Description

6 years ago
xmlrpc.cgi consistently showed 500 errors on my Ubuntu 10.04.3 server. I traced it to the following error:

Can't locate Test/Taint.pm in @INC (@INC contains: . lib /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.1 /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.10 /usr/share/perl/5.10 /usr/local/lib/site_perl) at Bugzilla/WebService/Util.pm line 28.
Compilation failed in require at Bugzilla/WebService/Server/XMLRPC.pm line 151.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Bugzilla/WebService/Server/XMLRPC.pm line 151.
Compilation failed in require at /home/tools/bugzilla/bugzilla-4.0/xmlrpc.cgi line 30.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /home/tools/bugzilla/bugzilla-4.0/xmlrpc.cgi line 30.

The error was fixed when installed libtest-taint-perl.

I had this problem on Bugzilla 3.6.5 and 4.0.1. I would have expected checksetup.pl to report the missing module.

Args, you are right. I completely missed that:

*                     Test-Taint * JSON-RPC Interface, XML-RPC Interface *
