Problems with installing Bugzilla on the Windows

Bugzilla is a web-based general-purpose bug tracking system and testing tool. This program allows keeping track of outstanding problems during the development of some software products. Unfortunately, the installation process of this program is not so trivial as I would like to. The installation is command-line based and require some additional software and modules. If you want to use a Bugzilla server you need to have some compatible database management system (like MySQL, SQLite, Oracle, PostgreSQL), a suitable release of Perl 5, some special Perl modules, a compatible web server. On the official webpage ( https://bugzilla.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installing/index.html ) you can find an instruction on how to install it. I am using Windows and wanted to install it but I have faced some problems during installation. I was trying to follow all instructions on the home web page, but obviously, I am doing something wrong and I cannot successfully run it. Whole the time when I am starting my Bugzilla server I am getting an error and cannot start the server at all. Is there are a more detailed guide or some easier way to install Bugzilla server on Windows?

Each time an account is linked to the Windows installation, a registry entry is set, but it is not deleted when you link a new account to the Windows installation. This registry entry has to be removed by hand. To do so press the Windows key + R, type “regedit” and press enter. Here you have to navigate to HKEY_USERS -> $ID of your Windows User$ -> Software -> Microsoft -> Office -> 16.0 -> Common -> Identity -> Identities. In here you will find an entry with a seemingly random name. Search them all for an entry that contains the email address of your old Microsoft subscription account and delete it.
Most of the times after this the installation should work. Sometimes you also have to uninstall Office entirely and reinstall it.

Microsoft Office 365 Abo from TU Wien

TU Wien offers software for students. One software is a Microsoft Office 365 subscription for students to a good price. For this subscription, you receive a Microsoft account to login and download the software you need. After one year this subscription expires and you have to buy a new subscription and receive a new Microsoft account login. When I bought the subscription for the second year, the account on my Windows 8 notebook was not updated to the new credentials, even after multiple successful login attempts. I could not use the Microsoft Office, because it still ran on my old expired account.

Access a website with a recent DNS change on Windows

Pointing a domain to a new location might turn out to be a problem, because most operating systems keep a DNS cache to speed up the resolution of frequently visited sites. If the location changes before the DNS cache is updated the web server is no longer accessible until the cache is updated again.
