Fog web login shows weird text characters?

  • So I’m in the middle of trying to set up a new fog server so I can take the old one down and I came across something strange. When I go to login to the web interface there are random currupted looking characters at the bottom of the screen. Thinking that something went wrong with fog I decided to follow the steps fog has for uninstalling and would reinstall. I did that but they are still there. I have no idea what is going on. I don’t feel safe continuing to use it that way as something isn’t right.! I’m okay with blowing fog completely away in any shape or form but I really don’t want to have to reinstall ubuntu as I just transfered a bunch of images over. fogissue.png

    i’ve only seen the “garbage” when viewing the web interface on a mobile device. never impacted functionality. i don’t think they show up on anything newer than the past year in trunk versions of fog

  • @Tom-Elliott Just did a brand new reinstall of Ubuntu 14.04 and same issue. I’m just going to take your word for it that it isn’t anything critical and continue. If there is a way to “fix” what ever it may be please let me know.

  • @Tom-Elliott Version 1.2.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I knew there were some issues with FOG on that version of Ubuntu but I just decided to try it. I don’t think this is the issue though that people were seeing.

    What version of fog?

    Those characters aren’t anything bad. They’re being displayed most likely because your server is running a gzip compression. The parts it can’t properly decompress will come through with those characters.
