     1= The Trac Configuration File
    4 Trac configuration is done by editing the '''`trac.ini`''' config file, located in `<projectenv>/conf/trac.ini`.
     6Trac is configured through the **`trac.ini`** file, located in the `<projectenv>/conf` directory. The `trac.ini` configuration file and its parent directory should be writable by the web server.
    6 == Global Configuration ==
     8Trac monitors the timestamp of the file to trigger an environment reload when the timestamp changes. Most changes to the configuration will be 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 [#GlobalConfiguration global configuration] file when none was previously present.
    8 Since version 0.9, Trac can also read the configuration from a global `trac.ini` file. These global options will then be merged with the environment-specific options, where local options override global options.
     10== Global Configuration
    10 The global configuration is by default localted in `$prefix/share/trac/conf/trac.ini`. It can be moved to a different location (for example, `/etc/trac.ini`), but that requires changing the file `trac/` which gets created when Trac is installed.
     12Configuration can be shared among environments using one or more global configuration files. Options in the global configuration will be merged with the environment-specific options, with local options overriding global options. The global configuration file is specified as follows:
     15file = /path/to/global/trac.ini
     17Multiple files can be specified using a comma-separated list. Non-absolute paths are relative to the Environment `conf` directory.
    12 == Reference ==
     19Note 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 specify `--inherit` 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 in the global file.
    14 This is a brief reference of available configuration options.
     21There are three more options in the [#inherit-section "[inherit]"] section, [#inherit-templates_dir-option templates_dir] for sharing global templates, [#inherit-htdocs_dir-option htdocs_dir] for sharing global htdocs and [TracIni#inherit-plugins_dir-option plugins_dir], for sharing plugins. Those options can be specified in the shared configuration file, and in fact, configuration files can even be chained if you specify another `[inherit] file` there.
     23Note that the templates found in the `templates/` directory of the TracEnvironment have precedence over those found in `[inherit] templates_dir`. In turn, the latter have precedence over the installed templates, so be careful about what you put there. Notably, if you override a default template, refresh your modifications when you upgrade to a new version of Trac. The preferred way to perform TracInterfaceCustomization is to write a custom plugin doing an appropriate `ITemplateStreamFilter` transformation.
     25== Reference for settings
     27This is a reference of available configuration options, and their default settings.
     29Documentation improvements should be discussed on the [trac:MailingList#Trac-dev trac-dev mailing list] or described in a [trac:NewTicket ticket]. Even better, [trac:TracDev/SubmittingPatches submit a patch] against the docstrings in the code.
    18 == [components] ==
    19 (''since 0.9'')
     33== Configure Error Reporting
    21 This 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.
     35The error reporting page has a //Create// button for reporting
     36issues. The site to which issues are reported depends on the
     37configuration of the Trac site and the user’s permissions.
    23 The option name is either the fully qualified name of the components or the module/package prefix of the component. The former enables/disables a specific component, while the latter enables/disables any component in the specified package/module.
     39If the user doesn’t possess TRAC_ADMIN, the site to which a user is directed to create a ticket is determined by the [[#project-admin_trac_url-option|"[trac] admin_trac_url"]] setting:
    25 Consider the following configuration snippet:
    26 {{{
    27 [components]
    28 = disabled
    29 webadmin.* = enabled
    30 }}}
     41* If empty, there will be no //Create// button.
     42* If set to the default value (`.`), the ticket will be
     43  created on the site which the error occurred.
     44* Otherwise the ticket will be created at the site pointed
     45  to by `admin_trac_url`.
    32 The first option tells Trac to disable the [wiki:TracReports report module]. The second option instructs Trac to enable all components in the `webadmin` package. Note that the trailing wildcard is required for module/package matching.
     47If [[#project-admin-option|"[project] admin"]] is not empty, the administrator's email address will be rendered on the error page.
    34 See the ''Plugins'' page on ''About Trac'' to get the list of active components (requires `CONFIG_VIEW` [wiki:TracPermissions permissions].)

    38   ''Note that prior to Trac r2335 (that applies to 0.9b1 and 0.9b2), you would use a `[disabled_components]` section instead. See a [ previous version] of this page for the details.''
     49If the user possesses TRAC_ADMIN, the //Create// button will direct the user to report the issue on If the error was generated in a plugin, the error will be reported to the project URL provided that the plugin author has included the project URL in the plugin installation data. The user possessing TRAC_ADMIN also sees a traceback and system information on the error page.
