HowTo keep Redmine in sync with Github without dedicated plugin (Apache CGI + Github Webhook)¶
This is a solution in case you don't want to install additional plugins just to keep repository synchronised. It requires you to have Apache webserver with access to repository you are trying to sync. Apache has to support running CGI scripts.
Prepare CGI script¶
Any script you run on your server will do. Below is an example of Bash script that pulls git repository and notifies Redmine to fetch changesets:
#!/bin/sh /usr/bin/git -C /var/lib/redmine/tv/repo/token_voting pull -n -q result1=$? /usr/bin/curl --max-time 60 -s 'https://tv.michalczyk.pro/sys/fetch_changesets?id=token-voting&key=2GkhmLmtTjKoXYf6PS9y' >/dev/null result2=$? if [[ $result1 && $result2 ]]; then echo "Status: 200 OK" else echo "Status: 500 Internal Server Error" fi echo "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8" echo if [[ $result1 ]]; then echo "git pull: ok" else echo "git pull: failed" fi if [[ $result2 ]]; then echo "fetch changesets: ok" else echo "fetch changesets: failed" fi
Let's say you save this script under: /var/www/localhost/cgi-bin/update-repo.cgi
Configure Apache to run script whenever particular URL is requested¶
VirtualHost of your choice just add:
... # Github webhook for repository pull/update ScriptAlias /update-repo.cgi /var/www/localhost/cgi-bin/update-repo.cgi <Directory /var/www/localhost/cgi-bin/> Options ExecCGI AllowOverride None Require all granted </Directory> ...
In case you use the same
VirtualHost to proxy requests to your Redmine
rails server, you should exclude your special URL from being proxied with:
ProxyPass /update-repo.cgi !
