About this guide

This is a step-by-step guide to install redmine on "Debian stable" (called Wheezy at the moment of writing).
It is written for people who are familiar with Debian, the shell, MySQL, Apache and Linux in general.
To keep this guide short, it does not explain every step in detail.

The versions, filenames and paths in this document are subject to frequent change. I'll do my best to keep them up-to-date, but please check anyway.

Please note: I'm assuming that you know how to use the tools at hand. If that's not the case (eg. you don't know how to create a new database or you don't know how to restart apache) please use the search engine of your choice and come back afterwards.
