How to Install Agilo on Trac at Webfaction

December 30th, 2009

Here are the steps I did to successfully install Agilo for Scrum (open-source version) in my Trac site at Webfaction.com:

  1. download agilo-source-latest.tar.gz
  2. create a python2.4 egg version of Agilo Open.  Since I don’t have Python 2.4 in my Ubuntu 9.04 laptop I tried installing.  However, it gives an error when compiling agilo it gives a “setuptools not installed” error, I dropped the process and did the following instead:
    1. copy agilo-source-latest.tar.gz to your webfaction account
    2. extract Agilo in a temporary folder
    3. tar xvf agilo-source-latest.tar.gz
    4. cd to the extracted Agilo directory
    5. compile in python2.4
    6. python2.4 setup.py bdist_egg
    7. copy the Agilo egg file from the dist folder into your local disk
  3. install agilo to trac refer to http://www.agile42.com/cms/pages/download-install/
    1. upload Agilo egg in your Trac site’s plugins
    2. login to your Webfaction shell
    3. edit trac.ini at (trac-project-dir)/conf/trac.ini
    4. look for the [components] section – in my case I added it because it does not exist yet
      agilo.* = enabled
      # the following lines are only required to use Agilo Pro
      agilo_common.* = enabled
      agilo_pro.* = enabled
    5. upgrade trac so that the agilo tables will be created in the Trac database
    6. (trac-project-dir)/bin/trac-admin . upgrade
  4. upgrade Genshi from 0.5 to 0.5.1
    1. download from Genshi-0.5.1-py2.4-linux-x86_64.egg
    2. upload Genshi egg in your Trac site’s plugins
  5. reload your Trac site and Agilo Open must have been enabled


* when in doubt, enable logging in your Trac site and read the log at (trac-project-dir)/log/trac.log – this is how I fixed my problems with  Genshi 0.5.1 dependency of Agilo Open 0.8.4

Here are some caveats on my Trac setup:

  • it uses Python 2.4;
  • it uses Trac 0.11.4;
  • it uses Genshi 0.5;

    I was suggested this website by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him
    as no one else know such detailed about my difficulty. You’re wonderful!

    I don’t even understand how I stopped up here, however I believed this submit was once great.
    I do not know who you’re however certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger in case you
    aren’t already. Cheers!

    It’s actually very difficult in this busy life to
    listen news on TV, so I just use web for that reason, and take the latest information.

    Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am
    a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of
    us have created some nice procedures and we are looking to
    swap solutions with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
    could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
    and was hoping maybe you would have some experience
    with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your
    new updates.

    certainly like your web site however you need
    to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling
    problems and I in finding it very troublesome to inform the reality then again I will definitely come back

    I have been browsing onpine more than 2 hours today,yet I neve found any
    interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.

    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers mace good content aas you did, the web will be muhch more useful than ever before.

    Since that time, though, I figured out a sneaky way to spot the
    better paying places to take surveys online. Members may
    also earn as many as 5000 points at a time by requesting an auto
    or home insurance quote through a My – Points link, and then actually purchasing the insurance policy.
    It does not matter in which place you are, there’ll actually be a place which
    will show comedy entertainment.
