Installing Trac on FreeBSD

Trac is in the FreeBSD ports collection under the name www/trac.

To install Trac on FreeBSD:

$ pkg_add -r trac

Trac installs into the directory /usr/local/share/trac/. For the latest release, the port installs Trac v1.0.4.

Ensure that the ports collection is up to date prior to doing this.

For more information:

Tip: If you don't want the version of Trac available in the ports tree, install the port anyway to have the proper dependencies automatically installed. Uninstall the port, but leave the Trac dependencies installed and then install your chosen version of Trac.

Tip 2: after installing from ports you should change Trac's environment owner to www:www or the user your web server/tracd uses.
