After I install Bugzilla, I get error 403 Forbidden.

Applies to: Grid System

The bugzilla installation scripts leave some files and directories unreadable by the webserver. To fix this, get a shell prompt, change into the top level directory where you have installed Bugzilla, and type the following shell commands:

find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
find . -name \*.cgi -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find . -name \*.pl -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find . -name \*.sh -exec chmod 755 {} \;

Then you should edit the .htaccess file in the same top level directory to make index.cgi a directory index as described in in this other FAQ

You must make the following changes to your localconfig file.

$webservergroup = "apache"

You want this to be the admin username for your account. You will want to also make sure the database is setup to use the db.modwest.com host and your db username and password.

Every time the checksetup.pl file is run, it will regenerate some files. This includes the .htaccess file. So it is very important to run the command listed in the FAQ to make sure the permissions are set properly on those files.
