     5Trac configuration is done by editing the '''`trac.ini`''' config file, located in `<projectenv>/conf/trac.ini`.  Changes to the configuration are usually reflected immediately, though changes to the `[components]` or `[logging]` sections will require restarting the web server. You may also need to restart the web server after creating a global configuration file when none was previously present. 
     6 
     7The `trac.ini` configuration file should be writable by the web server, as Trac currently relies on the possibility to trigger a complete environment reload to flush its caches.

    59== Global Configuration == 
    610 
    7 In versions prior to 0.11, the global configuration was by default located in `$prefix/share/trac/conf/trac.ini` or sometimes /etc/trac/trac.ini depending on the distribution. If you're upgrading, you may want to specify that file to inherit from. 
     11In versions prior to 0.11, the global configuration was by default located in `$prefix/share/trac/conf/trac.ini` or /etc/trac/trac.ini, depending on the distribution. If you're upgrading, you may want to specify that file to inherit from.  Literally, when you're upgrading to 0.11, you have to add an `[inherit]` section to your project's `trac.ini` file. Additionally, you have to move your customized templates and common images from `$prefix/share/trac/...` to the new location. 
    812 
    913Global options will be merged with the environment-specific options, where local options override global options. The options file is specified as follows: 
    1014{{{ 
    1115[inherit] 
    12 file = /usr/share/trac/conf/trac.ini 
     16file = /path/to/global/trac.ini 
    1317}}} 
     18Multiple files can be specified using a comma-separated list. 
    1419 
    15 Note that you can also specify a global option file when creating a new project,  by adding the option 
    16 `--inherit=/path/to/global/options` to [TracAdmin trac-admin]'s `initenv` command. 
    17 If you would not do this but nevertheless intend to use a global option file with your new environment,  
    18 you would have to go through the newly generated conf/trac.ini file and delete the entries that would 
    19 otherwise override those set in the global file. 
     20Note that you can also specify a global option file when creating a new project,  by adding the option `--inherit=/path/to/global/trac.ini` to [TracAdmin#initenv trac-admin]'s `initenv` command.  If you do not do this but nevertheless intend to use a global option file with your new environment, you will have to go through the newly generated `conf/trac.ini` file and delete the entries that will otherwise override those set in the global file. 
    2021 
     22There are two more entries in the [[#inherit-section| [inherit] ]] section, `templates_dir` for sharing global templates and `plugins_dir`, for sharing plugins. Those entries can themselves be specified in the shared configuration file, and in fact, configuration files can even be chained if you specify another `[inherit] file` there.

     35=== [components] === #components-section 
    3036This section is used to enable or disable components provided by plugins, as well as by Trac itself. The component to enable/disable is specified via the name of the option. Whether its enabled is determined by the option value; setting the value to `enabled` or `on` will enable the component, any other value (typically `disabled` or `off`) will disable the component.

    53  
    54 The workflow for tickets is controlled by plugins.  
    55 By default, there's only a `ConfigurableTicketWorkflow` component in charge.  
    56 That component allows the workflow to be configured via this section in the trac.ini file. 
    57 See TracWorkflow for more details.

     96 
     97One of the alternatives for registering new repositories is to populate the `[repositories]` section of the trac.ini. 
     98 
     99This is especially suited for setting up convenience aliases, short-lived repositories, or during the initial phases of an installation. 
     100 
     101See [TracRepositoryAdmin#Intrac.ini TracRepositoryAdmin] for details about the format adopted for this section and the rest of that page for the other alternatives.

    91 The TracBrowser for Subversion can interpret the `svn:externals` property of folders out of the box. 
    92 However, if those externals are ''not'' using the `http:` protocol, or if a link to a different repository browser (such another Trac or [http://www.viewvc.org/ ViewVC]) is desired, then Trac needs to be able to map an external prefix to this other URL. 
     106The TracBrowser for Subversion can interpret the `svn:externals` property of folders. 
     107By default, it only turns the URLs into links as Trac can't browse remote repositories. 
     108 
     109However, if you have another Trac instance (or an other repository browser like [http://www.viewvc.org/ ViewVC]) configured to browse the target repository, then you can instruct Trac which other repository browser to use for which external URL. 
    93110 
    94111This mapping is done in the `[svn:externals]` section of the TracIni

    104 With the above, the `svn://anotherserver.com/tools_repository/tags/1.1/tools` external will be mapped to `http://ourserver/trac/support/browser/tags/1.1/tools?rev=` (and `rev` will be set to the appropriate revision number if the external additionally specifies a revision, see the [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.advanced.externals.html SVN Book on externals] for more details). 
     121With the above, the `svn://anotherserver.com/tools_repository/tags/1.1/tools` external will be mapped to `http://ourserver/tracs/tools/browser/tags/1.1/tools?rev=` (and `rev` will be set to the appropriate revision number if the external additionally specifies a revision, see the [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.advanced.externals.html SVN Book on externals] for more details). 
    105122 
    106123Note that the number used as a key in the above section is purely used as a place holder, as the URLs themselves can't be used as a key due to various limitations in the configuration file parser. 
    107124 
     125Finally, the relative URLs introduced in [http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.5_releasenotes.html#externals Subversion 1.5] are not yet supported.

     133 
     134The workflow for tickets is controlled by plugins.  
     135By default, there's only a `ConfigurableTicketWorkflow` component in charge.  
     136That component allows the workflow to be configured via this section in the trac.ini file. 
     137See TracWorkflow for more details.
