Description

The trac documentation makes no mention in the requirements section as to the type of hardware that is required to successfully run trac. Is there anyone out that who can add this critical part of information to the requirements page or is there anyone out there that can answer this question… i.e. processor speed and ram requirements for a typical setup …just anything would be of help… and what if it's trac only… what if it's track with a wiki, what if svn is added… there must be some way of saying something about it.

Using sqlite and tracd to keep the requirements to a minimum, I wouldn't be surprised if I could get Trac running on my N800 tablet (read: ~300 Mhz processor, 128MB RAM). Basically the requirements are entirely driven by your install. If you want a 1-2 person tiny site, you can use almost anything that still boots. If you need to handle 100 requests a minute and are running multiple Apache servers with a load balancer etc etc, then obviously you will need to to invest a bit more in hardware.

Replying to nkantrowitz:

At least, Trac 0.11 runs on a Qnap TS-109 with Debian Etch, Apache 2.2 w/ mod_python+mod_svn. It's not really fast, but still usable. The more RAM the better, I'd say, Python loves it.

I have added a few generic comments about hardware requirements to TracInstall.

What about Disk space? What are the recommendations?
