TurnKey Redmine - alternative to manual installation
I'm Liraz, one of the developers for TurnKey Linux, an open source project developing a free virtual appliance library that features the very best server-oriented open source software. TurnKey Linux appliances are ready-to-use solutions that get you up and running in minutes on a virtual machine, bare metal or in the cloud.
Our last release batch included TurnKey Redmine, which is a free open source virtual appliance that just works. It gets you up and running with Redmine in minutes on a virtual machine, bare metal or in the cloud.
- Secure and easy to maintain: auto-updated daily with security patches.
- Easy to use: includes a configuration console and web management interface.
- Lightweight: built from the ground up with the minimum required components.

For those who've never heard of our project, a little introduction may be helpful
The largest Linux distributions have over 23,000 packages which are free for both commercial and non-commercial uses, including updates. However, currently it can still take considerable skill and effort to cherry-pick the right components and glue them together into a compelling solution.
To help unlock this potential we started TurnKey Linux, an open source project developing a free virtual appliance library that features the very best open source software.
Plus, if we don't have just what you need appliances can easily be customized and extended using TKLPatch, a simple appliance modification mechanism that allows everyone to join in on the fun and satisfy the long tail of special needs. New appliances can quickly be built as patches to the closest starting point in the library.
It's easy because even our most basic appliance, TurnKey Core includes all of the standard features such as SSL support, AJAX web shell, and a rich web administration interface. In just 102MB!
