Redmine Ubuntu Installation Error

One of the most amazing software tools that I have found which meet almost all my needs in the day to day working is Redmine (hard to convince people in the office though). However I ran into a problem recently which seems to be quite prevalent going by the searches thrown up.

Cannot start Ruby on Rails application
The directory "/usr/share" does not appear to be a valid Ruby on Rails application root.


  1. I have the same for /var/www, any idea ?

  2. Hi Max, I don't know what you mean 'same' ? Are you linking the correct path ?
