    7272==== Enabling the plugin ==== 
    73 Unlike plugins installed per-environment, you'll have to explicitly enable globally installed plugins via [wiki:TracIni trac.ini]. This is done in the `[components]` section of the configuration file, for example: 
     73Unlike plugins installed per-environment, you'll have to explicitly enable globally installed plugins via [wiki:TracIni trac.ini]. This also applies to plugins installed in the path specified in the `[inherit] plugins_dir` configuration option. This is done in the `[components]` section of the configuration file, for example:

    9898== Setting up the Plugin Cache ==

    100 Some plugins will need to be extracted by the Python eggs runtime (`pkg_resources`), so that their contents are actual files on the file system. The directory in which they are extracted defaults to the home directory of the current user, which may or may not be a problem. You can however override the default location using the `PYTHON_EGG_CACHE` environment variable.

    102102To do this from the Apache configuration, use the `SetEnv` directive as follows:

    126  ''Note: this requires the `mod_env` module'' 
     126 ''Note: !SetEnv requires the `mod_env` module which needs to be activated for Apache. In this case the !SetEnv directive can also be used in the `mod_python` Location block.'' 
    127127 
    128128For [wiki:TracFastCgi FastCGI], you'll need to `-initial-env` option, or whatever is provided by your web server for setting environment variables.  
    129129 
    130  ''Note: that if you already use -initial-env to set the project directory for either a single project or parent you will need to add atleast one environment variable inside trac.fcgi as expressed in the example on [wiki:TracFastCgi TracFastCgi]. 
     130 ''Note: that if you already use -initial-env to set the project directory for either a single project or parent you will need to add an additional -initial-env directive to the !FastCgiConfig directive. I.e.

    155160If you install a plugin globally (i.e. ''not'' inside the `plugins` directory of the Trac project environment) you will have to explicitly enable it in [TracIni trac.ini]. Make sure that: 
    156161 * you actually added the necessary line(s) to the `[components]` section 
     
    168173=== Verify you have proper permissions === 
    169174 
    170 Some plugins require you have special permissions in order to use them. WebAdmin, for example, requires the user to have TRAC_ADMIN permissions for it to show up on the navigation bar.

    172177=== Is the wrong version of the plugin loading? === 
     
    180185=== If all of the above failed ===

    182 OK, so the logs don't mention plugins, the egg is readable, the python version is correct ''and'' the egg has been installed globally (and is enabled in the trac.ini) and it still doesn't work or give any error messages or any other indication as to why? Hop on the IrcChannel and ask away.
