Getting TRAC to run on IIS7

Im trying to get Trac upp and work on my IIS / w2008 server using this FAQ: TracOnWindowsIisAjp

Everything upp up to "3. Installing Tomcat AJP Connector for IIS" works fine. Then I define my directories as: C: \ wwwroot \ \ AJP \, in the bin directory I put a dll file and 3 config files with this content: # Config file for ISAPI redirector

# The path to the ISAPI Redirector Extension, relative to the website
# This must be in a virtual directory with execute privileges

# Full path to the log file for the ISAPI Redirector

# Log level (debug, info, warn, error or trace)

# Full path to the file

# Full path to the file

# Define 1 real worker
# Set properties for trac (ajp13)



Then I run into problems:

  • Define a virtual directory named AJP-Connector pointing to your bin subdirectory, with permissions to execute executable files (not just scripts).

I have defined a virtual directory named AJP by pointing it to the bin subdirectory, but I cannot find a way to give it execute permissions

And the rest of the instructions are clearly not quite applicable to IIS7

  • Allow DLL Execution as Web Service Extension
  • In IIS Manager, open Web Services Extensions.
  • Define a new web service extension called AJP-Connector (or whatever).
  • Add C: \ AJP-Connector \ bin \ isapi_redirect-1.2.26.dll to the desired files (replace "C: \ AJP-Connector" with your actual directory).
  • Set the extension status to Valid.

I tried adding the dll as an ISAPI extension, the result was a web.config file in the bin directory with the following content:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <handlers accessPolicy="Read, Execute, Script">
            <remove name="ISAPI-dll" />
            <add name="AJP" path="*.ajp" verb="*" modules="IsapiModule" scriptProcessor="C:\wwwroot\\AJP\bin\isapi_redirect-1.2.26.dll" resourceType="Unspecified" requireAccess="Execute" />


Any help is appreciated.

This article provides a detailed description of the IIS7 fastCGI [ ] article [1]



Have a look at the following link:

with this i run it.



Just came across this question from an unrelated google search. Strange how it goes ... IIS7 supports FastCGI natively, I would highly recommend using this over AJP. If you're still watching this question, please leave a comment and I'll follow up on the installation details.



@Jeff Mc - I am really looking at installing trac on IIS7 and stumbled upon this thread just like you. I'd love to know the details of using FastCGI, as well as any other trac errors on IIS7.
