ChiliProject is not maintained anymore. Please be advised that there will be no more updates.

We do not recommend that you setup new ChiliProject instances and we urge all existing users to migrate their data to a maintained system, e.g. Redmine. We will provide a migration script later. In the meantime, you can use the instructions by Christian Daehn.

Database Adapter

Also you need a database adapter. Choose one according to your actually used database. ChiliProject equally supports the following databases:
  • MySQL 5.x
  • PostgreSQL 8.x — Any 8.x version is fully supported. Tests on 9.0 are sparse, so use this version on your own risk.
  • Sqlite3

For some databases, there exists different ruby adapters available. Some of them are not developed any further. On a new installation you are thus advises to use the preferred version. The preferred adapter for each database is marked with a star.
