Bitnami Redmine Module
Bitnami Redmine Module is a free and multi-platform software project, a module that can be used on top of a Bitnami LAMP, MAMP or WAMP stack, specially designed for the Redmine application, without having to worry about its runtime dependencies.
What is Redmine?
Redmine is a flexible project management web application. Written using Ruby on Rails framework, it is cross-platform and cross-database. BitNami’s native installers automate the setup of a BitNami application stack on Linux and Microsoft Windows platforms, running on 32-bit and 64-bit (recommended) computers.
Installing Bitnami Redmine Module
To install the Redmine module on your Bitnami LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) Stack, Bitnami WAMP (Windows, Apache, MySQL and PHP) Stack or Bitnami MAMP (Mac, Apache, MySQL and PHP) Stack, you will have to download the package that corresponds to your PC’s hardware architecture (64-bit or 32-bit), run it and follow the instructions displayed on the screen.
Run Redmine in the cloud or virtualize it
Thanks to Bitnami, it is possible to run the Redmine application in the cloud with your own hosting platform or by using a pre-built cloud image for the Windows Azure and Amazon EC2 cloud hosting providers.
In addition, you will be able to virtualize Redmine, simply by using Bitnami’s virtual appliance based on the latest LTS (Long Term Support) release of the Ubuntu Linux distribution and designed for the VMware ESX, ESXi and Oracle VirtualBox virtualization software.
The Bitnami Redmine Stack and Docker container
Besides the Bitnami Redmine Module product reviewed here, you can also download Bitnami Redmine Stack, which greatly simplifies the installation and hosting of the Redmine application and its runtime dependencies on desktop computers and laptops. Additionally, Bitnami will offer a Redmine Docker container, which can be downloaded for free from the project’s website (see link below for details).
