Solved SVN 4193 clean installation ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS no SQL password popup and webinterface not working
Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS Release: 14.04 Codename: trusty
During the installation of SVN 4193 I’m unable to enter a SQL password and afterwords I get the question to enter one.
* Installing package: mysql-server............................OK * Installing package: mysql-client............................OK ... * Did you leave the mysql password blank during install? (Y/n) y
An other problem I had was that there was no content on http://fog-server/fog/ interface
The content of the interface is been dropped in: /var/www/html/fog and not in /var/www/fog
I recalled from previous versions that the content was on both locations. So after copying it 1 level down I was able to use the fog interface.
- Did you leave the mysql password blank during install? (Y/n) y
This particular sentence shows that you DID NOT enter a mysql password.
I pressed Y because I was unable to enter one…
What do you mean?
If you typed N it would prompt you to type your mysql password.
@Tom-Elliott During the SQL server installation process you normally get a purple screen where you get the opportunity to enter a password and confirm that. That’s what I’m not getting and the reason why i entered Y.
@jjacobs What do you mean purple screen? I don’t force a purple screen any more, on purpose if you’re referring to when you install FOG on ubuntu and it prompted you to set a password three times. The reason, because it was different for one OS where the other it was not. Is there a password set for Mysql or not?
@Tom-Elliott : No the installation of Mysql did not prompt me this message:
So there was no password set in the sql installation.
This is on purpose to make things common between OSs.
So you are correct that the mysql password is left blank. It will ask you any, just in case somebody did this in the back end.
@Tom-Elliott I wasn’t aware of that. does your script add a random password afterwords or will the sql password be blank?
@jjacobs The password will be blank.
You can add your own password afterward, I just wanted a common installation path between all distros.
It’s easier to set a new password, than interrupt an installer on three separate times. Hopefully that makes sense.
My guess as to why your browser isn’t displaying the GUI for you is, the webroot is looking at /var/www but it’s currently pointing at /var/www/html.
You can test this with:
ln -s /var/www/html/fog/ /var/www/fog
@Tom-Elliott Ya that did the job. Tx for the info!
