I installed Bugzilla within my company. It works fine, but there is one trap that should be put out of the way: I entered a product and forgot to define components (the product does not have any). Then I tried to enter a bug and got: Content-type: text/html Software error: Can't use string ("") as an ARRAY ref while "strict refs" in use at /usr/local/httpd/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi line 240. For help, please send mail to the webmaster (root@localhost), giving this error message and the time and date of the error. I think this should be prevented.
I could swear this was fixed a long time ago... yep. Bug 40987. What version of Bugzilla are you running? I suspect it's something older than 2.11.
I am using version 2.10 (ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/webtools/bugzilla- LATEST.tar.gz). Time for a new release?
2.11 is available via cvs. See http://www.mozilla.org/cvs.html for instructions how to get it. Only the even numbered versions get tarballed. 2.12 will probably be tarballed in about a month or so, but depends on the last bugs getting nailed. You can search this bugzilla for open bugs with a status whiteboard value of "2.12" to see what's been decided needs to be finished before the 2.12 tarball is made. In the meantime, you can get a patch to fix this particular bug here: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/showattachment.cgi?attach_id=9717 if you don't feel like retrieving the CVS version. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 40987 ***
Verified dupe of fixed bug 40987: "Error message when no components are defined for a product."
