I am following this guide to intall redmine.

It has a section on apache2 virtual host configuration.

sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/mysite
<VirtualHost *:80>
 DocumentRoot /var/www/redmine
 LogLevel warn
 ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/redmine_error
 CustomLog /var/log/apache2/redmine_access combined
 <Directory /var/www/redmine>
 Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
 AllowOverride None
 Order allow,deny
 allow from all
 RailsBaseURI /redmine
 PassengerResolveSymlinksInDocumentRoot on

In my case, I have a Ubuntu server with static ip

I need to access the redmine application preferably in a non standard port (instead of ServerName configuration as above and access through http://my_website).

So, I need to access the application from another PC (need access only in local subnet) through url

thanks in advance.

You can just change this line

<VirtualHost *:80>

to this in order to listen on port 8888

<VirtualHost *:8888>

And of course restart the server after making this change.
