I need a web based project management software. It should basically have:

  • Issue tracker
  • Wiki (not mandatory)
  • Git integration
  • Progress

It should be open source and I should be able to install it onto my server.

Currently, I have found the following options :

Is there anyone who tested one of those software? I'm also open to any other suggestion.

I'd recommend using Trac (for details and screenshots, see my answers here and here. Trac fulfills all your requirements listed:

  • Issue tracker: Yes.
  • Wiki: Yes.
  • GIT integration: Yes, also other VCSs as e.g. SVN or Mercurial are supported. For Git, there's even integration with Github.
  • Progress: Yes, via multiple plugins you can even chose what fits you best.
  • Self-hosted: Definitely, that's what I use. Requirements are at least Python and a web server supporting Python; setup is not that difficult using Apache.

A setup guide for use with SVN can be found on my server. You can skip the SVN part and take a look at Installing Trac and Useful Trac resources. I'm sure there are guides for setting up Trac with Git as well, and probably even more up-to-date ones at that (mine is already a little outdated).

  • Thank you for your answer. Some people recommend RedMine over Trac. Have you also tried RedMine?

    No. I'm using Trac for years already (since v0.8), and until now never saw a reason to look for something different.

    Enjoy! For performance reasons, I recommend to not use mod_python but mod_wsgi – gives a huge speedup.

There are various options out there: Gitlab, Redmine, Launchpad, and others.

Out of all of these, I have the best experience with GitLab, which is used by the likes of the GNOME project and F-Droid. (According to Wikipedia, other users include IBM, Sony, Jülich Research Center, NASA, Alibaba, Invincea, O’Reilly Media, Leibniz-Rechenzentrum (LRZ), CERN, European XFEL, and SpaceX)

As for your needs:

  • Issue tracker: yes
  • Wiki (not mandatory): yes
  • Git integration: yes
  • Progress: I think so--see if milestones meet your needs
  • Open-source: yes
  • Can self-host: yes
