'''Steps to get Trac working on your computer from commandline'''

<!> ''I ommited the full path to the dir where i installed my Trac instance, so instead of reading the whole path, you'll only see {{{path/to/MhzProjects/}}}''

 * Decide where you'd like to run SVN and Trac. In my case, I decided to use a dir called {{{MhzSvn}}} and one called {{{MhzTrac}}}, both under {{{MhzProjects/}}}. So {{{cd}}} to that dir
$ cd path/to/MhzProjects/

 * Install Trac and say {{{Y}}} to install everything needed (apache, svn and some python stuff)
$ sudo apt-get install trac


 * Create a dir for SVN to work with Trac, then {{{ls}}} to see what SVN just created for you
$ svnadmin create MhzSvn

$ ls MhzSvn/
conf dav db format hooks locks README.txt

 * Let Trac create everything for you. I decided to call my trac ''MhzStuff''
/path/to/MhzProjects $ trac-admin MhzTrac initenv
Creating a new Trac environment at path/to/MhzProjects/MhzTrac

Trac will first ask a few questions about your environment
in order to initalize and prepare the project database.

 Please enter the name of your project.
 This name will be used in page titles and descriptions.

Project Name [My Project]> MhzStuff

 Please specify the absolute path to the project Subversion repository.
 Repository must be local, and trac-admin requires read+write
 permission to initialize the Trac database.

Path to repository [/var/svn/test]> path/to/MhzProjects/MhzSvn/

 Please enter location of Trac page templates.
 Default is the location of the site-wide templates installed with Trac.

Templates directory [/usr/share/trac/templates]>

 Indexing repository

Project database for 'MhzStuff' created.

 Customize settings for your project using the command:

   trac-admin /path/to/MhzProjects/MhzTrac

 Don't forget, you also need to copy (or symlink) "trac/cgi-bin/trac.cgi"
 to you web server's /cgi-bin/ directory, and then configure the server.

 If you're using Apache, this config example snippet might be helpful:

    Alias /trac "/wherever/you/installed/trac/htdocs/"
    <Location "/cgi-bin/trac.cgi">
        SetEnv TRAC_ENV "path/to/Work/MhzProjects/MhzTrac"

    # You need something like this to authenticate users
    <Location "/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/login">
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "MhzStuff"
        AuthUserFile /somewhere/trac.htpasswd
        Require valid-user

 The latest documentation can also always be found on the project website:

 * Add these lines at the end of the file
Alias /trac "/usr/share/trac/htdocs"
    <Location "/cgi-bin/trac.cgi">
        SetEnv TRAC_ENV "path/to/MhzProjects/MhzTrac"

 * Re-start apache
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

 * Start Trac
tracd --port 8000 path/to/MhzProjects/MhzTrac/

 * Open your browser and visit {{{http://localhost:8000}}}
