Bugzilla: A Free and Open-Source Bug Tracker
Bugzilla is free and open source web-based bug-tracking software that is developed by an active group of volunteers in the Mozilla community, and used by thousands of projects and companies around the world.
Bugzilla requires Perl 5.14 (or newer) and tools to compile and install perl modules, including make(1) and a C compiler.
Debian/Ubuntu users: you probably need to run the following:
sudo apt-get install git perl cpanminus build-essential libexpat-dev libssl-dev
CentOS / Fedora users:
sudo yum group install -y "Development tools" sudo yum install -y perl-App-cpanminus
After that, you should run the following command from a git clone of this repository:
perl checksetup.pl --cpanm
At this point
localconfig can be edited to specify database connection parameters. If SQLite is acceptable,
no edits are required.
The checksetup.pl script should be run again to set up the database schema.
It will ask for some details, such as login name and password.
Finally, a webserver can be started by the following:
perl -Ilocal/lib/perl5 local/bin/plackup
Navigate to http://localhost:5000/ and login with the username and password provided earlier to checksetup. Remember to set the urlbase on http://localhost:5000/editparams.cgi. "http://localhost:5000" will probably suffice.
For a production setup, see the installation guide
