How can I make Redmine run as a service? I have tried mongrel, win32 service + taskill and got no results.

I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Even more, redmine won't start using thin or *mongrel_rails start -e production* but it will work as a charm with ruby script/rails server webrick -e production

I'm glad it works but I wish I could use it as a service and integrate it in Apache.

Any help would be appreciated

You install a production-quality Rails server, such as Phusion Passenger. This plugs into Apache (or nginx) as a module, much like mod_php does for PHP. WEBrick is only really suitable for development since it can only handle one request at a time.

And, most likely, you use an operating system other than Windows.

BitNami Redmine installs two thin servers as services on Windows. You can find the exact logic to install them as services in the "serviceinstall.bat" script.
