Thread: Copying a Bugzilla Instance

  1. Copying a Bugzilla Instance

    I have a bugzilla instance set up, but i want to change some variables
    (in particular the LDAPuidattribute ). however the instance of
    bugzilla is used 24x7 and i cannot afford downtime on it..

    So i copied the folder, and copied the database etc.

    When i go to the bugzillatmp instance, if i am already logged in, then
    i can see all the snags, i can search. didnt try editing.

    However if i log out and try to log back in, it fails, saying username
    or password is invalid.

    I then changed the localconfig file to point at the original mysql db,
    that is still being used live, and the same issue happened.

    It is bugzilla 2.20, running on apache/mysql/redhat

    Would appreciate the help, as i know its obviously not soemthing to do
    with the DB.

    Ive just realised that when i copied the instance, i changed the
    attribute. I gather now that this attribute, LDAPuidattribute, is
    stored somewhere in the actuall folder that bugzilla is installed.
    what is the location of this value?

    maybe the copied installation is rejected access your LDAP server? It
    may be that Bugzilla cannot tell having a username/password
    combination rejected from being generally rejected from asking.

    It may be a cookie thing, too. (I don't really think it is, but better
    safe than sorry.) Check your copied installation's parameters, in
    particular urlbase, cookiedomain and cookiepath, they probably need to
    be modified from the original installation's values.

    you can edit data/params directly if you locked yourself out from
    editing it via Bugzilla's administrative pages with your web browser.

    Kind regards
