User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 2014050900 Steps to reproduce: 1. Installed Apache2 version 2.4.6-6.23.1-x86_64 on an openSuSE 13.1 linux system. 2. Follow the directions on the webpage at http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/4.4/en/html/configuration.html for integrating bugzilla with apache using cgi in section 184.108.40.206.1. Apache httpd™ with mod_cgi Actual results: Apache is moving towards using a new access control syntax which uses a "Require" syntax rather than the "Order Allow/Deny" syntax and Bugzilla needs to step up to support this change as well. As it stands, currently if neither the "Require" or the "Order Allow/Deny" access privileges is configured in the httpd.conf file, for the Bugzilla directory, Apache now defaults to denying all access from all users. This results in a 403 error from the server denying access to the Bugzilla web pages. Expected results: Of course I expected to be able to access the Bugzilla webpages after installation. I fixed this problem by adding in the Order/Allow directives to the Apache configuration for the Bugzilla directory. The aforementioned directions should reflect something like the following - (taken directly from my own httpd.conf.local file) <Directory /srv/www/bugzilla> AddHandler cgi-script .cgi Options +ExecCGI DirectoryIndex index.cgi index.html AllowOverride Limit FileInfo Indexes Options Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> Note the addition of the last two directives for the Order/Allow specifications. This is NOT shown on the website and cost me a lot of time tracking it down! Please add it so others won't wander into the same quagmire I did trying to figure out why Bugzilla failed to start up after I installed it following these directions! FYI - Some good bug reports on this issue can be found on the openSuSE/Novell bug tracker - https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=855049 https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=854263
The "Allow from all" command is not necessary everywhere, at least not in Mageia, so this must be distro-specific.
