A Shell Script to Setup Redmine on Fedora Linux

The steps to install and configure Redmine on Fedora Linux 20 are quite lengthy. To simplify the installation and configuration of the Redmine and the Fedora Linux system, I created a shell script to automate the process. The script is available at GitHub.

Below is a typical use case of the script.

# bring Fedora Linux up-to-date
sudo yum -y update

# download instredmine.sh
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/graychan/notes/master/redmine/instredmine.sh

# choose database password by editing the script
# vi instredmine.sh

# make the script executable and run the script
chmod +x ./instredmine.sh
sudo ./instredmine.sh

# allow incoming connections to TCP port 80 through firewall
sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port 80/tcp 
sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port 80/tcp
Then, point a browser to the Redmine host. Log in as admin with the initial password admin, and change the admin user's password to a different one.
