    4 Trac configuration is done by editing the '''`trac.ini`''' config file, located in `<projectenv>/conf/trac.ini`.
     4Trac 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.
    55
    66== Global Configuration ==
    77
    8 Since version 0.9, Trac can also read the configuration from a global `trac.ini` file. These global options will then be merged with the environment-specific options, where local options override global options.
     8In versions prior to 0.11, the global configuration was by default located in `$prefix/share/trac/conf/trac.ini` or sometimes /etc/trac/trac.ini depending on the distribution. If you're upgrading, you may want to specify that file to inherit from.
     9Literally, when you're upgrading to 0.11, you have to add an `inherit`-section to your project's `trac.ini` file. Additionally you have to move your customized templates and common images from `$prefix/share/trac/...` to the new location.
    910
    10 The global configuration is by default located in `$prefix/share/trac/conf/trac.ini`. It can be moved to a different location (for example, `/etc/trac.ini`), but that requires changing the file `trac/siteconfig.py` which gets created when Trac is installed.
     11Global options will be merged with the environment-specific options, where local options override global options. The options file is specified as follows:
     12{{{
     13[inherit]
     14file = /usr/share/trac/conf/trac.ini
     15}}}
     16
     17Note that you can also specify a global option file when creating a new project,  by adding the option
     18`--inherit=/path/to/global/options` to [TracAdmin trac-admin]'s `initenv` command.
     19If you would not do this but nevertheless intend to use a global option file with your new environment,
     20you would have to go through the newly generated conf/trac.ini file and delete the entries that would
     21otherwise override those set in the global file.

    1224== Reference ==
     
    1426This is a brief reference of available configuration options.

    16 '''Note: since [milestone:0.10], the TracIni reference is auto-generated
    17 from the source code, using the TracIniMacro. But in this page, we will keep
    18 the old ''wiki'' content, so that documentation fixes could be easily
    19 contributed by the community, as before.'''

     31== [components] == #components-section
    11832This 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.

    12741}}}
    12842
    129 The first option tells Trac to disable the [wiki:TracReports report module]. The second option instructs Trac to enable all components in the `webadmin` package. Note that the trailing wildcard is required for module/package matching. To get a list of active components for your installation, see the ''Plugins'' page on ''About Trac'' (requires `CONFIG_VIEW` [wiki:TracPermissions permissions].)

    133 == [changeset] ==
    134 (''since 0.10'')
     49== [ticket-custom] == #ticket-custom-section
    13550
    136 || `max_diff_bytes` || A limit for the sum of the size of all old ''and'' new files involved in a changeset. [[br]] Note that when requesting a diff precisely on a very big file (e.g. by the use of the ''Last Change'' link), the size limit will ''not'' be taken into account and the diffs will always be computed. ||
     51In this section, you can define additional fields for tickets. See TracTicketsCustomFields for more details.
     52
     53== [ticket-workflow] == #ticket-workflow-section
     54''(since 0.11)''
     55
     56The workflow for tickets is controlled by plugins.
     57By default, there's only a `ConfigurableTicketWorkflow` component in charge.
     58That component allows the workflow to be configured via this section in the trac.ini file.
     59See TracWorkflow for more details.
     60
     61== [milestone-groups] == #milestone-groups-section
     62''(since 0.11)''
     63
     64As the workflow for tickets is now configurable, there can be many ticket states,
     65and simply displaying closed tickets vs. all the others is maybe not appropriate
     66in all cases. This section enables one to easily create ''groups'' of states
     67that will be shown in different colors in the milestone progress bar.
     68
     69Example configuration (the default only has closed and active):
     70{{{
     71closed = closed
     72closed.order = 0                     # sequence number in the progress bar
     73closed.query_args = group=resolution # optional extra param for the query
     74closed.overall_completion = true     # indicates groups that count for overall completion percentage
     75
     76new = new
     77new.order = 1
     78new.css_class = new
     79new.label = new
     80
     81active = *                           # one catch-all group is allowed
     82active.order = 1
     83active.css_class = open              # CSS class for this interval
     84active.label = in progress           # Displayed label for this group
     85}}}
     86
     87The definition consists in a comma-separated list of accepted status.
     88Also, '*' means any status and could be used to associate all remaining
     89states to one catch-all group.
     90
     91The CSS class can be one of: new (yellow), open (no color) or
     92closed (green). New styles can easily be added using the following
     93selector:  `table.progress td.<class>`
     94
     95== [svn:externals] == #svn:externals-section
     96''(since 0.11)''
     97
     98The TracBrowser for Subversion can interpret the `svn:externals` property of folders out of the box.
     99However, 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.
     100
     101This mapping is done in the `[svn:externals]` section of the TracIni
     102
     103Example:
     104{{{
     105[svn:externals]
     1061 = svn://server/repos1 http://trac/proj1/browser/$path?rev=$rev
     1072 = svn://server/repos2 http://trac/proj2/browser/$path?rev=$rev
     1083 = http://theirserver.org/svn/eng-soft       http://ourserver/viewvc/svn/$path/?pathrev=25914
     1094 = svn://anotherserver.com/tools_repository  http://ourserver/trac/support/browser/$path?rev=$rev
     110}}}
     111With 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).
     112
     113Note 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.
