I wanted a Trac installation running on Linux that I could take with me to a new project, if necessary. So I entered the world of Virtual Severs, Linux Distributions, Apache HTTP configursations and Trac packages.
Read how to do it here:
The first thing I did was creating a new virtual machine in VMWare Workstation. I selected Linux Ubuntu as operating system. This will create the virtual machine for you but iwthout the operating system. The Linux software I downloaded from the Ubuntu site. I chose the newest version (Gutsy Gibbon) and selected the Server version, since I don't need a graphical user interface anyway. After downlaoding this one, I installed it at the virtual machine and conigured the installation of the server as a LAMP installation.
