Redmine is an open-source cloud-based project management solution based on the Ruby on Rails programming framework. It is a cross-platform and cross-database solution and allows users to manage multiple projects within the system. Administrators can allocate each user to have different roles on each project. The issue management system allows users to define the status of each issue and they can set the priority on a need basis. Other features include Gantt charts, a calendar, time tracking functionality and feeds and email notifications and also self-registration support.
If you think that Redmine is the right option for you and you want to save time with the deployment process let’s see how Bunnyshell can help. We created a step-by-step tutorial to help you deploy Redmine in AWS.
How to deploy Redmine in AWS with Bunnyshell:
Step 1: Log into Bunnyshell and open the Dashboard. Take a look at the easy-to-use interface. You will see, on the left part of the screen, the main menu. Now you should be able to see environments (company projects like production, management), resources, and one-click apps (apps like Magento, GitLab, WordPress that are optimized and ready to deploy).
Step 2: Look for RESOURCES and click on One-Click Apps.
Step 3: Once you got to the One-Click Apps, all you have to do is select the one you need. If you can’t find it, feel free to use the search bar. Click on Redmine, and you will be redirected to its page.
Step 4: Check out the key features of the app and read the info and the requirements. Once you are done, launch the app in the cloud.
Step 5: Now you will have to fill in the required info. Give your app a name, choose a location, a virtual network, and a server size.
Step 6: Next, you need to look at the bottom of the page. There you will find the package secrets where you can add a root password for MySQL. If you don’t want to, a password will be generated. There you can also see the package requirements for Redmine which are MySQL and Apache.
Step 7: You can modify and add the required info for Apache and MySQL. If you don’t add it, the apps will be configured with the info that was preset.
Step 8: Once you are done, all you have to do is to click on DEPLOY. Then you will be redirected to a page where you can see that Redmine is deploying. You can click on View logs to see how the app is deployed.
