Dear Kforge / KnowledgeForge users,
I am trying to install a few Trac plugins for agile software project
Using the Trac "admin" interface, I can upload the plugin fine:
I have checked inside the 'plugins' directory using WebDav, and the
'.egg' files are there, like expected.
However, it seems that the Trac plugin list is not updated properly,
as none of the new plugins actually appear here.
Using WebDav, I can edit the Trac configuration file (conf/trac.ini)
to directly enable the plugins:
timingandestimationplugin.* = enabled
burndown.* = enabled
worklog.* = enabled
...but this does not seems to work.
I think this is because for most plugins, the following command line
instruction is needed to complete installation:
$trac-admin /path/to/projenv upgrade
However this is impossible as KnowledgeForge does not provide a shell
Actually, the httpd / tracd server should also be restarted in order
to understand the URLs for the new plugin functionality. That of
course is not something a KnowledgeForge can do ;)
I thought I would be able to read the Trac log in order to find a
solution to this problem, but even the log doesn't work (no file is
generated in my WebDav mounted filesystem):
I have tried log-out + log-in, without success.
Trac is great, but without plugins, the collaborative functionality
is pretty limited.
Thanks for helping ! :)
Kind regards, Daniel.
