Could anybody guide me how to install bugzilla in windows. I followed all the steps mentioned in some websites but could not succeed. Kindly help me as I am providing software testing training, I can guide the trainees with real tool.
thanks in advance.
You are probably in perl hell. There's no easy way.
- Install perl through cygwin and proceed with bash (which you are probably not comfortable with) but cpan should work at this point
- Install perl through activestate and suffer through CPAN hell or mapping components to PPM.
The easiest solution is do not use Windows! Installing bugzilla on Linux (for competent person) takes 10 minutes. It's basically install mysql, (yum/apt), run some sql commands, install apache2 (yum/apt), untar bugzilla, reconfigure the apache, HUP the server and maybe you will need to open port 80.
Just install the base CentOS5/6's minimal install and google instructions for it. It'll be a lot easier.
