SOLVED Missing Data After Fog 1.5.7 Upgrade
Was running fog 1.5.6 and i was unable to access the gui, kept getting an error the database couldn’t connect. If i had to guess Ubuntu did an update and broke the connection. I downloaded latest version of fog and ran the installer , however it kept failing on installing the mariadb server and client. So i installed Mariadb 10.3 manually, re ran the setup of maria db server and setup a password. Re ran the fog 1.5.7 installer and still getting the error the db is not accessible. I then went into var/www/fog /lib/configclass.php and entered the new password. Now the issue is fixed on seeing the gui, however now all my data is missing , users, hosts, images. What do i do to fix this ? Thanks for the help.
@Ray-Zuchowski Give this a try:
sudo -i mv /var/lib/mysql /var/lib/mysql-mariadb apt-get remove mariadb-client mariadb-server cp -a /var/lib/mysql-5.7 /var/lib/mysql apt-get install mysql-client mysql-server systemctl start mysql
The folder is there.
@Ray-Zuchowski I think uninstall mariadb and install mysql should work fine, I’m not 100% sure, but that’s where I’d start.
But check the mentioned folder and see if you can find the fog database first.
@Quazz How do i do this ?
This is a known problem on Ubuntu (the database moving when changing to mariadb)
You will likely find your fog database in
Currently, FOG does not try to move to mariadb on Ubuntu for this reason.
If possible, going back to mysql would be the best option I reckon.
