Re: ERROR: There was an error in your report? (When trying to submit new bug)
I had the same problem with my installation.
To solve the problem, I set the following in the /Mantis/default/config_inc1.php file: $g_allow_file_upload = OFF;
It was previously set to ON.

ERROR: There was an error in your report? (When trying to submit new bug)
I installed the latest version of Mantis which is 0.17.5 on a Redhat 7.3 installation with php and mysql-php version 4.1.2-7.
My previous installation was on redhat 7.2, with php 4.0.6-7, and php-mysql being the same.
On the new system (0.17.5), I can add & change employees, and the same with projects. I can also add & change users and do everything normally.
However, when I try and add a new bug to a project, (and select all info from the required drop down boxes, and supply info in the required places), I get the following error:
ERROR: There was an error in your report.
You must select a category
You must select a severity
You must select a reproducibility
You must enter a summary
You must enter a description
(With a button saying "Go Back".
I go back, and add all the info again, and the same thing happens.
PLEASE could anybody be kind enough to help out on this one.
I would REALLLLY appreciate it.

This was the project that convinced my boss
We'd been looking for a bug-tracking system to update our paper based system for a while. I've tried 'em all (including the powerful yet monster bugzilla).
This is the project that showed him what OS was capable of. Not only is it a good lightweight bug-tracker but the code is well laid out and a joy to customise.
Vast improvement over Bugzilla..
With the prospect of going through another painful Bugzilla install, I decided to give Mantis a try. Less than an hour later Mantis was installed and running perfectly. After using it for two weeks now, I have to say that Mantis is the most well-thought-out bug tracking system I have used yet. Also using it to manage feature requests.
I have just installed it for our technical support center. It looks fine, feature-complete for our needs, and was defenetely easy to install.
Mantis with register_globals set to 'off'
Unfortunately, Mantis does not function at all if
register_globals flag in php.ini is set to 'off'.
If you want Mantis to co-exist with other PHP code
that requires this setting to be 'off', you can
resort to a simple workaround.
Create .htaccess in the Mantis' directory, it
should contain only one line (unless you need to
put there some other directives):
php_flag register_globals on
Then make sure that Apache will read this
file - include the following lines in your
Of course, this solution is for PHP+Apache :)
Works great, less filling!
We are using Mantis on site and it has been trouble free (with the exception of PHP Windows2K probelms) and the people working on it are diligent at working through feature requests. It was a slam dunk to install and get running. I look forward to growing with the product!
Re: Hits Exactly the Right Spot
This program is by far the best. It fit our needs almost exactly. If you're looking for a bug tracking system... stop looking and download Mantis. Thanks Kenzaburo Ito!
