Installing and Running Trac on Debian
Note: This page does not provide step-by-step instructions for installing and configuring all of Trac. Use this page as a reference for installing the Debian software packages and the locations of configuration files, but you will need to read TracInstall and the other documentation sections for complete instructions on running and configuring Trac.
These instructions require the Debian Sarge release or newer. There are instructions below for installing Trac on Woody. Check http://packages.debian.org/trac to see the latest available Trac version for your Debian release.
These instructions use the commandline tool
apt-get to install the packages which you will need to run as the
root user. If you prefer to use a graphical tool such as
synaptic you can search for the package names mentioned to install them.
apt-get install trac
apt-get install apache2
In addition to installing the server itself you will need to install one of the Apache modules mentioned below to allow the Trac application to run under Apache. Each subsection refers to the general Trac documentation for the Apache configuration necessary for that module. On Debian it is recommended to put your Trac Apache configuration statements into a new file called "/etc/apache2/sites-available/trac". Then use the following command to enable your Trac site:
More detailed Apache documentation can be found in the package
For Trac versions 0.8.x mod_python is recommended. Trac 0.9 also supports FastCGI. CGI instructions are provided, but this is not recommended since mod_python or FastCGI will give significantly better performance.
apt-get install libapache2-mod-python a2enmod mod_python
See TracModPython for further instructions.
Note: FastCGI requires Trac 0.9 or higher.
Note: Trac currently requires the Apache module listed below from the "non-free" Debian repository. There is another similar module called "fcgi" instead of "fastcgi". The "fcgi" module will not work.
apt-get install libapache2-mod-fcgid a2enmod fcgid
See TracFastCgi for further instructions.
The CGI module is included with the Apache2 packages, but you will need to ensure that the module is loaded in order to run CGI scripts:
See TracCgi for further instructions.
apt-get install enscript python-docutils
I have found that in Ubuntu, a2ensite trac complains about trac site being unexistent. Manu.
Whilst trying to get Trac working on Debian Sarge with Python 2.3, I got the following error:
PythonHandler trac.web.modpython_frontend: ImportError: No module named web
I found that I had to use this line in the Apache2 config rather than the one given:
# PythonHandler trac.web.modpython_frontend PythonHandler trac.ModPythonHandler
I always have trouble finding this page so I'll post a link here. It's relevent enough that someone could merge it in… latest trac on sarge
