    12 For nearly every `trac-admin` command, you'll need to specify the path to the TracEnvironment that you want to administer as the first argument, for example:

    1313{{{
    1414trac-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'll only get a very succinct list of commands (`help` and `initenv`), the same list you'd get when invoking `trac-admin` alone.

    1818Also, `trac-admin --version` will tell you about the Trac version (e.g. 0.12) corresponding to the program.

    20 If you want to get a comprehensive list of the available commands and sub-commands, you need to specify an existing environment:

    2424
    2525Some commands have a more detailed help, which you can access by specifying the command's name as a subcommand for `help`:
    26 
    2726{{{
    2827trac-admin /path/to/projenv help <command>
     
    3130=== `trac-admin <targetdir> initenv` === #initenv
    3231
    33 This subcommand is very important as it's the one used to create a TracEnvironment in the specified `<targetdir>`. That directory must not exist prior to the call.

    40 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 getting an error that reads ''''`Wrong number of arguments to initenv: 4`'''', then this is because you're using a `trac-admin` script from an '''older''' version of Trac.

    62 You'll 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.
