Update Problems

Added by Ansgar Helfrich about 9 years ago

Hi all,

I would like to update redmine from version 1.4 to 2.0.1.
At first I looked at:
and learned that I need "Rails 3.2.3"
So I tried to update ruby:
1.) I installed 'rvm'. As a result I have the "rvm-command" I can work with.
  1. rvm -v

rvm 1.14.1 (stable) by Wayne E. Seguin <>, Michal Papis <> [https://rvm.io/]

  1. rvm list known
  2. MRI Rubies
    ... #
    then I installed ruby 1.9.3

rvm install 1.9.3

Having installed ruby 1.9.3 , I could not start redmine anymore with:

ruby script/server webrick -e production &

Somewhere I've read, that there are issues with ruby 1.9 so I
tried to downgrade ruby:

rvm uninstall 1.9.3
rvm install 1.8.7

-> I have 2 probs:
1.) I cannot upgrade again to ruby 1.9. Even if the command rvm install 1.9.3
runs succesfully, "ruby -v" has no response. I can only stop the command
with Control-c.

2.)I cannot start ruby

Can you give me advice to get redmine and ruby running ? Is it possible to run redmine with
ruby 1.9.3 ? If so what do I have to consider?

first of all I think I have to recover ruby-command

Please excuse my chaotic style. I really need some basic help.

Looking forward to your answer.

Installing rubygems-1.8.24 for ruby-1.9.3-p194

Hello, I think your rubygems version is too high for redmine and rails version is too old

2.0.0, 2.0.1 ---> ruby 1.8.7, 1.9.2, 1.9.3, jruby-1.6.7 ---> rails 3.2.3 ---> RubyGems <= 1.8

And with ruby-1.9.3 and rails 3.2.3 you can't booting webrick with this syntaxe:

ruby script/server webrick -e production &

But you should use --> ruby script/rails server webrick -e production

I've installed ruby-1.9.3 without RVM but since the source tarball, you should installed the libyaml librairies, and re install bundler and all delegate gems.

Sorry for my english :p

Hi Nabil,

thank you very much for your information. Meanwhile I was
able to upgrade. It all hinged on the rails-Version. So you were right ...

My problem now is that I don't how to use the "Advanced Roadmap"
in the 2.0.2 version. According to what I have read it's still
in development.

Thanks for your targeted help!
