    48Trac 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. 
    59 
    6 The `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. 
     10The `trac.ini` configuration file and its parent directory should be writable by the web server, as Trac currently relies on the possibility to trigger a complete environment reload to flush its caches.

    812== Global Configuration == 
     
    1317{{{

     19file = /path/to/global/trac.ini 
    1620}}} 
     21Multiple files can be specified using a comma-separated list. 
    1722 
    18 Note that you can also specify a global option file when creating a new project,  by adding the option `--inherit=/path/to/global/options` to [TracAdmin trac-admin]'s `initenv` command.  If 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. 
     23Note 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. 
    1924 
     25There 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. 
    2026 
    21 == Reference == 
     27Note that the templates found in the `templates/` directory of the TracEnvironment have precedence over those found in `[inherit] templates_dir`. In turn, the latter have precedence over the installed templates, so be careful about what you put there, notably if you override a default template be sure to refresh your modifications when you upgrade to a new version of Trac (the preferred way to perform TracInterfaceCustomization being still to write a custom plugin doing an appropriate `ITemplateStreamFilter` transformation). 
    2228 
    23 This is a brief reference of available configuration options. 
     29== Reference for settings 
    2430 
    25  ''Note that the [bitten], [spam-filter] and [vote] sections below are added by plugins enabled on this Trac, and therefore won't be part of a default installation.'' 
     31This is a brief reference of available configuration options, and their default settings.

    30 == [components] == #components-section 
    31 This 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. 
    32  
    33 The option name is either the fully qualified name of the components or the module/package prefix of the component. The former enables/disables a specific component, while the latter enables/disables any component in the specified package/module. 
    34  
    35 Consider the following configuration snippet: 
    36 {{{ 
    37 [components] 
    38 trac.ticket.report.ReportModule = disabled 
    39 webadmin.* = enabled 
    40 }}} 
    41  
    42 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. 
    43  
    44 See the ''Plugins'' page on ''About Trac'' to get the list of active components (requires `CONFIG_VIEW` [wiki:TracPermissions permissions].) 
    45  
    46 See also: TracPlugins 
    47  
    48 == [ticket-custom] == #ticket-custom-section 
    49  
    50 In this section, you can define additional fields for tickets. See TracTicketsCustomFields for more details. 
    51  
    52 == [ticket-workflow] == #ticket-workflow-section 
    53 ''(since 0.11)'' 
    54  
    55 The workflow for tickets is controlled by plugins.  
    56 By default, there's only a `ConfigurableTicketWorkflow` component in charge.  
    57 That component allows the workflow to be configured via this section in the trac.ini file. 
    58 See TracWorkflow for more details. 
    59  
    60 == [milestone-groups] == #milestone-groups-section 
    61 ''(since 0.11)'' 
    62  
    63 As the workflow for tickets is now configurable, there can be many ticket states, 
    64 and simply displaying closed tickets vs. all the others is maybe not appropriate  
    65 in all cases. This section enables one to easily create ''groups'' of states  
    66 that will be shown in different colors in the milestone progress bar. 
    67  
    68 Example configuration (the default only has closed and active): 
    69 {{{ 
    70 closed = closed 
    71 # sequence number in the progress bar 
    72 closed.order = 0 
    73 # optional extra param for the query (two additional columns: created and modified and sort on created) 
    74 group=resolution,order=time,col=id,col=summary,col=owner,col=type,col=priority,col=component,col=severity,col=time,col=changetime 
    75 # indicates groups that count for overall completion  
    76 closed.overall_completion = truepercentage 
    77  
    78 new = new 
    79 new.order = 1 
    80 new.css_class = new 
    81 new.label = new 
    82  
    83 # one catch-all group is allowed 
    84 active = * 
    85 active.order = 2 
    86 # CSS class for this interval 
    87 active.css_class = open 
    88 # Displayed label for this group 
    89 active.label = in progress 
    90 }}} 
    91  
    92 The definition consists in a comma-separated list of accepted status. 
    93 Also, '*' means any status and could be used to associate all remaining 
    94 states to one catch-all group. 
    95  
    96 The CSS class can be one of: new (yellow), open (no color) or 
    97 closed (green). New styles can easily be added using the following 
    98 selector:  `table.progress td.<class>` 
    99  
    100 == [svn:externals] == #svn:externals-section 
    101 ''(since 0.11)'' 
    102  
    103 The TracBrowser for Subversion can interpret the `svn:externals` property of folders out of the box. 
    104 However, if those externals are ''not'' using the `http:` or `https:` protocol, or if a link to a different repository browser such as 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. 
    105  
    106 This mapping is done in the `[svn:externals]` section of the TracIni 
    107  
    108 Example: 
    109 {{{ 
    110 [svn:externals] 
    111 1 = svn://server/repos1 http://trac/proj1/browser/$path?rev=$rev 
    112 2 = svn://server/repos2 http://trac/proj2/browser/$path?rev=$rev 
    113 3 = http://theirserver.org/svn/eng-soft       http://ourserver/viewvc/svn/$path/?pathrev=25914 
    114 4 = svn://anotherserver.com/tools_repository  http://ourserver/tracs/tools/browser/$path?rev=$rev 
    115 }}} 
    116 With 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). 
    117  
    118 Note 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. 
    119  
    120 Finally, the relative URLs introduced in [http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.5_releasenotes.html#externals Subversion 1.5] are not yet supported.
