HOW TO INSTALL REDMINE ON UBUNTU 16.04

 In Dedicated, VPS, Web

1. UPDATE THE SYSTEM AND INSTALL NECESSARY PACKAGES

sudo apt update
sudo apt install curl subversion libmysqlclient-dev libmagickcore-dev libmagickwand-dev imagemagick g++, zlib1g-dev, libyaml-dev, libsqlite3-dev, sqlite3, autoconf, libgmp-dev, libgdbm-dev, libncurses5-dev, automake, libtool, bison, pkg-config, libffi-dev, libgmp-dev, libreadline6-dev, libssl-dev

2. INSTALL MYSQL AND CREATE DATABASE

To install the MySQL package, run:

sudo apt install mysql-server

When the installation is complete, run the following command to secure your installation:

mysql_secure_installation

Next, we need to create a database for our Redmine installation:

mysql -uroot -p
MariaDB [(none)]> CREATE DATABASE redmine CHARACTER SET utf8;
MariaDB [(none)]> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON redmine.* TO 'redmine'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'redmine_passwd';
MariaDB [(none)]> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
MariaDB [(none)]> \q

3. CREATE NEW SYSTEM USER

Create a new system user for Redmine.

sudo adduser --home /opt/redmine --shell /bin/bash --gecos 'Redmine application' redmine
usermod -aG sudo redmine

Switch to the new redmine user:

sudo su - redmine

4. INSTALL RUBY USING RVM

curl -sSL https://rvm.io/mpapis.asc | gpg --import -
curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby

To start using RVM run the following commands:

source ~/.rvm/scripts/rvm
rvm --default use ruby

To verify everything is done correctly, use the command ruby –version.
The output should be similar to the following:

ruby --version
ruby 2.4.1p111 (2017-03-22 revision 58053) [x86_64-linux]

5. INSTALL REDMINE

Issue the following commands to checkout the Redmine source code to the $HOME/redmine directory and create the necessary directories.

cd && svn co http://svn.redmine.org/redmine/branches/3.4-stable redmine
mkdir -p ./redmine/tmp/pids ./redmine/public/plugin_assets

Configure database settings:

cp ./redmine/config/configuration.yml.example ./redmine/config/configuration.yml
cp ./redmine/config/database.yml.example ./redmine/config/database.yml

Open the database.yml file and update username/password

nano ./redmine/config/database.yml
production:
  adapter: mysql2
  database: redmine
  host: localhost
  username: redmine
  password: "redmine_passwd"
  encoding: utf8

6. INSTALL GEMS

cd /opt/redmine/redmine
echo "gem 'puma'" >> Gemfile.local
echo "gem: --no-ri --no-rdoc" >> ~/.gemrc 
gem install bundler
bundle install --without development test postgresql sqlite

7. PREPARE THE DATABASE

rake generate_secret_token
RAILS_ENV=production rake db:migrate
RAILS_ENV=production REDMINE_LANG=en rake redmine:load_default_data

8. PUMA CONFIGURATION

Create a new configuration file as follows:

nano ~/redmine/config/puma.rb
#!/usr/bin/env puma

application_path = '/opt/redmine/redmine'
directory application_path
environment 'production'
daemonize true
pidfile "#{application_path}/tmp/pids/puma.pid"
state_path "#{application_path}/tmp/pids/puma.state"
stdout_redirect "#{application_path}/log/puma.stdout.log", "#{application_path}/log/puma.stderr.log"
bind "tcp://0.0.0.0:9000"

9. START PUMA

Start the puma server using the following command :

cd /opt/redmine/redmine/ && bundle exec puma --config config/puma.rb

The output should be similar to the following:

Puma starting in single mode...
* Version 3.11.3 (ruby 2.4.1-p111), codename: Love Song
* Min threads: 0, max threads: 16
* Environment: production
* Daemonizing...

Finally your can start your browser and access your new Redmine installation at: http://IP_ADDRESS:9000

That’s it. You have successfully installed Redmine on your Ubuntu. For more information about Redmine, please refer to the Redmine website.
