One-click installers: project management tools

Posted in Control panel by

It’s time for another installment in our ongoing series about the one-click installers available with the control panel. Today’s look is at project management tools. Project management tools are handy for keeping up with the plans and changes of a software project. Project management tools offer features like version control browsers and ticket trackers. With the control panel, you can install two such tools: Trac and Redmine.


Trac has an impressive array of features, including a wiki, a ticket tracker, a roadmap and milestones tracker, and a whole-project timeline of recent activity (like version control changes and ticket updates).

WebFaction’s Trac installer comes in two variations: one for use with Git repositories and another for use with Subversion repositories. Make sure to choose the version that matches your version control repository. (A while back we blogged about adding Git support to our Trac installer).

For more information, see the WebFaction-specific docs for Trac and the official Trac Guide.


Like Trac, Redmine offers a bunch of features, like a wiki, issue tracking, and time tracking.

Unlike the Trac installer, the Redmine installer doesn’t link directly to another repository application; you can configure repositories after Redmine is set up. It even supports multiple projects, with public and private permissions, if needed.

For more information, see the WebFaction-specific docs for Redmine and the official Redmine Guide.

So if you’re working on a project, give one of these tools a try. If you have any questions, join us in the Q&A Community.
