Database Schema Installer/ Updater
- FOG Version: 1.3.5 RC 13
- OS: Ubuntu 16.04
- Service Version:
Just upgraded from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04 and updated FOG.

Now when I attempt to launch fog in Firefox on the server (localhost), I get following error message:

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.

Nothing should be changed in that file, make your changes inside of
/opt/fog/.fogsettingsso that they are permanent.
Can you access the database with any of these?
mysql -D fog mysql -h localhost -D fog mysql -h 127.0.0.1 -D fog mysql -h localhost -D fog -u root -p mysql -h 127.0.0.1 -D fog -u root -p
@templink Is there a password defined for the database in the config.class.php file?
I’ve never changed the credentials. So as far as I know, they are correct. My database has no password.
Does your database have a password set for it?
