RedmineRepositories » History » Version 1
Note that you need to install the appropriate binaries on your Redmine host.
For exemple, if you want to access Subversion repositories in Redmine, you'll have to install the svn binaries on the Redmine host.
Attaching an existing repository to a project¶
In the project settings, make sure that the 'Repository' module is enabled and go to the 'Repository' tab.
Select the SCM that corresponds to your repository and enter the path or URL of your repository.
Important: When you first browse the repository, Redmine retreives the description of all of the existing commits and stores them in the database.
This is done only once per repository but can very long (or even time out) if your repository has hundreds of commits.
To avoid this, you can do it offline.
After having your repository declared in Redmine, run the following command:
ruby script/runner "Repository.fetch_changesets" -e production
All commits will be retrieved in the Redmine database.
Usual protocols are supported (eg.
file:), just enter the URL of the repository.
You can specify a username and password if the repository requires authentication.
Note: if you want to access the repository using
svn+ssh://, you'll have to configure svn+ssh to be non-interactive.
This requires to setup a public/private key pair for ssh authentication.
Enter the URL of the repository (it can be either a path or a conncetion string, eg.
:pserver) and the module name.
