I found really annoying that all Git guides I found talked about using Git over SSH, thats because I googled until I found that Git now comes with git-http-backend, which lets you to configure your webserver to serve git over HTTP/HTTPS.

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.

Recompilar MAMP

El soporte de LDAP en MAMP 1.7.1 esta roto asi que tube que recompilar el PHP, lo cual me obligo a recompilar todas sus dependencias, pero como no encontre ninguna guia de como realizarlo correctamente, aqui esta como lo hice yo.

Lo primero es descargarse el codigo fuente proporcionado por la gente de MAMP, y su version compilada.

Codigo fuente: MAMP 1.7.1 (src)

Version Intel: MAMP 1.7.1 (intel)

Version PPC: MAMP 1.7.1 (ppc)

Una vez que tengamos esto, hay que instalar MAMP la version compilada en /Applications y asi ya tenemos toda la estructura correcta lista para solo recompilar lo necesario.

Ahora descomprimimos el codigo fuente y vamos compilando las diferentes librerias:


tar zxvf curl-7.16.2.tar.gz
cd curl-7.16.2
./configure --prefix=/Applications/MAMP/Library
make install
