Thanks for your patience during this time of disruption. HostedRedmine.com appears to be performing well at present and we will continue to monitor its performance. If you experience any problems, find the website too slow, or have any suggestions, please feel free to get in touch.
Thanks for your support.
We are currently deleting thousands of old private projects from HostedRedmine.com.
Unfortunately, it is a big job and it is having an impact on the website currently. It has been running for a few days and will probably be finished by tomorrow.
The primary affect is the occasional HTTP 500 error and slow database update performance.
We have also upgraded the Redmine software and fixed a number of important bugs.
The good news is that once this is all finished, I expect HostedRedmine.com will perform much better than it has for some time. The user experience should be really good once again!
Thanks for your patience while we work through this. If you experience any major problems, please let me know so we can assist.
We've just upgraded HostedRedmine.com to 2.4 stable. This includes some new features and many bug fixes. Please let me know if you experience any issues.
Due to a huge influx of spam across many projects, I have been forced to turn off anonymous posting of issues and issue notes.
The down side is that this will block some creation of issues from email etc. Please let me know if this causes anyone serious problems, and we can explore any alternatives.
I hope this helps the people that have been affected by the spam.
The Redmine Mylyn Connector plugin is working once again (for integration into IDEs).
You can see what plugins are available at the Plugins page.
New HostedRedmine.com fail-over backup service (2 comments)
We are pleased to announce we have launched a new fail-over backup service for HostedRedmine.com at http://failover.hostedredmine.com
The fail-over server is a completely separate server to ensure that HostedRedmine.com has the highest possible availability and is no longer unavailable during software upgrades and plug-in maintenance. The fail-over server shares the same database as the production HostedRedmine.com, so no data is ever lost, even when adding or modifying content using the fail-over. Even email notifications will continue to work normally.
We have been able to launch this new server as a result of moving file attachments into the Amazon S3 cloud and other recent service improvements.
If there is anything else we can assist you with, please let me know.
Redmine upgraded and heaps of new themes (3 comments)
The version of Redmine has been upgraded from v1.4 to v2.3 and all the plugins have been upgraded also.
Attached files in Redmine are now stored automatically in Amazon S3 in private storage and I have raised the file size limit from 5MB to 10MB. If you require a higher limit, please let me know why and I can look into raising it.
The website appears to be fully functioning and running fast.The only issues remaining after the upgrade are:
- the Delete Project plugin is causing 404 errors if you enable the Delete Project module. I will try to find a resolution for this issue soon. For now, you might need to raise a support issue if you require a project to be deleted.
- the Redmine Mylyn Connector plugin is not working (for integration into IDEs).
You can see what plugins are available at the Plugins page.
I have also installed a selection of the best themes available for Redmine, which you can select from the My account link. I decided to change the default theme to the wonderful Coffee theme with thanks to the good folks at redminecrm.com.
Any feedback, please let me know.
Upgrade of Redmine to version 2.3 this weekend (8 comments)
Please be aware that we will start migrating to Redmine v2.3 over this weekend. During the upgrade process, there may be some disruption to the HostedRedmine.com service. We hope this will not inconvenience you too much.
Any concerns, please let us know.
Major software upgrade performed (4 comments)
Over the weekend we worked hard to upgrade our servers to the latest software versions in preparation for continuing to support HostedRedmine.com as a free service. I'm pleased to announce that these upgrades were successful with very minimal disruption to users.
The HostedRedmine.com service is running fast and very responsive again, however if you experience any issues please let us know.
We have reinstated the Charts tab plugin with a newer and improved version that fixes most of the previous problems.
We have upgraded to the latest Redmine 1.4 revision and we have prepared for upgrading to the latest Redmine 2.3 version soon. We still have some issues to sort out with plugin compatibilities.
We have begun deleting really old projects from our database, but at this stage we are only deleting projects that are private projects and have been untouched for 1-2 years. Deleting old projects will free up disk space and speed up the database for other users. We don't plan to delete unused accounts at this stage.
We are considering removing some of the Google Adwords to make the user experience more pleasant. These ads provide income to pay for the service costs, however we are open to less obtrusive methods.
I hope your experience with HostedRedmine.com is a good one. We are really interested in your feedback. Please get in contact with your thoughts to make this service better for everyone.
Redmine Delete Project Plugin download URL (2 comments)
The original URL that hosted the Redmine Delete Project plugin (
redmine_delete_project) has disappeared so I have decided to provide a copy here:
I hope this helps somebody out there because it is a very handy plugin.
