#2828 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Does Trac HAVE to reside on Subversion server?

I am new to Trac, and do not find anywher that says how to configure Trac to access a Subversion repository on a remote machine. We do not want our Bug Tracking database on the same machine as our Source Control.

When executing: python trac-admin c:\Trac\Project_env initenv

It prompts for the repository location and says it must be a local path. I have tried to use a mapped drive, and also the svn://hostname/project syntax, both to no avail.

Remote SVN repositories are not supported yet, see #493.

Anyway, there is a big red box in the "New Ticket" page that says:
Support and installation questions should be asked on the mailing list or IRC channel, not filed as tickets

You can't use Trac (not yet) with remote repository but you could mirror remote repository using this program: http://svk.elixus.org/

If you're on Windows, the Python bindings support UNC paths, so you can use a repository that's shared out on another machine. Just use the UNC path instead of the local file path when setting up Trac. (Note that this can be slow and that this usage is not recommended by the Subversion development team.)
