Redmine App

Installing plugins

To install plugins in redmine, simply extract them to /app/data/plugins and run the db migration.

  • Open a web terminal for the app.
  • Upload the plugin .zip (if any) to /tmp using the upload button and extract the plugin to /app/data/plugins
# unzip /tmp/ -d /app/data/plugins
  • Some plugins require gems to be installed but for some reason do not have source '' at the start of the Gemfile. If it is missing, add the line to the top of Gemfile
cd /app/data/plugins/redmine_contacts
vi Gemfile                  # ensure first line is "source ''"
bundle install              # this installs gems into /app/data/bundle/vendor
  • Initialize the database of the plugin
# cd /app/code
# bundle exec rake redmine:plugins NAME=redmine_checklists RAILS_ENV=production
  • Restart redmine using the restart button
