Apache Htgroups Plugin

Notice: This plugin is deprecated in favor of the UserManagerPlugin or HtGroupEditorPlugin.


Trac plugin to enable the same group file that you use with Apache's AuthGroupFile or AuthDigestGroupFile directive to be a provider of group membership information.

For Trac 0.11 this plugin depends on ClearSilver. Consider the UserManagerPlugin or the Genshi-based HtGroupEditorPlugin as alternatives.

Requires setup in trac.ini

If you are not using the AccountManagerPlugin:

group_file = /var/trac/trac.htgroups

If you are using the AccountManagerPlugin:

group_file = /var/trac/trac.htgroups

See its documentation for more configuration options. Current plugin versions support only Trac versions down to 0.11 now.

Why the two variants? The original plan was to extend the AccountManagerPlugin to manage the group file as well. There is instead another handy plugin to this this now: the TracHtGroupEditorPlugin
