I'm looking into installing Bugzilla either on a Windows or Linux box. Bugzilla requires a bunch of packages (apache, sql, mail sending?). Does anyone know of a pre-packaged installer which includes most common options or a linux virtual machine image?


Unofficial Windows installers have just been released for Bugzilla.


Grab an image from Turnkey, they have a Bugzilla image that you can put on an unused computer or run in a VM. They have a lot of pre-built images available.


Install Ubuntu Desktop/Server 10.10

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bugzilla3

Administer the MySQL database?:

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

...all too easy my friend.


Another option is to go with a hosted solution like devZing.com. We've got hosted Bugzilla & Subversion as a package.
