Fog error access web

  • Hi everyone,
    I installed the 1.1.0 version of fog,
    I can access the fog via [url]http://ip/fog/management[/url].
    He then asked me to update, here is what appears:

    "Database Schema Installer / Updater
    Your FOG database schema is not up to date, Either Because You-have updated or FOG FOG this is a new installation. If this is a upgrade, we highly recommend you backup your FOG That before updating the database schema (This Will allow you to return the previous installed version.)
    If You Would like to backup your database FOG you can do so using my MySql Administrator or by running the command in a terminal Following window (Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal), This Will save sqldump in your home ~; mysqldump - allow-keywords-x-v fog> fogbackup.sql
    Are you sure you wish to install / update the FOG database?

    install / upgrade now> I click on the next page and it gives me a bunch of error messages:

    Have you an idea of the problem? apparently this is related to the database, but should he do?

    Best regards

  • Hello to all the problem is not resolved, but I re-installed a vm apparently my OS 14.04 LTS server was not really advisable after the official doc

    So I redid a vm:

    OS: Ubuntu 12.04
    FOG Version: 0.32

    I managed without too much trouble to install FOG, I can go to the web interface. I recorded a machine (IP + MAC address). Then I started a task to upload the image to the server, it puts “the started task” but nothing happens and if I reload the page it says mssage following error: “Unable to start task”

    ping works well between the FOG server and the client machien (ubuntu 14.04 LTS)

    Do you have any ideas? ^ ^

    Thank you again for your help

    I just updated to r1852 and yes I ran exactly into the same issue. Looks like the new file gets generated with a password in the " define(‘DATABASE_PASSWORD’, ‘99158f’);"

    Open file using:

    [CODE]sudo nano /var/www/fog/lib/fog/Config.class.php

    Edit the with the Database_Password to resemble the following:
    [CODE] private static function db_settings()
    define(‘DATABASE_TYPE’, ‘mysql’); // mysql or ora$
    define(‘DATABASE_HOST’, ‘localhost’);
    define(‘DATABASE_NAME’, ‘fog’);
    define(‘DATABASE_USERNAME’, ‘root’);
    define(‘DATABASE_PASSWORD’, ‘’);

    Then go to the web gui and hit upgrade/install button. It should bring up a login link and get you back to “Foggin”

    Tom has also informed me to change my /opt/fog/.fogsettings file to remove the password in snmysqlpass.

    Can you verify 100% that /var/www/fog/commons/config.php does not exist on your machine? This file is vital for mysql connects.

  • from earlier post:
    Lubuntu -> (Linux fog2 3.13.0-24-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Thu Apr 10 19:08:14 UTC 2014 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux)

    Here are the settings FOG will use:
    Base Linux: Debian
    Detected Linux Distribution: Ubuntu
    Installation Type: Normal Server
    Server IP Address:
    DHCP router Address:
    DHCP DNS Address:
    Interface: eth0
    Using FOG DHCP: 0
    Internationalization: 0
    Donate: 0

         DHCP will NOT be setup but you must setup your
         current DHCP server to use FOG for PXE services.
         On a Linux DHCP server you must set:
         On a Windows DHCP server you must set:
             option 066 & 067

    Option 066 is the IP of the FOG Server: (e.g.
    Option 067 is the undionly.kpxe file: (e.g. undionly.kpxe)

    We will need to know your os and a posting of your install log wouldnt hurt.

  • So I updated to the latest SVN 1848 (in hopes of solving the issue where the images are not displayed if a master node is not present in the same imaging group as an image) … BUT after doing the latest install - noticed that the database schema will not migrate over.

    Here are some logs:

    I’m not a PHP expert, but it seems like this function get() is not well-liked by PHP and was an issue in fog 32 … hence the PHP update for the new fog. It looks like the get() function craps out at a critical time to get the version, and all sequential calls for mysql shit the bed in sequence. Is there a way to avoid using get() ?

    Result: browsing to localhost (in my case my IP since mysql is bound to an ip) and doing a schema update results in a blank page having only the fog banner image and “database schema installer / updater title”

    Note: I am 100% sure that I did not set a password - becuase I am able to login into localhost/phpmyadmin with root/null and see the entire database. so i am very sure that my root has a blank password … plus … c’mon, I can log in via phpmyadmin - so its running correctly.

  • is it me or /var/www/fog/commons/config.php file does not exist … I’m running the latest 1848 SVN version of fog , and having issues updating the schema …

    Could you attach your install log for fog?
    What OS is Fog installed on?

    It may be an issue with the config.php for your mysql settings. If you set a password you will need to change the /var/www/fog/commons/config.php to match your Database password.
