Install fog, load up webpage, "Unable to connect to Database"
I install Fog and get this sad message. I know the issue is mysql not starting, attached is the log from /var/log/mysql/errror.log
Below is some more wonderful output.
toast@bento-13:~/opt/fog_0.33b/bin$ sudo mysql -u root -h bento-13 fog
ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘bento-13’ (111)
Currently running 13.10 in a VM, hopefully that doesn’t matter. I get the same connection error when using my regular system as well.
mysql appears to NOT be working in your situation.
How do you know mysql works? The “It works!” page is not a mysql issue, that’s telling you apache is working fine. The “Unable to connect to Database” shows you that the DATABASE is actually the issue.
Did you try the commands I gave you and it’s not working?
Nope still getting the same error of "Unable to connect to Database"
I know mysql works because the “It works!” default page loads up just fine.
Gonna try Debian 7.4 and 12.04 next, I hear great things about them and eventually, 14.04. Good thing these are on VMs. Consider this solved for now, not interested in wasting time for problems for a distro that isn’t the LTS.
If bento-13 is what you’re logged on as AND this is your fog server, you shouldn’t be trying to load from the hostname.
Try logging into mysql with:
[code]mysql -u root fog[/code]
If you set a password, you’ll likely need:
[code]mysql -u root -p fog[/code]
