    11= Tracd = 
    22 
    3 Tracd is a lightweight stand-alone Trac server. In most cases it's easier to setup and runs faster than trac.cgi.

     3Tracd is a lightweight standalone Trac web server. In most cases it's easier to setup and runs faster than the [wiki:TracCgi CGI script]. 
    54 
    65== Pros == 
    76 
    87 * Fewer dependencies: You don't need to install apache or any other web-server. 
    9  * Fast: Should be as fast as the TracModPython version (much faster than the cgi). 
     8 * Fast: Should be as fast as the [wiki:TracModPython mod_python] version (and much faster than the [wiki:TracCgi CGI]). 
    109 
    1110== Cons == 
    1211 
    13  * Less features: Tracd implements a very simple web-server and is not as configurable as apache. 
    14  * Only htdigest authentication: Tracd can currently only authenticate users against apache-htdigest files. 
    15  * No native https support: [http://www.rickk.com/sslwrap/ sslwrap] can be used instead, 
     12 * Less features: Tracd implements a very simple web-server and is not as configurable as Apache HTTPD. 
     13 * No native HTTPS support: [http://www.rickk.com/sslwrap/ sslwrap] can be used instead, 
    1614   or [http://lists.edgewall.com/archive/trac/2005-August/004381.html STUNNEL].

    2624 $ tracd -p 8080 /path/to/project1 /path/to/project2 
    2725}}} 
    28 With htdigest authentication. The file /tmp/users.htdigest contain user accounts for project1 with the realm "mycompany.com". 
     26 
     27You can't have the last portion of the path identical between the projects since that's how trac keeps the URLs of the 
     28different projects unique. So if you use /project1/path/to and /project2/path/to, you will only see the second project. 
     29 
     30== Using Authentication == 
     31 
     32Tracd provides support for both Basic and Digest authentication. The default is to use Digest; to use Basic authentication, replace `--auth` with `--basic-auth` in the examples below, and omit the realm. 
     33 
     34If the file `/path/to/users.htdigest` contain user accounts for project1 with the realm "mycompany.com", you'd use the following command-line to start tracd: 
    2935{{{ 
    30  $ tracd -p 8080 --auth project1,/tmp/users.htdigest,mycompany.com /path/to/project1 
     36 $ tracd -p 8080 --auth project1,/path/to/users.htdigest,mycompany.com /path/to/project1 
    3137}}} 
    32 htdigest authentication can also be used for more than one project. 
    33 The digest file can be shared: 
     38''Note that the project “name” passed to the `--auth` option is actually the base name of the project environment directory."" 
     39 
     40Of course, the digest file can be be shared so that it is used for more than one project: 
    3441{{{ 
    3542 $ tracd -p 8080 \ 
    36    --auth project1,/tmp/users.htdigest,mycompany.com \ 
    37    --auth project2,/tmp/users.htdigest,mycompany.com \ 
     43   --auth project1,/path/to/users.htdigest,mycompany.com \ 
     44   --auth project2,/path/to/users.htdigest,mycompany.com \ 
    3845   /path/to/project1 /path/to/project2 
    3946}}}

    41 == Tracd on Windows == 
     48== Generating Passwords Without Apache == 
    4249 
    43 tracd also works on Windows.  
    44 But on that platform, the sensitivity on multithreading issues is high, 
    45 and you ''might'' have problems (i.e. crashes of the Python interpreter). 
    46 If this happens, you can force tracd to operate in single-threaded mode:
