Changes between Version 1 and Version 2 of TracStandalone

04/02/14 15:33:15 (10 years ago)



  • TracStandalone

    v1 v2  
    88 * Fast: Should be almost as fast as the [wiki:TracModPython mod_python] version (and much faster than the [wiki:TracCgi CGI]).
    99 * Automatic reloading: For development, Tracd can be used in ''auto_reload'' mode, which will automatically restart the server whenever you make a change to the code (in Trac itself or in a plugin).
     10  * Options for tracd: `-r, --auto-reload`
    1112== Cons ==
    2122 $ tracd -p 8080 /path/to/project
     24Stricly speaking this will make your Trac accessible to everybody from your network rather than ''localhost only''. To truly limit it use ''--hostname'' option.
     26 $ tracd --hostname=localhost -p 8080 /path/to/project
    2328With more than one project. (http://localhost:8080/project1/ and http://localhost:8080/project2/)
     41To exit the server on Windows, be sure to use {{{CTRL-BREAK}}} -- using {{{CTRL-C}}} will leave a Python process running in the background.
     43== Installing as a Windows Service ==
     45To install as a Windows service, get the [ SRVANY] utility and run:
     47 C:\path\to\instsrv.exe tracd C:\path\to\srvany.exe
     48 reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\tracd\Parameters /v Application /d "\"C:\path\to\python.exe\" \"C:\path\to\python\scripts\\" <your tracd parameters>"
     49 net start tracd
     52'''DO NOT''' use {{{tracd.exe}}}.  Instead register {{{python.exe}}} directly with {{{}}} as a parameter.  If you use {{{tracd.exe}}}, it will spawn the python process without SRVANY's knowledge.  This python process will survive a {{{net stop tracd}}}.
     54If you want tracd to start automatically when you boot Windows, do:
     56 sc config tracd start= auto
     59The spacing here is important.
    3661== Using Authentication ==
    38 Tracd provides support for both Basic and Digest authentication. The default is to use Digest; to use Basic authentication, replace `--auth` with `--basic-auth` in the examples below, and omit the realm.
     63Using tracd with Apache .htpasswd files:
     65To create a .htpasswd file using htpasswd:
     68 $ sudo htpasswd -c /path/to/env/.htpasswd username
     70then for additional users:
     72 $ sudo htpasswd /path/to/env/.htpasswd username2
     74then for starting the tracd (on windows skip the "=" after --basic-auth):
     76 $ tracd -p 8080 --basic-auth=environmentname,/fullpath/environmentname/.htpasswd,/fullpath/environmentname /fullpath/environmentname
     79Tracd provides support for both Basic and Digest authentication. The default is to use Digest; to use Basic authentication, replace `--auth` with `--basic-auth` in the examples below. (You must still specify a dialogic "realm", which can be an empty string by trailing the BASICAUTH with a comma.)
    4081  ''Support for Basic authentication was added in version 0.9.''
    42 If the file `/path/to/users.htdigest` contains user accounts for project1 with the realm "", you'd use the following command-line to start tracd:
    43 {{{
    44  $ tracd -p 8080 --auth project1,/path/to/users.htdigest, /path/to/project1
    45 }}}
    47 '''Note''': the project "name" passed to the `--auth` option is the base name of the project environment directory.
     83The general format for using authentication is (on windows skip the "=" after --auth):
     86 $ tracd -p port --auth=base_project_dir,password_file_path,realm project_path
     91 * '''base_project_dir''' is the base directory of the project; note: this doesn't refer to the project name, and it is case-sensitive even for windows environments
     92 * '''password_file_path''' path of the password file
     93 * '''realm''' realm
     94 * '''project_path''' path of the project
     96Example (on windows skip the "=" after --auth):
     99 $ tracd -p 8080 \
     100   --auth=project1,/path/to/users.htdigest, /path/to/project1
    49102Of course, the digest file can be be shared so that it is used for more than one project:
    51104 $ tracd -p 8080 \
    52    --auth project1,/path/to/users.htdigest, \
    53    --auth project2,/path/to/users.htdigest, \
     105   --auth=project1,/path/to/users.htdigest, \
     106   --auth=project2,/path/to/users.htdigest, \
    54107   /path/to/project1 /path/to/project2
    60113 $ tracd -p 8080 \
    61    --auth *,/path/to/users.htdigest, \
     114   --auth="*",/path/to/users.htdigest, \
    62115   /path/to/project1 /path/to/project2
     117If using the `-s` parameter for serving a Trac environment from the root of a domain, one must use `*` for the project name
    65119== How to set up an htdigest password file ==
    76131from optparse import OptionParser
    77 import md5
     132# The md5 module is deprecated in Python 2.5
     134    from hashlib import md5
     135except ImportError:
     136    from md5 import md5
     137realm = 'trac'
    79139# build the options
    84144parser.add_option("-p", "--password",action="store", dest="password", type = "string",
    85145                  help="the password to use")
     146parser.add_option("-r", "--realm",action="store", dest="realm", type = "string",
     147                  help="the realm in which to create the digest")
    86148(options, args) = parser.parse_args()
    89151if (options.username is None) or (options.password is None):
    90152   parser.error("You must supply both the username and password")
     153if (options.realm is not None):
     154   realm = options.realm
    92156# Generate the string to enter into the htdigest file
    93 realm = 'trac'
    94 kd = lambda x: md5.md5(':'.join(x)).hexdigest()
     157kd = lambda x: md5(':'.join(x)).hexdigest()
    95158print ':'.join((options.username, realm, kd([options.username, realm, options.password])))
    101 python -u username -p password >> c:\digest.txt
    102 python tracd --port 8000 --auth proj_name,c:\digest.txt,trac c:\path\to\proj_name
    103 }}}
     164 $ python -u username -p password >> c:\digest.txt
     165 $ tracd --port 8000 --auth=proj_name,c:\digest.txt,trac c:\path\to\proj_name
     168Note: If you would like to use --basic-auth you need to use htpasswd tool from apache server to generate .htpasswd file. The remaining part is similar but make sure to use empty realm (i.e. coma after path). When using on Windows make sure to use -m option for it (did not tested it on *nix, so not sure if that is the case there).  If you do not have Apache, [trac:source:/tags/trac-0.11b2/contrib/] may help.  (Note that it requires a `crypt` or `fcrypt` module; see the source comments for details.)
     170It is possible to use md5sum utility to generate digest-password file using such method:
     172 $ printf "${user}:trac:${password}" | md5sum - >>user.htdigest
     174and manually delete " -" from the end and add "${user}:trac:" to the start of line from 'to-file'.

    119190in the Wiki: `[/<project_name>/chrome/site/software-0.1.tar.gz]`
    121 The development version of Trac supports a new `htdocs:` TracLinks
     192Since 0.10, Trac supports a new `htdocs:` TracLinks
    122193syntax for the above. With this, the example link above can be written simply
     196=== Using apache rewrite rules ===
     197In some situations when you choose to use tracd behind apache, you might experience issues with redirects, like being redirected to URLs with the wrong host or protocol. In this case (and only in this case), setting the `[trac] use_base_url_for_redirect` to `true` can help, as this will force Trac to use the value of `[trac] base_url` for doing the redirects.
     199=== Serving a different base path than / ===
     200Tracd supports serving projects with different base urls than /<project>. The parameter name to change this is
     202 $ tracd --base-path=/some/path
