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 server shared with other applications will certainly cause problems in both Tuleap and your other applications.

Tuleap can be installed on the following Linux x86_64 systems:
  • CentOS or Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.x (LEGACY). The details of the installation on this system is not covered in this guide.

  • Enterprise Linux 9 (RHEL, Rocky, Alma Linux 9).

You must disable SELinux prior to the install.

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


Database must be MySQL v8.0.

The database must be dedicated to Tuleap. Either it’s a local installation (as described below, perfect for small & medium instances) or provided by an external service.

Shared databases must not be used:

  • they cannot guarantee the needed Quality of service

  • they cannot respect the requirements (SQL modes) described below

  • they make consistent backups almost impossible
