Trac on a shared host

I’ve moved my Subversion repositry over to Dreamhost. As that is a shared host I needed to setup Trac via htaccess.

I wrote about this in the Dreamhost Wiki though I still have a problem.

Now I need to get rid of the stupid index.cgi crufting my URL!

http://trac2.natalian.org/index.cgi/browser/projects/ on Dreamhost

Should be same URI structure as my previous host:

http://trac.natalian.org/browser/projects/

I guess I need to do this with RewriteRules from htaccess, but I have never had much luck with them. They’re voodoo. Black magic. I need help.

There should be some resource or group dedicated to solving RewriteRule problems like mine. To de-cruft URLs and maintain a pleasant URL structure.
