Installing trac

software development

#1

i’m trying to get trac set up…

http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/DreamTracInstall

i used that and got up to where it says to type:

trac-admin $HOME/trac_sites/{your project id} initenv

and i get this error:

Initenv for ‘/home/tempvince/trac_sites/FPP’ failed.
Does an environment already exist?

has anybody here used DreamTracInstall before? any idea what i’m doing wrong?


#2

well, i’ve figured out how to fix that and everything’s installed apparently

but i get here:


STEP 6

Point your browser to your trac subdomain. Trac has been installed and is running on fcgi.

and when i go there i get this:

#!/bin/bash
export HOME="/home/not_my_real_username"
export TRAC_ENV="/home/not_my_real_username/trac_sites/myproject"
export PYTHONPATH="/home/not_my_real_username/packages/lib/python2.3/site-packages"
export PATH="/home/not_my_real_username/packages/bin:/home/not_my_real_username/packages/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/games"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/home/not_my_real_username/packages/lib"
exec /home/not_my_real_username/packages/share/trac/cgi-bin/trac.fcgi

any ideas?


#3

figured it out… didn’t have fastcgi enabled

thanks for the help guys :smiley:

seriously though, i think i’m gonna add that to the DreamTracInstall page. i’m sure others may come across this problem as well

phew, how relieving!
