Trac on Fedora Core
Installing Trac On Fedora Core 4 (and higher), and also on RHEL 4 or higher is easy with Yum and involves only 3 steps:
1) Verify you have configured Yum to use the Extras repository (which is enabled by default in Fedora Core 4 and higher) and run the following command in a terminal window:
$ sudo yum install trac
Yum will take care of all dependencies on which the Trac package depends (including the python-clearsilver package) and will fetch and install them for you automatically.
NOTE: Unless you're on Fedora 7, in which case, you will need to also install python-sqlite2 if you are using the default sqlite backend.
2) Create a new project environment. An environment is basically a directory that contains a human-readable configuration file and various other files and directories.
Create a subversion repository if you don't already have one, for example in /srv/svn:
$ sudo mkdir -p /srv/svn $ sudo svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs /srv/svn
Next you need to decide where to store your trac project and create the directory, for example in the new directory /srv/trac:
$ sudo mkdir -p /srv/trac
Then create a new environment using trac-admin, as in this example for project foobar
$ sudo trac-admin /srv/trac/foobar initenv
Now make it owned by apache:
$ sudo chown -R apache /srv/trac $ sudo chown -R apache /srv/svn
3) Next, you need to edit the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/trac.conf to point to your new project environment, as in this example (using mod_python):
# The Location is the part after the host (http://example.com<Location>) that # you want to serve the Trac site <Location /trac> SetHandler mod_python PythonHandler trac.web.modpython_frontend # "/svn/trac/foobar" is the folder you gave to trac-admin initenv earlier PythonOption TracEnv /srv/trac/foobar # "/trac" is the same as the Location above PythonOption TracUriRoot /trac # "/tmp" should be some writable temporary directory SetEnv PYTHON_EGG_CACHE /tmp # "trac" can be any string, but must be the same for all # Trac instances on the same Apache install PythonInterpreter trac </Location> <Location /trac/login> AuthType Basic AuthName "alexandria" AuthUserFile /srv/trac/conf/trac.htpasswd Require valid-user </Location>
The example above assumes you have a trac project environment setup in /srv/trac/foobar/ directory, described in step 2 and an htpasswd file at /opt/trac/trac.htpasswd for authentication purposes (see also wiki:TracModPython (too generic)).
You will need to tell Apache to reload configuration after editing trac.conf:
$ sudo service httpd reload
Verify your Trac installation by pointing your browser at the correct URL for your Trac server (e.g. http://localhost/trac).
Notes on the Fedora Extras Trac package:
- trac.cgi and trac.fcgi are installed in /var/www/cgi-bin/ (actually, /usr/share/trac/cgi-bin for FC5).
- apache webserver config file is installed in /etc/httpd/conf.d/trac.conf
If you happen to come across any packaging issues, feature requests or problems on Fedora, you can submit a bugzilla bug for the Trac package at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/easy_enter_bug.cgi.
Be sure to check out the generic installation instructions in the TracGuide
Fedora Core 5 ships with SELinux enabled by default. You need to make the Trac and Subversion directory accessible to the webserver. If you put these contents under
/var/www/svn to follow RedHat's standard for location of web contents, you don't need to do anything extra for SELinux. But if you want an alternative location such as
/srv, follow thiese guidelines and read the notes at http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-apache-fc3/ for details.
$ sudo chcon -R -t httpd_sys_content_t /srv/trac $ sudo chcon -R -t httpd_sys_content_t /srv/svn
If you put these under
/srv/www/svn instead, the
restorecon command will know that these attributes should be preserved. Alternatively, you can teach
restorecon about these two directories by adding the lines:
/srv/trac(/.*)? system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t /srv/svn(/.*)? system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t
to the file
/etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/filecontexts.local. You may need to create this file if it is not already present. If SELinux continues to block write access for Trac, you may have the httpd_unified policy turned off. In this case, try these lines instead:
/srv/trac(/.*)? system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_rw_t /srv/svn(/.*)? system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_rw_t
