Redirect /fog/management to root X.X.X.X
Hi - New to fog but been reading through a lot of the posts and can’t see a way to redirect fog landing page to the root http://x.x.x.x.
Note: This is a fresh install
Info: Running Ubuntu 16.04
Running Version 1.3.4
SVN Revision: 6066
@captjoekpr The stackoverflow thread I posted shows how to do it in the apache configuration file - not an .htaccess file. This would be the way I’d recommend doing it.
@Wayne-Workman Fair enough. I keep reading .htaccess is more for admins that don’t have direct/full access to the server where the site lives. But I am guessing it is how everyone got it working here, so I’ll be trying that shortly.
@captjoekpr The idea is to just type an IP in the web browser and it take you exactly where you need to go. The goal isn’t disabling the default page.
@x23piracy Would it not be easier just to disable the default apache site entirely? Since they are both using Port 80, would that not auto direct traffic to the Fog site?

@bluesky Running into the same issue as well on Ubuntu 16.04
Wiki seems easy enough, but it looks like apache2 just defaults to find index.html instead of index.php that was created
Any other ideas?
@Wayne-Workman No worries, ya I am going to look at apache default config
@bluesky sorry about that.
Apache must be configured by default on Ubuntu to not look for an index.php ? That’s the only thing I can think of. I’m going to have to try it on Ubuntu 16 now and see.
Glad you got something working though. Linux is all about possibilities and freedom doing things your way!
@Wayne-Workman Please see my previous reply to you, you can see exactly what I did including the contents of the php file.
@bluesky I just tried the steps in the wiki verbatim and they work fine. I’m not sure what is wrong, are you replacing the x.x.x.x with the server IP address?
@x23piracy Thanks, this worked!

create a index.html in /var/www with the following content:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=/fog">
@Wayne-Workman Hi Wayne - I just cant seem to get this to work following the instructions on wiki.
I have started with fresh install of Ubuntu 16 and FOG . I dont want to waste your time but thought I would provide the update.
1.) ls -l /var/www/html/index.php
-rwxr–r-- 1 root www-data 78 Feb 16 09:24 /var/www/html/index.php
2.) Contents of above file:
Latest Version: 1.3.4
Latest Development Version: 1.3.5-RC-7
Latest SVN Version: 6065
4.) Server Version: Apache/2.4.25 (Ubuntu) OpenSSL/1.0.2k
@Wayne-Workman Ok Thanks thats what I will do. Thanks for all your help. So far, I have FOG up and running in a school district…just now trying to tweak a few things
@bluesky I can assure you that the wiki article I posted does work. Others and myself have used it many times on many different OSs. Starting over is probably best since you’re just playing around with fog.
@Wayne-Workman I think I am going to start all over with fresh install. I am using virtual box so I can destroy and start over easily. I suspect I have touched to many files made to many config changes.
@Wayne-Workman No its not working, typing "X.X.X.X "into the browser takes me to the index of / page. interestingly enough if i type local host, it takes me to the Apache Debian default page then redirects me to the fog web console
@bluesky It’s not working?
