When I finally got bugzilla passing checksetup, I go to http://localhost/bugzilla and get plain text. Obviously not executing CGI.
Add the following to httpd.conf:
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
Then I get a 500
Internal Server Error
with the following in the Apache log file:
[error] [client 127.0.0.1] (OS 3)The system cannot find the path specified. : couldn’t spawn child process: C:/Apache/httpd/2.2/htdocs/bugzilla/index.cgi
A quick search turns up this:
You can either set perl to be the .cgi handler in the registry and set the directive
Alternately, install perl where it is expected by index.cgi
: #!/usr/bin/perl -wT
or edit the script to expect perl in the proper location
or just #!perl
I think last time (on my laptop) I copied C:/Perl/bin/perl.exe to C:/usr/bin/perl.exe
5 thoughts on “More Bugzilla on Windows”
copying perl.exe to c:/usr/bin/perl.exe works, but it’s inelegant.
I’m trying to find a way to get mod_perl to work, but I run into an error with Apache::SizeLimit that aparently only works on MPM pre-fork?
So apparently, mod_perl only works with bugzilla on Linux, because there the Windows binary is threaded, I’m guessing
Syntax error on line 271 of C:/Aaron/Apache/httpd/2.2/conf/httpd.conf:
Apache2::SizeLimit at the moment works only with non-threaded MPMs at C:/Aaron/Perl/site/lib/Apache2

Here is the link on bugzilla.org for how to set up mod_perl:
and how to set up bugzilla on windows:
I’ve modified mod_perl to work with a threaded server. In fact I’ve got bugzilla running smoking fast on a Vista box!
That sounds cool. I’ve only worried about Bugzilla on Windows for development or small deployment, so it hasn’t been a serious issue for me, but it’d be interesting to see.
Patrick, I am stuck at that exact place, can you let us know how you modified mod_perl?
