Description (last modified by Emmanuel Blot)

Following the installation instructions, I am able to install Trac and create the postgresql database (using the same syntax as suggested for Debian). However, when I attempt to initialize the Trac environment, I get:

Creating and Initializing Project Failed to create environment. FATAL: Ident authentication failed for user "tracuser"

SystemExit: 1

As the error suggests, I am using Ident authorization (do you advise this method?). I created a "tracuser" account on the system and executed this command to initialize the Trac environment:

[tracuser@localhost ~]$ sudo su - postgres -c 'trac-admin /var/local/trac/featurestage initenv'

I am using CentOS 5.1

  1. Can't you read?
  2. Can't you google? (warning, requires 1.)

Sorry to be harsh, but reopening a ticket stated to be invalid with a "me too" is really not going to make you friends ;-)

Raneesh,

You won't find these guys real helpful, as you can tell from the knee jerk reactions to your reopening of this ticket. The best answer you'll get is to not use ident or use another issue tracker. I guess they don't understand that you have many choices and they come off sounding cold and irrelevant.
