trac-0.11 installation error

Reported by: incanus@… Owned by: danielluke (Daniel J. Luke)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: trac cgi Cc: incanus@…


After upgrade from trac-0.10.4 to 0.11, it seems like some of the files are missing. Removing and reinstalling has the same effect. At the very least, trac.cgi is missing, which is what brought it to my attention since I was using CGI mode. Build log attached.

I don't believe that trac.[f]cgi is included in 0.11.

Looks like there's a template for one in /opt/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/trac/admin/templates/

I'll take a look at this more soon, though and make sure.

Oh, I found the answer.

It's /opt/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/trac/web/

(where /opt/local is whatever you have PREFIX set to).

I still think that there are some major changes that are not allowing proper CGI operation, at least as packaged with MacPorts. If you look at the discussion here, there are bigger changes afoot that may require some specific MacPorts setup. At the very least, after upgrading to 0.11 in MacPorts and spending at least an hour on things, my Trac environment is still not working in CGI mode. Some sort of migration or upgrade needs to happen, though just what I can't figure out, but MacPorts did not do it for me, which seems a little inconvenient.

Not meant to criticize, just draw attention to this. Since writing this guide, I have been contacted by several others with similar confusion.

I don't see how this requires MacPorts setup.

The thread you linked to includes the command you run to get the cgi/fcgi/wscgi scripts that are set up for a particular trac environment.

Since MacPorts has no idea where your trac environment is set up (and how you're running it), I don't see how it can handle this for you. People run trac with tracd, cgi, fast_cgi, wscgi, and mod_python.

Of course, if you can think of something specific that could be made better (and especially if you can send a patch), I'm happy to improve the port.

As far as I can tell, what really needs updating is the documentation on Edgewall's site.

Fair enough -- I'll keep at it and try to contribute if I can figure this out. Thanks for your help.
