This works with CentOS versions 5 and 6 and describes how to get Redmine 1.3.2 set up.

h3. Untar
37 1 Stephan Schuberth

h3. Install
41 1 Stephan Schuberth
42 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>cd ruby-1.8.7.pXXX
43 1 Stephan Schuberth
./configure
44 1 Stephan Schuberth
make
45 1 Stephan Schuberth
make install</pre>
46 1 Stephan Schuberth
47 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Check installation
48 1 Stephan Schuberth
49 1 Stephan Schuberth
If this does not work, it is probably because there is no ruby at /usr/bin to be found. 
50 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>ruby -v</pre>
51 22 Stephan Schuberth
If it works, skip directly to "RubyGems 1.4.2".
52 22 Stephan Schuberth
53 1 Stephan Schuberth
54 6 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Fix dependencies
55 1 Stephan Schuberth
56 1 Stephan Schuberth
(Only in case _ruby -v_ is *NOT* working)
57 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>which ruby  # TO CHECK WHERE IT SHOULD BE
58 1 Stephan Schuberth
whereis ruby  # TO CHECK WHERE IT IS INSTALLED</pre>
59 1 Stephan Schuberth
_which_ returns like /usr/bin/ along with other directories (where ruby is expected to be), and _whereis_ returns like /usr/local/bin/ruby (thats where ruby actually lies).
60 1 Stephan Schuberth
61 6 Stephan Schuberth
h4. Fix via adding /usr/local/bin to $PATH
62 6 Stephan Schuberth
63 9 Stephan Schuberth
(Do this with your editor of choice, if you do not like nano.)
64 6 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>nano /etc/profile</pre>
65 6 Stephan Schuberth
66 6 Stephan Schuberth
Make the section with _pathmunge_ look alike like this:
67 6 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>#Path manupulation
68 6 Stephan Schuberth
if [ "$EUID" = "0" ]; then
69 6 Stephan Schuberth
    pathmunge /sbin
70 6 Stephan Schuberth
    pathmunge /usr/sbin
71 6 Stephan Schuberth
    pathmunge /usr/local/sbin
72 6 Stephan Schuberth
    pathmunge /usr/local/bin  # ADDED THIS
73 6 Stephan Schuberth
else
74 6 Stephan Schuberth
    pathmunge /usr/local/bin after  # ADDED THIS
75 6 Stephan Schuberth
    pathmunge /usr/local/sbin after
76 6 Stephan Schuberth
    pathmunge /usr/sbin after
77 6 Stephan Schuberth
    pathmunge /sbin
78 6 Stephan Schuberth
fi</pre>
79 6 Stephan Schuberth
80 6 Stephan Schuberth
OR ADD THIS AT THE END OF THE FILE:
81 6 Stephan Schuberth
82 6 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>nano /etc/profile
83 6 Stephan Schuberth
export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/bin"</pre>
84 6 Stephan Schuberth
85 15 Stephan Schuberth
This sets the PATH for all Users beside root. For this setup you want to change the PATH for root, too:
86 6 Stephan Schuberth
87 6 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>nano ~/.bashrc
88 1 Stephan Schuberth
export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/bin"</pre>
89 15 Stephan Schuberth
90 15 Stephan Schuberth
Logout your user and login again, to make the changes work.
91 6 Stephan Schuberth
92 6 Stephan Schuberth
h4. Fix via Symlink Creation 
93 6 Stephan Schuberth
94 7 Stephan Schuberth
This is not recommended, since if the ruby dependency is broken, others will likely be later on, too. Repair this by adding the folder to the $PATH variable like described before, else _gem_, _rake_, _bundle_, _passenger-install-apache2-module_ will not work either... you would have to creat symlinks for them, too.
95 6 Stephan Schuberth
Symlinks are created like this
96 6 Stephan Schuberth
97 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>ln -s /usr/local/bin/ruby /usr/bin/ruby</pre>
98 6 Stephan Schuberth
99 8 Stephan Schuberth
h4. Verify ruby to be working
100 6 Stephan Schuberth
101 16 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>which ruby  # MUST RETURN PATH TO RUBY
102 16 Stephan Schuberth
ruby -v  # MUST RETURN RUBY VERSION
103 1 Stephan Schuberth
cd ..</pre>
104 16 Stephan Schuberth
105 19 Stephan Schuberth
Now it has to work. When changing $PATH variable, did you log out and log on again with your current user?
106 18 Stephan Schuberth
If this does not function properly, other things later on will also not work.
107 1 Stephan Schuberth
108 1 Stephan Schuberth
h2. RubyGems 1.4.2 
109 1 Stephan Schuberth
110 1 Stephan Schuberth

132 1 Stephan Schuberth

h2. Passenger
134 1 Stephan Schuberth
135 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Regular install method
136 1 Stephan Schuberth
137 23 Stephan Schuberth
Requires C++ compiler to complete.
138 23 Stephan Schuberth
But if it cannot be found in the system, the commands how to install it will be shown later on.
139 1 Stephan Schuberth
140 1 Stephan Schuberth

146 1 Stephan Schuberth
147 1 Stephan Schuberth
Install mod_passenger RPM for Apache from the following location:
148 1 Stephan Schuberth
149 1 Stephan Schuberth
> http://passenger.stealthymonkeys.com/
150 1 Stephan Schuberth
151 1 Stephan Schuberth
_RHEL/CentOS 5_
152 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>rpm -Uvh http://passenger.stealthymonkeys.com/rhel/5/passenger-release.noarch.rpm

175 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>tar zxvf redmine-1.3.2.tar.gz</pre>
176 1 Stephan Schuberth

h3. Copy the folder to its HTTP document root folder
178 1 Stephan Schuberth
179 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>mkdir /var/www/redmine
180 1 Stephan Schuberth
cp -av redmine-1.3.2/* /var/www/redmine</pre>
181 1 Stephan Schuberth
182 13 Stephan Schuberth
h1. Link Redmine to the Database
183 13 Stephan Schuberth
184 13 Stephan Schuberth
h2. Install MySQL DB Server
185 13 Stephan Schuberth
186 13 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>yum install mysql-server
187 13 Stephan Schuberth
chkconfig mysqld on
188 13 Stephan Schuberth
service mysqld start
189 13 Stephan Schuberth
/usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation</pre>
190 13 Stephan Schuberth
191 13 Stephan Schuberth
h2. Create a MySQL database to use with Redmine
192 13 Stephan Schuberth
193 25 Stephan Schuberth
Start the mysql client (@mysql -u root -p@), the version you have is shown in the welcome message.
194 25 Stephan Schuberth
Enter the following commands:
195 25 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>create database redmine character set utf8;</pre>
196 25 Stephan Schuberth
197 13 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Latest MySQL Version
198 13 Stephan Schuberth
199 25 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>create user 'redmine'@'localhost' identified by 'my_password';
200 1 Stephan Schuberth
grant all privileges on redmine.* to 'redmine'@'localhost';
201 1 Stephan Schuberth
\q</pre>
202 1 Stephan Schuberth
203 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. For versions of MySQL prior to 5.0.2
204 1 Stephan Schuberth
205 25 Stephan Schuberth
Skip the 'create user' step and do instead:
206 26 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>grant all privileges on redmine.* to 'redmine'@'localhost' identified by 'my_password';
207 25 Stephan Schuberth
\q</pre>
208 13 Stephan Schuberth
209 25 Stephan Schuberth
Now the database and a user to be used with it is created. Also the user has the rights to work on the database that was created.
210 13 Stephan Schuberth
211 25 Stephan Schuberth
h2. Configure database.yml 
212 13 Stephan Schuberth
213 29 Stephan Schuberth
There you have to enter the user:password combination (redmine:my_password) in the config file, so Redmine can actually talk to the database (redmine).
214 25 Stephan Schuberth
215 27 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>cd /var/www/redmine/config
216 28 Stephan Schuberth
cp database.yml.example database.yml
217 28 Stephan Schuberth
nano database.yml</pre>
218 1 Stephan Schuberth
219 27 Stephan Schuberth
Change it to look like:
220 27 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>production:
221 27 Stephan Schuberth
    adapter: mysql
222 27 Stephan Schuberth
    database: redmine
223 27 Stephan Schuberth
    host: localhost
224 27 Stephan Schuberth
    username: redmine
225 27 Stephan Schuberth
    password: my_password
226 27 Stephan Schuberth
    encoding: utf8</pre>
227 27 Stephan Schuberth
228 31 Stephan Schuberth
The other entries are not important, since we will use only the production environment. But if you would need the development or test environment, don't forget the create additional databases. *Don't* use the same database for production and testing or development environment!

h2. Set environment to "production" 
264 12 Stephan Schuberth
265 12 Stephan Schuberth
Rails has the concept of environments to represent the stages of an application’s lifecycle: test, development, and production by default. 
266 12 Stephan Schuberth
Specify your choice with the RAILS_ENV environment variable. 
267 12 Stephan Schuberth
Production has less verbose logging and is a bit faster, testing and development environment are not needed anyway for your Redmine.
268 12 Stephan Schuberth
269 12 Stephan Schuberth
Uncomment the following line in file redmine/config/environment.rb:
