Installing Redmine & Subversion on CentOS 5.5

In this CentOS 5.5 tutorial we will be installing Redmine and Subversion with LDAP authentication on a CentOS 5.5 i386 server. The assumption is that you have a basic to medium understanding of Apache and MySQL but if you follow this tutorial you should be able to complete the task successfully. A bit on the software that we’ll be using:

Redmine
Redmine is a flexible project management web application. Written using Ruby on Rails framework, it is cross-platform and cross-database. An online demo can be found here:
http://demo.redmine.org/

Subversion
Subversion is a free/open-source version control system. That is, Subversion manages files and directories, and the changes made to them, over time. This allows you to recover older versions of your data, or examine the history of how your data changed.

Preliminary Note:
I am using a CentOS 5.5 i386 base installation in this tutorial.
