I am following the http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/win32install.html
to install bugzilla on Win XP Sp2 machine.
While installing Perl modules I am getting failure when installing:
C:\>ppm install DDB-mysql.ppd
"ppm install failed: PPD doesn't provide code to install for this platform" when trying to install from .zip (http://ppm.activestate.com/PPMPackages/zips/).
Also couldn't install DBD-mysql as recommended from http://landfill.bugzilla.org/ppm/.
Could anybody advice please!
Drop the ".ppd" from your command and it should work. I just tested it out on my machine and all was well.
So, your command should be:
C:\ppm install DBD-mysql

thank you for pointing me but I am still getting "ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides DDB-mysql" (pls ref to the attch)
..happened to be version inconsistency, easy to resolve.
