Redmine is a free and open source, web-based project management and issue tracking tool. It allows users to manage multiple projects and associated subprojects. It features per project wikis and forums, time tracking, and flexible, role-based access control. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Redmine on your Synology NAS using Docker.
Redmine 5.0.6 release.This guide works perfectly with the latest
Install Portainer using my step by step guide. If you already have Portainer installed on your Synology NAS, skip this STEP. Attention: Make sure you have installed the latest Portainer version.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it redmine. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful to enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Now create two new folders inside the redmine folder that you created at STEP 3 and name them data and db. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Log into Portainer using your username and password. On the left sidebar in Portainer, click on Stacks then + Add stack. Follow the instructions in the image below.
In the Name field type in redmine. Follow the instructions in the image below.

Note: Before you paste the code above in the Web editor area below, change the value numbers for user with your own UID and GID values. (Follow my step by step guide on how to do this.) 1026 is my personal UID value and 100 is my personal GID value. You have to type in your own values.
Scroll down on the page until you see a button named Deploy the stack. Click on it. Follow the instructions in the image below. The installation process can take up to a few minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection.

Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂.
