Bugzilla Setup

I am trying to set up Bugzilla on Fedora Core 2. I have passed the checks, but I am getting an "Internal Server Error" when I try to execute a .cgi file. I believe that the problem may lie in the httpd.conf. If you have succeeded in setting up Bugzilla, would you please be so kind as to post your httpd.conf file?

Thank you,

What a trip it was setting up Bugzilla!
I got it working on Fedora Core 2 Finally, Works Great.

Step 1.
My Bugzilla localconfig file was placed in my /var/www/html folder so it looked like this
Importand!! I never used Apachi before this, and I discovered out the hard way that the permissions have to be set for the html folder and bugzilla folder as well as files. I Simply did this by Mousing over the folder 'Right Clicking' and chosing 'Properties', then Chosing the 'Permissions' Tab and selecting EVERYTHING For Owner, Group and Others...others may flame me for this but I don't care I needed it working.

Step 2.
My Apachi config file is in
etc/httpd/conf/httpd...(I'm pretty sure at least)

Importand Make Sure that...

AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

Is not commented out

and you change the Proper pre set <Directory > bla bla bla too

<Directory "/var/www/html/bugzilla">
Options ExecCGI
AllowOverride Limit
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

now when I log into localhost/bugzilla It works

little info tid bit ./ will create a index.html that will redirect to index.cgi, it seems as if my Fedora doesn't like to run index.cgi unless it's called by index.html...what do I know, it was 2:45 am and My mind was FRIED!!

In the localconfig file in the var/www/html/bugzilla I set the index_html = 1;
and ran ./ It Created the index.html

Then I turned off, Rebooted, not Logged of, I mean Shut down Everything...Started her up and typed in localhost/bugzilla
She Ran and still runs Smooth...

Good Luck

I am facing problem in using bugzilla. I am using FC.
My document root is /var/www/html. I installed bugzilla and moved it to /var/www/html directory so its now : /var/www/html/bugzilla/.
Where to put that <directory> thing and what to do then ?
I tried to open the file and it gives me this error:

[b] bash: ./ : /usr/bonsaitools/bin/perl : bad interpreter : No such file or directory[/]

looking forward for ur help.
Thanks in advance .
