Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 209413
'data' directory missing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:45 EST
Description of problem:
Running checksetup.pl does not create the 'data' directory for bugzilla.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Configure /etc/bugzilla/localconfig and run checksetup.pl. Although
checksetup.pl completes successfully, it does not create a 'data' directory. The
comment in the script claims "This means that TT creates the directory for
us..." but that doesn't seem to work over here, so that the test for (-d
$datadir && -e "$datadir/nomail") fails, and that part of script will not be
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure bugzilla
2. Run checksetup.pl
3. Check for '/usr/share/bugzilla/data'
No '/usr/share/bugzilla/data' directory.
A populated '/usr/share/bugzilla/data' directory with proper .htaccess files.
Bugzilla's data directory is in /var/lib/bugzilla. This is done so that /usr
can be read-only and not cause problems. I just verified that the
/var/lib/bugzilla/data directory is created and populated when checksetup.pl is run.
