This Howto describe how you setup a Trac System based on the Apache2 with mod_python and >= Subversion 1.4 with multiple repositories. I will not describe howto make the installations of it. It only completes some other howtos. For my configuration I use the mod_python for the apache2. (should be 10 times faster than cgi or fastcgi)
- Apache2 >= 2.0
- mod_python >= 3.3.1
- Subversion >= 1.4
- Trac >= 0.10.4
If you have already an exists reporistory in /var/svn you have to move it to an another folder.
mv /var/svn/* /var/svn_backup/repos1
emerge --config subversion
Now we should see this.
ls -l /var/svn
svn-trac-server ~ # ls -l /var/svn/ total 0 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 152 Feb 15 16:25 conf drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 224 Feb 15 11:37 repos
Lets create some repositories first and then setup it.
svn-admin create /var/svn/repos1
svn-admin create /var/svn/repos2
svn-admin create /var/svn/repos3
Now we have three repositories created and will now setup all to one authentification and authorization file. For that we have to edit all three "svnserve.conf" files in the "conf" directory of a repository.
[general] anon-access = none # or read or write auth-access = write password-db = /var/svn/conf/passwd authz-db = /var/svn/conf/authz realm = Repos1 SVN Repository
So that we do it for all the other repositories, too. Then we will setup the authentification and authorization.
[users] user1 = password1 user2 = password2 user3 = password3 user4 = password4 user5 = password5
Now go into the authz file
[groups] group_repos1_read = user1, user2 group_repos1_write = user3, user4 group_repos2_read = user1, user4 ### Global Right for all repositories ### [/] ### Could be a superadmin or something else ### user5 = rw ### Global Rights for one repository (e.g. repos1) ### [repos1:/] @group_repos1_read = r @group_repos1_write = rw ### Repository folder specific rights (e.g. the trunk folder) ### [repos1:/trunk] user1 = rw ### And soon for the other repositories ### [repos2:/] @group_repos2_read = r user3 = rw
So now we can start|restart the svnserve daemon.
Now we should be able to check out and commit to our seperated repostories.
cd /home/workspace/repos1 && svn co <server>/repos1
And soon ;)
The next step is to setup the trac system.
Install "trac" over portage. Then create a trac env with the trac-admin tool.
trac-admin /var/lib/trac/repos1 initenv
And the last step is to configure the apache2 webserver. In this way the DAV support is available too, but is need less because the Trac has its own SVN Source Browser.
<IfModule mpm_peruser_module> ServerEnvironment apache apache </IfModule> <LocationMatch "/trac"> SetEnv PYTHON_EGG_CACHE /tmp SetHandler mod_python PythonHandler trac.web.modpython_frontend PythonOption TracEnvParentDir /var/lib/trac PythonOption TracUriRoot /trac/ </LocationMatch> <LocationMatch "/trac/[^/]+/login"> AuthType Basic AuthName "Trac Server" AuthUserFile /var/svn/conf/svnusers Require valid-user </LocationMatch>
Now we create all needed user for the Apache Authentification
htpasswd2 -c -s -b /var/svn/conf/svnusers user1 password1
htpasswd2 -s -b /var/svn/conf/svnusers user2 password2
htpasswd2 -s -b /var/svn/conf/svnusers user3 password3
htpasswd2 -s -b /var/svn/conf/svnusers user4 password4
htpasswd2 -s -b /var/svn/conf/svnusers user5 password5
Now you should have run a trac system over the Apache2 and his authentification method "Basic" (not secure ;) ). But other e.g LDAP or something else are possible.
Note: that trac need a trac admin for every trac-enviroment.
trac-admin /var/lib/trac/repos1/ permission add user5 TRAC_ADMIN
trac-admin /var/lib/trac/repos3/ permission add user3 TRAC_ADMIN
Note: mixed database backends (sqlite or postgresql) for the diffrent enviroments are possible.
Note: for sqlite user the apache2 daemon need write permissions on the sqlite db file
You can reach all trac system over the direct url path or you open the root path where trac will show a list with all avalible projects in this root path.
