Bugzilla has a built-in web interface...

Hi -

1. All you need to do to interact with Bugzilla is point your web browser to it.

2. Before you install Bugzilla, your server should also have the following installed:

a) A web server (e.g. Apache)
b) MySQL database server
c) Perl 5.x

3. When you install Bugzilla, you'll probably just copy it into your web root folder
Consult your Web server's documentation for other alternatives, for example, using a symbolic link or setting up a VirtualHost.

4. You'll *always* want to run "checksetup.pl".

5. Please review the installation guide posted on the Bugzilla site:
www.bugzilla.org

'Hope that helps .. PSM

thank u very much for ur reply.
I have already installed perl,mysql, apache web server and bugzilla2.16.7.
I put that folder in default document root which is /var/www/html so now the path is
/var/www/html/bugzilla-2.16.7. I changed the permission to 777 of bugzilla folder and all of its files inside it.
Then when I type the commad in console window
[root@localhost bugzilla-2.16.7] ./checksetup.pl
it give this messeage :
bash : ./checksetup.pl : /usr/bonsaitools/bin/perl : bad interpreter : no such file or directory
I also checked the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file and uncommented the line
Addhandler cgi-script .cgi Did I miss something in this file?
What to do now ?

Hope I made myself clear.
Thanks in advance.

Excellent: it sounds like you're on the right track!

You must configure Bugzilla to point to your "real" Perl. For example:

1. which perl =>
/usr/bin/perl
<= PERL IS LOCATED IN "/usr/bin" ON THIS SYSTEM

2. su - root
ln -s /usr/bin/perl /usr/bonsaitools/bin/perl
<= CREATE SYMBOLIC LINK: "LN -S 'REAL-PATH' -SYM-LINK'"

3. Re-run checksetup.pl
<= THIS SHOULD NOW RUN CORRECTLY

You can find more details here:

http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/2.16/html/stepbystep.html

The link u gave there are some lines that I haven't understood.
I uncommented the line AddHandler cgi-script .cgi but in there it also says

With Apache you'll also want to make sure that within the httpd.conf file the line:
Options ExecCGI
AllowOverride Limit
is in the stanza that covers the directories into which you intend to put the bugzilla .html and .cgi files.


what thus these two line means ?? Do I haave to add them in httpd.conf file ?

step 1 is OK , it shows /usr/bin/perl
in step 2 when I gave the command ln -s /usr/bin/perl /usr/bonsaitools/bin/perl then it gives me
this message
ln : creating symbolic link '/usr/bonsaitools/bin/perl' to '/usr/bin/perl' : No such file or directory

Thanks again for helping me.

Hello friends,
With all of your help I finally installed bugzilla in my computer.
I actually gone through a really rough time installing bugzilla in my computer but when I again went to install it in my friend's computer it gave me this error which I could not overcome. So if you have any idea what can solve this problem just helo me.

Checking perl modules ...
Checking for AppConfig (v1.52) ok: found v1.56
Checking for CGI::Carp (any) ok: found v1.24
Checking for Data:umper (any) ok: found v2.12
Checking for Date::Parse (any) ok: found v2.27
Checking for DBI (v1.13) ok: found v1.32
Checking for DBD::mysql (v1.2209) ok: found v2.1021
Checking for File::Spec (v0.82) ok: found v0.83
Checking for File::Temp (any) ok: found v0.13
Checking for Template (v2.07) ok: found v2.14
Checking for Text::Wrap (v2001.0131) ok: found v2001.0929
Checking for CGI::Carp (any) ok: found v1.24

The following Perl modules are optional:
Checking for GD (v1.19) not found
Checking for Chart::Base (v0.99) not found
Checking for XML::Parser (any) ok: found v2.31

If you you want to see graphical bug dependency charts, you may install
the optional libgd and the Perl modules GD-1.19 and Chart::Base-0.99b, e.g. by
running (as root)

perl -MCPAN -e'install "LDS/GD-1.19.tar.gz"'
perl -MCPAN -e'install "N/NI/NINJAZ/Chart-0.99b.tar.gz"'

Checking user setup ...
Precompiling templates ...
DBI connect(';localhost;3306','bugs',...) failed: Access denied for user: 'bugs@localhost' (Using password: YES) at checksetup.pl line 1189
[Tue Dec 7 16:28:46 2004] checksetup.pl: DBI connect(';localhost;3306','bugs',...) failed: Access denied for user: 'bugs@localhost' (Using password: YES) at checksetup.pl line 1189
Uncaught exception from user code:
Can't connect to the mysql database. Is the database installed and
up and running? Do you have the correct username and password selected in
localconfig?

thanks in advance.
