  • Alright, so I found the wiki and reset the password, but I am still getting the same error as above. Any other reasons why this would happen?

    There is a wiki article about changing the password for the fog user.

  • I did not. I installed ubuntu, then downloaded and ran the fog installation. Is there a way to fix the fog user issue?

    Usually this problem happens because you created a “fog” user on the system before installing FOG. Did you do this?

  • Ok, so I created a new ftp user called fogstorage. I changed all my settings in the correct places. Now I get this error.

  • I had a similar issue with my fog server when I moved it from a VM to a real box. The issue I had was that when uploading an image it would do the upload but not move it over to /images/. I found that changing the fogstorage user over to an account on the system that had access to the files via ftp worked. I had my password correct too but it just wouldnt take it for some reason.

    Anyway, I dont think there are any security vulnerabilities doing it this way, just hope this helps with your problem.
