ChiliProject 1.4.0 + Ruby Enterprise + Passenger + Apache2

I was a happy Trac user, but after seeing Redmine, I realized that Trac has many missing features and that you must do a lot of things with plugins, Redmine has this features out-of-box. After working a bit with Redmine I discovered ChiliProject, which is a fork of Redmine, and its actually compatible with Redmine Themes and Plugins.

Here is a comparison of Redmine/ChiliProject and Trac features:

Installing TRAC with mod_wsgi using virtualenv

This guide is for installing Trac as a user using virtualenv for a isolated Python environment so that the whole installation runs under a specific user.

First of all we need to install needed packages

apt-get install libapache2-mod-wsgi python-virtualenv python-setuptools

Once we have installed the required packages proceed to create the Python environment

mkdir /usr/local/trac
cd /usr/local/trac
virtualenv python

We now have the isolated Python environment locate under /usr/local/trac/python.

To make possible to use easy_install with repositories we need to upgrade easy_install. I use this to install Trac plugins directly from SVN.

/usr/local/trac/python/bin/easy_install -U trunk

We now can install trac 0.12 using the 0.12b1 SVN Tag (http://svn.edgewall.com/repos/trac/tags/trac-0.12b1 or Trac==0.12b1) or directly from SVN Trunk:

/usr/local/trac/python/bin/easy_install http://svn.edgewall.org/repos/trac/trunk

This will download and install the latest trunk version for Trac.

Multiples proyectos con trac y svn usando HTTPS

Voy a explicar como montar el sistema de gestion de proyectos trac y subversion usando https para trabajar con subversion. Yo lo he montado en una debian usando apache2, asi que lo primero que necesitamos es instalar todo lo necesario

apt-get install trac subversion apache2 subversion libapache2-svn libapache2-mod-python2.3

Una vez descargado e instalado creamos el certificado necesario para usar tanto trac y subversion bajo https. Entra en el directorio /etc/apache2/ssl y ejecuta lo siguiente:

openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024
openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr
cp server.key server.key.org
openssl rsa -in server.key.org -out server.key
openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in server.csr -signkey server.key -out server.crt

Ahora ya tenemos listo los certificados, asi que ahora solo nos queda configurar el apache. Yo he creado un trac.dominio.ext y un svn.dominio.ext para hacer esto, pero esto va a gusto de cada uno. Yo como uso dos subdominios distintos, lo tengo en ficheros separados.
