Installing plugins on Redmine on Ubuntu 14.04 (DigitalOcean image)

August 20, 2014 13.1k views

I want to install plugins like scrum2b or backlogs on my Redmine instance, but when I follow these plugins tutorials for installation (bundle exec rake… to be exactly), something broke Redmine and I stop having access to it.

So, two questions:
1 - Redmine installation is in /srv/redmine?
2 - Any help about it?

Thanks (:

Check out the documentation on the Redmine wiki. For instance, to install scrum2b you would run:

cd /srv/redmine/plugins/
git clone
bundle install
bundle exec rake redmine:plugins:migrate RAILS_ENV=production
service nginx restart
  • I have installed a plugin this way and then ran service nginx restart and now when I go to my server I get a message:
    We’re sorry, but something went wrong.

    We’ve been notified about this issue and we’ll take a look at it shortly.
