Setting up OTRS on CEntOS 5.5

OTRS (Open Ticket Request System) is a great open source ticketing system with a pretty clean interface, written entirely in Perl.  Below are some notes from setting this up on Centos 5.5, see the website above for full install instructions.

some things to remember:

run /opt/otrs/bin/otrs.checkModules to verify that everything is installed correctly, RPMForge yum repo can help with Perl packages

use generic agent to automagically move tickets/delete tickets.  This works great for deleting stuff in the junk folder.

set up 2.4.9, not 3.0 (the interface was significantly changed in 3.0, not used to it yet.  I think there was another reason for this as well, but I can't remember this right now).

remember to set up mysqld and httpd with chkconfig --levels 2345 <daemon> on
