Is this possible to setup Trac to authenticate system users? For example users that are in trac group will have access to Trac.

Is this possible to user /etc/passwd instead of Apache's .htpasswd?

mod_auth_external can be configured to use various sources including /etc/shadow.

Nginx has HttpAuthPamModule.

It would be great but I'm not running apache :/ – seler Sep 21 '11 at 11:42
What exactly are you running then? Trac itself does not do authentication. – grawity Sep 21 '11 at 11:42
I'm using nginx – seler Sep 21 '11 at 11:43
