GitError: GIT control files not found

Reported by: tmontuori@… Owned by: hvr
Priority: normal Component: GitPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


Attempted to use GitPlugin (v.; most recent SVN version as of today) to provide git repository support for a project. GitPlugin installs just fine using python-setuptools. Too, when using tracd to host, the plugin works fine. However, when using mod_python, I get this error:

Trac detected an internal error:

GitError: GIT control files not found, maybe wrong directory?

I think that the problem is in this mess:

...but just in case I'm wrong, I've attached my trac.log and trac.ini files.

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

Figured out what the issue is; the git repo wasn't owned by the user that Apache/mod_python runs as.

Bit of a nuisance, but makes sense anyway.

/!\ NOTE: the Test.git above needs to be the .git repository directory (i.e. the one containing the file HEAD and config), not the working tree directory that holds the .git/ folder.
