Install Bugzilla The Easy Way

Posted on 2007-08-18

With more and more complex code coming along at work, one thing I wanted to get set up early was a bug-tracking software. Initially I tried to install Bugzilla on a few boxes, but always ran into issues trying to get it up and running. If it wasn't perl modules not being found in CPAN for some odd reason, it was something else.

I ran across a virtual machine prebuilt with Bugzilla installed called Virtual Bugzilla Server, from ALM Works.  Just download, extract, and run in VMWare Player or Workstation. If you are running ESX server 3.0 at work, the Virtual Bugzilla Server can be run through VMWare Converter and runs fine on ESX 3.0
