Error attempting to run WindowsServiceScript

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: flox
Priority: normal Component: WindowsServiceScript
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


I would like to run trac as a windows service.

I'm running trac, tracd, WindowsServiceScript, and windows 2k.

I can install the service and it shows up as a windows service. When I try to start the service, it fails, with this message in the event log:

The instance's SvcRun() method failed  File "C:\Program Files\Python24\Lib\site-packages\win32\lib\", line 785, in SvcRun
 File "C:\Program Files\Python24\Scripts\", line 94, in SvcDoRun
   self.httpd = self.trac_init()
 File "C:\Program Files\Python24\Scripts\", line 143, in trac_init
   wsgi_app = TracEnvironMiddleware(dispatch_request, exceptions.NameError: global name 'dispatch_request' is not defined

Any ideas as to what this means and how to fix it?

Or any suggestions for other ways to do this?

are u sure u did not forget to include statement:

"from trac.web.main import dispatch_request"

(i never tried the patched script on 0.10)

You're right, this was an editing error on my part. Thanks for your help.
