Overview of installing Trac on Windows

There are several ways to get Trac up and running on Windows. This page will give you an overview.

  1. Step-by-step installation guides can be found in the CookBook/Installation#OnWindows. They are easy to follow and use the typical Windows point-and-click style.
  2. All-in-one installer is provided through the BitNami Trac stack. It provides a Windows installer (as well as Linux and Mac OSX ones) that will install in a self-contained environment Python, Apache and Subversion, along with Trac and Genshi. It will let you create a new repository and a new Trac environment. Alternatively, you can also get the same software as a VMWare image or even an Amazon Machine Image. (However since version Bitnami removed integration support for Subversion under Microsoft Windows.)
  3. A list of the various installers can be found on page TracOnWindows@282.

Whichever method you pick, please familiarize yourself with some key concepts like the TracEnvironment, and also the TracStandalone web front-end, useful for testing or for setting up directly as a service.

The TracOnWindows/Advanced instructions cover in detail alternative ways to install Trac on Windows, on different database backends or on different web server front-ends.

Finally, the installation instructions for previous major versions of Trac can still be found in the Trac0.9/TracOnWindows, 0.10/TracOnWindows pages.
