    3 Since version 0.9, Trac supports being run through the [http://www.fastcgi.com/ FastCGI] interface. Like [wiki:TracModPython mod_python], this allows Trac to remain resident, and is faster than external CGI interfaces which must start a new process for each request. However, unlike mod_python, it is able to support [http://httpd.apache.org/docs/suexec.html SuEXEC]. Additionally, it is supported by much wider variety of web servers.

    12 == Simple Apache configuration ==
    13 
    14 There are two FastCGI modules commonly available for Apache: `mod_fastcgi` and
    15 `mod_fcgid`.  The `FastCgiIpcDir` and `FastCgiConfig` directives discussed
    16 below are `mod_fastcgi` directives; the `DefaultInitEnv` is a `mod_fcgid`
    17 directive.
    18 
    19 For `mod_fastcgi`, add the following to an appropriate Apache configuration
    20 file:

     5
     6[http://www.fastcgi.com/ FastCGI] interface allows Trac to remain resident much like with [wiki:TracModPython mod_python] or [wiki:TracModWSGI mod_wsgi]. It is faster than external CGI interfaces which must start a new process for each request. Additionally, it is supported by a much wider variety of web servers.
     7
     8Note that unlike mod_python, FastCGI supports [http://httpd.apache.org/docs/suexec.html Apache SuEXEC], ie run with different permissions than the web server runs with. `mod_wsgi` supports the `WSGIDaemonProcess` with user / group parameters to achieve the same effect.
     9
     10'''Note for Windows:''' Trac's FastCGI does not run under Windows, as Windows does not implement `Socket.fromfd`, which is used by `_fcgi.py`. If you want to connect to IIS, you may want to try [trac:TracOnWindowsIisAjp AJP]/[trac:TracOnWindowsIisAjp ISAPI].
     11
     12== Apache configuration
     13
     14There are two FastCGI modules commonly available for Apache: `mod_fastcgi` and `mod_fcgid` (preferred). The latter is more up-to-date.
     15
     16The following sections focus on the FCGI specific setup, see also [wiki:TracModWSGI#ConfiguringAuthentication] for configuring the authentication in Apache.
     17
     18Regardless of which cgi module is used, be sure the web server has executable permissions on the cgi-bin folder. While FastCGI will throw specific permissions errors, mod_fcgid will throw an ambiguous error if this has not been done: `Connection reset by peer: mod_fcgid: error reading data from FastCGI server`.
     19
     20=== Set up with `mod_fastcgi`
     21
     22`mod_fastcgi` uses `FastCgiIpcDir` and `FastCgiConfig` directives that should be added to an appropriate Apache configuration file:
     23{{{#!apache
    2224# Enable fastcgi for .fcgi files
    2325# (If you're using a distro package for mod_fcgi, something like
     
    2931LoadModule fastcgi_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_fastcgi.so
    3032}}}
     33
    3134Setting `FastCgiIpcDir` is optional if the default is suitable. Note that the `LoadModule` line must be after the `IfModule` group.
    3235
    33 Configure `ScriptAlias` or similar options as described in TracCgi, but
    34 calling `trac.fcgi` instead of `trac.cgi`.
    35 
    36 You can set up the `TRAC_ENV` as an overall default:
    37 {{{
     36Configure `ScriptAlias` or similar options as described in TracCgi, but calling `trac.fcgi` instead of `trac.cgi`.
     37
     38Add the following to the Apache configuration file (below the `FastCgiIpcDir` line) if you intend to set up the `TRAC_ENV` as an overall default:
     39{{{#!apache
    3840FastCgiConfig -initial-env TRAC_ENV=/path/to/env/trac
    3941}}}
    4042
    41 Or you can serve multiple Trac projects in a directory like:
    42 {{{
     43Alternatively, you can serve multiple Trac projects in a directory by adding this:
     44{{{#!apache
    4345FastCgiConfig -initial-env TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR=/parent/dir/of/projects
    4446}}}
    4547
    46 But neither of these will work for `mod_fcgid`.  A similar but partial
    47 solution for `mod_fcgid` is:
    48 {{{
     48=== Set up with `mod_fcgid`
     49
     50Configure `ScriptAlias` (see TracCgi for details), but call `trac.fcgi` instead of `trac.cgi`:
     51{{{#!apache
     52ScriptAlias /trac /path/to/www/trac/cgi-bin/trac.fcgi/
     53}}}
     54
     55Note the slash at the end.
     56
     57To set up Trac environment for `mod_fcgid` it is necessary to use `DefaultInitEnv` directive. It cannot be used in `Directory` or `Location` context, so if you need to support multiple projects, try the alternative environment setup below:
     58{{{#!apache
    4959DefaultInitEnv TRAC_ENV /path/to/env/trac/
    5060}}}
    51 But this cannot be used in `Directory` or `Location` context, which makes it
    52 difficult to support multiple projects.
    53 
    54 A better method which works for both of these modules (and for  [http://www.lighttpd.net/ lighttpd] and CGI as well), because it involves
    55 no server configuration settings for environment variables, is to set one
    56 of the variables in `trac.fcgi`, e.g.:
    57 {{{
     61
     62=== Alternative environment setup
     63
     64A better method to specify the path to the Trac environment is to embed the path into `trac.fcgi` script itself. That doesn't require configuration of the server environment variables, works for both [trac:FastCgi] modules as well as for [http://www.lighttpd.net/ lighttpd] and CGI:
     65{{{#!python
    5866import os
    5967os.environ['TRAC_ENV'] = "/path/to/projectenv"
    6068}}}
    61 or
    62 {{{
     69
     70or:
     71{{{#!python
    6372import os
    6473os.environ['TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR'] = "/path/to/project/parent/dir"
    6574}}}
    6675
    67 Using this method, different projects can be supported by using different
    68 `.fcgi` scripts with different `ScriptAliases`, copying and appropriately
    69 renaming `trac.fcgi` and adding the above code to create each such script.
     76With this method different projects can be supported by using different `.fcgi` scripts with different `ScriptAliases`.
    7077
    7178See [https://coderanger.net/~coderanger/httpd/fcgi_example.conf this fcgid example config] which uses a !ScriptAlias directive with trac.fcgi with a trailing / like this:
    72 {{{

    76 == Simple Cherokee Configuration ==
    77 
    78 Configuration wanted.
    79 
    80 == Simple Lighttpd Configuration ==
    81 
    82 The FastCGI front-end was developed primarily for use with alternative webservers, such as [http://www.lighttpd.net/ lighttpd].
    83 
    84 lighttpd is a secure, fast, compliant and very flexible web-server that has been optimized for high-performance
    85 environments.  It has a very low memory footprint compared to other web servers and takes care of CPU load.
    86 
    87 For using `trac.fcgi` with lighttpd add the following to your lighttpd.conf:
    88 {{{
     83== Cherokee Configuration
     84
     85Configuring [http://cherokee-project.com/ Cherokee] with Trac is straightforward, if you spawn Trac as an SCGI process. You can either start it manually, or better yet, automatically by letting Cherokee spawn the server whenever it is down.
     86
     87First set up an information source in cherokee-admin with a local interpreter:
     88
     89{{{
     90Host:
     91localhost:4433
     92
     93Interpreter:
     94/usr/bin/tracd —single-env —daemonize —protocol=scgi —hostname=localhost —port=4433 /path/to/project/
     95}}}
     96
     97If the port was not reachable, the interpreter command would be launched. Note that, in the definition of the information source, you will have to manually launch the spawner if you use a ''Remote host'' as ''Information source'' instead of a ''Local interpreter''.
     98
     99After doing this, we will just have to create a new rule managed by the SCGI handler to access Trac. It can be created in a new virtual server, trac.example.net for instance, and will only need two rules. The '''default''' one will use the SCGI handler associated to the previously created information source.
     100The second rule will be there to serve the few static files needed to correctly display the Trac interface. Create it as ''Directory rule'' for ''/common'' and just set it to the ''Static files'' handler and with a ''Document root'' that points to the appropriate files: ''$TRAC_LOCAL/htdocs/'' (where $TRAC_LOCAL is a directory defined by the user or the system administrator to place local Trac resources).
     101
     102'''Note:''' If the tracd process fails to start up, and Cherokee displays a 503 error page, you might be missing the [http://trac.saddi.com/flup python-flup] package ([trac:#9903]). Python-flup is a dependency which provides Trac with SCGI capability. You can install it on Debian based systems with:
     103{{{#!sh
     104sudo apt-get install python-flup
     105}}}
     106
     107== Lighttpd Configuration
     108
     109The FastCGI front-end was developed primarily for use with alternative webservers, such as [http://www.lighttpd.net/ Lighttpd].
     110
     111Lighttpd is a secure, fast, compliant and very flexible web-server that has been optimized for high-performance environments. It has a very low memory footprint compared to other web servers and takes care of CPU load.
     112
     113For using `trac.fcgi`(prior to 0.11) / fcgi_frontend.py (0.11) with Lighttpd add the following to your lighttpd.conf:
     114{{{
     115#var.fcgi_binary="/usr/bin/python /path/to/fcgi_frontend.py" # 0.11 if installed with easy_setup, it is inside the egg directory
     116var.fcgi_binary="/path/to/cgi-bin/trac.fcgi" # 0.10 name of prior fcgi executable
    89117fastcgi.server = ("/trac" =>
     118   
    90119                   ("trac" =>
    91120                     ("socket" => "/tmp/trac-fastcgi.sock",
    92                       "bin-path" => "/path/to/cgi-bin/trac.fcgi",
     121                      "bin-path" => fcgi_binary,
    93122                      "check-local" => "disable",
    94123                      "bin-environment" =>
     
    99128}}}
    100129
    101 Note that you will need to add a new entry to `fastcgi.server` for each separate Trac instance that you wish to run. Alternatively, you may use the `TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR` variable instead of `TRAC_ENV` as described above,
    102 and you may set one of the two in `trac.fcgi` instead of in `lighttpd.conf`
    103 using `bin-environment` (as in the section above on Apache configuration).
     130Note that you will need to add a new entry to `fastcgi.server` for each separate Trac instance that you wish to run. Alternatively, you may use the `TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR` variable instead of `TRAC_ENV` as described above, and you may set one of the two in `trac.fcgi` instead of in `lighttpd.conf` using `bin-environment`, as in the section above on Apache configuration.
     131
     132Note that Lighttpd has a bug related to 'SCRIPT_NAME' and 'PATH_INFO' when the uri of fastcgi.server is '/' instead of '/trac' in this example (see [trac:#2418]). This is fixed in Lighttpd 1.5, and under Lighttpd 1.4.23 or later the workaround is to add `"fix-root-scriptname" => "enable"` as a parameter of fastcgi.server.
    104133
    105134For using two projects with lighttpd add the following to your `lighttpd.conf`:
     
    108137                   ("first" =>
    109138                    ("socket" => "/tmp/trac-fastcgi-first.sock",
    110                      "bin-path" => "/path/to/cgi-bin/trac.fcgi",
     139                     "bin-path" => fcgi_binary,
    111140                     "check-local" => "disable",
    112141                     "bin-environment" =>
     
    117146                    ("second" =>
    118147                    ("socket" => "/tmp/trac-fastcgi-second.sock",
    119                      "bin-path" => "/path/to/cgi-bin/trac.fcgi",
     148                     "bin-path" => fcgi_binary,
    120149                     "check-local" => "disable",
    121150                     "bin-environment" =>
     
    125154                )
    126155}}}
    127 Note that field values are different.  If you prefer setting the environment
    128 variables in the `.fcgi` scripts, then copy/rename `trac.fcgi`, e.g., to
    129 `first.fcgi` and `second.fcgi`, and reference them in the above settings.
    130 Note that the above will result in different processes in any event, even
    131 if both are running from the same `trac.fcgi` script.
    132 {{{

    177 
    178 Note that lighttpd doesn't support 'valid-user' in versions prior to 1.3.16.

     205
     206Conditional configuration is also useful for mapping static resources, ie serving out images and CSS directly instead of through FastCGI:
    181207{{{
    182208# Aliasing functionality is needed
    183209server.modules += ("mod_alias")
    184210
    185 # Setup an alias for the static resources
     211# Set up an alias for the static resources
    186212alias.url = ("/trac/chrome/common" => "/usr/share/trac/htdocs")
    187213
     
    193219                   ("trac" =>
    194220                     ("socket" => "/tmp/trac-fastcgi.sock",
    195                       "bin-path" => "/path/to/cgi-bin/trac.fcgi",
     221                      "bin-path" => fcgi_binary,
    196222                      "check-local" => "disable",

     230
    204231The technique can be easily adapted for use with multiple projects by creating aliases for each of them, and wrapping the fastcgi.server declarations inside conditional configuration blocks.
    205 Also there is another way to handle multiple projects and it's to use TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR instead of TRAC_ENV and use global auth, let's see an example:

     335== Nginx Configuration
     336
     337[http://nginx.org/en/ Nginx] is able to communicate with FastCGI processes, but can not spawn them. So you need to start FastCGI server for Trac separately.
     338

     411     import trac.web._fcgi
     412
     413     fcgiserv = trac.web._fcgi.WSGIServer(dispatch_request,
     414          bindAddress = sockaddr, umask = 7)
     415     fcgiserv.run()
     416
     417except SystemExit:

     419except Exception, e:

     425    print e
     426    print
     427    import traceback
     428    import StringIO
     429    tb = StringIO.StringIO()
     430    traceback.print_exc(file=tb)
     431    print tb.getvalue()
     432
     433}}}
     434 1. Reload nginx and launch trac.fcgi:
     435 {{{#!sh
     436trac@trac.example ~ $ ./trac-standalone-fcgi.py
     437}}}
     438
     439The above assumes that:
     440 * There is a user named 'trac' for running Trac instances and keeping Trac environments in its home directory
     441 * `/home/trac/instance` contains a Trac environment
     442 * `/home/trac/htpasswd` contains authentication information
     443 * `/home/trac/run` is owned by the same group the Nginx runs under
     444  * and if your system is Linux the `/home/trac/run` has setgid bit set (`chmod g+s run`)
     445  * and patch from [trac:#7239] is applied, or you'll have to fix the socket file permissions every time
     446
     447Unfortunately Nginx does not support variable expansion in fastcgi_pass directive.
     448Thus it is not possible to serve multiple Trac instances from one server block.
     449
     450If you worry enough about security, run Trac instances under separate users.
     451
     452Another way to run Trac as a FCGI external application is offered in [trac:#6224].
