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
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)
Add following lines to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
<Directory /srv/http/bugzilla> AddHandler cgi-script .cgi Options +Indexes +ExecCGI DirectoryIndex index.cgi AllowOverride Limit </Directory>
Now restart apache and required modules
Access http://server-domain-or-ip/bugzilla/ using your web browser.
