    v2 v3  
    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 ==
     
    4243== Installing as a Windows Service ==
    4344
     45=== Option 1 ===
    4446To install as a Windows service, get the [http://www.google.com/search?q=srvany.exe SRVANY] utility and run:
    4547{{{
     
    5860The spacing here is important.
    5961
     62For Windows 7 User, srvany.exe may not be an option, so you can use [http://www.google.com/search?q=winserv.exe WINSERV] utility and run:
     63{{{
     64"C:\path\to\winserv.exe" install tracd -displayname "tracd" -start auto "C:\path\to\python.exe" c:\path\to\python\scripts\tracd-script.py <your tracd parameters>"
     65
     66net start tracd
     67}}}
     68
     69=== Option 2 ===
     70
     71Use [http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/WindowsServiceScript WindowsServiceScript], available at [http://trac-hacks.org/ Trac Hacks]. Installs, removes, starts, stops, etc. your Trac service.
     72
    6073== Using Authentication ==
    61 
    62 Using tracd with Apache .htpasswd files:
    63 
    64 To create a .htpasswd file using htpasswd:
    65 
    66 {{{
    67 sudo htpasswd -c /path/to/env/.htpasswd username
     74`tracd` provides support for both Basic and Digest authentication. The default is to use Digest.
     75
     76  ''Support for Basic authentication was added in version 0.9.''
     77
     78The general format for using authentication is (replace `--auth` with `--basic-auth` if you want to use Basic auth):
     79
     80{{{
     81 $ tracd -p port --auth="base_project_dir,password_file_path,realm" project_path
     82}}}
     83
     84where:
     85
     86 * '''base_project_dir''': the base directory of the project specified as follows:
     87   * when serving multiple projects: ''relative'' to the `project_bath`
     88   * when serving only a single project (`-s`): the name of the project directory
     89 Don't use an absolute path here as this won't work. ''Note:'' This parameter is case-sensitive even for environments on Windows.
     90 * '''password_file_path''': path to the password file
     91 * '''realm''': the realm name (can be anything)
     92 * '''project_path''': path of the project
     93
     94Examples:
     95
     96{{{
     97 $ tracd -p 8080 \
     98   --auth="project1,/path/to/passwordfile,mycompany.com" /path/to/project1
     99}}}
     100
     101Of course, the password file can be be shared so that it is used for more than one project:
     102{{{
     103 $ tracd -p 8080 \
     104   --auth="project1,/path/to/passwordfile,mycompany.com" \
     105   --auth="project2,/path/to/passwordfile,mycompany.com" \
     106   /path/to/project1 /path/to/project2
     107}}}
     108
     109Another way to share the password file is to specify "*" for the project name:
     110{{{
     111 $ tracd -p 8080 \
     112   --auth="*,/path/to/users.htdigest,mycompany.com" \
     113   /path/to/project1 /path/to/project2
     114}}}
     115
     116=== Using a htpasswd password file ===
     117This section describes how to use `tracd` with Apache .htpasswd files.
     118
     119To create a .htpasswd file use Apache's `htpasswd` command (see [#GeneratingPasswordsWithoutApache below] for a method to create these files without using Apache):
     120
     121{{{
     122 $ sudo htpasswd -c /path/to/env/.htpasswd username
    68123}}}
    69124then for additional users:
    70125{{{
    71 sudo htpasswd /path/to/env/.htpasswd username2
    72 }}}
    73 then for starting the tracd:
    74 {{{
    75 tracd -p 8080 --basic-auth=environmentname,/fullpath/environmentname/.htpasswd,/fullpath/environmentname /fullpath/environmentname
    76 }}}
    77 
    78 
    79 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. (You must still specify a dialogic "realm", which can be an empty string by trailing the BASICAUTH with a comma.)
    80 
    81   ''Support for Basic authentication was added in version 0.9.''
    82 
    83 The general format for using authentication is:
    84 
    85 {{{
    86  $ tracd -p port --auth=base_project_dir,password_file_path,realm project_path
    87 }}}
    88 
    89 where:
    90 
    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
    95 
    96 Example:
    97 
    98 {{{
    99  $ tracd -p 8080 \
    100    --auth=project1,/path/to/users.htdigest,mycompany.com /path/to/project1
    101 }}}
    102 Of course, the digest file can be be shared so that it is used for more than one project:
    103 {{{
    104  $ tracd -p 8080 \
    105    --auth=project1,/path/to/users.htdigest,mycompany.com \
    106    --auth=project2,/path/to/users.htdigest,mycompany.com \
    107    /path/to/project1 /path/to/project2
    108 }}}
    109 
    110 Another way to share the digest file is to specify "*"
    111 for the project name:
    112 {{{
    113  $ tracd -p 8080 \
    114    --auth="*",/path/to/users.htdigest,mycompany.com \
    115    /path/to/project1 /path/to/project2
    116 }}}
    117 If using the `-s` parameter for serving a Trac environment from the root of a domain, one must use `*` for the project name
    118 
    119 == How to set up an htdigest password file ==
     126 $ sudo htpasswd /path/to/env/.htpasswd username2
     127}}}
     128
     129Then to start `tracd` run something like this:
     130
     131{{{
     132 $ tracd -p 8080 --basic-auth="projectdirname,/fullpath/environmentname/.htpasswd,realmname" /fullpath/environmentname
     133}}}
     134
     135For example:
     136
     137{{{
     138 $ tracd -p 8080 --basic-auth="testenv,/srv/tracenv/testenv/.htpasswd,My Test Env" /srv/tracenv/testenv
     139}}}
     140
     141''Note:'' You might need to pass "-m" as a parameter to htpasswd on some platforms (OpenBSD).
     142
     143=== Using a htdigest password file ===
    120144
    121145If you have Apache available, you can use the htdigest command to generate the password file. Type 'htdigest' to get some usage instructions, or read [http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/programs/htdigest.html this page] from the Apache manual to get precise instructions.  You'll be prompted for a password to enter for each user that you create.  For the name of the password file, you can use whatever you like, but if you use something like `users.htdigest` it will remind you what the file contains. As a suggestion, put it in your <projectname>/conf folder along with the [TracIni trac.ini] file.
     
    123147Note that you can start tracd without the --auth argument, but if you click on the ''Login'' link you will get an error.

     149=== Generating Passwords Without Apache ===
    126150
    127151If you don't have Apache available, you can use this simple Python script to generate your passwords:
     
    162186
    163187{{{
    164 python trac-digest.py -u username -p password >> c:\digest.txt
    165 tracd --port 8000 --auth=proj_name,c:\digest.txt,trac c:\path\to\proj_name
     188 $ python trac-digest.py -u username -p password >> c:\digest.txt
     189 $ tracd --port 8000 --auth=proj_name,c:\digest.txt,trac c:\path\to\proj_name
    166190}}}
