Installing Redmine Tags plugin on Linux

Our plugins are easy to install and do not change Redmine database data. However, we recommend a full backup before the installation. In common cases, it is just copying an 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 file)

Go to Redmine's root folder

cd /var/www/redmine

Copy and unarchive plugin

cp redmine_tags-[version] plugins/
cd plugins
unzip redmine_tags-[version]

Install required gems

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

Migrate plugin's tables

bundle exec rake redmine:plugins NAME=redmineup_tags RAILS_ENV=production

Restart Redmine app

For Phusion Passenger just touch restart.txt file

touch tmp/restart.txt

Note: By default, on a fresh plugin installation, only the Administrator has permissions to create and edit tags. So if you want other users to be able to, the admin should go to Administration (on top) -> Roles and permissions -> [select the respective user role]. Scroll down to Issue tracking section and make sure Create new tags and Edit tags are enabled.
