HowTo Install Redmine in a sub-URI¶
This page explains how to run Redmine in a subdirectory of your site, for instance
Using Redmine::Utils (preferred solution)¶
Add the following line at the bottom of your config/environment.rb
Redmine::Utils::relative_url_root = "/redmine"
Then restart your application.
Using Rails features¶
Add the following line at the end of your config/environment.rb :
ActionController::AbstractRequest.relative_url_root = "/redmine"Rails will then prefix all links with "/redmine". It can be considered as the simplest, cleanest and most flexible solution. Then restart your application. In more recent versions of Rails the class hierarchy has changed slightly and you will need to use
ActionController::Base.relative_url_root = "/redmine"for the class name.
Using Mongrel features¶
If you run Redmine under Mongrel server, you can alternatively use the "--prefix" option of Mongrel :
mongrel_rails start --prefix=/redmine
Mongrel_rails service "--prefix" directive does NOT work with Rails 2.3.x
To fix this issue create a file config/initializers/patch_for_mongrel.rb [name of file can be anything]:
# Fix for mongrel which still doesn't know about Rails 2.2's changes, # We provide a backwards compatible wrapper around the new # ActionController::base.relative_url_root, # so it can still be called off of the actually non-existing # AbstractRequest class. module ActionController class AbstractRequest < ActionController::Request def self.relative_url_root=(path) ActionController::Base.relative_url_root=(path) end def self.relative_url_root ActionController::Base.relative_url_root end end end # # Thanks to http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/190287
You may not run Mongrel on port 80 : if you have an Apache server on the same host, and you run Mongrel on port 8000, you can use the following Apache config to redirect (with Apache's mod_proxy enabled) :
ProxyPass /redmine http://localhost:8000/redmine ProxyPassReverse /redmine http://localhost:8000/redmine
Using Passenger (aka mod_rails) features¶
If you run Redmine under Apache web server with Phusion Passenger module, you can follow this guide ; please note it won't work correctly on some versions of Passenger or some Linux distributions.
With a reverse proxy¶
If you have an Apache webserver in front of it (with mod_proxy enabled), or an Apache reverse proxy on another machine, you can run Redmine on a specific port and use this kind of config so it appears to be running in a subdirectory :
ProxyPass /redmine http://real-redmine-server.localdomain:3000/ ProxyPassReverse /redmine http://real-redmine-server.localdomain:3000/See Apache official documentation to adapt it.
Old versions of Redmine and Rails¶
If you run a very old version of Redmine (don't know exactly which ones), maybe your version of Rails' ActionController does not support the "relative_url_root" mentionned above. Then you can look at this page to reproduce the same behaviour, but it is NOT a very good idea in most cases, you should consider upgrading Redmine.
