You can download entrier bitnami redmine VM.

Well I did practical installation without much google strolling.

What you need - a Linux(or BSD) distribution that provides in default packages:
1) RUBY
2) Passenger apache modules
3) Bundler
4) MySQL or MariaDB database
5) Subversion (for upgrades, also usable inside redmine as RCS)

e.g. Centos+EPEL does, Ubuntu, openSUSE, Mageia, Fedora does just as any *BSD

Then once you can get required software together without lots of effort just follow redmine installation guide
Once in a while check if new release is out and you gain by migrating, or you need security upgrades etc. AKA normal app maintenance.

Yes, you must use same user for passenger as your apache runs as.

This was Kind of the solution I was looking for however I wanted a Redmine install onUubuntu, not Bitnami or Turnkey

After numerous attempts via Google I found this one to be most useful and works very well.

redmine's own supported way is SVN upgrades... And it works well...
