How to Install and Activate Plugins

Added by Tempes 2k over 9 years ago

Hi Redmine Admins!

We want to install this plugin called :
http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/PluginScreenshotPaste

I have never used or installed a plugin in redmine

I tried to find some hints or information how to install, i am not a expert in Linux. Just Basics.

In my redmine Adminstation -> Plugins ->
it show "no Plugins to show"

I copied the Redmine Plugin via ssh to this folder

/usr/share/redmine/vendor/plugins/redmine_screenshot_paste-1.1.0

What are the next steps ?
Do i have to Activate the Use of Plugins somewhere?
Do i have to "install" this Plugin via ssh ?
Is there Somewhere a description ?

Thanks for your help

First, strip off "-1.1.0".
Then follow the procedure at http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/Plugins

I think the Redmine root folder is appropriate for making migrations.
I'm sorry, I don't know Redmine & Ruby & Rails internals so I can tell nothing about the error.
You may remove your plugin and try to install another plugin. This way you could tell where is the problem: in Redmine or in your plugin...
About database backup... it never hurts to be done.
