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.
