Our plugins are easy to install and do not change Redmine database data, but we recommend a full backup before installation. What is commonly done is just copy the 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.

Go to Redmine's root folder
Copy and unarchive plugin
cp redmine_reporter-x_x_x-pro.zip plugins/
Install required gems
bundle install --without development test --no-deployment
Migrate plugin's tables
bundle exec rake redmine:plugins NAME=redmine_reporter RAILS_ENV=production
