How to make multiple Redmine instances work on the same server

Added by Hugo O 5 months ago

Hello Redmine Users,

We are currently trying to make multiple instances of Redmine work on the same server.
For now, we successfully setting up one instance of Redmine.

Multiple services of our enterprise want to use Redmine, with a Redmine administrator for each service but they cannot access/view projects of other services.

There is not a lot of documentation on this subject or it's obsolete and we can't find how to do it.
Does anybody have some advice please ?

Thank you.

I think the easiest would be to use Docker contenerization https://docs.docker.com/get-started/overview/. You can find the official redmine image here: : https://hub.docker.com/r/bitnami/redmine/

Anyway Redmine is a standard web application. So it's not so difficult to arrange apache2 to manage different instances, some years ago I had on same server different URLs responding for different Redmine installation folders. With the same pattern you could also use different environments (apache2 + phusion passenger)
Example.
https://your_redmine_server/production
https://your_redmine_server/staging
https://your_redmine_server/redmine_in_a_different_folder
