Here are installation plugin steps:

  • Do not forget to make a backup of all Redmine database (for MySQL - mysqldump -uroot redmine > ~/redmine_database.sql)
  • Unarchive the plugin to ./plugins folder
  • Go to Redmine root folder cd $REDMINE_ROOT
  • Install required gems bundle install --without development test
  • Migrate database tables - bundle exec rake redmine:plugins:migrate RAILS_ENV=production

What about upgrading plugin to a new version?
