#6231 closed defect (worksforme)

install of Trac XML-RPC Plugin fails using supplied instructions

Reported by: jrem@… Owned by: osimons
Priority: normal Component: XmlRpcPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11

Description (last modified by osimons)

This plugin is unable to be installed since the instruction

# easy_install -Z -U

fails with error: Unexpected HMTL page found at

while also there is no clear instruction as to how to install the given zip file.

Unzipping the file and cd'ing into the directory where is then running the command:

# python tracrpc

didn't work either. The result is a directive on usage followed by invalid command 'tracrpc'

Run out of guesses as to what to try next...

If you download the source or do a checkout, then just running the setup file with appropriate command - like:

$ python install

See python --help and --help-commands for details of setup capabilities and options.

The error you are seeing is some setuptools/subversion bug of some sort - seen it reported elsewhere, but never really looked into the specifics of the actual error. Not really related to the plugin, and not much I can do about it.

Unpacking the zip, moving into the directory where is, then running the command:

python install


Was trying to get TracExplorer working with visual studio and this was what was needed to get it working, and it does, so all good now.
