Installation Instructions

Open Design Engine (ODE) is based on Redmine. The official installation method is to install the Bitnami Redmine Stack, apply some custom configuration to the stack, and then upgrade the installed Redmine instance to the ODE source code. Support for other stacks (or bootstrapped installations) will come with future releases. With luck, one or more of the stack providers will add ODE to their list of supported stacks.

If you're looking to upgrade from a previous version of ODE, see Upgrading ODE

Note, these instructions assume you are running the Ubuntu VM image of the Bitnami Redmine Stack and are running all commands under sudo. They were tested with version 1.1.3 in VMWare Player.
