In a multi-homing environment, you may run your Trac product installation side-by-side with other web services hosted by IIS. You can choose to serve your Trac pages from a different port number on the server's IP address or from the standard port 80 on an additional server IP address. By default, IIS performs a process called Socket Pooling which allows IIS to use port 80 and port 443 of all IP addresses assigned to your server. Even though you may have set up an additional IP address specifically for Trac product, IIS will still listen to ports 80 and 443 of that IP address unless specifically instructed otherwise.

Installation   Server  


Imports    
Server Requirements

The server requirements to run your Trac application are very minimal. It is not required to have server-class hardware or operating system, and a very capable server can be found for under $1000. The Trac server is developed as a completely self-contained unit and can be installed and set up quickly even if your department does not have the support of the IT Department.
Operating System
The Trac server can be installed on any Windows Operating System, 2008 and newer. The OS can be a home, professional, or server version. It also operates on any Service Pack or Release Candidate for the Windows Operating Systems.
  • Windows Server 2008 & 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows 2012 & 2012 R2
Processor (CPU)
The Trac server engine is designed to use as much of the processor resources as available. You may see the processor peak in the 80 and 90 percentile when the Trac application is being utilized. The Trac server engine currently does not offer multi-core support. While your server may have a multi-core processor, the Trac server will only utilize one core of the CPU. The Trac Server may be installed on a server with an Intel or AMD CPU.
  • Processor Speed
    • minimum 2.8 GHz
    • recommended 3.2 GHz or higher

    • AMD Athlon XP and newer
Server Memory
The Trac server engine utilizes server memory to quickly handle many tasks and operations.
  • Memory
    • minimum 2 GB RAM
    • recommended 4 GB RAM
Hard Disk Space
The Trac server installation files will only be about 100 MB. The database will grow over the years and could grow to more than 2 GB. You need to plan hard disk space for server log files and backups of the database file as well.
  • Hard Disk Space
    • minimum 4 GB
    • recommended 10+ GB
Network Settings
The Trac application contains a web server and makes the application accessible via HTTP access across your network. You can limit your Trac system to on-campus access or open it to the Internet.
  • Network Requirements
    • TCP/IP Protocol configured
    • Static Server IP Address
