Question regards configuring http server and redmine

Added by Peter Horvath 3 months ago


So I've installed redmine using the redmine user and its home directory is /opt/redmine. he is required user to run the system properly if I understand it right and he requires to have access to the folder recursively. Am I correct?

Now all installation of web servers want to use chow and take away the ownership of the recursive folder structur and give it to www-data. But that breaks the whole setup and redmine can only be write data there with sudo access. However that will break redmine's home folder structure.

So I'm confused as how to set up nginx properly, not taking away permissions but couldn't find a proper guide with site setup explanation (unlike the current install guides that drastically destroys permissions).

Let me know if I misunderstand something and ... how to move forward with this crucial installation.
