Installation Notes

  • Support for subversion is very limited. You can not add/manage arbitrary repositories. You can only add a repository as directly linked to an open project.
  • For manual configuration, perform the installation and issue the command as root from the command line:
    openproject configure
  • To create the database on a remote (postgres) server, log into the remote server before you do the setup and issue the following commands as user psql:
    create user openproject;
    create database openproject with owner openproject;
    grant all privileges on database openproject to openproject;
    alter role openproject with password 'your password here';
  • You can “zap” the database and recreate it by logging into the database server, dropping the database and recreating it.
    drop database openproject
    create database openproject with owner openproject;
    grant all privileges on database openproject to openproject;
    • Afterwards, go to the OpenProject server and issue the following command to recreate the database tables
      openproject reconfigure
  • On Devuan, OpenProject will not correctly determine that it is using SysV for the init system. It tries to use systemD to perform automatic running of the daemon. I run the following command in a screen window (so I can see the output)
    openproject run web
