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?

Here is how to uninstall plugin

If the plugin required a migration, run the following command to downgrade your database (make a db backup before):

bundle exec rake redmine:plugins:migrate NAME=plugin_name VERSION=0 RAILS_ENV=production

Remove your plugin from the plugins folder: #{RAILS_ROOT}/plugins

Restart Redmine
