Every time I add a user to bugzilla, it gets created with NULL in its cryptpassword column, so I have to fill in its encrypted password by hand using MySQL This turns out eventually to be a mysql version problem: 3.21.17a-beta-log doesn't have an encrypt() function. Could you add a note warning of this to the (otherwise very useful) README file? mysql> select encrypt('foo'); +----------------+ | encrypt('foo') | +----------------+ | NULL | +----------------+ As it works in other respects (and I've set up all my categories nicely) and a bunch of other things are using this mysql installation already, I'm just going to hack globals.pl to call crypt() from Perl

I think this is fixed already. Every time I run checksetup.pl, I get a "reminder" that bugzilla requires mySQL 3.22.x, and when I did the original install as 2.8, I could swear it said that in the readme, too, but I don't remember for sure (and it's not somewhere I can look easily right now). If you missed it in the readme, you'd get the notice when you ran checksetup.pl.
the minimum mysql requirements are both in checksetup.pl and in the readme.
