Trac is distributed with a powerful configuration tool. This tool can be used to configure and customize your Trac-installation to better fit your needs.


Usage: trac-admin </path/to/projenv> [command [subcommand] [option ...]]

Invoking trac-admin without command starts interactive mode.

Interactive Mode

When passed the database filename as only argument, trac-admin starts in interactive mode. Commands can then be executed on the selected database using the prompt, which offers tab-completion (on non-Windows environments) and automatic repetition of the last command issued.

A Note on Configuration

For configuration of the Trac environment, Trac 0.7 introduced a new storage format, including a separate config file used for settings. See TracIni for details.
