I see that you already solved this with the CPAN shell, but it would be better to install with Debian packages, that way you have only one place to check for upgrades, etc... In fact, I'll bet if you'd used the debian bugzilla package in the first place you wouldn't have run into this problem in the first place. apt-get install libemail-address-perl The ...

There are two distinct plans of attack to follow through with when diagnosing these types of errors: Firstly, there is the potential that it is an issue relating to the actual software in use: something is essentially sucking up connections and not releasing them back (either at all in terms of hanging thread, or in a reasonable amount of time in terms of a ...

Generally speaking, it's a good idea to use the distribution's native package management tools whenever you can. Assuming you're using a distro that is based off RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 or 6 (such as CentOS or Scientific linux among others), you should be able to do: yum install perl-DBD-MySQL (It's possible that there are reasons why you're not doing ...

You could try copying the files from /var/lib/mysql on the old hard disk to the same location on the new disk. I've had success doing that with my server when repartitioning and reinstalling it. After this, simply reinstall BugZilla (you can copy the old apache config from /etc/apache2 and the webserver files from /var/www instead of reinstalling everything) ...

Things you must take care of: Web server setup. Apache + mod_perl most likely. Exporting SQL dump and importing it to a new server. export for mysql: mysqldump --force --opt --user=$USER --password=$PASSWORD --databases $db > bugzilla.sql import for mysql: mysql -u $USER -p < bugzilla.sql Install missing PERL CPAN modules Run ./checksetup.pl in ...

For anyone trying to set up Bugzilla's email feature to use Gmail on a windows machine, I just spent two and a half days at work with dawood's solution http://www.dawood.in/bugzilla_alerts_using_gmail.html, to no avail. My machine is running 64 bit Windows 7, And I eventually did find a solution, skip to the third paragraph for that. Here's why Dawood's ...

Both Ubuntu and Fedora started out as Desktop-centric linux distros. Since then, Ubuntu has started releasing server distributions as well as its "LTS" (Long Term Support) server version. At this point, I don't believe Fedora has a server version, though I could be wrong. I'd recommend you stay away from Fedora for server purposes. The upgrade cycle is just ...

Try this one: apt-get install libtemplate-perl EDIT or do you want this one? apt-get install libtemplate-plugin-gd-perl

The important thing to remember is that changesets are (nearly) immutable, which means that it's too late to add a bug number when the developers are running hg push. The push command is only moving changesets around, not changing them. However, hg push is of course a good time to go and update Bugzilla since the developers are online when pushing to the ...

I got a reply from bugzilla's Max Kanat-Alexander on their mailing list: [run it] As root would be best. I'm not sure I really buy that for safety reasons as above - it's processing user-supplied data. Another idea I got off-list was to not run checksetup.pl as root so it couldn't chown/chgrp permissions away. I'll probably go with that or stick to ...

Apparently you have to run checksetup.pl after patching, who would have thought. Bob

No, unfortunately that's not yet implemented, though people have asked for it: Last Comment Bug 358987 - Show attachments with colored syntax highlighting in certain views An alternative might be to put a code highlighting tool into your browser. There are at least tow Firefox add-ons which do that: CodeViewer: ...

Check out this Codeplex project. Migration Sync Toolkit It supports Bugzilla

Instead of using a newer version of Bugzilla, you might consider (re-)installing Perl 5.8 to a different directory. Don't overwrite the OS's. In the past I have learned the hard way to keep the OS version and the App version of Perl in separate directories. Let the OS manage/fill it's Perl version requirements, and make sure you meet the requirements of the ...

Really, just use the distro you're used to. In general, Ubuntu and Fedora have more recent packages, but a faster release cycle, while Debian and Redhat (or Centos) have a slower rev cycle but consequently older software. Ubuntu uses the Debian system, while Fedora uses the Redhat system. Use whichever you're more comfortable with. It's all the same software ...

The handy Windows installer can also do upgrades--just install the 3.6.3 package over the version you have.

You need to set a valid email address for your bugzilla-daemon. Please see the data/params file, or visit edit_params.cgi to set the FROM address for bugzilla. See: http://fixunix.com/mozilla/414644-re-bugzilla-mail-problem.html

For the binding account details I've only had to use user@somedomain.local:password instead of puttingn the full DN of the user in.


2

The 'data 52e' = "invalid credentials", doesn't ALWAYS mean "bad password" I was getting this error using the correct password, and then found that due to the setup of my AD server I needed to specify the domain as well: johngh / mypassword didn't work MYDOMAIN\johngh / mypassword DID work! :-)

The error message specifies clearly what the problem is. In your localconfig file, there is a setting for the value $webservergroup (which is the Unix group your webserver runs with the permissions of). You have it set to "apache" (which, I believe, is the default) but there is no group in the system with that name. So you need to set it to the true name of ...

For bluehost u need to make that entry blank means in bugzilla/localconfig $webservergroup="apache" change it to $webservergroup=""

You will need a service account in order to bind (authenticate) to the domain controller, but you can test it in a dev environment with just your own user account. The "bind DN" is the LDAP distingusihed name (CN=value, OU=value, DC=value, etc) of the user that connects to the server in order to verify a user. You will probably need to specify the password ...

Why not just install Bugzilla 4 from a PPA and save yourself a whole lot of trouble?

If you look in /var/lib/dpkg/info/mysql-server-5.0.preinst you'll see: show_downgrade_warning=0 for i in `ls $DATADIR/debian-*.flag 2>/dev/null`; do found_version=`echo $i | sed 's/.*debian-\([0-9\.]\+\).flag/\1/'` if dpkg --compare-versions "$this_version" '<<' "$found_version"; then show_downgrade_warning=1 break; fi done So if ...

It would help to specify which version of Bugzilla you are using. Also, if it's Bugzilla from the Debian package, that might be a bit different - they change it rather a lot, and as a result the core Bugzilla team doesn't support it. The following refers to the upstream package. You need a dump of the database (mysqldump will do that; probably best done ...

There is params file for bugzilla configuration you need to provide this configuration option: 'mail_delivery_method' = > 'Sendmail'. Your server where you host your bugzilla installation needs to be configured to be able to forward/relay the emails to your smtp server.
