Trac Installation Guide
The Trac web-based project management tool is implemented as a server side cgi-program. Trac is written in the Python programming language and store it's data in a sqlite database.
The following dependencies have to be installed:
- Python, version ≥ 2.1.
- subversion, version ≥ 0.29.
- pysqlite, version ≥ 0.4.3
- ClearSilver, version ≥ 0.9.3
- A CGI-capable webserver (only tested with Apache)
$ python ./setup.py build $ python ./setup.py install
Initializing the database
Trac stores wiki pages, tickes and other information in a sqlite database. Sqlite databases ar just ordinary files on the harddrive, no database server is required.
A new trac database can be created like this:
$ trac_admin /path/to/mydatabase.db initdb
NOTE: The database file have to be located in a directory where the webserver user has write permission to both the file and the directory.
This creates a new database using default values. Some settings still need to be modified to get your Trac installation up and running. The following command will display the trac configuration:
$ trac_admin /path/to/mydatabase.db config list
Most settings should be okey, but you have to verify that these settings are correct:
- general.repository_dir. This should be the path to the svn repository.
- general.templates_dir. This should be the path to the trac template directory.
A config value is modified like this:
$ trac_admin /path/to/mydatabase.db config set <name> <value>
