Trac Installation Project (Action Support)

Desired Outcome
Installation of Trac within my 1and1 Unlimited Account, to keep track of all web-based development projects

20150528 Trying to understand the command line for the Trac installation:

python install –prefix=$HOME/bin/python

I can understand how to get into the installer directory, but not understanding the –prefix part. Also, getting an error re: SystemTools

Q: What are the parts that make up the command line?

Understanding requirements and components needed for installation

-Making an SSH connection into
20150509 is the account I would need to use as it has capability for SSH connections. I followed this instruction set and it worked — I just needed to find the original username and password, which is the same as the original ftp address on the account.

-Installing the system

Following instructions from:
Note: The latest version for Trac is Trac-1.0.5.tar.gz

mkdir install_trac_files (Make a directory)
cd install_trac_files (Go into directory)
wget (Get the install files)
tar xzvf Trac-1.0.5.tar.gz (Unpack)
cd Trac-1.0.5 (Go into Directory)
python install –prefix=$HOME/bin/python (Setup Python — I think…)

Error after the python statement
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 17, in
from setuptools import setup, find_packages
ImportError: No module named setuptools

This is a web-site that assists with Python install —

This site talks about installing Python on 1and1 —

Note: I’m thinking that I need to install Python before running the commands from Chris Jackson

This is info from 1and1 re: Python —

-Configuring the system

Integrating system with other systems, eg wiki
