This guide is for those who have Redmine installed on Bitnami for Linux. The guide instructs you how to upgrade your Redmine to Easy Redmine.

0) Before you start

  • Please take into consideration that Bitnami package changes with each version of Redmine therefore something may work differently
  • This guide was last tested on the following version: bitnami redmine 2.5.1-1
  • Please note that some Operating Systems may have problems with Bitnami
  • Bitnami is generally not recommended for Easy Redmine, because it changes the Redmine code, while Easy requires the standard form
  • We do not provide any guarantee for running Easy Redmine in Bitnami. However, we can provide support for migration into a standardized environment (preinstalled VMware image), more information here
