OS : Debian Sarge 3.0

Perhaps you should try reading the official bugzilla documentation. –  EEAA Feb 14 '12 at 5:15
    
Best of luck. I'm starting work on a similar project right down to the same version of Bugzilla, but it's back-burner and not going to be done soon enough to help you much. –  Magellan Feb 14 '12 at 5:22
    
I didn't understand why the question was down with 2 votes, Did I asked anything wrong which I should ask at server fault? –  Caterpillar Feb 14 '12 at 13:44

What the above commenters have not noticed is that you appear to be using Debian Bugzilla, which the Bugzilla team doesn't support because Debian pulls it in all directions to make it fit their system, and in the past that broke some things. So the official documentation probably won't help you sufficiently.

Given that, I would suggest you do the following:

  • Dump the database
  • Restore it to a new server
  • Install Bugzilla 4.0 (latest stable) according to the instructions on the Bugzilla site
  • Run checksetup.pl and follow any instructions

and see what happens. You may end up with joy :-)
