Howto setup a trac instance at a differnt machine than the subversion repository.

This is not directly foreseen (at least for trac 0.11.x), so we have to work around this problem. The trick here is to create a local copy of the main repository which is syncronized as described in . My idea is to use the post commit hook on the main subversion repository to trigger the synchronization of the cloned repository. This should keep both repositories synchronized all the time. *This has to be tested. Starting svnsync manually on the machine with the cloned svn repository works as expected.* *The first sync of the repository takes some hours. Meanwhile we have approx. 10000 revisions in the repository.*

The installation of the cloned svn repository and trac are done both on lxir039.

Trac was installed using the normal Debian package installation mechanism. I installed the following packages sudo apt-get install sqlite sudo apt-get -t sid install sqlite3

After the installation on has to copy the trac installation of fairroot from lxwww01 to the new directory on the new machine.

scp -r uhlig@lxwww01:/srv/subversion/trac/fairroot/* .

Since the location of the subversion repository has changed this information has to be changed also in the configuration file trac.ini.

repository_dir =  /var/subversion/fairroot

has to be changed to

repository_dir = /data.local1/subversion/fairroot

Probably also the location of the pasword file has to be changed.

After this is done one has to upgrade first the sqlite database to the new sqlite version and the upgrade trac itself.

mv trac.db trac2.db
sqlite trac2.db .dump | sqlite3 trac.db
trac-admin /data.local1/trac/fairroot upgrade
trac-admin . wiki upgrade
trac-admin . resync

The trac configuration works as described in

trac-admin /data_local1/trac/fairroot initenv

For the test I don't want to install and administrate a full blown webserver. So the internal trac webserver is started

 tracd --port 8000 /path/to/myproject
