In the Installation section (3.2.15), it says: ===== Assuming your web server runs as user "apache", and Bugzilla is installed in "/usr/local/bugzilla", here's one way to run checksetup.pl as the web server user. As root, for the second run of checksetup.pl, do this: bash# chown -R apache:apache /usr/local/bugzilla bash# su - apache bash# cd /usr/local/bugzilla bash# ./checksetup.pl ===== However, this doesn't work for me. After a few minutes I found that my "apache" user had "/bin/false" as the login shell (as a security feature), so the "su - apache" failed and it went downhill from there. The fix was very simple, just change the login shell to bash, do the commands, then change the login shell back. This seems to be the default for RedHat, so I expect it to bite others too. I feel this needs to be mentioned in the docs near these commands.
Fixed in 2.16 branch CVS. Gerv
