This error occured after creating new account on bugzilla system. After successfully logging into the system using the newly created account and password and then I clicked the query button the error below will occur. I have already installed this bugzilla 5 times already and yet the same happens. Software error:Can't use string ("") as an ARRAY ref while "strict refs" in use at /var/www/html/bugv212/query.cgi line 295.
The most common cause for this is having a product that doesn't have any components. This has been fixed in the current CVS to not cause this non-obvious error (and will thus be included in the 2.14 release) but it is still an issue in 2.12. This should go away if you make sure that every product has at least one component. Please let me know if this works for you.
Since this *is* fixed in CVS, I'm closing this to avoid confusing the developers. If you would like to run what is in CVS, cd into your bugzilla directory and do this: 1) type 'cvs login' 2) when prompted for a password, enter 'anonymous' 3) type 'cvs -z3 update -dP' this should update your code to the current code in CVS.
