To keeps things as smooth as possible I stepped up to ubuntu 7.04
with a clean server install using the LAMP choice:
Apache/2.2.3 (Ubuntu) DAV/2 SVN/1.4.3 mod_python/3.2.10 Python/2.5.1
PHP/5.2.1 mod_ssl/2.2.3 OpenSSL/0.9.8c
To benefit from the latest bugfixes I installed kforge from trunk
which worked pretty smoothly except from some missing packages which
were taken care of using apt-get.
I still had to hatch the kforge egg to get authentication working.
Also, I need to log in through the kforge interface - if I try to
access a (trac) service directly I get a "Forbidden" message without
any password dialog. I'm still happy it works by entering through
kforge first though..! Accessing svn through the terminal works fine
- is the problem maybe trac specific?
What's the status on the www and dav services? They are not enabled
by default, and I don't really know how to enable them through the
kforge-admin shell (since the admin web interface is currently down).
What are the commands to enable them?
