Need help setting up bugzilla on any OS

Scott R. Ehrlich
I have tried to install and configure bugzilla (3.0.2) on CentOS 5, Debian
Sarge and Etch, and Ubuntu Feisty and Gutsy.   I started on Windows XP,
but somewhat abandonded that.

Each attempt has blocked me at the same place - after all components are
installed - apache2, mysql-server, phpmyadmin, and bugzilla, and I get the
init script to ask for passwords for the database, the end result is
always:

dbconfig-common: flushing administrative password

Can't connect to the database.
Error: Access denied for user 'bugzilla'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
   Is your database installed and up and running?
   Do you have the correct username and password selected in the
localconfig?



I have reviewed countless web sites for all flavors of Linux I've
mentioned, and every one of them comes back with the same results of
either no solution yet, or the person has manually done something to get
it working.

I do not know mysql, but am certainly willing to learn what is necessary
to get a bugzilla database up and running.

I am no stranger to Debian/Ubuntu, nor CentOS/RedHat, nor Windows.

Whatever OS/distro works, I'll use it.

I've started/stopped/restarted mysql server many times.   Sometimes
phpmyadmin lets me in, other times it needs to know a password.  I use
root for username, and try everything from a blank password to all
passwords I've set up on the system.

I've also tried removing and reinstalling bugzilla to get the config
script going again.   Every time, it is unable to connect to the database.

In some cases (such as Ubuntu gutsy - the latest) the bugzilla database is
shown via phpmyadmin, but there are no tables.

What am I missing?

Thanks much.

Scott

Tosh, Michael J
>From within mysql, you first need to create the database and
useraccount.

Create database bugs;
grant all on bugs.* to 'bugzilla'@'localhost' identified by password
'somepassword';
