  1. Good evening friends,

    I am having serious problem with mantis.
    I installed the new version 1.2.5 and the graphics do not work, simply does not display any image.

    I would have to install any previous version to begin work? On windows using wamp functioned normally, but when made ​​available on Linux, it crashed.

    Version MySQL5.0.92-community
    Version cPanel11.28.87-RELEASE_51188
    Version PHP5.2.14
    Version Apache2.2.17

  2. @Everton Gonçalves, this is not the place to ask questions like these, but more to make remarks like: Thank for the 1.2.5 release great work!. My I urge you to visit and then e.g. visit the forum and re-ask your question there. Not that we do not want to help, just a Blog is not the place to ask for help.

  3. Thanks for the release and the fixes! I’m thinking about doing a “status display view” for a wall monitor, so a development team can see current and new incoming issues.

  4. Until the MantisBT maintainers see the light and finally provide .patch files for UNIX users and Windows users with a sufficiently advanced environment, I’ll keep explaining how to do so (first time was for Mantis 1.2.4.

    If you don’t have MantisBT checked out yet:

    git clone
    git diff --no-prefix release-1.2.4..release-1.2.5 > mantis-1.2.4-to-1.2.5.patch


    git pull
    git diff --no-prefix release-1.2.4..release-1.2.5 > mantis-1.2.4-to-1.2.5.patch

    Apply the patch to your existing code with:

    cd /your/mantis/directory
    patch -p0 < mantis-1.2.4-to-1.2.5.patch

  5. Thanks Wim – a few simple lines saved me many hours and much puzzlement!

  6. Keep up the good work!

    I do however have a question as I started participating in patching Mantis with minor changes:

    How do I promote a change to a release?

    Example: “ability to search in custom fields”. Patch is there, works fine, but how does such a change make it into a next release?
