RT2 + stats package + fastcgi

We’ve been running RT1 to date - but now we’d like to add in attachments via
the web gui.

So I’ve just started evaluating RT2 running on Mandrake 9.1 using fastcgi
(Mysql 4.0.11 and Apache 1.3.27 as supplied with Mandrake 9.1).

I seem to have satisfied all the perl module dependancies, I’ve got the Web
Gui up and running and I’ve ported across some RT1 tickets - so far so good.
I can log in and at first glance all the ported data seems to be ok.

So I thought I’d try adding in the stats package. I’ve loaded
Apache::GD::Graph.

And I’ve added the following to /etc/httpd/conf/commonhttpd.conf.

<Location /rt2/chart>
SetHandler perl-script
PerlHandler +Apache::GD::Graph

I can access the http://localhost/rt2/Statistics/ page ok, and view the
tables etc., but get no graphs.

Anyone know what I need to do to see the graphs?

cheers,

Ian

Which version of the statistics package did You install? Where did You
download it?

Harald,

I got it from http://www.tzi.de/~hollow/stats.tar.gz.
Is there a later/alternate version?

cheers,

Ian

Any reason you’re starting with another old version instead of RT3?

First, is GD working?

Try:
http://yourwebsite.com/rt2/chart?type=area&x_labels=[Wed%2019,Thu%2020,Fri%2
021,Mon%2024,Tue%2025]&data1=[0,0,0,0,0]&data2=[0,0,0,0,0]&data3=[0,0,0,0,0]

It will be a graph with one line but if it shows, then you at
least know if GD is working.

Also make sure the last bracket is part of the url. Looking at it here it
doesn’t seem to be part of the link and I have no idea how to fix it.-----Original Message-----

Only because it looked like I had to at least get the RT1 data into an RT2
database, even if I want to use RT3 (which I haven’t discounted yet).

The perl packages required look pretty similar for both.

I also thought I could get away from having to manually install a recent
version of Mysql (RT3 README says it requires version 4.0.13). RT2 only
requires version 3.23.38 or later (Mandrake 9.1 comes with 4.0.11) - so I
figured that saved me having to install Mysql from source (potentially
problematic - I’ve never done it), or binary (potentially unoptomised for my
system). I already have a working mysql on the system - why change it if it
ain’t broke.

Installing it also looked like a good way of checking the data transferred
across correctly after using the import script.

RT2 also seemed to fit our immediate requirement of supporting attachments.

What are the advantages in going to RT3 over RT2? (Links to comparisons
between the 2 gratefully accepted - web gui speed, minimum system
requirements [cpu speed, RAM], etc.)

What are the negatives in going to RT3?

I may go to RT3 eventually, but I thought I’d at least evaluate RT2 before
doing the extra work.

cheers,

Ian
