Freebsd install


#1

I’m trying to install RT on a freebsd server, the install failed the
first time since I messed up the mysql path so I fixed that and tried
make install again and it says cant make database rt, it exists, then it
says table queue_acl already exists… so I tried to do a make upgrade and
then I got an error… chgrp: root: illegal group name

any ideas what I can do to fix the problems, or how can I do a clean
install…

The “root” group doesn’t exist under FreeBSD. Just edit the makefile to
use “wheel” or something similar for the chgrp.

Thanks to Matthew Jarrett too for your help… I did delete the RT database
out of Mysql and I found the chgrp in the makefile and changed that to
wheel, ahd that seems to have fixed everything…

thanks for your help!
