Question: Installation of FOG on exsisting Ubuntu w/ LAMP conflicts?



  • Hello. My name is NooB. For now at least. I have a Ubuntu 10.04 w LAMP deployed and in productions. I would like to begin using FOG but am hesitant as I see the package has Apache and MySQL included. I certainly do not wish to deploy/overwrite my current installation, thus my question. Can I deploy package successfully without the inclusion of new apache/mysql? I can add files to web area and insert database to compensate if these files are available? Or am I over thinking this? Thank you for the facts.

    Yes you can, the installer should skip what is already installed… unless the package names are different.

    If you are new to Linux, i would not suggest this route as you will most likely have problems.

    The easiest and most straight forward Distribution to use is Ubuntu.



  • Check this out…

    [QUOTE]In the fog_0.32/lib/redhat Fog install folder, edit the config.sh file and remove the php-gettext from the package list. Remeber to edit the clamav package and a few other pieces outlined the CentOS install guide. Also, PHP 5.2.1+ is needed for Fog .32. CentOS comes with verson 5.1 you should unistall this version, and edit the same config script and change any PHP in the package list to PHP53 [/QUOTE]



  • GOOD & BAD - I’m still waiting for a response as well.

    BAD:
    I uninstalled FOG and reinstalled - created a bunch of headaches. All which I have been able to over come except I’m having some kind of permissions issue with being able to view the volume at the image boot setup. I haven’t lost hope yet as I’m sure it’s just a mixed up password.

    GOOD:
    When I reinstalled at the point it was going to setup MySQL it skipped that setup and just setup a new DB called ‘fog’. As long as you have a root@localhost with -p “” your MySQL DB should stay intact and only fog will be added.
    Apache installed on my end also didn’t install since I already had the newest version. The version in latest FOG install includes Apache2 2.2.20 Server built: NOV 7th 2011 22:48:05

    Hope this helps!
