Subject Istalling Bugzilla on Tomcat
Date Thu, 25 May 2006 03:52:28 GMT
Greetings everyone.
I am relatively new and loving Java—Tomcat—Linux—all of it! But being new,
well… please bear with me if I ramble…
Due to the nature of our ecommerce software, we do not run Apache. 
I have only found one other post here regarding a Bugzilla on Tomcat
install, and the response was most disappointing—as well as a few years ago.
So, I present the question again…
Has someone tried to install Bugzilla on a straight Tomcat server?
Our box serves 5 separate IPs
  3 are ecommerce sites
  1 is an ftp area
  1 is for development and tools, such as Bugzilla.
I intend to use Bugzilla to help track issues on each of the ecommerce
websites as well as development bugs for new ecommerce solutions. 
Complete Environment:
  Linux 2.6.9
  MySQL 5.0.20
  Tomcat 5.5.16
  Bugzilla 2.22 (this is what I want!)
Bugzilla’s ./ ran well and I installed the PERL stuff it
needed. :-) 
Then I went to activate the cgi components of Tomcat.
I have read through the files and did uncomment the cgi servelet and mapping
in the web.xml for Tomcat, then realized that is a global setting – I only
want it to work for Bugzilla. So I went ahead and created a WEB-INF
directory, made a new web.xml. I also set up a context file in the
CATALINA/hosts as I did for my ecommerce sites.
But I am confused. Bugzilla is cgi… will the Tomcat even recognize it?
My Tomcat manager does see the Bugzilla directory as I placed it in the
MYDIR/ipstring/webapps directory, however it does not run (obviously, is not
Java!). When I try to “run it” I get this:
FAIL - Application at context path /bugzilla could not be started
Ok, I can deal with that as Bugzilla is not java.
I go to my webbrowser, and it does not come up. 
Am I barking up the wrong tree? Should I seek a more java-esq bug tracker?
Is there one? 
Helpful advice would be greatly appreciated.

To see things in the seed, that is genius.
