I have had a working version of bugzilla on 10.04.

After I upgraded to 11.10 (_>11.04 -> 11.10) now BZ is not working.

While trying


I get a gdlib error.

Trying to solve it with:

./install_module --all

throws this error:

**UNRECOVERABLE ERROR** Could not find gdlib-config in the search path. Please install libgd 2.0.28 or higher. If you want to try to
compile anyway, please rerun this script with the option
  • Trying to use the --ignore_missing_gd as suggested gives the same error.


apt-get install libgd2-xpm
apt-get install libgd2-noxpm 

solve it.

Will appreciate assistance.


Solution: I couldn't make it work. I had to backup my DB, and reinstall V4.0.2.

Mainly folloewed a great step by step guide here

Downloaded the Version from Bugzilla site

Also, had to add the following in apache2.conf

<Directory /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/somedir>
    Options +ExecCGI


AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl

All is working now.
