    55  ''Please note that using Trac via CGI is the slowest deployment method available. It is slower than [TracModPython mod_python], [TracFastCgi FastCGI] and even [trac:TracOnWindowsIisAjp IIS/AJP] on Windows.''

    88CGI script is the entrypoint that web-server calls when a web-request to an application is made. To generate the `trac.cgi` script run:
    9 {{{
     9{{{#!sh
    1010trac-admin /path/to/env deploy /path/to/www/trac
    1111}}}
    1212`trac.cgi` will be in the `cgi-bin` folder inside the given path. ''Make sure it is executable by your web server''. This command also copies `static resource` files to a `htdocs` directory of a given destination.

    1616In [http://httpd.apache.org/ Apache] there are two ways to run Trac as CGI:
    1717
    1818 1. Use a `ScriptAlias` directive that maps an URL to the `trac.cgi` script (recommended)
    19  2. Copy the `trac.cgi` file into the directory for CGI executables used by your web server (commonly named `cgi-bin`). You can also create a symbolic link, but in that case make sure that the `FollowSymLinks` option is enabled for the `cgi-bin` directory.

    2121To make Trac available at `http://yourhost.example.org/trac` add `ScriptAlias` directive to Apache configuration file, changing `trac.cgi` path to match your installation:
    22 {{{
     22{{{#!apache
    2323ScriptAlias /trac /path/to/www/trac/cgi-bin/trac.cgi
    2424}}}
     
    2727
    2828If you're using Trac with a single project you need to set its location using the `TRAC_ENV` environment variable:
    29 {{{
     29{{{#!apache
    3030<Location "/trac">
    3131  SetEnv TRAC_ENV "/path/to/projectenv"
     
    3434
    3535Or to use multiple projects you can specify their common parent directory using the `TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR` variable:
    36 {{{
     36{{{#!apache
    3737<Location "/trac">
    3838  SetEnv TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR "/path/to/project/parent/dir"
     
    4242 ''Note that the `SetEnv` directive requires enabled `mod_env` module. It is also possible to set TRAC_ENV in trac.cgi. Just add the following code between "try:" and "from trac.web ...":''
    4343
    44 {{{
     44{{{#!python
    4545    import os
    4646    os.environ['TRAC_ENV'] = "/path/to/projectenv"
     
    4949 '' Or for TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR: ''

    51 {{{

    5858On some systems, you ''may'' need to edit the shebang line in the `trac.cgi` file to point to your real Python installation path. On a Windows system you may need to configure Windows to know how to execute a .cgi file (Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> File Types -> CGI).
