Bugfix: variable interpolation in db password


I just installed rt-2.0.7 on a RH Linux-7.1 box with MySQL-3.23.42. I
encountered an error on make install; the attached patch fixes the error.

I had chosen a database password with the character ‘@’ in it. I received
an error during make install saying that the rt_user password was
invalid. Looking up the error stack I saw that the ‘@’ character was
causing variable interpolation in config.pm. The attached patch uses
single quotes instead of double quotes around $DatabasePassword in
config.pm. After applying the patch install worked without a problem.

Hope this helps. Thanks,
