Another day, another System Administrator problem
Professor is requesting Redmine to run from a sub directory rather than the root location on the Web Server.
If this was a typical issue, I would create a symbolic link under the Apache DocumentRoot that links to the location of Redmine. However, it doesn’t work with Redmine as it’s a web application that runs on Ruby on Rails.
Searching on the web lead me to http://www.redmine.org/boards/2/topics/2244 which the User Shaun Mangelsdorf has the solution.
Here is his post.
I’ve had some luck with this config (Apache + passenger):
Alias /redmine /path/to/redmine/public
This solution allows the use of Apache's VirtualHost configurations rather than mongrel and fastcgi.
Let me know if anyone wants a Redmine on CentOS 5.3 HowTo.
