#3774 closed defect (worksforme)

TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR doesn't seem to be enough to launch Trac

I tried to set up this variable: SetEnv TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR "/path/to/project/parent/dir"

But Trac demands from me the TRAC_ENV to be set, or otherwise refuses to run.

When I set the TRAC_ENV to a project directory - it doesn't seem to see any other projects?

I'd be grateful for either fixing this (if it's a bug) or updating the documentation to let people like me know how to approach this problem. I use CGI version on Apache2, Python2.3.

Great work, by the way!

Can you provide the section of your Apache config with the Trac settings? You may have made a typo or other config mistake that is preventing this from working.

Here it goes: (When I add # in front of the TRAC_ENV line it refuses to load up :-(

devbox:/etc/apache2/conf.d# cat trac.d Alias /trac-htdocs /usr/share/trac/htdocs

<Directory "usr/share/trac/htdocs">

Order allow,deny Allow from all

</Directory> <Location "/trac">

AuthType Basic AuthName "Trac" AuthUserFile /usr/share/trac/trac.htpasswd Require valid-user

SetEnv TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR "/usr/share/trac/projects" SetEnv TRAC_ENV "/usr/share/trac/projects/qportal"

</Location> ScriptAlias /trac/trac.cgi /usr/share/trac/cgi-bin/trac.cgi
