HowTo Install Redmine 2.5.x on Fedora 20

System Requirements

No assumptions are made about the initial state of the system in this guide. The guide can be followed for either 32-bit or 64-bit systems - though all testing and the original installation was performed on a 64-bit system.

The hardware requirements are not significant, so a small VM with 10gb storage and 1GB ram and 1GB swap file should be sufficient.

This guide can be used on top of an already existing system or, from scratch, downloading from the Fedora website.

An ISO for installation can be downloaded from here.

The rest of the guide assumes that you have created a user account with wheel/administrator access and are logged in to the terminal directly or through SSH.

Updating the System

Before beginning, you should ensure all of your installed packages are up-to-date. This can be done by issuing the following command:

$ sudo yum update

If the kernel was updated as part of this command, you should perform a restart to begin using it:

$ sudo shutdown -r now
