I'm looking to download and experiment with the Turnkey Redmine appliance.  Can someone please advise whether I'd be able to install Redmine plugins onto the device and if so how?  All help gratefully received!

Plug ins

Sure - it works fine to install plug-in's - other than check compatibility first

Nav to your railsapp/vendor/plugins and download the plugin then rack the db to update

I would advise backing up the db before each plugin install

Download straight from GitHub worked for us best - i.e.

git clone git://github.com/user_name/name_of_the_plugin.git

then - if needed 


rake db:migrate:plugins RAILS_ENV=production

Rake from Amazon Webadmin

How do you execute rake from the Amazon Webadmin Command Shell?  It keeps saying rake does not exist and it does not allow you to cd to any particular directory.

Trying to instakll this plugin:
> gem install -v=2.0.6 acts-as-taggable-on
Successfully installed acts-as-taggable-on-2.0.6
1 gem installed
Installing ri documentation for acts-as-taggable-on-2.0.6...
Installing RDoc documentation for acts-as-taggable-on-2.0.6...
> gem install -v=0.695 vpim
Successfully installed vpim-0.695
1 gem installed
Installing ri documentation for vpim-0.695...
Installing RDoc documentation for vpim-0.695...
> rake db:migrate_plugins RAILS_ENV=production
rake aborted!
No Rakefile found (looking for: rakefile, Rakefile, rakefile.rb, Rakefile.rb)

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

What plugin version are you

What plugin version are you trying to install? And what is your redmine version?

You should run rake command from redmine app directory or use full path like this :

 for redmine < 2

 rake -f /var/data/redmine/Rakefile db:migrate_plugins RAILS_ENV=production

 for redmine 2+ 

 rake -f /var/data/redmine/Rakefile redmine:plugins RAILS_ENV=production
