checksetup.pl "Use of uninitialized value" errors

I'm installing bugzilla (2.19) under RedHat 9.
Attempts to run checksetup.pl (using Perl 5.8.0)
result in a slew of messages of the form:

checksetup.pl: Use of uninitialized value in chown at checksetup.pl line
1079.
[Wed Aug  4 17:02:26 2004] checksetup.pl: Use of uninitialized value in
chown at checksetup.pl line 1079.
Use of uninitialized value in chown at checksetup.pl line 1090 (#1)
[Wed Aug  4 17:02:26 2004] checksetup.pl: Use of uninitialized value in
chown at checksetup.pl line 1090.
[Wed Aug  4 17:02:26 2004] checksetup.pl: Use of uninitialized value in
chown at checksetup.pl line 1090.

.... and a whole bunch more ...

Anyone know what this is about?

Thank you,

You most likely have $webservergroup set incorrectly in the localconfig 
file.  It needs to be set to match the Group directive in the httpd.conf 
file.  You also need to be either root, or a user that's a member of 
that group when you run checksetup.pl.  If you are neither of those, 
then $webservergroup should be left blank.

You are correct - I had the $webservergroup set to the owner ("apache"), 
not the group.  That took care of the "chown" errors in checksetup.
Thank you.

But I still can't access the editparams.cgi page.  Note that when I run 
checksetup it never asks me about an administrator, even though I 
started with a fresh bugzilla tarball.  Where does it do that?  I ran it 
twice (once, then again after editing localconfig).  Here's the result, FYI:

"Use of uninitialized value" when clicking on "login again" link
We migrated a Bugzilla 2.20 installation from one server to another. Everything seems to work just fine, except when clicking on the "log in again" link after a logout.

Using "+" or "||"
