    Make sure your connecting to the proper database. The file /var/www/fog/lib/fog/Config.class.php should have only 4 lines that really deal with connecting to the database server. They fall under the method db_settings.

    The major ones to be aware of are:

    Make sure these values are set correctly. Also verify the DATABASE_NAME is set correctly pertaining to your database (default is fog)

    The USERNAME for a Server is typically root

    The HOST for a server is typically or localhost

    The password is whatever you set during install time if you set one. If not it will most likely be “” or ‘’

    If you’re not connecting to and actually connecting to an IP address of your fog server (e.g. Then chances are, i’m going to guess here, you’re running ubuntu or debian derivative of some sort? Make sure the /etc/mysql/my.cnf has a commented bind-address line and if you have to change this line to make it commented (make it look like #bind-address), restart the mysql service.[code]sudo service mysql restart[/code]

    Did you verify that Mysql was running?

    try this:
    sudo service mysql restart[/code]
