#1684 closed task (fixed)

Reorganize trac instances location

Reported by: strk Owned by: strk
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: SysAdmin/Trac Keywords: trac, apache
Cc: neteler


In order to clearly separate app data from statically served files it will be useful to have 2 directories under /var/www/trac, one named "instance" with all the instances and one named "htdocs" or "html" with the static files.

Until recently /var/www/trac was the DocumentRoot for and this opened up access to a lot of not-intended-for-public-eyes files.

Now the DocumentRoot for static files was moved (by myself) to /osgeo/trac/htdocs, while /var/www/trac remained for the instances.

I hadn't moved the instances because I was concerned about the backup procedure, which (I've been told from Martin) uses trac-admin and references instances via "/var/www/trac/<instancename>"

For the record, the current DocumentRoot is back under /var/www/trac/html - instances are not moved one directory down yet, but would still be nice to do that. Backup scripts are under /osgeo/ and there are also other scripts in use expecting instances to be under /var/www/trac. Hopefully all under /osgeo/tools

I've just read that in order to switch to WSGI setup (could make trac faster) we also need all instances (environments) to be under a directory containing nothing else. See

I suspect having more directories (like we have now) also affect performance of the mod_python version of the deploy (as it is now).

Scripts all updated, and symlinks removed. Considering this done. File new tickets shall any issue arise.

SVN hook scripts also had the old path, I've now updated them.

Doing the changes I noted some hook scripts that are likely broken (and were before the path changes too). Will discuss this in a separate ticket: #1873
