    v3 v4  
    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 ==
     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)
    8898Tracd 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.
    128138This 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.
    130144To create a .htpasswd file use Apache's `htpasswd` command (see [#GeneratingPasswordsWithoutApache below] for a method to create these files without using Apache):
    152166If 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.
    154 Note that you can start tracd without the --auth argument, but if you click on the ''Login'' link you will get an error.

    156170=== Generating Passwords Without Apache ===
    158 Basic Authorization can be accomplished via this [ online HTTP Password generator].  Copy the generated password-hash line to the .htpasswd file on your system.
     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.
    160174You can use this simple Python script to generate a '''digest''' password file:
    202216It is possible to use `md5sum` utility to generate digest-password file:
    204  $ printf "${user}:trac:${password}" | md5sum - >>user.htdigest
    205 }}}
    206 and manually delete " -" from the end and add "${user}:trac:" to the start of line from 'to-file'.
     222echo ${user}:${realm}:$(printf "${user}:${realm}:${password}" | md5sum - | sed -e 's/\s\+-//') > ${path_to_file}

     256  --user=USER           the user to run as
     259Use the -d option so that tracd doesn't hang if you close the terminal window where tracd was started.

     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
    263359=== Serving a different base path than / ===
    264360Tracd supports serving projects with different base urls than /<project>. The parameter name to change this is
