404 Error with the redmine importer


I try to import from redmine using the external system import tool.

I configure the URL and the username/password click on Next and get this error :

Cannot login to Redmine site: Server returned '404 not found'. response body:<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> <html> <title>redMine 404 error</title> <style> body{ font-family: Trebuchet MS,Georgia,"Times New Roman",serif; color:#303030; margin:10px; } h1{ font-size:1.5em; } p{ font-size:0.8em; } </style> <body> <h1>Page not found</h1> <p>The page you were trying to access doesn't exist or has been removed.</p> <p><a href="javascript:history.back()">Back</a></p> </body> </html>

I can access Redmine with the same URL and credentials via a web browser.

It seems that the redmine release is 2.4.2.

Thanks for your help

The redmine version is 1.02 that is not compatible with the importer.


I have the same problem with
Redmine version: 2.3.2.stable

Any ideas?

The importer will work with the exact url for redmine, without a trailing slash



Does not work:


I hope this saves other people looking for this issue the headache i had for the last hour...

Best wishes
