Hi. Thanks for taking the time to write an excellent guide on Bugzilla configuration. Amazingly, there are quite a few gotchas with this software, so having this guide (and the one on the Bugzilla site) was really, really useful. Thanks. :)

I just wanted to add one problem which I got resolved, which I don't see covered here or on the site. Could be it's my setup. (WinServer 2003, Bugzilla 3.0.4 & Active Perl 5.10.0). After following all the instructions, I got "" to run through successfully, and I could browse in the server Perl cgi pages I had created, but I simply could not get the Bugzilla .cgi files to work. (And yes, I had followed the IIS setup instructions on the ActiveState web site. I also got Apache to serve Bugzilla fine on the same server (different port), but it was just not working for IIS.

Turns out, I had to manually set the Perl shebang line to point to the Windows installation path of Perl! I find this really odd, but I figured your readers may benefit from the comment. That is, in each of the Bugzilla supplied CGI files, I had to manually set the path to Perl. (As I mentioned before, the Perl path was set correctly in the Windows Path variable, was set in IIS, the site permissions were correctly set, and I could get simply "Hello World" script pages I had created in Perl to work fine, without needing to set the shebang manually). Hope this helps. Cheers!

Many thanks. The problem that I had was with the registry setting. I discovered that it was this causing me the problems when I altered the first line of index.cgi to point to the correct location and the site worked. However I read some other document that said you don't need to if the registry is set correctly and I stumbled across your documents that had the reg files to ease setting of this. I had setup my registry to point to the perl binary but I had done it incorrectly. I had interpreted the mozilla docs to create a key of
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.cgi\Shell\ExecCGI with a String Value named Command with a value of c:\perl\bin\perl -t

The original documents I guess are a bit vague in this respect.
