I'm deploying a standalone Trac instance and getting stuck at this message when trying to log in:

Authentication information not available. Please refer to the installation documentation.

I have referred to the documentation already. I'm running the instance with this command:

tracd -p 8000 --auth='todos,trac-test/swords2.txt,trac' trac-test

I also generated trac-test/swords2.txt with a script from here, which looks like this:


What could be the problem and how can I fix it?

This question is rather useless for others, because i failed :D

According to documentation:

$ tracd -p port --auth="BASE_PROJECT_DIR,password_file_path,realm" project_path

I typed project name like this:

tracd -p 8000 --auth="todos,trac-test/swords.txt,trac" trac-test

instead of procect dir name like this:

tracd -p 8000 --auth="trac-test,trac-test/swords.txt,trac" trac-test
