Problems installing the plugin globally

Reported by: jwm@… Owned by: Matt Good
Priority: normal Component: AccountManagerPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: needinfo
Cc: Trac Release: 0.9


What I did:

Installed the plugin into site-packages, unziped with:

easy_install --always-unzip TracAccountManager-0.1.2.egg

Things that happened:

  1. The templates for form based logins weren't detected until I copied them into the global template directory.
  2. On a login attempt, the plugin couldn't find an account-manager.password_format setting, for

some reason. It made no difference as to whether the settings where in the site wide or instance specific trac.ini.

It works correctly when the egg file is placed under the instance plugin directory,

The template problem was already fixed in r1064.

I always use the plugin installed globally, so I've never had problems with it not picking up the config. Can up update your installation from SVN? If it is still not working with a global install can you give a little more description of your config, specifically which modules of the AccountManagerPlugin you've enabled?

If I use AccountManagerPlugin as a plugin inside a trac environment, all is working well.

If I use the AccountManagerPlugin as a global plugin under the lib/python2.4/site-package, I get this error:

  File "/usr/local/stow/python-2.4.3/lib/python2.4/site-packages/TracAccountManager-0.1.2.egg/acct_mgr/", line 160, in wrap
    return func(self, *args, **kwds)
  File "/usr/local/stow/python-2.4.3/lib/python2.4/site-packages/TracAccountManager-0.1.2.egg/acct_mgr/", line 167, in authenticate
    req.remote_user = self._remote_user(req)
  File "/usr/local/stow/python-2.4.3/lib/python2.4/site-packages/TracAccountManager-0.1.2.egg/acct_mgr/", line 189, in _remote_user
  File "/usr/local/stow/python-2.4.3/lib/python2.4/site-packages/TracAccountManager-0.1.2.egg/acct_mgr/", line 94, in check_password
    return self.password_store.check_password(user, password)
  File "/usr/local/stow/python-2.4.3/lib/python2.4/site-packages/TracAccountManager-0.1.2.egg/acct_mgr/", line 105, in password_store
    raise TracError('No password store found.  Please configure '
TracError: No password store found.  Please configure "account-manager.password_format" in trac.ini.

The trac.ini is the same and contains:

password_format = htpasswd
password_file = /data/svn/etc/passwd


trac.web.auth.LoginModule = disabled
acct_mgr.web_ui.LoginModule = enabled

will be found and works as expected, but the [account-manager] in the same trac.ini will not be found :(

I've run into the same problem, though the error is a bit misleading.

Changed the error message in my install to:

raise TracError('Password store "%s" not found in "%s". Please configure '

'"account-manager.password_format" in trac.ini.' % (fmt, self.stores) )

This shows that "fmt" is indeed being picked up, but self.stores is an empty array.

More info: trac 0.9.6

installed from svn: easy_install --always-unzip ntmanagerplugin/0.9


[components] acct_mgr.web_ui.LoginModule = disabled acct_mgr.web_ui.RegistrationModule = enabled [account-manager] password_format = htpasswd password_file = /var/access/trac.demo.htpasswd

Ok, you need to enable the component that actually handles the "htpasswd" format. That would be "acct_mgr.htfile.HtPasswdStore". You should also enable "acct_mgr.api.AccountManager".

I'm in the process of reworking the docs to provide some more explanation of all the components and when you should enable them, so hopefully this will be more clear shortly.

Resolution: worksforme
Status: newclosed

The documentation has been updated regarding the enabling of components, so hopefully that will help.
