User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux) (KHTML, like Gecko) Build Identifier: there are scenarios where users would like to use bugzilla, but cannot do so because they don't have root access, don't if it's possible at all - but if would be really nice if there was a way to put all the required modules into a subfolder of bugzilla, and use these in that location - instead of having to install all modules in system-wide locations. Also, support to do most of the installation using a browser-based setup script would really be useful - after all it could be made to become interactive and really display/explain all the necessary steps, that are already summarized in all the docs. There are opensource projects which attempt to write perl based installers for perl-software,maybe you wanna check some of these out. And yet another note: I didn't seem to be able to set up bugZilla to be used by different webpages, hosted on the same server - e.g. I don't want to only have support for multiple projects within bugZilla, but rather also want the bugZilla software itself to be available -after one install - for any virtual host that I'm running - maybe it's just a lack of docs about that, though. But something like that would definitely be GREAT - maybe even the folks at sourceforge.net would finally stop to develop their own childish bugtracker and directly use bugZilla their for all projects, too. Anyway, thanks guys - you're really doing a great job ! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
You can already do this. Read the docs ;) http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/2.18/html/nonroot.html

You bring up a couple different issues here. In the future, it would be best if you could file one bug report per problem, and use the mozilla-webtools mailing list (or the netscape.public.mozilla.webtools newsgroup, they are the same) for support-related issues/questions. > there are scenarios where users would like to use bugzilla This is currently possible, and documented in the docs. See http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/2.18/html/nonroot.html for details. If you have trouble, you can try the mailing list for support. > > Also, support to do most of the installation using a browser-based setup > script would really be useful There's several bugs on this and I have about 10% of one of these written. As always, patches are welcome. See bug 44659 in particular. > And yet another note: I didn't seem to be able to set up bugZilla to be used > by different webpages, hosted on the same server You can setup one installation for each virtual host you want to use. Just drop a different copy of Bugzilla into a directory for each install you want and set each to use a different database. If you wanted to create a lot of installs, you could write a simple script to automate this. Another option would be to write a patch that adds a param to have Bugzilla use a different database depending on the virtual host it is being called from. You could file a bug on this if you would like. > Anyway, thanks guys - you're really doing a great job ! Thank you for using Bugzilla.
