Installing Redmine onto an existing web server

Added by Harry Devine over 1 year ago

We have an existing web server that we'd like to host Redmine on. We previously had it working on a test server where Redmine was the only application on it. I know that Redmine is running as we have the service installed as per the install instructions and no errors are seen. We are following the HowTo found here:

We have a redmine.conf in /etc/httpd/conf.d configured as follows:
<Proxy *>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all

ProxyRequests Off
ProxyPass /redmine/

Port 3000 is opened on the firewall:
public (active)
target: default
icmp-block-inversion: no
interfaces: eth0
services: http ssh https mysql
ports: 3000/tcp
masquerade: no
rich rules:

When we try to go to the server,, we get the following error:
This site can’t be reached
example.comlogin’s server IP address could not be found.
The URL in the address bar is: https://example.comlogin/?

So, the question is: how do we make this work? I feel we're really close, but would really like to find out what we're missing.

That's probably not helping but I add my 2 cents: sub domain installs ( are much easier than sub-URI installs (
If I were you, I'd go for sub domain install, config is much simpler and more documented.
