Redmine plugins installation on Linux

Our plugins are easy to install and do not change Redmine database data. However, we recommend a full back up before the installation. In common case it is just copying unarchived plugin to your redmine/plugins/ folder. Some plugins, however, may require specific Ruby gems or/and database tables.

Below you will find common steps for any plugin installation (all commands should be executed from redmine app root folder ex. /var/www/redmine, that folder contains config.ru file)

Go to Redmine's root folder

cd /var/www/redmine

Copy and unarchive plugin

cp [plugin_name]-4_0_0-pro.zip plugins/
cd plugins
unzip [plugin_name]-4_0_0-pro.zip

Install required gems

cd /var/www/redmine
bundle install --without development test --no-deployment

Migrate plugin's tables

bundle exec rake redmine:plugins NAME=[plugin_name] RAILS_ENV=production

Restart Redmine app

For Phussion Passenger just touch restart.txt file

touch tmp/restart.txt
