Fog Password Scheme
giammy last edited by
I’m trying to understand the password scheme of FOG:
I have a (more or less) working configuration, but
I’d like to make things more clear!
I summarize what I have uderstand up to now …
if someone wants to integrate, perhaps it will be usefull
The reference Fog Installation installation is a
Linux box (Debian) with both storage node and Web UI
(DNS and DHCP are on different machines), and 1 user
- user: fog
- pass: mypass
On the Linux box I can access via ssh with user fog,
ftp, with user fog, and tftp
FOG PASSWORD CONFIGURATION
In the FOG configuration file commons/config.php
define( “MYSQL_DATABASE”, “fog” );
define( “MYSQL_USERNAME”, “root” );
define( “MYSQL_PASSWORD”, “mypass” );
This password is used by the Web UI to access the database.
If wrong - the Web UI says: “Unable to connect to database.”
define( “TFTP_FTP_USERNAME”, “fog” );
define( “TFTP_FTP_PASSWORD”, “mypass” );
This password is used for the FTP access?
(tftp do not need password)
define( “STORAGE_FTP_USERNAME”, “fog” );
define( “STORAGE_FTP_PASSWORD”, “mypass” );
And this password? For FTP? And the previous one?
Which is the difference between the 2?
On the Fog Web UI I have:
Other Information -> Fog Settings
FOG Storage Nodes
(in my configuration here I have a password in the form fsnnnn …
created at installation time: where is it used?)
(same as TFTP_FTP_PASSWORD I imagine)
Storage Management -> Edit Storage Node Definition
Management Username: fog
Management Password: mypass
(this must match the FTP password of the PC?)
