To continue some recent discussion about Bugzilla, I've got the database and everything set up okay and have gotten to the second round of running checksetup.pl after editing it with my custom values (database user/pass etc).
It's blowing up with some permission errors. Please note that I have set the web server group in the localconfig file to be my group, not 'nobody'/'apache' or blank.
I'm not sure what the can't stat error is, because data/template does in fact exist and is chmod 775.
Checking user setup ...
Warning: you have entered a value for the "webservergroup" parameter
in localconfig, but you are not running this script as root.
This can cause permissions problems and decreased security. If you
experience problems running Bugzilla scripts, log in as root and re-run
this script, or remove the value of the "webservergroup" parameter.
Note that any warnings about "uninitialized values" that you may
see below are caused by this.
Removing existing compiled templates ...
