Hi,

Trying to install the Account Manager plugin in my Trac installation, I issue this command line:

PYTHONPATH=/home/mnc/webapps/mobiletrac/lib/python2.4 easy_install-2.4 https://trac-hacks.org/svn/accountmanagerplugin/trunk/

..as per the instructions here:

http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/AccountManagerPlugin

And the error I get is:

Downloading https://trac-hacks.org/svn/accountmanagerplugin/trunk/ error: Unexpected HTML page found at https://trac-hacks.org/svn/accountmanagerplugin/trunk/

One forum post (external) seems to think this has something to do with the version of easy_install I'm using (Make sure you have a version >= 0.6c9), but I'm not sure what version WebFaction has installed.

Any ideas how to get this to work?

Thanks! marc

Hi,

The problem seems to be the version of setuptools used by us.

I was able to do the install using:

cd ~
easy_install -U setuptools
~/bin/easy_install https://trac-hacks.org/svn/accountmanagerplugin/trunk

You might get a certificate warning which you can accept temporarily. Hope that helps!

Note that the steps above are only needed for a Trac+Subversion app (which uses Python 2.4).

Our Trac+Git app uses Python 2.7, and the installed setuptools for that Python does not need to be upgraded for this to work.

If you want to install the AccountManager plugin on a Trac+Git app, you can do so with:

cd ~/webapps/trac
PYTHONPATH=$PWD/lib/python2.7 easy_install-2.7 \
    -s $PWD/bin -d $PWD/lib/python2.7 \
