How to request help

Added by Thomas Lecavelier about 16 years ago

Welcome in Redmine help forum.

Feel free to open a new topic when you're lost in the beautiful world of Redmine.

But before rushing on the "new topic" button, please consider these points:

  • Search if your problem was not already discuss here
  • Search if your problem has not already an entry in the HowTos section
  • Search if your problem has not already an answer in the FAQ

If you still need help, consider creating a new topic, following these recommandations:

  • Put a clear and descriptive topic. "HELPPPPPPPPP!!!!" is not descriptive. It's foolish.
  • Before explaining your problem, please add the following informations:
    - Ruby implementation and version
    - Rails version (rails --version)
    - Operating system (precise if you're using cygwin when running on Windows)
    - Database used, and its version
    - Ruby-aware server used: Webrick, Mongrel, Thin, etc. If you don't understand this point, you're using Webrick.

Don't forget to precise where you're meeting your problem in the application (creating an issue, adding a project, etc.)

Thank you.
