Just Installed Fog 1.3.0-RC-1



  • Noticed this new section in the install script and was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of something that explains more about it? I would like to understand in more depth what is going on with this change

    ########################################################################################
       FOG has adjusted to using a login system to protect what can/cannot be downloaded
       We have detected that you don't have credentials defined to perform the backup
       If you would like the database to be backed up during install please define
       in your /opt/fog/.fogsettings file
    
       fogguiuser='usernameOfFOGGUI'
       fogguipass='passwordOfFOGGUIUser'
    
       You can also re-run this installer as:
    
       fogguiuser='usernameOfFOGGUI' fogguipass='passwordOfFOGGUIUser' ././installfog.sh
     ########################################################################################
    

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for that info. I’ve been a few revisions behind in my prod and nonprod servers. Just got around to doing that today at the recommendation of Tom.

    I second that. Mine are backed up daily anyway, but more backups have never really hurt anyone.

    I would always recommend automatic DB backups.

    This was a change made a while back in trunk. The credentials are used to backup the database during the install. This is also present in a few spots throughout the dashboard in that it will ask for your password to export any information. This is just to harden the security of the system. If you want the installer to backup the DB before making changes follow what this message is telling you, if you don’t want to backup the DB then you will be fine.
