Upload to web server: MantisBT configuration?

Postby CBelanger » Thu Sep 13, 2018 12:30 am

Hello:

I am using Delphi 10.2 Tokyo with madExcept. I have been upgrading a desktop program. The project uses madExcept 4.0.20. Found with this project and madExcept that emails, in any configuration, are not being sent. I consider this a bug, but not my subject of this post, because I wanted to use the web server approach to store bug reports. So the email problem just gave me the incentive to try the web server approach.

We have a VPS Windows Server 2008, R2 site. I tried Bugzilla first, but ran into issues which I could not readily resolve, so I tried MantisBT (latest version).
Setting up Windows IIS, MySQL ok. Ran into some difficulty with PHP, but was resolved by using PHP v5.6 instead of the latest 7.3. Finally was able to run the install.php and that went smoothly.

On to trying this out in my project with madExcept:
I am not clear about what I put into the configuration fields.
for Web Server: http://##.#.###.###/mantisbt
Encrypt is blank
Port is Auto, but it is 80. No ability to change "auto"
No green icon, just red. What is wrong with the web server entry?

next "user name (http auth)" What do I put here? The mantisbt user name? Can it be "administrator"; I did set up another user as Developer; should I use that? Is this the web site's user/pw? or something else?
next "account (bug tracker)" Is this the Mantis user/pw? or something else?

Because the Web Server name is throwing an error (i.e. the icon remain red !), I have no idea what is wrong or for that matter what I should put into the configuration.
Can you please help?
Thank you,
Chuck

So, I noticed that when I clicked on the embedded URL for MantisBT for my web server in the post I just made, that it did not reach the site. Also, it displayed without "http://".
If I simply type ##.#.###.###/mantisbt in the browser, it too, does not usually connect to the site, while specifically typing "http://##.#.###.###/mantisbt" does.

Maybe this is part of the issue? How to resolve this if so?
Thank you,
Chuck
