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:


  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:
  4. The step-by-step installer will appear.
  5. Just use it!

Development setup

  2. Install vagrant-berkshelf plugin. vagrant plugin install vagrant-berkshelf
  3. Download candycane box vagrant box add candycane {url}

./vendor/bin/phpunit app/Test/Case/Selenium/InstallerTest.php

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.
