    44Trac 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.
    55
    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.

    86== Global Configuration ==
    97
    10 In versions prior to 0.11, the global configuration was by default located in `$prefix/share/trac/conf/trac.ini` or /etc/trac/trac.ini, depending on the distribution. If you're upgrading, you may want to specify that file to inherit from.  Literally, when you're upgrading to 0.11, you have to add an `[inherit]` section to your project's `trac.ini` file. Additionally, you have to move your customized templates and common images from `$prefix/share/trac/...` to the new location.

    1211Global options will be merged with the environment-specific options, where local options override global options. The options file is specified as follows:
    1312{{{
    1413[inherit]
    15 file = /path/to/global/trac.ini
     14file = /usr/share/trac/conf/trac.ini
    1615}}}
    17 Multiple files can be specified using a comma-separated list.
    1816
    19 Note 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.
     17Note that you can also specify a global option file when creating a new project,  by adding the option
     18`--inherit=/path/to/global/options` to [TracAdmin trac-admin]'s `initenv` command.
     19If you would not do this but nevertheless intend to use a global option file with your new environment,
     20you would have to go through the newly generated conf/trac.ini file and delete the entries that would
     21otherwise override those set in the global file.
    2022
    21 There 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.

     31== [components] == #components-section
    3332This 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.

    93 
    94 One of the alternatives for registering new repositories is to populate the `[repositories]` section of the trac.ini.
    95 
    96 This is especially suited for setting up convenience aliases, short-lived repositories, or during the initial phases of an installation.
    97 
    98 See [TracRepositoryAdmin#Intrac.ini TracRepositoryAdmin] for details about the format adopted for this section and the rest of that page for the other alternatives.

    103 The TracBrowser for Subversion can interpret the `svn:externals` property of folders.
    104 By default, it only turns the URLs into links as Trac can't browse remote repositories.
    105 
    106 However, if you have another Trac instance (or an other repository browser like [http://www.viewvc.org/ ViewVC]) configured to browse the target repository, then you can instruct Trac which other repository browser to use for which external URL.
     98The TracBrowser for Subversion can interpret the `svn:externals` property of folders out of the box.
     99However, if those externals are ''not'' using the `http:` protocol, or if a link to a different repository browser (such 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.
    107100
    108101This mapping is done in the `[svn:externals]` section of the TracIni
     
    111104{{{
    112105[svn:externals]
    113 1 = svn://server/repos1                       http://trac/proj1/browser/$path?rev=$rev

    117110}}}
    118 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).
     111With the above, the `svn://anotherserver.com/tools_repository/tags/1.1/tools` external will be mapped to `http://ourserver/trac/support/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).

    120113Note 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.
    121 
    122 Finally, the relative URLs introduced in [http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.5_releasenotes.html#externals Subversion 1.5] are not yet supported.
