What needs to be done:
- Install Python 2.6 and Trac for 2.6
- Build a new version of mod_python
- Optionally Replace Apache DLLs (mostly if you followed my previous guide)
You’ll need Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition or any retail version of VS 2008 if you want to build your own mod_python for 2.6 (I’ll provide a precompiled one in this post).
You’ll probably also want to easy_install Pygments for source highlighting.
Building mod_python for 2.6
This guide to mod_python covers the creation and installation of a compatible version of the module.
At this point, you should be able to restart Apache and load up your “old” Trac on Python 2.6, but with the error message that “svn” support is not installed.
A pre-built version of this can be found here: mod_python-3.3.2-dev-20080819.win32-py2.6.exe
Python SVN bindings
Most recent version as of this writing is the SVN 1.6.6 version of the bindings.
Replacing Apache DLLs to make libsvn work
Note: Only use these instructions if you experience problems, and/or you’re running a self-built version of the Python SVN bindings already.
There’s a slight difference between libapr-1.dll as supplied with Apache 2.2 and the one we built together with libsvn, so the fix is to replace the one in your Apache2.2\bin folder with the one from your Python2.6\Lib\site-packages\libsvn folder (copy the libsvn_*.dlls from the same folder into the Apache2.2\bin folder if you still get problems).
Restarting Apache now should make Trac work fully, with Subversion support.
