Database connection unavailable



  • Hi there folks!

    Have our fog server running on Windows 10 via Virtual Box (ubuntu) for several months now, with no issues. However, all of a sudden I am getting “Database connection unavailable” message when I attempt to log into the fog admin interface. Hence cannot image machines either.

    I have several snapshots taken as backup measures but even I I restore to these the same thing happens?

    Does anyone know why this is happening?

    Many thanks



  • for me using ubuntu server 18.04.03 LTS running MariaDB 10.1.41 and FOGPROJECT 1.5.7

    this was the final solution

    with the installation / upgrade of fogproject choose a password for mysql : type_here_your_fog_database_password

    then make sure that password is the same as your mysql database:

    login to mysql root with command = mysql -u root

    then use following command to make passwords match fogproject

    SET PASSWORD FOR ‘root’@‘localhost’ = PASSWORD(‘type_here_your_fog_database_password’);

    Greetings

    Jimmy

    See if the steps outline here addresses your issue: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/10006/ubuntu-is-fog-s-enemy

    This is usually the case when fog has been working all along and then it stops for no reason with a database connection issue.
