    6 Some of those operations can also be performed via the ''Admin'' web interface, an updated version of the [http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/WebAdmin WebAdmin] plugin now integrated within Trac (since version 0.11).
     8Some of the configurations can also be performed via the web administration module.

    8 == Usage ==
     10== Usage

    10 You can get a comprehensive list of the available options, commands and sub-commands by invoking `trac-admin` with the `help` command:.
    11 {{{
    12 trac-admin help
     12For nearly every `trac-admin` command, the first argument must be the path to the TracEnvironment:
     13{{{#!sh
     14$ trac-admin /path/to/projenv wiki list
    1315}}}
    1416
    15 Unless you're executing the `help`, `about` or `version` sub-commands, you'll need to specify the path to the TracEnvironment that you want to administer as the first argument, for example:
    16 {{{
    17 trac-admin /path/to/projenv wiki list
     17The only exception is for the `help` command, but even in this case, if you omit the environment you will only get a very succinct list of commands (`help` and `initenv`), the same list you would get when invoking `trac-admin` alone.
     18`trac-admin --version` will tell you about the Trac version (e.g. 1.2) corresponding to the program.
     19
     20To get a comprehensive list of the available command and sub-command, specify the path to an environment:
     21{{{#!sh
     22$ trac-admin /path/to/projenv help
    1823}}}
    1924
    20 == Interactive Mode ==
     25Some commands have more detailed help, which you can access by specifying the command's name as a subcommand for `help`:
     26{{{#!sh
     27$ trac-admin /path/to/projenv help <command>
     28}}}
    2129
    22 When passing the environment path as the only argument, `trac-admin` starts in interactive mode.
     30When an error occurs in a `trac-admin` command the return value will be `2` and error messages are printed to `stderr`.
     31
     32=== `trac-admin <targetdir> initenv` #initenv
     33
     34This subcommand is very important as is the one used to create a TracEnvironment in the specified `<targetdir>`. That directory must not exist prior to the call.

     37
     38It supports the `--inherit` option, which specifies a global configuration file for sharing settings between several environments. You can also inherit from a shared configuration afterwards, by setting the `[inherit] file` option in the `conf/trac.ini` file in your newly created environment. The advantage of specifying the inherited configuration file at environment creation time is that only the options ''not'' specified in the global configuration file will be written to the environment's `conf/trac.ini` file.
     39See TracIni#GlobalConfiguration.

     41== Interactive Mode
     42
     43`trac-admin` starts in interactive mode when the environment path is the only argument.
    2344Commands can then be executed on the selected environment using the prompt, which offers tab-completion
    24 (on non-Windows environments, and when the Python `readline` module is available) and automatic repetition of the last command issued.

    3152}}}

     61You will find below the detailed help for all the commands available by default in `trac-admin`. Note that this may not match the list given by `trac-admin <yourenv> help`, as the commands pertaining to components disabled in that environment won't be available and conversely some plugins activated in the environment may add their own commands.

    42 === Notes ===
    43 
    44 The `initenv` also supports an extra `--inherit` option, which can be used to specify the `[inherit] file` option at environment creation time so that only the options ''not'' already specified in the global configuration file will be written in the conf/trac.ini file of the newly created environment.
