SOLVED Trunk install, fog.conf vhost file issue

  • Hi,

    Not sure what this, perhaps an installer bug?

    Fresh install Fedora 23. Version 8179.

    During the install script this appears:

     What type of installation would you like to do? [N/s (Normal/Storage)] n
     grep: 2601:243:200:d722::73a8: No such file or directory
     grep: 2601:243:200:d722:d685:64ff:fe01:6a05: No such file or directory
     Would you like DHCP to handle DNS? [Y/n]

    The installer keeps running, but bombs out when restarting Apache. Systemctl status httpd indicates that the fog.conf file has some ill-formatted strings:

    <VirtualHost *:80>        #RewriteEngine On
        KeepAlive Off
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html/
        #RewriteEngine On
        #RewriteRule /management/other/ca.cert.der$ - [L]
        #RewriteRule /management/ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}%{QUERY_STR$
    <VirtualHost *:443>
        KeepAlive Off
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html/


  • @Tom-Elliott Hi - I just ran into the same problem. I’ll go ahead disable ipv6 but thought I’d let you know the development installer grabbed from github still seems to try to include ipv6 in fog.conf

  • I’m pretty sure I’ve added the code buts to only worry about IPv4 but could use confirmation of this.

  • @Sebastian-Roth I think the installer should ignore IPv6 addresses.

  • Moderator

    Not sure if we should still change the installer script to ignore those IPv6 addresses… @Developers ?

  • @kurtblah probably. And there isn’t the man power to do an overhaul on that. IPV6 will have to wait for the 2.0 rewrite.

  • Disabling IPv6 did the trick. I ran:

     sudo echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6

    and the installer ran normally. I’ll need to shut it down permanently.

    Thank you for your help. Is this IPv6 issue consistent in all of the builds?


  • @kurtblah So, do you need IPv6 on this system for some reason?

    If not, here’s instructions to turn it off for you:

    backup interface config:
    cp /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp1s0 /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp1s0.old

    Edit the interface config:
    vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp1s0

    Change these lines to off or zero or no:


    If the lines are not there, you can try to add them.

    Restart the interface - this command is sorta dangerous if the node is far away and the config is bad, the interface could fail to come back up, so keep that in mind:

    ifdown enp1s0;ifup enp1s0

    After doing this, try to re-run the fog installer and see what happens. Hopefully it works.

    To put the old config file back if you want:

    rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp1s0
    cp /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp1s0.old /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp1s0
    ifdown enp1s0;ifup enp1s0



  • no problem. here’s the ip addr:

  • @kurtblah Sorry for so many commands. I’m working through you like I would if I were there at the terminal.

    What is the output of this: ip addr show

  • [root@localhost bin]# systemctl restart httpd

  • @kurtblah Ok, so what happens when that file is left alone, and you run systemctl restart httpd and then systemctl status httpd -l

  • This is where the installer bombs out:

     * Setting up SSL FOG Server...................................OK
     * Restarting Apache2 for fog vhost............................Failed!

  • From what I can tell, the installer is adding lines to the fog.conf file that keeps the httpd service from restarting.

    I can take out the bad lines from the fog.conf file and the httpd service restarts as it should.


  • systemctl enable mariadb

    returns nothing. running the mysql command works fine.

    [root@localhost bin]# mysql
    Welcome to the MariaDB monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
    Your MariaDB connection id is 3
    Server version: 10.0.23-MariaDB MariaDB Server

    Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.
    MariaDB [(none)]> \q

    The munged lines in the fog.conf vhost file and the installer output look to me like IPv6 addresses

  • @kurtblah what about systemctl enable mariadb ?

  • @Wayne-Workman

    [root@localhost ~]# systemctl enable mysqld
    Failed to execute operation: No such file or directory
    [root@localhost ~]# systemctl enable mysql
    Failed to execute operation: No such file or directory

    MariaDB is installed and works.

  • @kurtblah what happens if you manually run systemctl enable mysqld and systemctl enable mysql ?

  • @kurtblah What is the output of getenforce and sestatus and systemctl status firewalld ?
