    Hello there,

    I'm trying to install trac project management on my debian ispconfig server.

    i just followed the installation notes using apt-get install trac

    and have set up a trac enviroment.

    Next step was to add the following to apache conf


    Code:
    Alias /trac "/usr/share/trac/htdocs"
        <Location "/cgi-bin/trac.cgi">
            SetEnv TRAC_ENV "/home/trac/cmsv3"
        </Location>
    
        # You need something like this to authenticate users
        <Location "/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/login">
            AuthType Basic
            AuthName "cmsv3"
            AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/dav_svn.passwd
            Require valid-user
        </Location>
    
     The latest documentation can also always be found on the project website:
     http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/
    
    I added this in the ispconfig control panel at the corresponding site. But when i try to view trac i get a 403 Error- Forbidden!

    I copied the trac.cgi to the cgi-bin directory, also chown it to www-data and chmod +x

    also the trac htdocs located in /usr/share/trac/htdocs is chowned to www-data

    Does anyone have any idea how to crack this puzzle?

    Thanks in advance

    Can you
    Code:
    cat /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf
    and snip out the bit for the website in question?

    Dytech - can you tail -f the http log for that user...
    Code:
    tail -f /home/www/web16/log/error.log
    ...and try and access the page. Post me the output...

    tail -f

    Sure!

    Here it is :

    Options FollowSymLinks or SymLinksIfOwnerMatch is off which implies that RewriteRule directive is forbidden: /var/www/web16/cgi-bin/trac.cgi


    over and over again...

    What does this mean?

    I have removed all the rewrite lines in the vhostconf and also the .htaccess files inside the webfolder

    Inside /usr/share/trac/htdocs there are no .htaccess files

    You can try to add something like this to the vhost configuration:

    Code:
    <Directory /var/www/web16/web>
      Options +FollowSymLinks 
    </Directory>

    Thanks Falko,

    But that didn't work either.

    I tried :

    <Directory /var/www/web16/web> ( and cgi-bin directory and trac htdocs directory )
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
    </Directory>


    All came up with the same error in the log.

    What can i do?

    Change it to:
    Code:
    <Directory /var/www/web16/web>  ( and cgi-bin directory and trac htdocs directory )
      Options +FollowSymLinks +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch 
    </Directory>

    Yeah that helped a little, but now i see this in the tail...

    Code:
    [Wed Jun 06 16:06:00 2007] [error] [client 82.176.80.252]  /usr/bin/python: can't open file '/var/www/web16/cgi-bin/trac.cgi'
    
    [Wed Jun 06 16:06:00 2007] [error] [client 82.176.80.252] Premature end of script headers: trac.cgi

    What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -l /var/www/web16/cgi-bin/trac.cgi
    ? Are there maybe Windows linebreaks in that file?

    That gives :

    Code:
    server1:/var/www# ls -l /var/www/web16/cgi-bin/trac.cgi
    ---x--x--x  1 www-data root 1230 2007-06-04 13:49 /var/www/web16/cgi-bin/trac.cgi
    
    What does ls -l show exactly?

    And guess not that there would be windows line breaks, i downloaded like it is and havent opened it on any windows machine.

    Thank you for all your support!!!
