You probably don't want to modify the .htaccess of Bugzilla.
Also, your modifications won't work because your AllowOverride
statement won't permit them.

In general, delete your .htaccess and let ./checksetup.pl
create it for you.

It looks like you've modified that file a lot by hand. You
didn't happen to change the group that Apache runs as, did you?

> --------------------------------------------------
> DocumentRoot "/usr/local/bugzilla-3.0"

Why did you install it there instead of into /var/www/html?

SELinux will definitely have to be off in order to access it
in /usr/local. (I know you said you already turned it off, I just
wanted to let you know.)

> ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/usr/local/bugzilla-3.0"

Definitely don't do that. The Bugzilla directory should never
be ScriptAlias'ed.


You don't need to have this block twice.

Yes, you can never run Bugzilla scripts from outside their

It didn't stick, that's just what happens if you run perl and
don't give it a file to run. It's waiting for you to write some Perl.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla Services. And Everything Else, too.
