The upgrade to 2.21.1 requires mantisbt to be run as its own user/group: mantisbt.

I haven't gotten around updating the wiki page (in a long time), but will do that soonish and most likely also move mantisbt back to [community] after that.

If you need configuration inspiration, you can have a look at the wiki pages for cacti and postfixadmin, where I added a lot of info on how running php webapps as a separate user can/should be achieved.

@jamespharvey20: you're absolutely right. will change that asap. haven't been paying too much attention to this PKGBUILD (got busy with [community]).

The configuration files are world readable, which is a security issue since they contain passwords for the database, potentially smtp, and the salt.

I think it would be a good idea if the PKGBUILD set ownership to all /etc/webapps/mantisbt/ files to http:http, permissions 600.

EDIT: I think this will also have the side effect of the initial installation being able to write config_inc.php rather than having it give a write error, which although easier, is a double edged sword because it would probably make a much shortened version potentially leaving out some of the helpful options and comments that are in upstream's which is copied to config_inc.php by the PKGBUILD.

Upgraded to 2.0.0. Added some additional information for upgrading in the post_upgrade hook, leaving the mantisbt instance in a locked state, so you can properly upgrade your database. Sorry it took so long.

Upgraded to 1.3.1. Handle with care, as it has bugs, too:
