 v2 == Creating an Environment == A new Trac environment is created using  [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin]: A new Trac environment is created using  [TracAdmin#initenv trac-admin's initenv]: {{{ \$ trac-admin /path/to/myproject initenv }}} [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] will ask you for the name of the project and the trac-admin will ask you for the name of the project and the database connection string (explained below). ''Note: The user under which the web server runs will require file system write permission to the environment directory and all the files inside. Please remember to set the appropriate permissions. The same applies to the source code repository, although the user under which Trac runs will only require write access to a Subversion repository created with the BDB file system ; for other repository types, check the corresponding plugin's documentation. Also, it seems that project names with spaces can be problematic for authentication (see [trac:#7163]).'' === Some Useful Tips - The user under which the web server runs will require file system write permission to the environment directory and all the files inside. Please remember to set the appropriate permissions. The same applies to the source code repository, although the user under which Trac runs will only require write access to a Subversion repository created with the BDB file system; for other repository types, check the corresponding plugin's documentation. - initenv, when using an svn repository, does not imply that trac-admin will perform svnadmin create for the specified repository path. You need to perform the svnadmin create prior to trac-admin initenv if you're creating a new svn repository altogether with a new trac environment, otherwise you will see a message "Warning: couldn't index the repository" when initializing the environment. ''Note: "initenv" when using svn repository does not imply that trac-admin will perform "svnadmin create" for the specified repository path. You need to perform the "svnadmin create" prior to trac-admin initenv if you're creating a new svn repository altogether with a new trac environment, otherwise you will see a message "Warning: couldn't index the repository" when initializing the environment.'' - Non-ascii environment paths are not supported - Also, it seems that project names with spaces can be problematic for authentication (see [trac:#7163]). - TracPlugins located in a [TracIni#inherit-section shared plugins folder] that is defined in an [TracIni#GlobalConfiguration inherited configuration] are currently not loaded during creation, and hence, if they need to create extra tables for example, you'll need to [TracUpgrade#UpgradetheTracEnvironment upgrade the environment] before being able to use it. == Database Connection Strings == * db * trac.db - The SQLite database (if you're using SQLite). * htdocs - directory containing web resources, which can be referenced in Genshi templates. '''''(since 0.11)''''' * htdocs - directory containing web resources, which can be referenced in Genshi templates using /htdocs/site/... URLs. ''(since 0.11)'' * log - default directory for log files, if logging is turned on and a relative path is given. * plugins - Environment-specific [wiki:TracPlugins plugins] (Python eggs or single file plugins, since [trac:milestone:0.10 0.10]) * templates - Custom Genshi environment-specific templates. '''''(since 0.11)''''' * templates - Custom Genshi environment-specific templates. ''(since 0.11)'' * site.html - method to customize header, footer, and style, described in TracInterfaceCustomization#SiteAppearance ---- See also: TracAdmin, TracBackup, TracIni, TracGuide
