     12[wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] will ask you for the name of the project, the
     13database connection string (explained below), and the type and path to
     14your source code repository.

    15 === Some Useful Tips
    16  - The user under which the web server runs will require file system write permission to
    17  the environment directory and all the files inside. Please remember to set
    18  the appropriate permissions. The same applies to the source code repository,
    19  although the user under which Trac runs will only require write access to a Subversion repository created with the BDB file system; for other repository types, check the corresponding plugin's documentation.
    20  
    21  - `initenv` when using svn repository does not imply that trac-admin will perform `svnadmin create` for the specified repository path. You need to perform the `svnadmin create` prior to `trac-admin initenv` if you're creating a new svn repository altogether with a new trac environment, otherwise you will see a message "Warning: couldn't index the repository" when initializing the environment.
    22 
    23  - Non-ascii environment paths are not supported
    24  
    25  - Also, it seems that project names with spaces can be problematic for authentication (see [trac:#7163]).
    26 
    27  - TracPlugins located in a [TracIni#inherit-section shared plugins folder] that is defined in an [TracIni#GlobalConfiguration inherited configuration] are currently not loaded during creation, and hence, if they need to create extra tables for example, you'll need to [TracUpgrade#UpgradetheTracEnvironment upgrade the environment] before being able to use it.
     16''Note: The web server user will require file system write permission to
     17the environment directory and all the files inside. Please remember to set
     18the appropriate permissions. The same applies to the Subversion repository
     19Trac is eventually using, although Trac will only require read access as long
     20as you're not using the BDB file system. Also, it seems that project names
     21with spaces can be problematic for authentication (see [trac:#7163]).''

    2923== Database Connection Strings ==
     
    3630[wiki:TracBackup backed up] together with the rest of the environment.
    3731
    38 === SQLite Connection String ===
    39 The connection string for an SQLite database is:
     32=== Embedded SQLite Connection String ===
     33The connection string for an embedded SQLite database is:
    4034{{{
    4135sqlite:db/trac.db
    4236}}}
    43 where `db/trac.db` is the path to the database file within the Trac environment.
    4437
    4538=== PostgreSQL Connection String ===
     
    10295== Source Code Repository ==
    10396
    104 Since version 0.12, a single Trac environment can be connected to more than one repository. There are many different ways to connect repositories to an environment, see TracRepositoryAdmin. This page also details the various attributes that can be set for a repository (like `type`, `url`, `description`).
     97You'll first have to provide the ''type'' of your repository (e.g. `svn` for Subversion,
     98which is the default), then the ''path'' where the repository is located.
    10599
    106 In Trac 0.12 `trac-admin` no longer asks questions related to repositories. Therefore, by default Trac is not connected to any source code repository, and the ''Browse Source'' toolbar item will not be displayed.
    107 You can also explicitly disable the `trac.versioncontrol.*` components (which are otherwise still loaded)
    108 {{{
    109 [components]
    110 trac.versioncontrol.* = disabled
    111 }}}
     100If you don't want to use Trac with a source code repository, simply leave the ''path'' empty
     101(the ''type'' information doesn't matter, then).
    112102
    113 For some version control systems, it is possible to specify not only the path to the repository,
     103For some systems, it is possible to specify not only the path to the repository,
    114104but also a ''scope'' within the repository. Trac will then only show information
    115105related to the files and changesets below that scope. The Subversion backend for
    116106Trac supports this; for other types, check the corresponding plugin's documentation.

    149 '''Caveat:''' ''don't confuse a Trac environment directory with the source code repository directory.''
    150 
    151 This is a common beginners' mistake.
    152 It happens that the structure for a Trac environment is loosely modelled after the Subversion repository directory
    153 structure, but those are two disjoint entities and they are not and ''must not'' be located at the same place.
