Newbie new install can't login as root

I’m not getting a denied message it just returns to the login prompt. This is
from the web UI I even double checked the password by changing it on the
command line which works fine.

New install with apache 1.3, rt 2.0.14, mysql 2.23.51

Had no issues with the install make testdeps comes back clean except this
error.

yes I did instal Apache::DBI it would not start with out it. So I just did a
perl -MCPAN -e ‘install Apache::DBI’ for it.On Friday 23 August 2002 10:19, you wrote:

Although maybe Apache wouldn’t start if it wasn’t there, not sure.

okay I have a change here. I messed around with some of the file perms and now
I get an error on the web UI that I have the wrong user name or password for
the root user. I tried password as the pass even though I changed it on the
command line like the manule suggests.On Friday 23 August 2002 10:28, Daniel F. Chief Security Engineer - wrote:

This is the only error I can find and I have set the password via the command
line.

Somene else (Josh Rowe) mentioned that a particular version of
Exception::Class may be causing errors, and upgrading it might be a Good
Thing;

: I upgraded Exception::Class to 1.04 and the dependancy tests all worked
: fine.

TIA for any help.

Note that whenever you (re)install perl libraries related to RT, you will
need to fully stop and then start apache. Although this may not be your
problem, doing this (to get around any perl library caching that
apache/mod_perl is doing) does make things a lot easier.

okay I have a change here. I messed around with some of the file perms and
now I get an error on the web UI that I have the wrong user name or
password for the root user. I tried password as the pass even though I
changed it on the command line like the manule suggests.

This is the only error I can find and I have set the password via the command
line.

From the apache access_log
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - - [23/Aug/2002:17:08:00 -0500] “POST / HTTP/1.1” 200 3145
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - - [23/Aug/2002:17:08:00 -0500] “GET /NoAuth/webrt.css
HTTP/1.1” 200 1533

The above indicates a successful transfer (200) of the login screen (/)
and the style sheet (webrt.css), and doesn’t immediately say ‘weird
permissions problem’. I suspect that your problem may actually lie in
your web browser. Both Mozilla 0.97 and Opera have ‘issues’ with RT
(mainly due to caching) documented in RT/FM (http://www.fsck.com/rtfm/).

Is there some kind of weird premissions problem.
