#4971 closed defect (fixed)

NeverNotifyUpdater plugin wrecked my trac!

Reported by: rantingman@… Owned by: bobbysmith007
Priority: normal Component: NeverNotifyUpdaterPlugin
Severity: critical Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11

Description

I downloaded the 0.11 version of the NeverNotifyUpdater plugin. I went to Admin->Plugins on my trac, and attempted to install it by pointing it at the "setup.py" file and clicking Install. I have never installed a plugin before, so I was just doing what seemed obvious.

Now my entire trac is broken - even after restarting apache.

Surely trac should be more resilient than that?

Grateful for any tips. If this really is a vulnerability (to ignorance) in Trac, I will happily file a ticket at trac.edgewall.org

Never mind. I worked out that all I had to do was remove setup.py and setup.pyc from the plugins dir and then restart apache.

Just fyi: as noted in the text near that box, it expects you to point it at a .egg file rather than the setup.py file. You can get an egg from the setup.py by typing something like:
python setup.py bdist_egg into a command line.

Also you might want to take a glance at: http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracPlugins

Thanks - yes, I've got it installed and working now. I had never heard of a "python egg" before, so I didn't realise it expected a .egg file.

Btw, is it supposed to show up in Admin->Plugins? There's no trace of it, though it is definitely working! I just wondered.
