Tried both the solutions below, stop/start apache, but still no go. Is it
possible to run RT without FastCGI or an alternative to FastCGI? It could be
Apache setup, but I like to eliminate the possibility, etc.

Change your SiteConfig to:

Set($WebBaseURL , “”);
Set($WebImagesURL , “/NoAuth/images/”);

Drop all the webport stuff - you don’t need it.

In your rt.conf file, add:

Alias /rt/NoAuth/images/ /opt/rt3/share/html/NoAuth/images/

Or possibly just: Alias NoAuth/images/ /opt/rt3/share/html/NoAuth/images/

The difference is how RT has relative paths setup in all the Perl code…
I am not sure.

Lastly, change DocumentRoot in rt.conf to:


If that doesn’t work, I’d suggest backing out of making RT the root of your
virtual server and just make it a subdirectory and see if you can get it
going that way:

Set($WebPath , “/rt”);
Set($WebBaseURL , “”);
Set($WebImagesURL , $WebPath . “/NoAuth/images/”);

In rt.conf

Alias /rt/NoAuth/images/ /opt/rt3/share/html/NoAuth/images/
ScriptAlias /rt /opt/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi/
DocumentRoot /opt/rt3

Your RT URL would then be: (don’t forget the
trailing slash)

If the latter setup works, you are just going to have to play around with
your Apache virtual directory setup until you get it working correctly.
