    8695== Using Authentication ==
    128137This section describes how to use `tracd` with Apache .htpasswd files.
     139  Note: It is necessary (at least with Python 2.6) to install the fcrypt package in order to
     140  decode some htpasswd formats.  Trac source code attempt an `import crypt` first, but there
     141  is no such package for Python 2.6. Only `SHA-1` passwords (since Trac 1.0) work without this module.
    130143To create a .htpasswd file use Apache's `htpasswd` command (see [#GeneratingPasswordsWithoutApache below] for a method to create these files without using Apache):
    152165If you have Apache available, you can use the htdigest command to generate the password file. Type 'htdigest' to get some usage instructions, or read [ this page] from the Apache manual to get precise instructions.  You'll be prompted for a password to enter for each user that you create.  For the name of the password file, you can use whatever you like, but if you use something like `users.htdigest` it will remind you what the file contains. As a suggestion, put it in your <projectname>/conf folder along with the [TracIni trac.ini] file.
    154 Note that you can start tracd without the --auth argument, but if you click on the ''Login'' link you will get an error.

    156169=== Generating Passwords Without Apache ===
    158 Basic Authorization can be accomplished via this [ online HTTP Password generator].  Copy the generated password-hash line to the .htpasswd file on your system.
     171Basic Authorization can be accomplished via this [ online HTTP Password generator] which also supports `SHA-1`.  Copy the generated password-hash line to the .htpasswd file on your system. Note that Windows Python lacks the "crypt" module that is the default hash type for htpasswd ; Windows Python can grok MD5 password hashes just fine and you should use MD5.
    160173You can use this simple Python script to generate a '''digest''' password file:
    202215It is possible to use `md5sum` utility to generate digest-password file:
    204  $ printf "${user}:trac:${password}" | md5sum - >>user.htdigest
    205 }}}
    206 and manually delete " -" from the end and add "${user}:trac:" to the start of line from 'to-file'.
     221echo ${user}:${realm}:$(printf "${user}:${realm}:${password}" | md5sum - | sed -e 's/\s\+-//') > ${path_to_file}

     255  --user=USER           the user to run as
     258Use the -d option so that tracd doesn't hang if you close the terminal window where tracd was started.

     287=== Authentication for tracd behind a proxy
     288It is convenient to provide central external authentication to your tracd instances, instead of using {{{--basic-auth}}}. There is some discussion about this in #9206.
     290Below is example configuration based on Apache 2.2, mod_proxy, mod_authnz_ldap.
     292First we bring tracd into Apache's location namespace.
     295<Location /project/proxified>
     296        Require ldap-group cn=somegroup, ou=Groups,
     297        Require ldap-user somespecificusertoo
     298        ProxyPass http://localhost:8101/project/proxified/
     299        # Turns out we don't really need complicated RewriteRules here at all
     300        RequestHeader set REMOTE_USER %{REMOTE_USER}s
     304Then we need a single file plugin to recognize HTTP_REMOTE_USER header as valid authentication source. HTTP headers like '''HTTP_FOO_BAR''' will get converted to '''Foo-Bar''' during processing. Name it something like '''''' and drop it into '''proxified/plugins''' directory:
     307from trac.core import *
     308from trac.config import BoolOption
     309from trac.web.api import IAuthenticator
     311class MyRemoteUserAuthenticator(Component):
     313    implements(IAuthenticator)
     315    obey_remote_user_header = BoolOption('trac', 'obey_remote_user_header', 'false',
     316               """Whether the 'Remote-User:' HTTP header is to be trusted for user logins
     317                (''since ??.??').""")
     319    def authenticate(self, req):
     320        if self.obey_remote_user_header and req.get_header('Remote-User'):
     321            return req.get_header('Remote-User')
     322        return None
     326Add this new parameter to your TracIni:
     331obey_remote_user_header = true
     335Run tracd:
     337tracd -p 8101 -r -s proxified --base-path=/project/proxified
     340Note that if you want to install this plugin for all projects, you have to put it in your [TracPlugins#Plugindiscovery global plugins_dir] and enable it in your global trac.ini.
     342Global config (e.g. `/srv/trac/conf/trac.ini`):
     345remote-user-auth.* = enabled
     347plugins_dir = /srv/trac/plugins
     349obey_remote_user_header = true
     352Environment config (e.g. `/srv/trac/envs/myenv`):
     355file = /srv/trac/conf/trac.ini
    263358=== Serving a different base path than / ===
    264359Tracd supports serving projects with different base urls than /<project>. The parameter name to change this is
