Redmine Instalation On Centos 5 to 6

After more than a week and more than 100 times tried to install and configure redmine with centos 5.2, and almost stuck with it. Today my installation is finish and my redmine server is running fine. Below here I will tried to explain how I install redmine.
First :

  • Find tutorial, methode, userguide and problem in internet.
  • Download the depedency
  • Prepare the server
  • Let’s cook

Step 1

Find tutorial, methode, userguide and problem in internet. With google I found a lot tutorial but only a few of them that I used so, below here is my user guide:


I combine the first 3 tutorial that make my redmine work.

Step 2

I download the main depency frist is:



the first is ruby, then rubygem then the last is redmine. It doesn’t matter which version that you used but my suggestion is the leatest stable is perfect.

Step 3

Install the centos 5.2 on server and upload the main depency.  But I work in or you can downloaded as this tutorial.
