Installation questions

Added by Em Dangla over 11 years ago

Hi,

I'm trying to follow the installation guidelines found in this site: http://www.redmine.org/wiki/redmine/RedmineInstall

Step #3 is kind of confusing because I'm not sure if it's like creating another database.yml file with the specified example and if it's the same config folder.

In Step #4, I'm confused what "application root directory" is pointing out to. Anyway, what I did here in order to run "rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV="production"" is that I downloaded rake (http://rake.rubyforge.org), extracted it and went to its ..\rake-0.8.2.tgz\rake-0.8.2\lib folder. In the command prompt, I then typed "rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV="production"". Neither error message nor success message was reported so I don't know if I did it right. Will someone kindly confirm this? Thanks!

Step #6 also confuses me. Does the lines

sudo chown -R redmine:redmine files log tmp
sudo chmod -R 755 files log tmp

actually allows me to setup permissions? And in what directory should I type these lines? There seems to be no sudo chown/chmod variables available. Also, how do I actually run Redmine (as stated in Instruction/Step #6 in this site http://www.redmine.org/wiki/redmine/RedmineInstall)

I'm really sorry for the noob questions.. I hope you guys understand (_) I'm trying my best to look for solutions regarding these questions, but I just can't seem to find anything helpful. :| Sorry..

That's why you have should follow this notice: http://www.redmine.org/boards/2/topics/show/667

Redmine installation guide is designed for linux users, since windows user prefer all integrated stack like bitnami redmine stack (http://bitnami.org/product/redmine). Windows has no (real) permission, so (as I just modified it) you can skip this step and continue.

Thank you so much Mr. Lecavelier. I think I should try Bitnami as I'm really having trouble. Thanks again!
