Install the Agile plugin

To manually install the Redmine Agile plugin (free registration is required). It is strongly recommended to create a backup first. Once your backup is done, follow these steps:

  • Save the .zip file in the /opt/bitnami/apps/redmine/htdocs/plugins directory. Make sure that you are in that directory before unzip the plugin:

    $ cd /opt/bitnami/apps/redmine/htdocs/plugins
  • Unzip the Agile plugin file (VERSION-EDITION is a placeholder. Your file should contains the version you have downloaded and the selected edition):

    $ unzip
  • Remove the “.zip” file:

    $ rm
  • Change to the htdocs directory and install required gems:

    $ cd /opt/bitnami/apps/redmine/htdocs/
    $ bundle install --without development test postgresql sqlite --no-deployment
    $ bundle install --without development test postgresql sqlite --deployment
  • Install and migrate the Redmine Agile database:

    $ bundle exec rake redmine:plugins RAILS_ENV=production
    $ bundle exec rake redmine:plugins NAME=redmine_agile RAILS_ENV=production

    NOTE: It could display a warning message about the log production file. In that case, run the following commands:

    $ sudo chown :bitnami log/production.log
    $ sudo chmod g+w log/production.log
  • Restart services for the changes to take effect:

    $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart
  • Sign in to your Redmine installation and navigate to the “Administration -> Agile” section to configure the new plugin.

  • Navigate to the “Projects -> PROJECT -> Settings -> Modules” menu to enable the Agile plugin in your project.
