Bugzilla Trouble

Back from holidays, I discovered that our customer migrated our development server to a new hardware. Without telling anybody of the devlopment team! First thing I noticed was that Bugzilla didn’t work any more: I just got error messages like this: data/versioncache did not return a true value at globals.pl line 628. Googling around returned this mailing list entry which recommends rerunning checksetup.pl. Running ./checksetup.pl in the installation directory (under /etc/var/www/bugzilla) did the trick: everything is fine again. On to the next problem!
