3. Installation and Maintenance Guide


If you just want to use Bugzilla, you do not need to install it. None of this chapter is relevant to you. Ask your Bugzilla administrator for the URL to access it from your web browser. You may want to read the User Guide.

Bugzilla can be installed under Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, and perhaps other operating systems. However, if you are setting it up on a dedicated machine and you have control of the operating system to use, the Bugzilla team wholeheartedly recommends Linux as an extremely versatile, stable, and robust operating system that provides an ideal environment for Bugzilla. In that case, you may want to read the Quick Start instructions.

This documentation undoubtedly has bugs; if you find some, please file them here.
