Things after *#* are comments, and it is no use to type this stuff in ;)
cd ~/Downloads # YOUR FOLDER OF CHOICE ftp ftp.ruby-lang.org
ftp> Anonymous # USERLOGIN ftp> 'none', just hit Enter # NO PASSWORD ftp> cd /pub/ruby ftp> get ruby-1.8.7.pXXX.tar.gz # XXX is currently 358, as of 03/2012 ftp> bye
tar zxvf ruby-1.8.7.pXXX.tar.gz
cd ruby-1.8.7.pXXX ./configure make make install
If this does not work, it is probably because there is no ruby at /usr/bin to be found.
If it works, skip directly to "Get Gems 1.4.2".
Fix dependencies with a symlink¶
(Only in case ruby -v is NOT working)
which ruby # TO CHECK WHERE IT SHOULD BE whereis ruby # TO CHECK WHERE IT IS INSTALLED
which returns like /usr/bin/ along with other directories (where ruby is expected to be), and whereis returns like /usr/local/bin/ruby (thats where ruby actually lies).
Create the Link:
ln -s /usr/local/bin/ruby /usr/bin/ruby
Check again if it is working:
ruby -v # NOW IT MUST RETURN RUBY VERSION, ELSE SOMETHING ELSE IS BROKEN cd ..
Does not work with Gems 1.5!
tar zxvf rubygems-1.4.2.tgz
cd rubygems-1.4.2 ruby setup.rb
In case this does not work...¶
... the solution is again creating a symlink, analogical like described in the ruby section above.
Regular install method¶
gem install passenger passenger-install-apache2-module
If the second line does not work, do whereis passenger to find out where it is installed.
So you can execute it like /usr/local/bin/passenger-install-apache2-module ...
The install process is interactive and you wil be told what to do. READ!
Alternative install method¶
Install mod_passenger RPM for Apache from the following location:
rpm -Uvh http://passenger.stealthymonkeys.com/rhel/5/passenger-release.noarch.rpm yum install mod_passenger
rpm --import http://passenger.stealthymonkeys.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-stealthymonkeys.asc yum install http://passenger.stealthymonkeys.com/rhel/6/passenger-release.noarch.rpm yum install mod_passenger
service httpd restart

wget http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/75910/redmine-1.3.2.tar.gz # GET LATEST VERSION ON RUBYFORGE
tar zxvf redmine-1.3.2.tar.gz
Copy the folder to its HTTP document root folder¶
cp -av redmine-1.3.0/* /var/www/redmine
Configure Apache to host the documents¶
more information can be found here: HowTo configure Apache to run Redmine
Install Bundler and manage dependencies¶
gem install bundler
Add the Bundler Boot and preinitializer code¶
For more info go to the Bundler site.
Create the Gemfile and register these gems in it¶
# file: /var/www/redmine/Gemfile source "http://rubygems.org" gem "rake", "0.8.3" gem "rack", "1.1.0" gem "i18n", "0.4.2" gem "rubytree", "0.5.2", :require => "tree" gem "RedCloth", "~>4.2.3", :require => "redcloth" # for CodeRay gem "mysql" gem "coderay", "~>0.9.7"
Link MySQL DB to Redmine¶
Create the Redmine MySQL database¶
yum install mysql-server chkconfig mysqld on service mysqld start /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation
Latest MySQL Version¶
start the mysql client (
mysql -u root -p) and enter the following commands:create database redmine character set utf8; create user 'redmine'@'localhost' identified by 'my_password'; grant all privileges on redmine.* to 'redmine'@'localhost';
For versions of MySQL prior to 5.0.2¶
Skip the 'create user' step and instead:grant all privileges on redmine.* to 'redmine'@'localhost' identified by 'my_password';
Now MySQL user and rights should be set.
cp database.yml.example database.yml
todo: describe what to change there...
Set the production environment (optional)¶
Uncomment the following line in file redmine/config/environment.rb:
ENV['RAILS_ENV'] ||= 'production'
Generate the session store¶
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake generate_session_store
Migrate the database models¶
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake db:migrate
Load default data (optional)¶
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake redmine:load_default_data
Rename dispatch CGI files in /var/www/redmine/public/¶
mv dispatch.cgi.example dispatch.cgi mv dispatch.fcgi.example dispatch.fcgi mv dispatch.rb.example dispatch.rb
Edit .htaccess file for CGI dispatch configuration¶
mv htaccess.fcgi.example .htaccess
Fix rights for the apache user¶
cd .. chown -R apache:apache redmine-1.x chmod -R 755 redmine-1.x
This should be everything.
Redmine is now installed and usable.
