Advanced configuration

You will learn some usefull tricks to configure your Tuleap installation, we assume you are expert enough to undestand what you are doing.

Mailmain-forumml configuration

Forumml is a useful plugins to show your project’s mailing lists as a forum. It allows you to post to the ML too.

Once the plugin is installed, add these lines at the end of /etc/mailman/

DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'https://%s/mailman/'
PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_URL = 'https://%(hostname)s/pipermail/%(listname)s'

Git over HTTP/S configuration

The git service can be configured to work through HTTP/S along with SSH.

Configure Sudo on the server

You must configure sudo on the server. To do so, using the visudo command, copy the content of the file in /usr/share/tuleap/plugins/git/etc/sudoers.d/gitolite-http or /usr/share/tuleap/plugins/git/etc/sudoers.d/gitolite3-http in your central sudo configuration. Wether you should use the former or the latter of those two files is based upon your gitolite version installed. Issue a rpm -qa gitolite to figure it out.

Tuleap configuration

Update the Tuleap’s configuration of the git plugins. This configuration can be found in the /etc/tuleap/plugins/git/etc/, you have to modify the ‘git_http_url’ url line to uncomment it and put the desired suffix to the url (eg:

Apache configuration

Copy and adapt (dbauthuser) appropriate apache config (depending on your OS version) from plugins/git/etc/httpd/git.conf.rhelX.dist to /etc/httpd/conf.d/tuleap-plugins/git-http.conf. Replace /git regarding to the suffix you chose in those two directives:

ScriptAlias /git/ /usr/lib/tuleap/bin/
<Location /git>
  • note that, by default this will grant access to git repositories in both HTTP and HTTPS. If you only want HTTPS, you shall copy the content of the snippet into /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.conf virtual host
  • you will need to adapt the authentication. By default it’s mysql based but you might want to use ldap or perl depending of your setup.
  • restart apache (service httpd restart)
