Description Andreas Girgensohn 2013-07-29 22:25:20 UTC
Description of problem:

After upgrading from Fedora 17 to Fedora 18 with yum, access to Bugzilla was denied.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Bugzilla in Fedora 17
2. Upgrade to Fedora 18 with yum.
3. Access http://server/bugzilla from another system.

Actual results:

403 Forbidden

In /var/log/httpd/error_log:

[Mon Jul 29 15:10:57.452342 2013] [authz_core:error] [pid 2595] [client] AH01630: client denied by server configuration: /usr/share/bugzilla/

Additional info:

This is very similar to bug 905353 with the difference that access is from another system.  Replacing "Require local" with "Require all granted" in /etc/httpd/conf.d/bugzilla.conf fixes the problem.

Renaming /etc/httpd/conf.d/bugzilla.conf and /usr/share/bugzilla and running "yum reinstall bugzilla" does not fix the problem.  Maybe bugzilla cannot be accessed from other systems in the default configuration even without an upgrade from a previous Fedora version.

Comment 1 Emmanuel Seyman 2013-08-04 12:21:40 UTC
Looking back at it, "Require local" is indeed less appropriate than ""Require all granted". I'll change this and issue out an update.
