Description (last modified by coderanger)

Hi, i have install accountmanager with this command: easy_install

Everything was ok. I see it in webadmin/plugins. But when i begin with checking options for this plugin, it finish with error (error is only when one of these 3 options are checked: AccountModule,LoginModule,RegistrationModule;others are without error).

Here is the error:

ExtractionError: Can't extract file(s) to egg cache

The following error occurred while trying to extract file(s) to the Python egg

  [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/nonexistent'

The Python egg cache directory is currently set to:


Perhaps your account does not have write access to this directory?  You can
change the cache directory by setting the PYTHON_EGG_CACHE environment
variable to point to an accessible directory.

I have tried many options but without success. Please, can you help me with this problem?

You need to set the PYTHON_EGG_CACHE environment variable, just like the error message says. This is explained in the TracPlugins page.

Ok, i use this: SetEnv PYTHON_EGG_CACHE /path/to/dir . What is this directory '/path/to/dir' pls? And when I use SetEnv, it says to me bad command.

The directory can be anywhere that the Apache user can write to. It just needs temp space to extract some files. Please ask on the t:MailingList for more help since this is an installation question, not a bug in this plugin.
