Installing Testopia on Turnkey Bugzilla

Karl Tinsley's picture

I am trying to install Testopia on Turnkey Bugzilla. According to the Testopia docs, I simply have to untar the Testopia download in the Bugzilla root. I have tried this in /usr/share/bugzilla3, but it doesn't seem to work. What is the Bugzilla root directory in Turnkey Bugzilla?

Also, the instructions say to run after untarring the files. The only I can find is in  /usr/share/bugzilla3/lib. Am I supposed to copy this file into the Bugzilla root directory in order to run it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks for replying. However, that post does not answer my questions. I've read the instructions for installing testopia - what I need is:

1. What is the "bugzilla root" directory?

2. How do I run I know the command - do I have to copy to another directory, or do I run it from the /lib directory? Do I need to modify it or a config file in order for it to work?

Hi Karl,

These are my installation notes that worked for me

# Installation Bugzilla 4.2.3

## Get 4.2.3 install files
1. Goto bugzilla download
## Extract tarball
tar xzvf bugzilla-[version].tar.gz

## Save old config and data from bugzilla directory
1. cd bugzilla-[version]
2. cp ../bugzilla/localconfig* .
3. cp -r ../bugzilla/data .
4. cd ..
## Save old bugzilla directory
1. sudo mv bugzilla bugzilla.old
2. sudo mv bugzilla-[version] bugzilla
## Make link to bugzilla directory
1. cd /usr/bin; sudo rm bugzilla; sudo ln -s /usr/local/bugzilla bugzilla
2. cd /Library/WebServer/Documents; sudo rm bugzilla;sudo ln -s /usr/local/bugzilla bugzilla
Note: In /usr/local I have prepared a command file "linkbugzilla" to do this
## Finalize installation new version
1. cd /usr/local/bugzilla
2. ./
3. In case of errors for missing modules
sudo /usr/bin/perl --all
4. rerun ./
5. Go to Bugzilla URL to check if Bugzilla is starting up
6. Check the new version in the right upper corner
