Installing Trac on FreeBSD

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

At the time of writing the version available is predominately 1.0.1. (You can check the version available for your architecture by looking at the portsmon page for www/trac.)

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, leaving 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.

You can also do:

$ pkg_add -r trac
