SOLVED Fog Installation Error - Cannot restart MySQL
- FOG Version: 1.3.0-RC2
- OS: Centos 6
I’m trying to update from RC2 to the latest (RC13 but this happend on RC11 as well).
The installation fails when trying to restart mysql. The error looks like this:
* Setting up and starting MySQL...............................Failed!
When I try to manually start mysql after that I get this:
/etc/init.d/mysqld: line 103: syntax error near unexpected token `fi' /etc/init.d/mysqld: line 103: ` fi'
So I go into the mysqld init file and I see the following:
# If startsos if [ "$1" = "sos" ] ; then # MYOPTIONS="$MYOPTIONS --skip-grant-tables --skip-networking" fi
When I remove the comment from the MYOPTIONS line, everything starts correctly, but fog is still on RC2.
@88fingerslukee Thanks for the remote session. I’d have never found it. This makes sense though. The other threads that had the issue only stated the uncommented it and things worked, I didn’t know this was happening on any re-install.
So apparently, unbeknownst to me, the init.d was being commented simply because it contains one of the things I’m searching for (skip-networking). I’m sorry I screwed it up Please forgive?
@88fingerslukee FOG is not rewriting the init.d file. My “clarify” is referring to me clarifying that we only install the fog service files.
I don’t know how to clarify that. What I know is that the installer fails at trying to restart mysqld. If I edit the mysqld init file adn re-run the installer, the init file is overwritten.
Nothing else gets installed because of the failure.
@88fingerslukee clarify it only installs the fog service init files
@88fingerslukee the installer does not touch any init files. Ever.
I removed the folder and reran the installer and it still fails. It doesn’t create any files in /var/www/fog or /var/www/html/fog
How do I change the installer so that it doesn’t overwrite my myslqd init file?
The reason it’s still showing rc2 is most likely due to what I call bleedover.
sudo rm -rf /var/www/fog /var/www/html/fogthen rerun the installer.

in bash, if statements cannot have empty ‘happenings’.
Comment out all three lines and try again.
