# Unsupported version control system "svn" after configuration

Reported by: Owned by: Karen normal SELECT A HACK normal 1.0

### Description

I do not know what hack this applies to, but I thought that posting this here is more appropriate than posting it on the main trac website.

My setup is as follows:

Apache 2.2
Subversion 1.7.6
Trac 1.0
Python 2.7
OS: Windows

I followed the TracInstall to the point and installed the corresponding bindings (copied the libsvn and svn folders to \Python27\Lib\site-packages.

However when I access my trac website, i get the following warning:

Can't synchronize with repository "demoproject" (Unsupported version control system "svn": Can't find an appropriate component, maybe the corresponding plugin was not enabled? ). Look in the Trac log for more information.


I looked at trac log has no errors in it.

I edited my trac.ini manually for it to have references to my reposititories, because going the trac-admin route gives me another issue:

Trying to:

trac-admin c:\Repositories\trac repository add demoproject C:\Repositories\svn\demoproject svn


Results in:

TracError: The repository type 'svn' is not supported


When I login as TRAC_ADMIN user and go to the Manage Plugins screen, I see that I have no plugins installed whatsoever and there is a "Browse" and "Install" button with "Upload a plugin packaged as Python egg." next to it.

What plugin do I need if any? I remember setting up Trac with SVN a long time ago and it worked fine back then. Any help is greatly appreciated.

• Resolution set to invalid
• Status changed from new to closed

Questions such as this one should go to the t:MailingList.

However, I can offer some quick suggestions. Did you enabled the tracopt.versioncontrol.svn.* component? You may also want to take a look at t:0.12/TracFaq#i-am-getting-svn-import-errors-with-trac-what-s-going-on. If you still have no luck fixing the issue, I suggest posting to the t:MailingList. You can follow-up here and I will try to help you, but you'll reach a wider audience on the mailing list.

Thank you very much rjollos! Enabling that component did the trick and my site is up and running now.
