Configuring Trac

path = <path_to_the_doxygen_documentation>

Configuring Apache

DoxygenPlugin requires mod_include to be enabled. There is a known bug with mod_include and Trac. You will need to add the following to your VirtualHost

ErrorDocument 401 default

Configuring Doxygen

The only configuration tag that is required in to make this plugin work is 'GENERATE_HTML'. Since this plugin just embeds the html pages generated be doxygen you will probably want to define a custom header and footer.

HTML_HEADER            = TracHeader.html
HTML_FOOTER            = TracFooter.html

These files must contain something, a blank line is sufficient, or doxygen will put in the defaults. My TracHeader.html contains the following:

<style type="text/css">
        h1 { text-align: center; }

and my TracFooter.html contains a blank line.

To enable the search option the SEARCHENGINE tag must be set to 'YES'.
