Hello Eren,

I strongly recommend against using either of these referenced howto's1 as a base for installing a fresh Redmine instance nowadays. They are outdated, confusing or just plain wrong.

Make sure you only install a supported Redmine version (currently either 2.5.3 or 2.6.0) on a supported CentOS box (currently 6.6 or 7.0), whatever howto you are following. Also, be aware of the fact that almost all howto's describe one specific way of getting an (old) Redmine instance up and running, while there are almost always other ways to achieve to same thing (think about using different servers, application-servers, rubies, proxies, loadbalancers etc.). Be sure you understand what you're doing (and what your alternatives are) while you are following the steps given in a howto.

The only more recent and decent howtos for CentOS I could find are Redmine_203_with_Subversion_and_LDAP_Authentication_(for_Redmine_and_Subversion_through_Redmine)_on_Centos_6_i386_-_detailed and Install_Redmine_25x_on_Centos_65_complete. But those have some specific assumptions and specific requirements that you might not need or want and they are also slightly outdated (Redmine 2.0.3 and 2.5.0, which are not supported anymore).

Kind regards,

Mischa.

Edit by Mischa: added second howto which is recent and decent.
