Bugzilla 2.18


(Whiteboard: subsumed by 233592)

Right now, our installation docs suggest changing a few global-level options for
the webserver.  However, all of the options we need CAN be applied locally, only
to the Bugzilla installation.  To avoid conflicts with other web apps, we should
suggest applying all of these options inside the <Directory> block for the
bugzilla directory.

In fact, on newer apaches with a conf.d directory, the entire thing can be put
in a bugzilla.conf file.  For example, on one of my boxes here, I have a
bugzilla.conf file that contains this:

<Directory /var/www/bugzilla>
  AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
  Options +Indexes +ExecCGI
  DirectoryIndex index.cgi
  AllowOverride Limit

We could even include a bugzilla.conf file in the Bugzilla tarball that contains
the above and suggest they fix their pathname to match and just copy it into
place :)

I'm re-writing most of this section as part of bug 233592. In doing so, I will 
take into account the suggestions on this bug. When that bug lands, this one 
can be closed.
