install fog offline
How do you install fog without a internet connection?
The only connection I have to the internet comes off my mobile (cell phone if you are from America )
The file server I use only gets updated via scp, off separate system via apt-get with the use of a configuration file when I go over to a friends place
Yes debian based
Ps is there a search function in the forum?
FOG 1.2.0 is obsolete now, so is Ubuntu 10. And it’s just a bad idea to use anything but the latest LTS version of Ubuntu for a new build.
Until well ago was the official version, this I say, are LiveCD with FOG 1.2. installed so you only have to install and configure.
Fog 1.3.4 still gives errors, we are testing it, so I think this is a good solution to install without connection.
In any case you can always try …

I would not advise using Ubuntu 10 or 14 or FOG 1.2 as a new installation.
@Junkhacker Yes but it works perfectly with version 1.2.0 of Fog And it is built to install in a compatible equipment, it works in P-IV and P-III, in fact we are using it in our school as an image server to restore PCs of last Generation, with OS Win10 and MAX9 (based on Ubuntu 16’04). It is installed in a DELL optiplex 270
@Juan-Antonio ubuntu 10.04? yikes that’s old.
@maxiecool2 The Ondrej ppa is built for Debian, and thus works on Ubuntu. Quote from the page:
I’m available for some freelance work related to the packaging I do in Debian[http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=ondrej%40debian.org&comaint=yes] (and thus in Ubuntu)
And, the fog installer has been installing this package on Debian & Ubuntu for a while. At my house, I’ve setup automated testing for the installer, I test it every day against many distributions of Linux. Results can be viewed here at the moment: http://184.108.40.206:20080/fog_distro_check/reports/
@Wayne-Workman ok this might bring a bit of confusion
I was lead to believe that ppa was specifically for ubuntu not debian itself
While ubuntu is debian based there are differences that could ruin the package or even the system
Exit with a list of the needed packages
I’m pretty sure it does this already (pictured below), that list there can be copied/pasted and you can install those things at your leisure. The problem is you need the ondrej repository configured to get the latest version of the php stuff. You could probably mirror the entire PPA and just have it locally, and just configure /etc/apt/sources.list to use your local mirror. Here’s the link to the PPA that I think you need to mirror: https://launchpad.net/~ondrej/+archive/ubuntu/php
It took a while
I ran the installer several times
And created a package list to download
The only errors from that was for a package that didn’t exist (php-bcmath) and getting checksum files
(Debian 8 64bit default repositories)
Maybe can I ask for a feature request
I was thinking of a flag for the installer to bypass the “apt-get” and other package managers
Maybe an installed packages check instead
Exit with a list of the needed packages
I don’t know how hard it is to do this
Thanks for the reply anyway
@maxiecool2 as for the search function, I’m assuming you’re on mobile, since there’s a search box when you visit the forums on desktop. You can use our search function on mobile here: https://cse.google.com/cse/publicurl?cx=013831856522586480408:mlbymhymgxs&q= , it will search both the forums and wiki.
Tough spot you’re in. While it’s possible to use the fog installer off-line if you have setup local mirrors of the needed repositories & your box configured to use them, I think what’s best here is you take your fog server over to your friends place and install fog there using their internet connection, then bring it back to your place & change it’s IP address via either the updateIP tool or these instructions.
