Simple Apache configuration

Added by Alon Bar-Lev over 9 years ago


In RedmineInstall there are no instructions of how to make apache work with redmine, I believe many people will require apache based installation and authentication.

The closest documentation I found is [1], but it looks that it is unnatural. Also, modification of local files which are not reside in /etc or /var is breaking package management integrity.

Are there any available documentation for making this work?

Have you seen ? This uses a mongrel cluster with apache as a proxy balancer. I've got this running under Windows XP and Mac 10.5. shows how to configure redmine under a prefix rather than running at the root of the domain (e.g. server/redmine rather than redmine.server/) which I prefer.

On windows, I installed mongrel_service and have 3 instances starting up. They auto-start as services same as apache so the whole thing runs stand-alone.

On OS X, I've got a launchd script that launches mongrel at system startup which works fine (easier than windows).

Thank you!

I thought there is a simpler configuration... Using the proxy configuration introduce a security issue, as apache authentication cannot be securely pass into the next daemon (feature #1131).

I am looking for CGI configuration, so that user authenticates to apache, and redmine runs within this environment.

I am also having troubles using redmine as it cannot be used without javascript, and uses too much javascript which is not compatible with konqueror (I opened defect #1337), maybe it is result of rales framework?

I think I will wait to next version to see how things progress.

Anyway, it looks like a great project!

I used mod_rails (also called passenger). The apache configuration was damn-easy then. In addition, I use ldap authentication with auto-generation of users from ldap. This was useful because I used the same ldap to autheticate svn access.
