Plugins directory location?

I’m fairly new to Ruby and Ruby on Rails, and I’ve installed the RubyStack + Redmine module on a Mac. I have no idea where the RoR plugins directory is. I’ve read the article posted to as an answer to most queries about plugins (, but it references RAILS_ROOT which isn’t an environment variable. I have no further experience with Ruby or RoR or where any of their directories may be.

I’ve tried placing a plugin into the plugins directory under Redmine (rubystack install dir/apps/redmine/lib/plugins), but the plugin doesn’t show up in Redmine.

Any help is appreciated.

The RAILS_ROOT directory is <installation_directory>/apps/redmine/plugins.

I hope it helps.

I checked that location but there wasn’t a plugins directory.

I created the plugins directory and put a plugin into it, then restarted the RubyStack. When I go into Redmine->Administration->Plugins, I get a message that there’s no data to display.

Sorry, the exact folder is <installation_directory>/apps/redmine/vendor/plugins.
