Debian buster packages


Is it planned to have zammad packages for debian buster, that is out for a few months now ?


Sorry, we currently can’t give you any further ETAs on this topic.

Hi @maaathieu welcome to the community! We’re on it and let you know once we will provide Buster support :+1:

Hi @thorsteneckel, @MrGeneration

Ok, thanks, I’ll try them when they are avaible then

Hey @maaathieu. I wanted to let you know that the Debian package for stable and develop will be ready in about 30 minutes from now :slight_smile:

Hi @thorsteneckel
I gave it a try, but I have issues. The package installed well, but I had an error concerning a mysql connection error. So I created manually the zammad database/user, configures the file /opt/zammad/config/database.yml accordingly and then “dpkg-reconfigure zammad”, to populate the database.
Now I can access the gui, but I can’t create the first user.
The first try, I had in the log “Can’t find config setting ‘system_init_done’”, and now “ERROR – : Email address is already used for other user. (Exceptions::UnprocessableEntity)”
In the database, the use is created (with a NULL password), but zammad does not seem to know it’s configured.
Any idea ?


Best regards

Hi @MrGeneration

I think I found the issue: my mysql root account used the native mysql auth plugin. I tried a new install with a root account using the unix socket base auth, and now everything works.

You might want to consider not using your root user for the Zammad runtime.
It’d be better and saver to use a non privileged user.

zammad runtime use a zammad user limited to the zammad database. the root account is only used during the installation of the deb package, to create the zammad user and database.
