Possible FOG installer/updater chmod typo?

  • Server
    • FOG Version: 1.4.0-RC-5
    • OS: Ubuntu 14.04.01 LTS

    The following looks like a possible typo in the fog installer/updater for chmod.

    “chmod: cannot access ‘/var/log/php*fpm’: No such file or directory”

    It should probably be set to "/var/log/php*fpm.log"
    instead of the current string “/var/log/php*fpm”.

    It’s possible this is just a remnant from when my server was updated from php5 to php7.0, since I did have problems with that as outlined in the already solved topic found at https://forums.fogproject.org/post/83191 . However, I thought I would post it anyway since it’s possible others could be affected as well, and it will apparently prevent php logging for FOG. Can anyone else confirm this error in their …/fogproject/bin/error_logs/fog_error_…log file? Or is it just me?

  • Will do. I agree, not an issue for me. Thanks for letting me know.

    @utopia wait for update. It wasn’t really hitting anything so not the end if the world I don’t think.

  • So within the /var/log folder I should have a subfolder named php7.1-fpm. Then what should it’s ownership, permissions, and contents be if I choose to try to create it manually? Or should I just wait for a dev-branch update to do this for me?

    That command is correct, except I think it’s as you said (leftovers).

    I’ll update the installer to hopefully correct for this as well.

    The reason for the command is to update a folder named php-fpm (though it could be anything like php5-fpm php7.0-fpm etc…
