OTRS installation on RHEL 8 - LinuxConfig.org

OTRS is an open source service management solution used by many companies around the world. It's extensibility and ability to integrate with other systems no doubt add to it's popularity. Written in perl, this software will run on mostly anything, and it's low requirement on resources makes it ideal even for a small business to start ticketing, or standardize their internal processes.

Hi
Your description is great, thanks for this.
You mentioned that it works only for 6.0.14.
Can you explain the difference to the procedure for 6.0.15 ?
Or best would be to do it for 6.0.23, the latest one.
Thanks
Jaro

Hi Jaro,

Welcome to our forums, and sorry for the late reply. At the time this article was written, RHEL8 was beta, and had limited support, specifically OTRS 6.0.15 had compatibility issues. Time heals such wounds, and also brings new versions on both sides. I’ll look into the latest OTRS version, and report back to you.

I’m having that permission issue:

Permission error, but the /opt/otrs folder has permission 0755 for otrs:apache.

id otrs => uid=1000(otrs) gid=1000(otrs) groups=1000(otrs),48(apache)
