYf6PS9y' >/dev/null
result2=$?

if [[ $result1 && $result2 ]]; then
  echo "Status: 200 OK" 
else
  echo "Status: 500 Internal Server Error" 
fi

echo "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8" 
echo

if [[ $result1 ]]; then
  echo "git pull: ok" 
else
  echo "git pull: failed" 
fi

if [[ $result2 ]]; then
  echo "fetch changesets: ok" 
else
  echo "fetch changesets: failed" 
fi

Let's say you save this script under: /var/www/localhost/cgi-bin/update-repo.cgi
