  • TracStandalone

    v1 v2  
    8484Use [ WindowsServiceScript], available at [ Trac Hacks]. Installs, removes, starts, stops, etc. your Trac service. 
     86=== Option 3 === 
     88also cygwin's cygrunsrv.exe can be used: 
     90$ cygrunsrv --install tracd --path /cygdrive/c/Python27/Scripts/tracd.exe --args '--port 8000 --env-parent-dir E:\IssueTrackers\Trac\Projects' 
     91$ net start tracd 
    8694== Using Authentication == 
    88 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.) 
     96Tracd allows you to run Trac without the need for Apache, but you can take advantage of Apache's password tools (htpasswd and htdigest) to easily create a password file in the proper format for tracd to use in authentication. (It is also possible to create the password file without htpasswd or htdigest; see below for alternatives) 
     98Tracd provides support for both Basic and Digest authentication. Digest is considered more secure. The examples below use Digest; to use Basic authentication, replace `--auth` with `--basic-auth` in the command line. 
    91100The general format for using authentication is: 
    93102 $ tracd -p port --auth="base_project_dir,password_file_path,realm" project_path 
    98105 * '''base_project_dir''': the base directory of the project specified as follows: 
    99106   * when serving multiple projects: ''relative'' to the `project_path` 
    103110 * '''realm''': the realm name (can be anything) 
    104111 * '''project_path''': path of the project 
    105  * **`--auth`** in the above means use Digest authentication, replace `--auth` with `--basic-auth` if you want to use Basic auth 
     113 * **`--auth`** in the above means use Digest authentication, replace `--auth` with `--basic-auth` if you want to use Basic auth.  Although Basic authentication does not require a "realm", the command parser does, so the second comma is required, followed directly by the closing quote for an empty realm name. 
    129 === Using a htpasswd password file === 
     137=== Basic Authorization: Using a htpasswd password file === 
    130138This section describes how to use `tracd` with Apache .htpasswd files. 
     140  Note: It is necessary (at least with Python 2.6) to install the fcrypt package in order to 
     141  decode some htpasswd formats.  Trac source code attempt an `import crypt` first, but there 
     142  is no such package for Python 2.6. Only `SHA-1` passwords (since Trac 1.0) work without this module. 
    132144To create a .htpasswd file use Apache's `htpasswd` command (see [#GeneratingPasswordsWithoutApache below] for a method to create these files without using Apache): 
    135146 $ sudo htpasswd -c /path/to/env/.htpasswd username 
    142153Then to start `tracd` run something like this: 
    145155 $ tracd -p 8080 --basic-auth="projectdirname,/fullpath/environmentname/.htpasswd,realmname" /fullpath/environmentname 
    148158For example: 
    151160 $ tracd -p 8080 --basic-auth="testenv,/srv/tracenv/testenv/.htpasswd,My Test Env" /srv/tracenv/testenv 
    154162''Note:'' You might need to pass "-m" as a parameter to htpasswd on some platforms (OpenBSD). 
    156 === Using a htdigest password file === 
     164=== Digest authentication: Using a htdigest password file === 
    158166If you have Apache available, you can use the htdigest command to generate the password file. Type 'htdigest' to get some usage instructions, or read [ 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. 
    160 Note that you can start tracd without the --auth argument, but if you click on the ''Login'' link you will get an error. 
     168Note that you can start tracd without the `--auth` argument, but if you click on the ''Login'' link you will get an error. 
    162170=== Generating Passwords Without Apache === 
    164 If you don't have Apache available, you can use this simple Python script to generate your passwords: 
     172Basic Authorization can be accomplished via this [ online HTTP Password generator] which also supports `SHA-1`.  Copy the generated password-hash line to the .htpasswd file on your system. Note that Windows Python lacks the "crypt" module that is the default hash type for htpasswd ; Windows Python can grok MD5 password hashes just fine and you should use MD5. 
     174You can use this simple Python script to generate a '''digest''' password file: 
    198 Note: If you use the above script you must use the --auth option to tracd, not --basic-auth, and you must set the realm in the --auth value to 'trac' (without the quotes). Example usage (assuming you saved the script as 
     208Note: If you use the above script you must set the realm in the `--auth` argument to '''`trac`'''. Example usage (assuming you saved the script as 
    206 Note: If you would like to use --basic-auth you need to use htpasswd tool from apache server to generate .htpasswd file. The remaining part is similar but make sure to use empty realm (i.e. coma after path). Make sure to use -m option for it.  If you do not have Apache, [trac:source:/tags/trac-0.11/contrib/] may help.  (Note that it requires a `crypt` or `fcrypt` module; see the source comments for details.) 
    208 It is possible to use md5sum utility to generate digest-password file using such method: 
    209 {{{ 
    210  $ printf "${user}:trac:${password}" | md5sum - >>user.htdigest 
    211 }}} 
    212 and manually delete " -" from the end and add "${user}:trac:" to the start of line from 'to-file'. 
     215==== Using `md5sum` 
     216It is possible to use `md5sum` utility to generate digest-password file: 
     222echo ${user}:${realm}:$(printf "${user}:${realm}:${password}" | md5sum - | sed -e 's/\s\+-//') > ${path_to_file}

     288=== Authentication for tracd behind a proxy 
     289It is convenient to provide central external authentication to your tracd instances, instead of using {{{--basic-auth}}}. There is some discussion about this in #9206. 
     291Below is example configuration based on Apache 2.2, mod_proxy, mod_authnz_ldap. 
     293First we bring tracd into Apache's location namespace. 
     296<Location /project/proxified> 
     297        Require ldap-group cn=somegroup, ou=Groups, 
     298        Require ldap-user somespecificusertoo 
     299        ProxyPass http://localhost:8101/project/proxified/ 
     300        # Turns out we don't really need complicated RewriteRules here at all 
     301        RequestHeader set REMOTE_USER %{REMOTE_USER}s 
     305Then we need a single file plugin to recognize HTTP_REMOTE_USER header as valid authentication source. HTTP headers like '''HTTP_FOO_BAR''' will get converted to '''Foo-Bar''' during processing. Name it something like '''''' and drop it into '''proxified/plugins''' directory: 
     308from trac.core import * 
     309from trac.config import BoolOption 
     310from trac.web.api import IAuthenticator 
     312class MyRemoteUserAuthenticator(Component): 
     314    implements(IAuthenticator) 
     316    obey_remote_user_header = BoolOption('trac', 'obey_remote_user_header', 'false',  
     317               """Whether the 'Remote-User:' HTTP header is to be trusted for user logins  
     318                (''since ??.??').""")  
     320    def authenticate(self, req): 
     321        if self.obey_remote_user_header and req.get_header('Remote-User'):  
     322            return req.get_header('Remote-User')  
     323        return None 
     327Add this new parameter to your TracIni: 
     332obey_remote_user_header = true 
     336Run tracd: 
     338tracd -p 8101 -r -s proxified --base-path=/project/proxified 
     341Note that if you want to install this plugin for all projects, you have to put it in your [TracPlugins#Plugindiscovery global plugins_dir] and enable it in your global trac.ini. 
     343Global config (e.g. `/srv/trac/conf/trac.ini`): 
     346remote-user-auth.* = enabled 
     348plugins_dir = /srv/trac/plugins 
     350obey_remote_user_header = true 
     353Environment config (e.g. `/srv/trac/envs/myenv`): 
     356file = /srv/trac/conf/trac.ini 
    269359=== Serving a different base path than / === 
    270360Tracd supports serving projects with different base urls than /<project>. The parameter name to change this is
