All of our plugins are easy to update, however, we still recommend backing up your Redmine before doing so. Just in case. Better safe than sorry.
If you are running Redmine using Bitnami, version 4.2.3-27-r02 and above, you will have to make permission adjustments to two of your folders. Go to
/bitnami/redmine/public and change the plugin_assets folder permissions to 777 by running the following command:
chmod -R 777 plugin_assets. Then go to
/opt/bitnami/redmine/public and change the themes folder permissions to 777 by running the following command:
chmod -R 777 themes. Now you're all set.
Go To /plugins
Remove the plugin folder you want update and upload the unziped folder of the new version. Alternatively, you can copy the archive in the same location and perform the unzip command in the console.
Make sure you also removed any leftovers located in
/public/plugin_assets - delete the respective folder of the plugin you are updating. If you are updating the UX Upgrade plugin, you also need to delete the
Redminex theme in
Restart Redmine. Based on your hosting provider, you will need to run a command similar to this:
sudo systemctl restart redmine.yourcompany.com.service.
