    12 For nearly every `trac-admin` command, you will need to specify the path to the TracEnvironment that you want to administer as the first argument:
    13 {{{
    14 trac-admin /path/to/projenv wiki list
     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
    1515}}}
    1616
    17 The 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 Also, `trac-admin --version` will tell you about the Trac version (e.g. 0.12) corresponding to the program.

    20 To get a comprehensive list of the available commands and sub-commands, specify an existing environment:
    21 {{{
    22 trac-admin /path/to/projenv help

     21{{{#!sh
     22$ trac-admin /path/to/projenv help
    2323}}}
    2424
    25 Some commands have a more detailed help, which you can access by specifying the command's name as a subcommand for `help`:
    26 {{{
    27 trac-admin /path/to/projenv help <command>

    30 === `trac-admin <targetdir> initenv` === #initenv
     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
    3133
    3234This 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.

    36 It supports an extra `--inherit` option, which can be used to specify a global configuration file which can be used to share 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, but the advantage of specifying the inherited configuration file at environment creation time is that only the options ''not'' already specified in the global configuration file will be written in the created environment's `conf/trac.ini` file.

    39 Note that in version 0.11 of Trac, `initenv` lost an extra last argument `<templatepath>`, which was used in previous versions to point to the `templates` folder. If you are using the one-liner `trac-admin /path/to/trac/ initenv <projectname> <db> <repostype> <repospath>` in the above and get an error that reads `Wrong number of arguments to initenv: 4`, then this is because you are using a `trac-admin` script from an '''older''' version of Trac.

    4141== Interactive Mode

    43 When passing the environment path as the only argument, `trac-admin` starts in interactive mode.

    4747Once you are in interactive mode, you can also get help on specific commands or subsets of commands:
    4848
    4949For example, to get an explanation of the `resync` command, run:
    50 {{{
     50{{{#!sh
    5151$ help resync
    5252}}}
    5353
    5454To get help on all the Wiki-related commands, run:
    55 {{{
     55{{{#!sh
    5656$ help wiki
    5757}}}

    61 You 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 can add their own commands.
