Ubuntu Bugzilla Install

I had some trouble installing Bugzilla on my Ubuntu web server, with my mysql database on another server. I wanted to write these things down to help another person diagnose there install. I finally got my configuration to work. Heres what I found to figure it out.

Keep In Mind.
  • sudo perl /usr/share/bugzilla/lib/checksetup.pl - run this to test configuration
  • /etc/bugzilla/localconfig - stores your mysql parameters
  • /etc/bugzilla/params
It has bugzilla url path in here 'urlbase' => './cgi-bin/bugzilla/' - make this absolute path? 'urlbase' => '/cgi-bin/bugzilla/' on my vhosts I did
  • /etc/dbconfig-common/bugzilla.conf - this is the file synaptic apt builds its db vars from.

Apache Web Server
Bugzilla accesses two directories on the web server. cgi-bin and /usr/share/bugzilla/web. Keep this in mind for your apache configuration.

This is how I did my apache configuration. I set this up in my vhosts (virtual hosts) configuration file. So all virtual hosts has access to bugzilla via /bugzilla.

# CGI-BIN #could change -> +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
<directory>
AllowOverride None
Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +FollowSymLinks
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</directory>

# Bugzilla access - this allows it to get to its web file includes
Alias /bugzilla /usr/share/bugzilla/web
<directory>
AllowOverride Limit
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</directory>
