    4 Trac configuration is done by editing the '''`trac.ini`''' config file, located in `<projectenv>/conf/trac.ini`.
     6Trac is configured by editing 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.
    57
    6 == Global Configuration ==
     8Trac monitors the timestamp of the file to trigger a complete environment reload and flush its caches 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.
    79
    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
    911
    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/siteconfig.py` 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:
     13{{{#!ini
     14[inherit]
     15file = /path/to/global/trac.ini
     16}}}
     17Multiple files can be specified using a comma-separated list.

    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 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.

    14 This is a brief reference of available configuration options.
     21There 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.

    16 == [trac] ==
    17 || `database`        || [wiki:TracEnvironment#DatabaseConnectionStrings Database connection string] for this project ||
    18 || `default_charset` || Charset used in text files in the subversion repository (default is `iso-8859-15`) ||
    19 || `default_handler` || Name of the component that handles requests to the base URL (default is `WikiHandler`) (''since 0.9'') ||
    20 || `repository_dir`  || Path to local Subversion repository ||
    21 || `authz_file`      || Path to Subversion [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch06s04.html#svn-ch-6-sect-4.4.2 authorization (authz) file]. ||
    22 || `authz_module_name` || The module prefix used in the `authz_file` (See FineGrainedPermissions)||
    23 || `check_auth_ip` || Whether the IP address of the user should be checked for authentication (true, false) (''since 0.9'') ||
    24 || `ignore_auth_case` || Whether case should be ignored for login names (true, false) (''since 0.9'') ||
    25 || `templates_dir`   || Path to the !ClearSilver templates ||
     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 still to write a custom plugin doing an appropriate `ITemplateStreamFilter` transformation.

    94 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.
    95 
    96 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.
    97 
    98 Consider the following configuration snippet:
    99 {{{
    100 [components]
    101 trac.ticket.report.ReportModule = disabled
    102 webadmin.* = enabled
     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.
     30{{{ #!comment
     31Please don't waste your time by editing the HTML code below, changes won't be picked up. Instead, follow the above guidance for suggesting documentation improvements.
    10332}}}
    104 
    105 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.
    106 
    107 See the ''Plugins'' page on ''About Trac'' to get the list of active components (requires `CONFIG_VIEW` [wiki:TracPermissions permissions].)

    110 
    111   ''Note that prior to Trac r2335 (that applies to 0.9b1 and 0.9b2), you would use a `[disabled_components]` section instead. See a [http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/wiki/TracIni?version=42 previous version] of this page for the details.''
