OpenProject is a free, open-source, and leading project management system written in Ruby on Rails and AngularJS. It allows you to manage projects across a diversity of teams and departments. Also, It is available in both community and enterprise editions. The community edition covers a wide range of features and plugins.
In this context, we shall look into how to install OpenProject software on Debian 11.
1. Perform System Update
To begin, it is a good idea to update your system packages to the updated version. You can update them by running the following command:
$ apt-get update -y
2. Install gnupg and Apt-Transport-Https Package
Once all the packages are updated, run the following command to install other necessary packages:
$ apt-get install gnupg2 wget apt-transport-https -y
3. Install OpenProject
By default, the OpenProject package is not included in the Debian 11 main repository. So you will need to add the OpenProject repository to the APT.
First, download and add the GPG key with the following command:
$ wget -qO- https://dl.packager.io/srv/opf/openproject/key | apt-key add -
Next, add the OpenProject repository with the following command:
$ wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openproject.list https://dl.packager.io/srv/opf/openproject/dev/installer/debian/11.repo
Once the repository is added to the APT, update the repository cache with the following command:
$ apt-get update -y
Once the repository is updated, install the OpenProject using the following command:
$ apt-get install openproject -y
Once the installation has been completed, you will get the following output:
The openproject package provides an installer. Please run the following command to finish the installation:
$ sudo openproject configure
Setting up imagemagick (8:220.127.116.11+dfsg-1.3) ...
Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.31-13) ...
Processing triggers for man-db (2.9.4-2) ...
Processing triggers for mailcap (3.69) ...
At this point, OpenProject is installed in your system. You can now proceed to configure it.
4. Configure OpenProject
You can now configure the OpenProject using the command below:
$ openproject configure
You can check the status of the Apache using the following command:
$ systemctl status apache2
Now, OpenProject is installed and configured.
