Trac on Dreamhost: I DARE YOU!

apps

#1

I have tried for a week now to get it going. No can do. I have read the wiki entries and the articles by natmaster. His latest one installs no problem (if I downgrade SVN, else I get an SVN configure --with-apache error). But it wont be accessible on the web. Period. The error logs

[Sun Jan 28 07:56:20 2007] [error] [client 24.239.151.1] FastCGI: comm with (dynamic) server “/home/izk/trac.exd-dev.com/index.fcgi” aborted: (first read) idle timeout (60 sec)
[Sun Jan 28 07:56:20 2007] [error] [client 24.239.151.1] FastCGI: incomplete headers (0 bytes) received from server “/home/izk/trac.exd-dev.com/index.fcgi”

No, its not a file permissions issue, checked that.

I have read the posts. There seem to be only questions but no answers. Either there are no solutions or once people solve the issue they never share their results. In either case my conclusion is this:

YOU CAN"T RUN TRAC ON DREAMHOST.

You may think otherwise… so, I DARE YOU TO PROVE IT. Help us out and show to the community how you got past these issues to get trac to run.
