Installing Bugzilla data on a drive other than C drive
I have installed Bugzilla version 4.0.2 on Windows Small Business Server 2011. Currently, Bugzilla is installed on C drive but I want to move the software to D drive.
I have following questions:
1. Is it possible to install Bugzilla along with prerequisite software on D drive?
2. Is it possible to install database (SQL database) on D drive keeping Bugzilla software on C drive?
