Did you modify the default setting of the $WebPath variable in RT’s
If you’re putting the web ui somewhere other than at the root of
$WebPath requires a leading / but no trailing /
$WebPath = “”;
Did you try to access the system with http://hostname only?

Subject: [rt-users] 1st Install, Web Interface broke, can’t begin to
We are new to rt. We've just installed rt2.0.11 on a machine running
hat linux 7.2 and its pre-installed perl 5.6.0.
As I will detail below, everything seems to be installed and
properly: mod-perl compiled statically with apache (as revealed by typing
httpd -l) and so on.
However, when we try to get the web interface, typing either http://hostname/rt2
we get an abortive sort of web page which includes only the top RT banner
telling us we are “Not Logged in” along with a second banner with this
"You are not an authorized user" Below this is the centered table block with gray background where
one normally logs into RT, (or so I guess). However instead of getting
two text input fields and a submit button, the table block is devoid of
any html form elements and includes only RT’s copyright notice.
We cannot get over this hurdle, and of course cannot configure
users, queues or anything else till we do.
Our Apache version is 1.3.23 and we have installed the latest
mod perl and mysql.
Mason and Apache::DBI were installed by hand, all the other
perl modules using make fixdeps.
We can log into the rt database without any problem via the
> mysql -u rt_user -p rt2
works just fine.
Please note that we are cognizant of the need to use apachetcl to
stop and start apache after making any attempts to fix this. But the problem
doesn’t seem to be with Apache. Apache’s error log doesn’t show any
complaints at all. All the same, the relevant parts of httpd.conf follow
Alias /rt2 "/opt/rt2/WebRT/html"
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
Allow from all
Per the RT manual I have also tried the setup above without including
But this makes no difference
Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated
