Bugzilla is server software designed to help you manage software development.
It requires a bunch ofmodules to be installed too, but some required modules still need to be installed manually
Make a module check first:
# cd /srv/http/bugzilla # ./checksetup.pl --check-modules
Check the screen output, you will learn which module is required and which is optional, for missing modules, it will also show you the shell command to install them.
Install all required and optional modules using:
# perl install-module.pl -all
Because of a missing dependency, the following perl module needs to be installed for user creation and bug filing to work properly:
# perl install-module.pl DateTime:TimeZone
Absence of Email-Abstract will generate an error on the final module check and configuration for BugZilla 5.0rc2 (in the next step). To fix this, issue the command:
# perl install-module.pl Email::Abstract
There is an open bug for the above issue
Final Module Check
Next, some more configuration to let bugzilla know how to connect mysql and create initial tables in it.
Run checksetup.pl again, this time without the –check-modules switch:
A file called "localconfig" is generated if everything is ok. Then edit it, modify some parameters there:
$webservergroup = 'http'; $db_driver = 'DATABASE_TO_USE_HERE'; $db_name = 'DATABASE_NAME_HERE'; $db_user = 'DATABASE_USER_HERE'; $db_pass = 'YOUR_PASSWORD_HERE';
Finally, configure apache to run bugzilla using mod_cgi (also can be configured using mod_perl, refer this for details)
First uncomment the following line in
LoadModule cgi_module modules/mod_cgi.so
Then add the following lines to
<Directory /srv/http/bugzilla> AddHandler cgi-script .cgi Options +ExecCGI DirectoryIndex index.cgi AllowOverride All </Directory>
Now restart apache and required modules.
Access http://server-domain-or-ip/bugzilla/ using your web browser.
