How To Install OpenProject on Centos 7 Step-by-Step Guide

There are a few caveats that may not be obvious to everyone so I am going to cover them here but keep this in mind before starting.

#1) When you specify your SSL certificate with a full path, it really needs to exist where you tell it to (including the default location of /etc/ssl/certs and /etc/ssl/certs/private).

Also note to make a cert there is a quick shell script in /etc/ssl/certs called "make-dummy-cert" that you can run to make the cert.

#2) server/hostname where you enter the fqdn of www.yourdomain.com is an actual vhost that gets created.  This means if you want the public to easily access the domain that you must control it and point it to your OpenProject server.

Here is where the vhost conf is and what it looks like (in case you want to change the vhost domain)

vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/openproject.conf


Include /etc/openproject/addons/apache2/includes/server/*.conf


  ServerName areebopenproject.com
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteRule ^/?(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}:443/$1 [R,L]



  ServerName areebopenproject.com
  DocumentRoot /opt/openproject/public

  ProxyRequests off

  Include /etc/openproject/addons/apache2/includes/vhost/*.conf

  # Can't use Location block since it would overshadow all the other proxypass directives on CentOS
  ProxyPass / http://127.0.0.1:6000/ retry=0
  ProxyPassReverse / http://127.0.0.1:6000/

 

 

If not you can use your hosts file in linux or Windows to hardcode the IP to the FQDN.

 

Step - 1 Add Repo and install openproject:

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/openproject.repo https://dl.packager.io/srv/opf/openproject-ce/stable/7/installer/el/7.repo
yum -y install openproject
openproject configure

Step - 2 Curses Config

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note below that you are saying the cert is located exactly where the installer has it by default.

You can change it or leave it as is if you plan to copy the exact same cert there.

 

 The same issue goes for below, take a note of where the prviate key should be located.

Also note to make a cert there is a quick shell script in /etc/ssl/certs called "make-dummy-cert" that you can run to make the cert.

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

After that visit your domain to access OpenProject:

The default login is admin/admin
