wget -qO- https://dl.packager.io/srv/opf/openproject-ce/key | sudo apt-key add -
Next we need to install the HTTPS support for apt using the command:
apt-get install apt-transport-https
After that we need to add the OpenProject package source to the package manager source list. This can be done using the command:
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openproject-ce.list https://dl.packager.io/srv/opf/openproject-ce/stable/7/installer/debian/8.repo
After that we can install the OpenProject software using the commands:
apt-get update apt-get install openprojectThis should install Open Project to the folder: /opt/openproject.
Before starting the configuration wizard, we should have the MySQL database connection information, email settings and location of the HTTPS certificate files. If we don't have this information with us, then we can cancel the wizard at any stage and then run it again. The wizard will resume from where it was interrupted. If we want to start the configuration process again we can issue the command: openproject reconfigure.
When the configuration process ends, it starts the openproject server on port 6000. It also configures all the required virtual host settings for Apache, if this option was selecting during the configuration. We should now be able to login to our Open Project installation at the url that was specified during the configuration process.
The default login information is admin/admin. Once the user enters this information, he will be asked to enter a new admin password
