CandyCane is a issue tracking system. The original implementation on which it is based, is Redmine

You can view a live demo of CandyCane, as well as the bug tracking for CandyCane here: http://my.candycane.jp/


  1. Extract all files, and place into a directory that is accessible to the web server, and able to run PHP.
  2. Setup correct permissions on files and folders:
    • chmod -R 777 app/Config
    • chmod -R 777 app/files
    • chmod -R 777 app/tmp
    • chmod -R 777 app/Plugin
  3. Access the site via your web server. If you installed into a subdirectory, then ensure that directory is in your URL: http://mysite.com/candycane
  4. The step-by-step installer will appear.
  5. Just use it!

Updating to latest version

You need to copy these file and directories into extracted latest codes. Currently we don't make database schema change.

  • app/Config/database.php
  • app/files
  • app/Plugin


Currently some features which are present in Redmine are not supported by CandyCane. These are:

  • Repository viewer
  • Forum
  • Documents

CandyCane is using CakePHP v2.3.
