Bugzilla

From ArchWiki

Bugzilla is server software designed to help you manage software development.

Installation

Install the bugzilla package.

Although many Perl modules are specified as dependencies, some required modules still need to be installed manually[broken link: invalid section].

Configuration

Module dependencies

Perform a module check first:

# cd /srv/http/bugzilla
# ./checksetup.pl --check-modules

Check the output for which modules are required and which are optional. The shell commands to install missing modules will also be shown.

Install all required and optional modules using:

# perl install-module.pl --all

Final module check

What follows is some more configuration to let BugZilla connect to MySQL and create initial tables in it.

Run checksetup.pl again, this time without the –check-modules switch:

# ./checksetup.pl

A file called localconfig is generated if everything is okay. Then, modify some of the file's parameters:

$webservergroup = 'http';
$db_driver = 'DATABASE_TO_USE_HERE';
$db_name = 'DATABASE_NAME_HERE';
$db_user = 'DATABASE_USER_HERE';
$db_pass = 'YOUR_PASSWORD_HERE';

Apache

Finally, configure Apache HTTP Server to run BugZilla using mod_cgi (can also be configured using mod_perl; refer to this for details).

First uncomment the following line in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:

LoadModule cgi_module modules/mod_cgi.so

Then add the following lines to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:

<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.
