Want to import your Redmine data into cloud Easy Redmine?

Before any migration can take place:

All third party plugins must be uninstalled AND unmigrated from your Redmine. Just removing the plugin folder and restarting Redmine is insufficient, because the data structure is still modified.
Also, you need to remove all your own modifications from Redmine for the data to be importable. Easy Redmine requires Redmine to be in standard unmodified form.

How to prepare data for Easy Redmine Cloud:

  1. MySQLdump of your Redmine
    1. Easy Redmine in cloud supports only mysql DB
    2. Whole DB and all fields has to be in UTF-8 coding page (utf8_general_ci)
    3. Command: $ mysqldump redmine --compact | gzip > redmine_dump.sql.gz
  2. Files
    1. We need to get folder files, and its data
    2. $ tar -czf redmine_files.tar.gz [redmine_root]/files

Importing a database dump to Easy Redmine always completely replaces the previous data on that site, therefore it is not possible to import the data again and keeping the "old"/"common" data on the site. In other words, once you imported the data in Easy Redmine, do not use both sites on production simultaniously, if you intend to make another import.

Old Redmine versions (lower than 3.x) need to be upgraded to Redmine 3.3.3. In general, older versions require additional steps which need to be consulted with support and may incur additional costs for migration services.

Software (server)

Easy Redmine works on UNIX and Linux platforms (we recommend Debian distribution).

Easy Redmine does NOT run on Microsoft SQL Server.
It is also possible to provide a complete virtual machine - VMWare, so you don't need to worry about this configuration at all.

More detailed information are in installation instructions.

Software (client)

Other browsers were not tested extensively, but they are likely to work just as well as the above mentioned ones.

Internet connection

Connection from the user to the server where Easy Redmine is located must be at least 10 Mbit. You need to take into account the whole route from the user to the server, so with geographically distant locations, the response of the server may take a longer time, regardless of the user's declared internet connection from their provider. The bandwidth of the server is also a factor, of course.


Hardware and software requirements for large implementations?

If you consider using Easy Redmine as your main information system for a large number of users, we recomnmend to deploy a High-Availability cluster to make sure the system will always be running.
