    98CGI script is the entrypoint that web-server calls when a web-request to an application is made. To generate the `trac.cgi` script run:
    10 {{{#!sh
     9{{{
    1110trac-admin /path/to/env deploy /path/to/www/trac
    1211}}}
    1312`trac.cgi` will be in the `cgi-bin` folder inside the given path. ''Make sure it is executable by your web server''. This command also copies `static resource` files to a `htdocs` directory of a given destination.

    1716In [http://httpd.apache.org/ Apache] there are two ways to run Trac as CGI:
    1817
    1918 1. Use a `ScriptAlias` directive that maps an URL to the `trac.cgi` script (recommended)
    20  1. Copy the `trac.cgi` file into the directory for CGI executables used by your web server (commonly named `cgi-bin`). You can also create a symbolic link, but in that case make sure that the `FollowSymLinks` option is enabled for the `cgi-bin` directory.
     19 2. Copy the `trac.cgi` file into the directory for CGI executables used by your web server (commonly named `cgi-bin`). You can also create a symbolic link, but in that case make sure that the `FollowSymLinks` option is enabled for the `cgi-bin` directory.
    2120
    2221To make Trac available at `http://yourhost.example.org/trac` add `ScriptAlias` directive to Apache configuration file, changing `trac.cgi` path to match your installation:
    23 {{{#!apache
     22{{{
    2423ScriptAlias /trac /path/to/www/trac/cgi-bin/trac.cgi
    2524}}}
     
    2827
    2928If you're using Trac with a single project you need to set its location using the `TRAC_ENV` environment variable:
    30 {{{#!apache
     29{{{
    3130<Location "/trac">
    3231  SetEnv TRAC_ENV "/path/to/projectenv"
     
    3534
    3635Or to use multiple projects you can specify their common parent directory using the `TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR` variable:
    37 {{{#!apache
     36{{{
    3837<Location "/trac">
    3938  SetEnv TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR "/path/to/project/parent/dir"
     
    4342 ''Note that the `SetEnv` directive requires enabled `mod_env` module. It is also possible to set TRAC_ENV in trac.cgi. Just add the following code between "try:" and "from trac.web ...":''
    4443
    45 {{{#!python
     44{{{
    4645    import os
    4746    os.environ['TRAC_ENV'] = "/path/to/projectenv"
     
    5049 '' Or for TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR: ''
    5150
    52 {{{#!python
     51{{{
    5352    import os
    5453    os.environ['TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR'] = "/path/to/project/parent/dir"
    5554}}}

    5958On some systems, you ''may'' need to edit the shebang line in the `trac.cgi` file to point to your real Python installation path. On a Windows system you may need to configure Windows to know how to execute a .cgi file (Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> File Types -> CGI).
