Running redmine on OpenBSD server

Added by Mike Clovis about 16 years ago

Hi all,
I am admittedly a novice ruby programmer, but an avid Redmine proponent! Having used Redmine for the last year in production, I would like to continue using it in the same manner, but with new start up company, we are using services of company that we do not have use all of the shell on OpenBSD server. We have checked out 0.7 branch and created database ,etc. Can not just launch webbrick. Was looking for any suggestions for best way to "host" redmine application (Mongrel, apache, etc???). On this shared shell system, we do have ways to accomplish certain ideas and any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance from all. I really do understand java based applications, and apache so deployment scenarios such as webservers, tomcat etc are easily understandable.
Again thanks.
