Easy Redmine Installation from scratch

This guide will show you how to install Redmine or Easy Redmine from scratch using Redmine Installer Gem. As ever you need to have proper software and hardware/server configuration.
A prerequisite for installing is to have a Redmine or Easy Redmine package downloaded on the server. This package is available in the client zone. If you do not know your login credentials to the client zone, contact us via web chat (right bottom corner icon) or reach us on our support contacts.
0) Before you start
Please make sure you have proper hardware and software server configuration as described here. Some more useful information:
  • The webserver must have FULL access to public, files, log, tmp folders => DO NOT RUN REDMINE INSTALLER UNDER ROOT!
  • Webrick web server is NOT supported
  • The installation does NOT set-up CRON automatically - you need to do it manually
  • For correct running of the Redmine installer, at least 250 MB is required free on the root disc
  • Server must have unrestricted internet connection, at least at the time of installation
There is also a detailed installation manual available directly in the package in doc/INSTALL
