     1= The Trac Configuration File = 
     2 
     3[[TracGuideToc]] 
     4[[PageOutline]] 
     5 
     6Trac configuration is done by editing the '''`trac.ini`''' config file, located in `<projectenv>/conf/trac.ini`.  Changes to the configuration are usually reflected immediately, though changes to the `[components]` or `[logging]` sections will require restarting the web server. You may also need to restart the web server after creating a global configuration file when none was previously present. 
     7 
     8The `trac.ini` configuration file and its parent directory should be writable by the web server, as Trac currently relies on the possibility to trigger a complete environment reload to flush its caches. 
     9 
     10== Global Configuration == 
     11 
     12In versions prior to 0.11, the global configuration was by default located in `$prefix/share/trac/conf/trac.ini` or /etc/trac/trac.ini, depending on the distribution. If you're upgrading, you may want to specify that file to inherit from.  Literally, when you're upgrading to 0.11, you have to add an `[inherit]` section to your project's `trac.ini` file. Additionally, you have to move your customized templates and common images from `$prefix/share/trac/...` to the new location. 
     13 
     14Global options will be merged with the environment-specific options, where local options override global options. The options file is specified as follows: 
     15{{{ 
     16[inherit] 
     17file = /path/to/global/trac.ini 
     18}}} 
     19Multiple files can be specified using a comma-separated list. 
     20 
     21Note that you can also specify a global option file when creating a new project,  by adding the option `--inherit=/path/to/global/trac.ini` to [TracAdmin#initenv trac-admin]'s `initenv` command.  If you do not do this but nevertheless intend to use a global option file with your new environment, you will have to go through the newly generated `conf/trac.ini` file and delete the entries that will otherwise override those set in the global file. 
     22 
     23There are two more entries in the [[#inherit-section| [inherit] ]] section, `templates_dir` for sharing global templates and `plugins_dir`, for sharing plugins. Those entries can themselves be specified in the shared configuration file, and in fact, configuration files can even be chained if you specify another `[inherit] file` there. 
     24 
     25Note that the templates found in the `templates/` directory of the TracEnvironment have precedence over those found in `[inherit] templates_dir`. In turn, the latter have precedence over the installed templates, so be careful about what you put there, notably if you override a default template be sure to refresh your modifications when you upgrade to a new version of Trac (the preferred way to perform TracInterfaceCustomization being still to write a custom plugin doing an appropriate `ITemplateStreamFilter` transformation). 
     26 
     27== Reference for settings 
     28 
     29This is a brief reference of available configuration options, and their default settings. 
     30 
     31[[TracIni]] 
     32 
     33== Reference for special sections 
     34[[PageOutline(3,,inline)]] 
     35 
     36=== [components] === #components-section 
     37This section is used to enable or disable components provided by plugins, as well as by Trac itself. The component to enable/disable is specified via the name of the option. Whether its enabled is determined by the option value; setting the value to `enabled` or `on` will enable the component, any other value (typically `disabled` or `off`) will disable the component. 
     38 
     39The option name is either the fully qualified name of the components or the module/package prefix of the component. The former enables/disables a specific component, while the latter enables/disables any component in the specified package/module. 
     40 
     41Consider the following configuration snippet: 
     42{{{ 
     43[components] 
     44trac.ticket.report.ReportModule = disabled 
     45webadmin.* = enabled 
     46}}} 
     47 
     48The first option tells Trac to disable the [wiki:TracReports report module]. The second option instructs Trac to enable all components in the `webadmin` package. Note that the trailing wildcard is required for module/package matching. 
     49 
     50See the ''Plugins'' page on ''About Trac'' to get the list of active components (requires `CONFIG_VIEW` [wiki:TracPermissions permissions].) 
     51 
     52See also: TracPlugins 
     53 
     54=== [extra-permissions] === #extra-permissions-section 
     55''(since 0.12)'' 
     56 
     57Custom additional permissions can be defined in this section when [wiki:ExtraPermissionsProvider] is enabled. 
     58 
     59=== [milestone-groups] === #milestone-groups-section 
     60''(since 0.11)'' 
     61 
     62As the workflow for tickets is now configurable, there can be many ticket states, 
     63and simply displaying closed tickets vs. all the others is maybe not appropriate  
     64in all cases. This section enables one to easily create ''groups'' of states  
     65that will be shown in different colors in the milestone progress bar. 
     66 
     67Example configuration (the default only has closed and active): 
     68{{{ 
     69closed = closed 
     70# sequence number in the progress bar 
     71closed.order = 0 
     72# optional extra param for the query (two additional columns: created and modified and sort on created) 
     73closed.query_args = group=resolution,order=time,col=id,col=summary,col=owner,col=type,col=priority,col=component,col=severity,col=time,col=changetime 
     74# indicates groups that count for overall completion percentage 
     75closed.overall_completion = true 
     76 
     77new = new 
     78new.order = 1 
     79new.css_class = new 
     80new.label = new 
     81 
     82# one catch-all group is allowed 
     83active = * 
     84active.order = 2 
     85# CSS class for this interval 
     86active.css_class = open 
     87# Displayed label for this group 
     88active.label = in progress 
     89}}} 
     90 
     91The definition consists in a comma-separated list of accepted status. 
     92Also, '*' means any status and could be used to associate all remaining 
     93states to one catch-all group. 
     94 
     95The CSS class can be one of: new (yellow), open (no color) or 
     96closed (green). New styles can easily be added using the following 
     97selector:  `table.progress td.<class>` 
     98 
     99=== [repositories] === #repositories-section 
     100 
     101(''since 0.12'' multirepos) 
     102 
     103One of the alternatives for registering new repositories is to populate the `[repositories]` section of the trac.ini. 
     104 
     105This is especially suited for setting up convenience aliases, short-lived repositories, or during the initial phases of an installation. 
     106 
     107See [TracRepositoryAdmin#Intrac.ini TracRepositoryAdmin] for details about the format adopted for this section and the rest of that page for the other alternatives. 
     108 
     109=== [svn:externals] === #svn:externals-section 
     110''(since 0.11)'' 
     111 
     112The TracBrowser for Subversion can interpret the `svn:externals` property of folders. 
     113By default, it only turns the URLs into links as Trac can't browse remote repositories. 
     114 
     115However, if you have another Trac instance (or an other repository browser like [http://www.viewvc.org/ ViewVC]) configured to browse the target repository, then you can instruct Trac which other repository browser to use for which external URL. 
     116 
     117This mapping is done in the `[svn:externals]` section of the TracIni 
     118 
     119Example: 
     120{{{ 
     121[svn:externals] 
     1221 = svn://server/repos1                       http://trac/proj1/browser/$path?rev=$rev 
     1232 = svn://server/repos2                       http://trac/proj2/browser/$path?rev=$rev 
     1243 = http://theirserver.org/svn/eng-soft       http://ourserver/viewvc/svn/$path/?pathrev=25914 
     1254 = svn://anotherserver.com/tools_repository  http://ourserver/tracs/tools/browser/$path?rev=$rev 
     126}}} 
     127With the above, the `svn://anotherserver.com/tools_repository/tags/1.1/tools` external will be mapped to `http://ourserver/tracs/tools/browser/tags/1.1/tools?rev=` (and `rev` will be set to the appropriate revision number if the external additionally specifies a revision, see the [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.advanced.externals.html SVN Book on externals] for more details). 
     128 
     129Note that the number used as a key in the above section is purely used as a place holder, as the URLs themselves can't be used as a key due to various limitations in the configuration file parser. 
     130 
     131Finally, the relative URLs introduced in [http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.5_releasenotes.html#externals Subversion 1.5] are not yet supported. 
     132 
     133=== [ticket-custom] === #ticket-custom-section 
     134 
     135In this section, you can define additional fields for tickets. See TracTicketsCustomFields for more details. 
     136 
     137=== [ticket-workflow] === #ticket-workflow-section 
     138''(since 0.11)'' 
     139 
     140The workflow for tickets is controlled by plugins.  
     141By default, there's only a `ConfigurableTicketWorkflow` component in charge.  
     142That component allows the workflow to be configured via this section in the trac.ini file. 
     143See TracWorkflow for more details.
