I installed redmine-1.1.3-1.1 on a openSUSE 12.1 using the repositories . Anyway, after the installation: I edited the database.yml file to add the mysql location on other server.

This way:

  adapter: mysql
  database: redmine
  host: <mysql-host>
  username: redmine
  password: <redmine.passwd.on.mysql>
  encoding: utf8

then I started the redmine (rcredmine start)

 # rcredmine start
redirecting to systemctl

an looks like it's working.

 # rcredmine status
redirecting to systemctl
redmine.service - LSB: Redmine Web Server
          Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/redmine)
          Active: active (exited) since Mon, 05 Mar 2012 15:32:27 -0200; 9s ago
         Process: 4601 ExecStop=/etc/init.d/redmine stop (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
         Process: 4683 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/redmine start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
          CGroup: name=systemd:/system/redmine.service

when I watch the logs don't show me anything strange.

 # tail -f /var/log/messages
Mar  5 15:32:27 redmine redmine[4683]: Starting Redmine daemon..done

There's no port at all

~ # netstat -nat | grep 3000
~ # 

What I am missing?

If you are unable to browse to your redmine webpage via http://localhost:3000, are you getting a "can't establish connection" or "connection refused" error? Did you start the webrick as described in step 8 on the redmine install instructions:

ruby script/server webrick -e production

You may need to open port 3000 in your YaST firewall.

More specifics about your exact problem or errors will help.

Followup: since you have rcredmine started, what about the standard web port 80?

found an error, trying the instalation from scratch and when I try to add the gem of mysql on ruby it does not work. In the other hand when I do the same in ubuntu it has not problem at all. So I will keep my ubuntu instalation as the first choise. thanks do. – user12183 Mar 6 '12 at 22:19

the full steps to a proper Redmine installation can be found here:

need to install bundler to make the gem collector.

 gem install bundler

is something goes wrong need to carefully read the output of the error.
