First, let’s begin by installing the necessary packages. Type the following:

yum install perl* mod_perl-devel -y

After the installation of the necessary packages is over, execute the following command in order to download the latest version of Bugzilla (adapt the URL to match the current version):


Unpack it to the desired directory:

tar zxvf bugzilla-4.2.2.tar.gz -C /var/www/html/

Enter the directory that contains the unpacked Bugzilla installation and rename the “bugzilla-${VERSION}” directory to something more convenient for web access:

cd /var/www/html/

mv -v bugzilla-4.4 bugzilla

Login to mysql using ‘root’ as user and your mysql ‘root’ password, and create a database for the Bugzilla installation:

mysql -uroot -p

mysql> create database bugzilla_DB;

Grant all privileges on the database you just created to a newly created user and identify it by his own password:

mysql> grant all on bugzilla_DB.* to some_user@localhost identified by 'random_password';

and exit mysql:

mysql> \q

Run the following command to find the necessary modules:


After the script is done, install the necessary and the optional modules by executing:

# /usr/bin/perl --all

Once the modules are installed, run the script again to generate the localconfig file:

Use your favorite text editor (in this case vim) and edit the $db_name, $db_user and $db_pass entries in the ‘localconfig’ file and fill them with the mysql database information we set earlier:

vim ./localconfig

Again, run the checksetup script to set initial configuration:


Next, these few lines need to be appended to the apache config file:

vim /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

<Directory /var/www/html/bugzilla>
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
Options +Indexes +ExecCGI
DirectoryIndex index.cgi
AllowOverride Limit FileInfo Indexes

Save the file and execute the following command to restart the webserver:

service httpd restart

That’s it! Open http://<IP_ADDRESS_OR_HOSTNAME>/bugzilla and start organizing your software development!

NOTE: In case of “500 Internal Server Error” on your first try to access Bugzilla, please check for the “Options” line in the .htaccess file and comment it out.

I can not find a resolution on bugzilla's doc about how to install bugzilla with https. By default, the bugzilla installation will be access with http://, not https://

If I want to access use https://, is there any package or software additional should be installed first? Or I can just configure on Bugzilla's parameter: SSL_Redirect and sslbase, and no need to change with bugzilla installation?
