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:

Continuous Integration is running on 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/plugins
  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!


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

  • Repository viewer
  • Forum
  • Documents

CandyCane is using CakePHP v1.2. But using some PHP5 syntax in codes.
