Sudo ./installfog.sh command not found



  • I am fairly new to linux but I believe I am doing everything correctly but am not understanding why the command will not execute.

    I am following step by step on the wiki ([url]http://fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Ubuntu_12.04[/url]) and I am using Ubuntu 13.10 with fog 1.2.0.

    The directory I am in is /Desktop/fog/bin$
    When I run the command [B]ls [/B]it shows installfog.sh but then when I run command [B]sudo ./installfog.sh [/B]it comes back with “sudo: ./installfog.sh: command not found”.

    I have even tried [B]sudo ./inst [/B]and then tab to populate the file name but nothing happens.

    Am I missing something?

    If I remember correctly, Ubuntu by default will provided colorized output. If installfog.sh was executable, it would be highlighted a different color. Run:

    [B]ls -l[/B]

    This will show the permissions on the file. You should see [B]-rwxr-xr-x[/B] for permissions. If you don’t have any executable bits, you’ll get the response you got. How do you fix it? For a start, you could run:

    [B]sudo chmod 755 installfog.sh[/B]

    This will only make that first script executable. In the same directory, there’s a .install.sh file that probably won’t have executable rights either.

    It seems you must have extracted the files in a strange way because you should already have the correct permissions. When you get the tar.gz from the website, run tar to extract the files to preserve permissions:

    [B]tar zxvf fog_1.2.0.tar.gz[/B]

    This will extract everything out into your current directory. Then all the permissions should be correct.

    Also, the user you created needs to HAVE sudo privileges.

    also, you should NOT create a user named fog for your fog server. the install script is going to want to create that user.

    you seem to be following, step by step, the instructions on how to install fog 0.32, not fog 1.2.0
    perhaps it’s for the best that you ran into a problem at the start, if you want fog 1.2.0
