This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Is /var/tracprojects/YourProject the directory name you passed to trac-admin?

According to the instructions on the page you posted, you are meant to create that directory before calling trac-admin (the two commands before hand create the directory and set its permissions). The error you received would indicate that you haven't done so.
