Full Installation

Why should I use the Tuleap full installation?

The full installation is the common way to install tuleap. It uses your distribution package system and will provide a fully configurable and adjustable environment. It is robust so you can deploy production environment this way.


To install Tuleap you will need a fully dedicated server. It can be virtualized or physical. It is not recommended to install Tuleap on a server that hosts other applications. Tuleap provides a full suite of software and is deeply integrated with its host system. Installing Tuleap on a mutualized server will certainly cause probleme in both Tuleap and your other applications.

Tuleap can be installed on the following Linux x86_64 systems:
  • CentOS or RedHat 6.x is the recommended platform
  • CentOS or RedHat 7.x is available in beta.

Currently, Tuleap does not play well with SELinux, you probably want to set SELinux’s behavior to permissive mode to avoid issues.

The server will need an Internet connection as it will download external packages.


This installation guide will cover the installation on the recommended system: Redhat/CentOS 6.x.

  • Install EPEL You will need EPEL for some dependencies (e.g. ckeditor).
yum install -y epel-release
  • If you use Red Hat, you will need to activate the Optional channel
  • Install the Software Collections repositories

On CentOS this is done by:

yum install centos-release-scl

On RedHat this is done by:

yum-config-manager --enable rhel-server-rhscl-6-rpms
  • Install Tuleap repositories Create a /etc/yum.repos.d/Tuleap.repo with this content:
  • Install Tuleap by running the following command:
yum install -y tuleap-all tuleap-plugin-git-gitolite3


Please do not repeat this step twice. This script should only be executed once. If you have any errors in the previous steps, be sure to fix those before continuing.

As root, run:


It will ask you for:

  • Tuleap Domain name. This is the public name of the server.

  • Your Company name. Who need more informations about this?

  • On redhat systems, the firewall is activated by default. Open needed ports:

    • Web (TCP/80 & TCP/443)
    • SSH (git, admin): TCP/22
    • More if you need more (FTP, SMTP, …).

Mail configuration

Tuleap interacts with Postfix to process mails. The following lines should be uncommented/modified in the main Postfix configuration file generally located in /etc/postfix/main.cf:

myhostname = mytuleap.domainname.example.com
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases,hash:/etc/aliases.codendi
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases,hash:/etc/aliases.codendi
recipient_delimiter = +

First connection

Once these steps are completed, you can access the Tuleap server with the web interface. Go to your Tuleap domain name (e.g. https://tuleap.example.com)

Default site administrator credentials can be found in /root/.tuleap_passwd. Change it as soon as possible.

Backups are under your responsibility so you probably want to take a look at the Backup/Restore guide.

Next steps

Once you have a fully running Tuleap you can start using it: issue tracking, source code management, agile planning and more.
