Sql Error

  • Your database connection appears to be invalid. FOG is unable to communicate with the database. There are many reasons why this could be the case. Please check your credentials in /var/www/html/fog/lib/fog/config.class.php. Also confirm that the database is indeed running. If credentials are correct, and the Database service is running, check to ensure your filesystem has enough space.

    Is the error i get when i attempt to update the schema. ive tried the steps here and no go.

    what am i doing wrong?

    i am running ubuntu 16:04 cant access schema update or nothing

  • @Wayne-Workman Ok.

    That what i did and then i re-ran the installer and it worked. Thank You!!

  • These are the only two alterations necessary for installing FOG Trunk on a clean build of Ubuntu 16.

    • When you are ready, run the installer with php_ver='7.0' php_verAdds='-7.0' ./installfog.sh
    • When the installer asks you to update the database, there’s 1 extra step. (in another SSH session) Go to mysql and modify the password setting with ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY '';
    • Then you go to the web interface and update the DB as normal, come back to the installer and complete it as usual.

  • Yeah, I ran the new update wizard for fog off the wiki and it starts up just fine.

    really weird, so weird, i dont even know how to explain what occured or how it got fixed.

    I do think it had something to do with space as i ran this command “rm -rf /home/*.BACKUP” as root so i could clear up space. so im gonna upgrage to a bigger drive like 2 or 3 tb that should do.

    as always thank you Mr Wayne

  • Check server space with
    df -h
    Restart mysql with
    service mysql restart

    You need php 7 and modified mysql pass on Ubuntu 16. I’ll find those and post.
