h1. Plugins

Redmine plugins rely on "Rails engines":http://rails-engines.org/ to add functionalities to the application.

h2. Installing a plugin

1. If you're using a 0.7.x release, you need to install the "Rails engines plugin":http://rails-engines.org/ (make sure to get the Rails 2.0.2 version). As of 0.8.0, Rails engines is included in Redmine, so skip this step unless you're using an older Redmine version.

<pre>
ruby script/plugin install http://svn.rails-engines.org/engines/tags/rel_2.0.0/
mv vendor/plugins/rel_2.0.0 vendor/plugins/engines
</pre>

2. Then, copy your plugin directory into @#{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/plugins@.

3. If the plugin requires a migration, run the following command to upgrade your database (make a db backup before):

rake db:migrate_plugins RAILS_ENV=production

4. Restart Redmine

You should now be able to see the plugin list in _Administration -> Plugins_ and configure the newly installed plugin (if the plugin requires to be configured).
